Before we get all carried away with my thus far stellar London Fashion Week coverage, let’s take a look at last week’s BAFTAs, which went by in the blink of an eye, so much so that I almost missed Gillian Anderson wearing vintage Sybil Connolly, as pointed out by one of my painstaking Fash Mob readers. (But look, if you aren’t a fan on Facebook, you’re nobody to me.)

When I posted the pics on Facebook, Gillian’s dress divided people – but as it happens I love the salted caramel colour on her, and the shape – which, without the texture, may have been dull and, dare I say it, a little too Disney Princess for her.

What do you think?
