If you needed proof that the Brits really know how to turn up on the red carpet, look no further than the 2023 EE BAFTA Awards. An acronym for British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the BAFTAs are essentially the British Oscars, honoring British and international actors who have given memorable performances on both the big and small screen. British actors like Florence Pugh and Paul Mescal looked stunning in their natural diamonds, as well as international stars like Blonde’s Ana de Armas in Louis Vuitton diamonds and Michelle Yeoh in some stunning Mousaieff pieces.
As we gear up for the 2023 Oscars, the BAFTAs are the perfect place to look for red carpet trends and winner predictions. Will BAFTA Best Actress winner Cate Blanchett pick up the Oscar Best Actress trophy for her role in Tár? BAFTA Best Actor winner Austin Butler is also a favorite for the same award at the Oscars as well. We’ll have to wait and see!
In the meantime, take a look at the best natural diamond moments from the BAFTA Awards red carpet, from vintage Tiffany & Co. pieces to Cartier brooches.
