It's the movement that's seen celebrities and activists don black to show their very public support for the ‘Time’s Up’ movement.
However with all eyes on the Duchess of Cambridge as she faced one of her greatest fashion challenges to date after a letter from actresses and industry leaders urged BAFTA attendees to don all-black, the royal was left with a difficult choice.
Instead, Kate was seen stepping out on the red carpet in a dark green cap-sleeved gown by Jenny Packham, with a black sash around her waist.
Insiders say lending sartorial support against the sexual harassment allegations which have rocked the entertainment industry could be perceived as a breach of protocol, and the Royal Family must remain politically-neutral at all times.
The Duchess of Cambridge is wearing green Jenny Packham to tonight’s #BAFTA awards. KP have declined to comment on her decision - but she would never have worn black specifically to make a statement.— Rebecca English (@RE_DailyMail) February 18, 2018
She is, however, wearing a black ribbon under her bust. Maybe a small concession?— Rebecca English (@RE_DailyMail) February 18, 2018
So in order to side-step the issue, the 36-year-old opted for a deep, khaki-hued dress which ensured she didn't stand out from the sea of all-black too much.

She accessorised the look with a dazzling array of jewels in a co-ordinating emerald shade and her go-to pair of Prada wavy-cut suede heels.
The Duke – who has been President of BAFTA since 2010 – and the Duchess of Cambridge took to the red carpet after the A-list headed inside the Royal Albert Hall for the ceremony.
For last year’s star-studded awards night, the pregnant royal donned a cold-shoulder gown from go-to label, Alexander McQueen’s resort 2016 line.
And the 36-year-old accessorised the evening look with the brand’s $1550 Heart Clasp Clutch Box and a pair of Prada’s wavy-cut heels (both of which sold out instantly).
The royal also looked to Her Majesty for a helping hand and borrowed her diamond wedding bracelet, which Prince Philip designed for their nuptials back in 1947.
It is the first time the Duchess of Cambridge has worn a label other than Alexander McQueen for the annual BAFTA ceremony and tonight proved the perfect opportunity to showcase her blossoming baby bump.
