It’s officially award season, and although we don’t want to come across as being biased, the BAFTAs are absolutely one of our favourite award shows to preside over. Perhaps it is London’s influence, but the BAFTAs are reliably the event where celebrities truly embrace and experiment with their style, resulting in an array of looks that we can’t help but be impressed by.
With bold and boundary-breaking ensembles from years gone by serving as inspiration for many attendees and their stylists—who could forget Lupita Nyong’o’s turquoise satin Christian Dior gown from 2014 or Zoë Kravitz’s molten gold column dress courtesy of Saint Laurent in 2020?—the BAFTAs red carpet is always showstopping and totally unpredictable. This year’s ceremony? Well, let’s just say it did not disappoint.
The BAFTAs red carpet has lived up to our expectations.
This year, many of the stars opted for tulle and lots of it—cue host Rebel Wilson’s frothy layers. Lady Gaga also looked incredible as she took to the red carpet in a custom hourglass gown from Ralph Lauren. Trains were also prevalent in the ensembles of Florence Pugh and Lashana Lynch, while rising star Simone Ashley opted to wear a Valentino trouser-and-cape creation in the brand’s signature Pink PP shade.
Now, without further ado, allow us to present the best and brightest outfits that we fell in love with from the BAFTAs red carpet. Scroll down to see them—we’re sure you’ll be just as smitten.
