Did Kate Middleton Defy The BAFTAs Dress Code For This Powerful Reason?
The Duchess of Cambridge broke the unofficial black dress code by wearing green as she attended the 71st annual awards with Prince William.
Dozens of beautifully dressed celebrities graced the BAFTAs 2018 red carpet on Sunday night, many of which opted for black ensembles in support of the Time's Up Movement.
However, while stars including Angelina Jolie, Margot Robbie, and Jennifer Lawrence used their outfits to show support for victims of sexual harassment, Kate Middleton broke the unofficial dress code by wearing a striking green Jenny Packham gown.

But it seems the Duchess' outfit choice wasn't without good reason. For starters, as a member of the royal family, Kate is encouraged not to show a political stance on any issue, and the colour of Kate's dress also has a pretty powerful message in itself.
The suffragettes used to wear dark green to represent hope, so it's possible Kate's ensemble was a nod to them with 2018 being the year that marks a century since women won the right to vote in the UK.
Kate didn't totally go against the black dress code either, as her outfit also featured a black waistband and clutch - oh and of course Prince William looked all kinds of dapper beside her in a classic black suit.
The Time's Up movement started early this year against sexual harassment in the workplace, and actress Joana Lumley opened the awards, praising the "determination to eradicate the abuse of women the world over."
While the vast majority of celebs opted for black in support of the movement, we have complete respect for Kate's outfit choice.
What an inspirational evening!
