A host of celebrities donned their glad rags from the comfort of their own homes to attend the virtual ceremony held to mark the 74th British Academy Film and Television Awards (BAFTAs).
Often looked upon as the UK’s answer to the Oscars, the 2021 BAFTA ceremony was held on Sunday, and will be broadcast across Britain and Ireland from 7pm on Monday.
Despite ongoing lockdown restrictions, famous faces celebrated the BAFTAs in style, and Extra.ie has gathered a selection of the best looks of the night.
Phoebe Dynevor, star of Netflix’s hit Regency-era series Bridgerton, ditched the demure looks of her character Daphne for the occasion, opting for classic glamour in a black, full-length, one-shouldered Louis Vuitton gown.
Indian actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who served as a presenter at Sunday’s ceremony, wore two different looks on the night, initially posing with her husband Nick Jonas in a stunning pair of silky white trousers and a bright pink jacket opened at a daring angle.
Nick, meanwhile, looked sharp in a Giorgio Armani tuxedo. Priyanka’s second look involved a stunning black Bulgari ensemble embellished with a striking jewelled butterfly design.
Vanessa Kirby, former star of The Crown and leading lady in Pieces of a Woman, was the picture of sleek elegance in a bespoke Atelier Versace dress made from heritage metal mesh, finishing the look with a minimalistic up-do.
English actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw of The Morning Show channelled old-school Hollywood glamour on Sunday in a stunning beaded dress designed by Louis Vuitton, complete with a scalloped bust and sheer neck panel.
Gugu looked every inch the 1920s starlet, styling her short hair with a stylish wave while opting for dramatic berry-toned lipstick and delicate metallic stilettos.
As President of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Prince William had been due to address the impact of the pandemic on the film industry during a video link appearance.
However, William’s appearance has been cancelled in the wake of the death of his grandfather, Prince Philip, who was the first president of the organisation.
