The British Academy Film Awards is considered to be one of the biggest award nights in the diary, and the stars have certainly dressed the part. Following on from the incredible dresses we saw at the 2020 Nominees' Party, it was clear we were in for a treat on the red carpet on Sunday. Our favourite celebrities did not disappoint, with the likes of Zoe Kravitz and Emilia Clarke pulling out all the stops for the star-studded event held at the Royal Albert Hall. While it's an almost impossible task to narrow down the list of best-dressed stars, take a look at our favourite looks…

Vick Hope

Presenter Vick was a vision in red wearing a statement one-shouldered gown with a daring thigh-high leg split and the textured skirt. She paired it with metallic heels from Dune London. Stunning!

Zoe Kravitz

Wow! What better way to stand out on the red carpet than in a shimmering gold gown? With a high neckline and long sleeves, Zoe's flattering YSL frock had a simple cut so it did not detract from the statement colour. She paired it with subtle Maria Tash ear studs and plain rings as well as bright drop earrings and matching red lips.

Colour-clashing with the red carpet, Renée wowed in a pink tailored gown from Prada. With her blonde hair styled into an elegant updo, she showed off the structured off-the-shoulder straps.

Dazzling in yellow, Jodie showed off her blossoming baby bump in a gorgeous glittering gown and Tiffany & Co. jewellery. We are obsessed with the black trim around the top leading into the statement black bow on her back.

While everyone else is gravitating towards black and grey outfits in the winter months, Pixie opted for a stunning summery white dress for the BAFTAs. The dress had tiered ruffles and fell just above her ankles, making sure to show off her sparkly black and silver heels. Perhaps this white gown will be a similar style to her wedding dress?

The Game of Thrones star opted for a simple black strappy dress with subtle sparkles from the Schiaparelli Haute Couture spring-summer 2020 collection by Daniel Roseberry.
