BAFTAs 2019: Salma Hayek's Lizard Brooch Caught Our Eye, Here's How To Shop The Look

The 2019 BAFTAs did not disappoint when it came to the red carpet. Monochromatic looks dominated the awards show, and for us, Salma Hayek’s giant lizard brooch took home the top gong for best accessories involving a reptile. It’s a category, promise. 

The actor wore Gucci in a one-shoulder black gown (unsurprisingly as it’s one of the luxury fashion labels run by her husband François-Henri Pinault), and paired with an up do, black clutch and beaded headband.

Amy Adams also got the memo, arriving in a bespoke burgundy Antonio Beradi dress with a huge diamond cluster brooch. Rather than letting their designer dresses to all the talking, it’s their accessories that caught our eye.


If you can’t pinch any brooches from your grandmother, shop our edit of diamond-inspired finds instead to help get the look.
