Ooh I love her hair and makeup. But the dress is a no from me. I think it might've looked better cocktail length. The skirt just makes it a bit too much. Love her though!

My eyes!

Christmas wrapping paper?

Jesus!

Agree with rah hair and make up great but the dress is a no!

My late grandma was a seamstress. She used to have bags of scrap material going back to the 60s - the dress makes me think of that bag grin

Ahhh so that's what happens to old sofas when they get chucked away.

Ooo that lipstick really ages her

And that dress is ... Well it's definitely a look!

No, just no it's bloody awful.

I really like her, but I think she tends to go for pieces that wear her rather than the other way round. I think to carry off quirky you really need to own it.

She insta-Ed her options for this event and it looked like there were better choices for her.

Don't like the hair - taily at the ends.

Sorry. Think she's really talented at her job but she's no style icon imho.

She looks a complete fucking mess.

Shame as I quite like her but bloody hellfire, no.

tribpot Sat 18-Feb-17 21:28:22

I think people who wear outfits they can tell are pretty 'out there' to such events are quite brave. I know that I would play it utterly safe - partly because I don't care and partly because I couldn't be arsed dealing with the ludicrous Twitter memes when you have your leg sticking out in a funny way (Angelina).

So, kudos to her for giving it a bash, but I think the dress is dreadful.

Good god Edith. It all went tits up.

OddShoe Sat 18-Feb-17 21:34:35

Oh jeez, no!

The dress, the hair and the make up are all wrong together. A high neckline doesn't suit hair hanging down over it.

NoBiggie Sat 18-Feb-17 21:36:05

She isn't looking great at the moment I don't know if it's he hair or lipstick but she's aged a lot and the dress is very unflattering.

Tessticklesyourfancy Sat 18-Feb-17 22:04:52

Did someone pinch her mirror?

SequinsOnEverything Sat 18-Feb-17 22:51:05

Who can even see the hair and make-up when that dress is screaming in your face? I actually recoiled in shock.

The whole thing is horrible - hair, make up, dress.

She looks really old.

elephantoverthehill Sun 19-Feb-17 00:15:13

Individually they are all potentially quite 'wow' fabrics. So why try and wear them altogether? It kind of reminds me of children in PizzaHut with the ice cream and sweets machine and they don't know when to stop.

After that assault on my eyes I took a look at the other BAFTA dresses on that link - my oh my Edith wasn't the only one wearing a monstrosity. What is going on?

cansu Sun 19-Feb-17 08:41:46

God just looked at some of the others. How can there be so many hideous expensive dresses? Honestly I cannot believe they have actually been told by someone that these are attractive.

user1471545174 Sun 19-Feb-17 09:08:53

It's monstrous.

Dreadfulidea Sun 19-Feb-17 10:37:23

The link revealed her photo quite slowly ..I was about to agree with you until mid way down. I think the shape and length are crap although I like the idea.

Hatemylifenow Sun 19-Feb-17 10:38:26

That's truly hideous
