Lots of actors, both men and women alike chose to wear black in solidarity with the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.

Black Panther’s Letitia Wright, Octavia Spencer and Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer were just a few of the glittering stars that donned dark attire to raise awareness about sexual assault in the industry.

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton attended the Baftas this year. She wore an emerald green – not black – dress, and people online took notice

The debate about the Duchess’ dress decision spilled out into the winner’s room at the Baftas, BuzzFeedreports.

Actress Allison Janney, who won Best Supporting Actress for I,Tonya, was one of the stars asked about the green dress.

Her response was gold:

I would never judge anyone's choice of clothing. She looked absolutely beautiful and I'm so happy for them that she's pregnant again. She's an extraordinary woman. And she can wear whatever she wants.

People agreed with her.

Others pointed out that royal protocol probably forbade her wearing black.

The Mail’s royal correspondent Rebecca English also made an interesting point.

The Duchess did wear a black sash, and some people thought that was a nod to the movement.

Most people agreed, however, that women can wear whatever they want.
