The 2023 EE BAFTA’s brought us many memorable moments, from Helen Mirren’s emotional tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II, to the comical presenting skills of TV’s own Alison Hammond (all in a glittering gown nonetheless). One thing we can always rely on the BAFTAs for is a red carpet filled with fashion moments to fawn over until the next red carpet takes over our screens and feeds.

Florence Pugh in Nina Ricci


Pugh is not one to shy away from a viral red carpet gown, it’s either statement in structure or colour, and this time it was both. The orange Nina Ricci gown is one of the first big red carpet-moments from the brand since the appointment of Harris Reed as creative director at the end of 2022. The gown was paired with Tiffany & Co. Jewellery and a septum nose ring to add an oh-so-cool flair.

Viola Davis in Stella McCartney

Glowing from her recently obtained EGOT status (that’s when an actor wins the four holy grail awards, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony) Viola Davis dazzled in a custom purple Stella McCartney gown complete with cape sleeves, fit for a modern-day legend. Her embellished look was completed with toned-down accessories’ black platform heels, and a Stella McCartney ‘Falabella’ clutch bag.

Catherine, The Princess of Wales in Alexander McQueen


A British red carpet is almost never complete without a Royal appearance, and this was her first as a Princess. Not one to shy away from a ‘re-wear’, the Princess of Wales donned a previously worn white Alexander McQueen one-shoulder gown. Gloves may now be the next ‘it’ accessory for this year, as the Princess contrasted the gown with a pair of black opera gloves and £18 Zara floral earrings.

Emma Thompson in Laura Pitharas

Emma Thompson has never been one for the ‘traditional’ look of leading actresses, dripping in high jewellery, show-stopper gowns and stiletto heels. Instead, she opts for something that feels more authentic, and it shows. She donned a clean-cut cream blazer, trousers and coat by sustainable British designer Laura Pitharas - and styled the outfit with sneakers and baroque pearl jewellery.

Anya Taylor-Joy in Schiaparelli 

Anya Taylor-Joy is as magical to watch off-screen as on. With a graceful stance and a playful expression, she carries each outfit with as much panache as the next. Her Schiaparelli look is not the first she has worn by the brand, but perhaps the most outstanding. The champagne velvet mini dress was presented on the red carpet with a grandiose shawl draped over her head, which was removed to reveal the sharp silhouette that the brand is famed for. The look was bold enough not to need statement accessories and instead was worn with strappy Aquazzura heels and Tiffany & Co. jewellery.

Lily James in Tamara Ralph Couture

Lily James has had a stellar run in the red carpet circuit. She knows what to wear, and when. Her BAFTA 2023 Tamara Ralph Couture featured a cut-out pearl, crystal and metal spider web design with a taffeta bow and train to complete. It should be too much, but somehow she carried it off perfectly, complete with Bulgari jewellery.

Michelle Yeoh in Christian Dior

Michelle Yeoh though [spoiler alert] not coming away with a win, certainty won over our hearts with her chic style and mannerisms. When watching the televised award show, between every speech, the camera panned to Yeoh; giggling while showing glimpses of a diamond-encrusted Richard Mille watch. The jewellery was the star of the show, and paired with a simple pale pink Christian Dior couture suit, an array of Moussaieff sapphire, ruby and diamond-flooded pieces were the perfect companion to her look.

Vera Wang in Vera Wang

 The American designer never ceases to amaze watches of her eternal youth, both in style and in vanity. Wang paired a black crop top with a white silk dress draped across her body to show off her abs [and why not!]. Her sleek look was paired with a pearl necklace and black sunglasses because if Vera Wang can’t do it - who can?
