The 75th annual EE British Academy Film Awards kicked off in style at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Sunday, with stars including Salma Hayek and Daisy Ridley descending upon the red carpet. While BAFTA President Prince William and his wife Duchess Kate gave the ceremony a miss this year due to "diary constraints," there was plenty of glitz and glamour from a host of famous faces from the film industry.

This year's event, hosted by Rebel Wilson, is all the more special since it marks the first time since 2020 that the BAFTAs are fully in-person rather than virtual, and our favourite celebrities did not miss the memo. From Lady Gaga's old Hollywood glamour to West Side Story star Ariana DeBose's sunshine yellow look, the stars treated us to a veritable rainbow of red carpet looks.

We've rounded up all the most spectacular style moments from the red carpet – so keep scrolling...
