One of the few in a colourful dress was best actress victor Frances McDormand - but she told the ceremony: "I stand in full solidarity with my sisters."The Duchess of Cambridge wore a dark green dress with a black ribbon belt".

Kate was in a hard position as if she completely refused to wear black, she could be open to criticism for not using her platform to make a stand against sexual harassment and women's rights.

Last month, there was news that those who will grace the BAFTA Awards would wear black as a nod to what had happened in the Golden Globes where most celebrities wore black.

Thai government officials say clinics are under close watch, and that the practice of commercial surrogacy has been ended. That law sent much of the Thai surrogacy-for-hire business for foreigners to Cambodia, which later passed its own ban.

It's nearly impossible for the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, to make a public appearance without having the world gush over her resplendent sartorial choices. However, Kate Middleton, who would have thought to use a surrogate mother to her third pregnancy, was not in black!

Showing up in a green gown, the Duchess found herself at the receiving end of criticism for snubbing the dress-code (black outfit) for the event, which was in support of the Time's Up movement. Strict rules governing Royals behaviour means that they are not allowed to make an overt political statement.

On Sunday, at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, the Duchess of Cambridge included only a subtle hint of solidarity with the victims of abuse for whom the Time's Up movement was created.

Interim Leader Vic Fedeli, who has said he believes the women accusers, announced Friday Brown was no longer wanted in the party. Earlier on Friday before he had a chance to officially enter the race, Brown was forcibly removed from the party's caucus.

Never in her wildest dreams would Kate have expected a reaction of this magnitude to her lovely green dress.

There had been much speculation in the build-up to the event about what colour Kate would wear. She accessorized with black heels, a black clutch and emerald jewels. While nearly all the stars in London donned black, Kate Middleton was a glaring exception.

Another supporter noted the dark-coloured gown was a good choice, particularly as members of the royal family are supposed to remain politically neutral. At the same time, finding a middle ground with the color and accessories to show support to the Time's Up movement.
