‘It’s kind of like the British Oscars’ – Jennifer Lawrence

The 2017 awards season is now in full force. The Oscar nominations are in. Celebrities may, or may not - but most likely are - planning their speeches...While us mere mortals will be racing to see all the acclaimed films in the cinema which have had nods from The Academy (third time re-watching La La Land, anyone?).

But while the Oscars may seem like the crème de la crème on the film industry’s calendar, we have to admit there’s nothing we like better than watching the BAFTAs red-carpet circus and ceremony as it happens live.

And just as much as we’ll be keeping tabs on the newbies to watch on-screen this year (the EE Rising Star award celebrates the industry’s most promising ones-to-watch), our eyes will be firmly fixed on the style hits of the night.

Sienna Miller’s backless silver green ‘mermaid dress’ in 2007? Julia Roberts’ retro ‘90s look? Oh, and let’s not forget Michelle Williams wearing a well-known highstreet label in 2013 (Clue: it begins with ‘H’)
