Baftas 2019: The 59 best dressed red carpet arrivals

Who wore what on the British Academy Film Awards' red carpet

It was biggest night of the year for British film, the 72nd annual EE British Academy Film Awards at London's Royal Albert Hall on Sunday.

The most notable attendees had to be the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who have become regulars on the Bafta red carpet in recent years.

The Duchess of Cambridge stood out in an Alexander McQueen gown, accessorised with a bracelet borrowed from the Queen Elizabeth II and a pair of Princess Diana’s earrings, as well as Jimmy Choo shoes.

This wasn't the only big red carpet of the night, head here for the 24 must-see looks from the Grammy Awards.

Other best dressed stars include Cate Blanchett, who sported a new brunette haircut and wore a custom Christopher Kane gown with statement jewel embellishment.

Clare Foy, Rachel Weiss and Amy Adams also got a seal of approval from fashion critics, wearing Oscar de la Renta, Gucci and Prada respectively.

However, the perennially best dressed Margot Robbie divided critics in her Chanel gown. One Dubai-based fashion observer labelled her haute couture look as "daring", while another particularly vicious commentator described her as looking like a "frill-necked lizard".

The best dressed gents

It wasn’t all about the women on the red carpet.

Bradley Cooper looked dashing in Celine – incidentally the same designer his A Star is Born co-star Lady Gaga wore to the Grammys on the other side of the pond. And Best Actor winner, Rami Malek, opted for a white Louis Vuitton suit with a black shirt.
