Bafta film awards took place in London about a week ago, on Sunday – Valentine’s day – in Central London. The first Bafta Awards ceremony was in 1947, so we thought it would be interesting to have a look at the 80s editions and check the glamorous style of 80s nominees.

We are already aware of the fact that the 80s produced some great movies – to name some of the BAFTA nominees Kramer vs Kramer (1980) E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), Back to the Future (1985), The last Emperor (1988) and When Harry Met Sally (1989).

But how about 80s style in red carpets and ceremony awards?

We dig into the past to find the milestone of 80s style!

  • In 1984 Julie Walters won the prize for best actress in the movie Education Rita. Have a look at her remarkable style, huge hair and, well, huge success while she walks proudly to get her prize.
  • In 1985 the winner was Maggie Smith in the film A Private Fuction, her dress with palettes is still shining.
  • In 1988 Geena Davis (on the left) won for her role in The Accidental Turistic as best supporting actress; her smart colour dress became history.

  • Cher has got on her own a whole list of outstanding outfits. She is a true queen of the 80s.
  • Nicholas Cage shows off a pretty intense look at the premiere of Moonstruck.

We truly love the fearless style that stars showed off. One of the reason we are big fun of the 80s is that people weren’t trying to fit in, if anything they were trying to stand out!
