The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are scheduled to attend the event tonight, and as we discussed on Friday, the organizers have requested participants rewear or wear sustainable fashion. Let’s see if our hopes and wishes came true for Kate – and as for William, I suspect he, too, will rewear something.
As photos become available, we’ll pop in and add them. The Duke and Duchess are typically the last to arrive, at about 6:30 p.m. local time The link below indicates the other arrivals begin at about 5:00 p.m.
Please post your own thoughts and pictures below!
You can watch the red carpet on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook @BAFTA. It begins at 5pm GMT.
The ceremony will be broadcast in selected countries. More info here: https://t.co/xU1w4hOPVz

Update: I wonder if I will be in the minority here in my happiness at seeing the gold and white McQueen again. Sneaky Kate fooled us all and actually repeated a tour gown. The gown was originally worn in Malaysia during the fall 2012 tour. Regal Fille’s post is here. The original OoS post is here.
Looking at this outing, it is astounding how much more polished Kate looks. She’s always been a very pretty woman, don’t get me wrong, but she has upped her game considerably in the last 7.5 years. She did a nuanced “Marying” of the gown. The sleeves are now lined, and to my eye, narrower and sleeker.
Well, thanks to Twitter we have lightening fast identification on the necklace and earrings. New, from Van Cleef and Arpels, Magic Alhambra. Thanks to Replicate Royalty, who is a good person to follow on Twitter for these things.

Camilla also has a pair of the Alhambra earrings, the all-diamond version, which she wore to the Prince’s Trust Comedy Gala, back in 2012.
The sparkly clutch is by Anya Hindmarch.

To complete the outfit, Jimmy Choo pumps. Thank heavens for Twitter. The royal couple isn’t in their seats yet and every aspect of the Duchess’ outfit has been identified ; ). The shoes have also been traced to Madeleine’s outing at last year’s Korean State Visit. Has there been inter-family borrowing ; )?
