Sunday’s BAFTA guests have not disappointed with their stylish ensembles – with the likes of Zoe Kravitz, Emilia Clarke and Charlize Theron turning heads in stunning designer gowns.However, what made the outfits of the stars arriving at the annual ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall even more exciting was an admirable tweak to the regular dress code.This year’s attendees were asked to recycle an outfit they already own or acquire a pre-loved one, rather than purchase a brand-new one for the night.Kate Middleton stepped out in an Alexander McQueen gown she first wore on a royal tour of Malaysia in 2012.She was joined by Joaquin Phoenix, who slipped on a Stella McCartney suit for a third awards ceremony in recent weeks, after the Golden Globes and SAG Awards.Many famous faces are likely to have donned old favourites from their wardrobe, opted for vintage and second-hand, or even hired an outfit – and this environmentally friendly red carpet looked just as great as normal.A guide provided to guests, created by the London College of Fashion, had encouraged those attending to rent outfits from sites including Hurr Collective, By Rotation and My Wardrobe HQ.It also suggested looks could be sourced from Vestiare Collective and Depop, and highlighted eco-conscious brands including Stella McCartney and Reformation.The move to promote sustainable fashion came as part of the organisation’s commitment to going “carbon-neutral” for its 2020 awards ceremony.According to a press release, they announced: “From travel and food, to branding and materials, BAFTA is ensuring the awards are as sustainable as possible.”And the dazzling eco-friendly style on show did not fail to impress.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards is arguably the most prestigious red carpet event in the UK. It celebrates the very best programmes UK production companies have created and is attended by some of the world’s most famous faces. Over the years, Cate Blanchett, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone have attended, clad in their finest attire. Even royals put in an appearance. The Duke of Cambridge is president of the BAFTAs and has attended the event numerous times - often with the Duchess of Cambridge by his side. Ahead of this year’s BAFTA Awards on 2 February 2020, we look back on the very best red carpet looks to date.
With two Oscars to her name (and a handful more nominations under her belt), Cate Blanchett needs an award-worthy wardrobe to match.Fortunately, with the help of stylist-to-the-stars Elizabeth Stewart, she’s curated one.Whether Blanchett’s at Cannes Film Festival, the Golden Globes or over in London for the BAFTAs, she rarely puts a fashion foot wrong.But that doesn’t mean she sticks to what’s safe. Blanchett’s red carpet looks are often bold and playful, featuring strong silhouettes and experimental embellishments, and always dramatic.There are no LBD dresses in Blanchett’s wardrobe, but instead a colourful array of couture from the likes of Armani, Givenchy and Christopher Kane.For the 71st Cannes Film Festival in 2018, the actress demonstrated her fashion know-how in a printed, bubble gown by London Fashion Week label Mary Katrantzou. While a bespoke Alexander McQueen gown, complete with embroidered bodice and feathery skirt, proved the perfect fit for the 2016 BAFTA Awards.From Oscar-acceptance attire to a covetable maternity closet, we revisit some of Cate Blanchett's greatest fashion moments to date.

Just when you thought awards season had already introduced us to this year’s most fashionable celebrities, the BAFTAs 2019 came along and changed everything.Margot Robbie sought inspiration from her onscreen regal roots in an Alexander McQueen dress while fellow actress Olivia Colman opted for a caped look by Emilia Wickstead.Claire Foy looked equally chic in a fringed, emerald green number while Cate Blanchett wowed in a bejewelled black gown.But the BAFTAs 2019 sartorial trophy went to Rachel Weisz who looked heavenly in a sorbet-hued dress – our ‘favourite’ look of the evening by far (sorry).Proving men can tackle the red carpet too, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ star Rami Malek demonstrated his trend know-how in a white tux while Richard Madden stole the nation’s heart (yet again) in a dapper two-piece suit.Up-and-comer Timothee Chamalet took a sartorial gamble in a printed shirt and jacket combo – and somehow won over the masses.Look no further for the best celebrity fashion at the BAFTAs 2019.
For more than seven decades, stars have come together to honor the best national and foreign films at the British Academy Film Awards, aka the BAFTAs. This year, many celebrities continued to stand in solidarity on the red carpet wearing all black in support of the #TimesUp movement just as they did at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards. While the trend of wearing all black took center stage, so did many of the hair looks, especially middle-parted ’dos.Whether worn pinned back, soft, and wavy like British actress Amy Jackson’s or straight and sleek similar to Jennifer Lawrence’s, middle-parted hair was the hottest trend on the BAFTAs red carpet.Still stuck on side parts? Well, it just might be an “out with the old” style soon. Ahead, we highlight some of the best middle-parted hair moments from the BAFTAs.Read more from Yahoo Lifestyle:• BAFTA Blackout: Women Set to Wear Black at London Awards Ceremony• Kate Middleton ditches BAFTAs all-black dress code for green Jenny Packham dress• 13 gorgeous SAG Awards beauty looks you can wear in real lifeFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

The majority of the attendees – male and female – followed the Golden Globes’ lead and stuck to an all-black dress code decided upon a few weeks ago, in support of the Time’s Up movement.However a couple of the ceremony’s guests chose to avoid the political stance – including the Duchess of Cambridge. Royals are traditionally not supposed to engage in politics and so swerved the suggested dress code in a bottle green Jenny Packham gown.From Dior, Givenchy, Chanel and Elie Saab, scroll to see the best looks of the night.Stay tuned for the night’s winners.

In protest against the sexual harassment allegations which continue to rock the entertainment industry, a letter urged attendees at the 2018 BAFTAs ceremony to don all-black in support of the ‘Time’s Up’ initiative.The open address, obtained by Deadline, read: “Inspired by the ‘Time’s Up’ movement in the US, we are working to continue the incredible movement this side of the Atlantic.”The letter continued, “Here in the UK, more than half of all women and nearly two-thirds of women aged 18 to 24 have experienced sexual harassment at work. Wearing black is a strong, unifying and simple statement – a physical and visual representation of our solidarity with people across all industries who have experienced sexual harassment and abuse or have been held back due to an imbalance in power.”The movement follows in the footsteps of the Golden Globes, where a large majority of guests stood in solidarity of the #MeToo initiative in all-black.While, next week’s 2018 Brit Awards sought inspiration from the Grammy’s, as attendees have been asked to wear a white rose in support of those affected by sexual harassment.And at this year’s ceremony, a large majority of A-list names stuck to the unofficial dress code and many donned ‘Time’s Up’ pins in support of the movement.But it turns out, not everyone received the all-black memo at this year’s BAFTA ceremony.Here’s a look at who donned colour on the red carpet.Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.Read more from Yahoo Style UK: Kate Upton accuses Guess founder of sexual harassment in #MeToo postWhy are women being blamed for the Harvey Weinstein scandal?2018 Golden Globe Awards: The guests who didn’t wear black
