Best and Worst Dressed at the BAFTA's 2016

It's that time of year again! As the stars descend on the capital to celebrate achievements in the world of film, here are some of the best (and worst) looks of the night. 

Best Dressed

Alicia Vikander
A rising style icon, actress Alicia Vikander opted for a richly embellished leather dress as she took to the red carpet tonight. If you look closely you can see the tiny 3D pin decorations that make up the elaborate decorations- one-of-a-kind. 

Cate Blanchett
A romantic twist on a classic floral dress, Blanchett's gown offered a rich ensemble of soft feathers and embroidered flowers. Haute splendour indeed. 

Dakota Johnson
50 Shades actress Dakota Johnson channeled the official Valentine shade with a striking red floor-skimmer. Spaghetti straps complimented her figure while subtle frills added interest. Effortless. 

Bel Powley
Kudos to newcomer Bel Powley! There's nothing I love more than a splash of colour and this certified rainbow of metallics got be excited. Teaming her gown with a pair of silver platforms, the actress looked every inch the 70's superstar.

Heida Reed
An LBD is a classic choice, but Reed added a luxe uplift to the traditional piece with a plunging neckline, new season pleats and a subtle metallic finish, complete with her hair placed sleekly behind her. 

Gemma Chan
I love Gemma Chan's style and this BAFTA appearance is no different. Making chic look effortless, she chose a long sleeved gown, feathered with silver embellishments. 

Gwendoline Christie
Set in a powerful pose, Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie opted for a sleeveless dress with a smart cream trim. Spot the sporting details in the waist area of the gown- nice one Christie!

Worst Dressed

Laura Bailey
BLEURGH. Midnight blue is so 1,000 seasons ago, and this lace piece is an insult to old Victoriana. Who wears buns and black eyes on the red carpet anyway?!

Poppy Jamie
Baroque patterns are all well and good, but teaming them with a moss green and nude palette and finishing the dress with a fish tail is a recipe for disaster. Avert your eyes.
