Joanna Lumley’s reveals her dress for the BAFTA Awards. British actress, Joanna Lumley has chosen a simple black dress for the BAFTA Awards because she doesn’t want to make a “statement”. The ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ actress will wear a bespoke black gown by Betty Jackson to the glamorous ceremony this Sunday (18.02.18) – a dress she chose before the Time’s Up all-black campaign – because she wants to blend in, rather than make a statement. She said: “I had to choose how I would look before any of this blew up. “My dress is very plain and very covered up, mainly because I have to wear so many power packs and wires. “I shall probably look like a senior prefect or the headmistress, but the dress is simply divine. “I would have loved to wear crimson or shocking pink, but it might have looked as if I was making a statement. As a host, it’s not my job to make statements.” The 71-year-old star admitted she does her best to keep herself “nice” because it can be harder to find work as an older actress. She told Britain’s HELLO! magazine: “It’s a problem for women and men. “When you’re past a certain age, probably 40, they [directors] think you’re over the hill, “They’re always looking for a younger star. So if you’re trying to cling to looking 35 and you’re actually 45, maybe that’s a danger area. “I’m lucky, I’m flying high and in my latest film role [‘Finding Your Feet’] had to wear a grey wig. “But when you’re way past it like me, there’s no one to try to look like. “You just keep yourself nice, keep in shape, don’t drink yourself into a slob or lose your teeth.” is a 100% owned Irish fashion website that offers the latest Celebrity News and Fashion News to our users. also gives our users the opportunity to purchase selected, high quality goods directly from our wide range of fashion affiliates.
