Dresses in dark colours but with plenty of embellishments, monochrome looks and the odd trouser suit dominated the red carpet at Sunday's (February 10) BAFTAs, with some stars looking to old Hollywood glamour for Britain's top movie awards.
Leading actress winner Olivia Colman chose a black and white frock, with a boat neck and train.
Supporting actress winner Rachel Weisz wore a frilly feminine cream tulle dress with a sparkling belt.
Trouser suits, seen on several red carpets this awards season, also came to London, with EE Rising Star winner Letitia Wright in an all-white ensemble and singer/actress Mary J Blige in a creation embellished with golden chains.
"Mary Queen of Scots" nominee Margot Robbie wore a sparkling gown with exaggerated tulle sleeves.
Amy Adams looked to old Hollywood glamour in a sleek belted burgundy dress with detailed bow shoulders, while fellow Supporting Actress nominee Claire Foy chose a dark green strapless gown.
There were also monochrome looks, with "Widows" actress Viola Davis in a black dress with a huge white bow at the front.
Nominees Glenn Close and Melissa McCarthy as well as award presenters Salma Hayek and Cate Blanchett all chose black frocks for the event, which boasted sparkling embroidery or sequins.
"There was a real nod ... back to old Hollywood glamour," Holly Rains, digital editor at magazine Marie Claire UK, told Reuters.
"We saw Salma Hayek ... with this vintage sort of feel with her headband that really sort of evoked 1920s glamour." For the men, black suits dominated, with nominee Timothee Chalamet opting for vivid prints and boots while Best actor winner Rami Malek wore a white Louis Vuitton suit.
Blanchett's black dress had a plunging neckline filled with coloured stones.
Hayek added an eye-catching golden mesh headband to complete her outfit.
EE Rising star nominee Cynthia Erivo arrived in a princess-like full skirted strapless tulle gown.
Prince William's wife, Kate, walked the red carpet in a floaty white one-shoulder dress.
