Kate Middleton snubs 'Time's Up' dress code at BAFTAs

Kate Middleton snubs 'Time's Up' dress code at BAFTAs

The event was a star-studded affair, drawing dozens of A-list celebrities sporting black, including Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan.

Instead, Kate was seen stepping out on the red carpet in a dark green cap-sleeved gown by Jenny Packham, with a black sash around her waist.

Ahead of the BAFTAs, stars including Kate Winslet, Emma Watson and Naomie Harris published a letter in The Observer that called for an end to sexual misconduct, because 2018 should be "the year that time was up on sexual harassment and abuse". Royal family members are also encouraged not to wear black unless they are attending a funeral or Remembrance Day.

Mother of 4 year old, Prince George of Cambridge and 2 years old Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, Kate Middleton is expecting her third child.

The Duchess wore green Jenny Packham to the BAFTAs. While Kensington Palace has yet to respond to the backlash over Kate's dress choice, Allison Janney has come to the Duchess' defense.

The dress code at this year's awards ceremonies has been slightly different.

"So disappointed that the duchess didn't wear black at the #BAFTAs", one user wrote on Twitter.

Kate Middleton donned a dark green dress with a black ribbon cinched around her waist to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards Sunday night - despite the fact that almost all other women in attendance wore black. William, who is president of BAFTA, was given the honour of presenting the Fellowship Award to Sir Ridley Scott. Modeled after the Golden Globes blackout, nearly all of the evening's guests wore head-to-toe black ensembles and the official Time's Up pin.

Upon their arrival, William and Kate met the chief executive of Bafta, Amanda Berry, and a host of other representatives from the organisation.
