Oppenheimer may have emerged triumphant at The Royal Festival Hall last night, but we say that winners are everywhere to be seen on the red carpet. From A-listers to rising talents, everyone brought their A-game to the star-studded BAFTAS last night, turning heads and setting trends faster than you can say 'best-dressed list.' We swooned, we gasped, we nodded approvingly – and these were the looks that we loved most of all.

Margot Robbie stayed bang on brand in Barbie pink as she rocked a custom Armani Privé strapless number.

Emily Blunt nodded to 1920s glam as she swept up the red carpet in a beaded Elie Saab dress with cutaway waist, Tiffany necklace and just the prettiest hair.

Behold the drama of Emma Stone’s one-shoulder Vuitton dress, with its oversized puff sleeve in all its peachy glory.

You can rely on Florence Pugh for a slick and sensational look. Here she shows us how it’s done in Harris Reed. The designer eulogised on Instagram, ‘There are few people in this world that I am more gagged to dress and respect more then the iconic Florence. Every time I get to sew my little heart out and make a fashion moment with you, it always feels like the first. I love you and thank you for always trusting me to create for you.’

No one does classic like Carey Mulligan. We couldn’t have adored her more in vintage Dior.

Taylor Russell rocked a feathery backless cut-out Loewe dress in inimitable style.

Lily Collins wore Tamara Ralph Couture and dazzled, harking back to a golden age of Hollywood.

Never off duty, Ryan Gosling, of course, brought all the Ken-ergy. What else?

Cate Blanchett never puts a foot wrong, and so it proved yet again as she sashayed up the red carpet in Louis Vuitton.
