Stars stepped out in their finest gowns, with the likes of Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet impressing, but many divided opinion with ill-fitting and ill-advised gowns

The EE BAFTA Film Awards 2016 kicked off in glorious style on Sunday.
Held at London's iconic Royal Opera House in Covent Garden for the 10th year running, expectations were high for this, the most prestigious of events in the British movie industry's calendar.
Leading the way and turning on the glamour on the red carpet were BAFTA nominees Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore and Kate Winslet, as well as their younger counterparts Alicia Vikander and Saorise Ronan - however, while for many it was a spectacular night of fashion, plenty of famous faces got it rather wrong.

The likes of Cate and Kate and EE Rising Star nominee Dakota Johnson had their style nailed, wowing in their respective gowns.
But for TV presenter Poppy Jamie, Australian actress and Hollywood funnylady Rebel Wilson, 1980s TV star Stefanie Powers and actress Laura Haddock, it was a serious case of dividing opinion.
Cate, who was nominated for a Leading Actress gong for her role in lesbian romance drama Carol, wowed in a dazzling colourful gown.
The 46-year-old cut a youthful figure in her beautiful red carpet attire, a figure-hugging gown with a decorative floral top half in varying jewel tones and a full black feathered skirt, adding an ostentatious vibe to proceedings.

The multi award-winning Hollywood favourite finished her look with her blonde locks swept into a side-parted chignon, a dazzling pair of silver earrings completing her enviable aesthetic.
Julianne, meanwhile, looked typically fantastic in a curve-hugging cream gown with a fashion-forward black halter-style neckline.
The 55-year-old - who won the Leading Actress BAFTA at last year's ceremony for her role in Still Alice - could have passed for someone 20 years younger in her timeless attire.

Complete with black straps on her shoulders and a long draped swathe of fabric down the back, it fell to the floor, trailing behind her down the back of the sweeping skirt.
Her red locks were perfection, slicked back into a gorgeous updo, and she highlighted her russet tones with emerald earrings.
Brit beauty Kate stuck to her time-honoured style, accentuating her covetable curves in a tailored black dress with an asymmetric sleeve detail and funky neckline across her chest.

The 40-year-old Oscar-winner kept it sleek in the snug gown, which somehow left little to the imagination as it revealed every inch of her hourglass physique.
Her pale blonde locks were left down in chic curls, cascading over her bare shoulders and she added a pop of colour with her bright pink lips - she also went for a style side-step with a scarlet red clutch bag.
Kate won the Supporting Actress gong for her role in Steve Jobs, opposite Michael Fassbender, who is nominated in the Leading Actor category.

Dakota - who missed out on the EE Rising Star gong to John Boyega - looked an absolute treat in her pretty, crimson red gown, complete with a plunging neckline and ruffled detail over her slim waistline.
While all eyes were on the leading ladies, there were a few fashion fails of note, with TV presenter Poppy donning a bizzare turquoise and cream lace figure-hugging frock with a fishtail hem, and 1980s star Stefanie rocking a confusing gothic-inspired dress with feathered shoulders.
Fashion writer Simon Glazin was aghast at Powers' choice, saying: 'Whoever told Stephanie that the dead raven around her neck was a good idea should be fired. The dress is age appropriate - sheer panel and all - but the feathers just don't go.'
Inbetweeners Movie star Laura, 30, went for a total black-out with every part of her outfit - bar a slick of red lipstick and a simple pair of diamond earrings - dedicated to the darkest colour. Even her toenails, visible in a pair of weather-defying black sandals were painted in a charcoal hue.

And Rebel's knee length pencil skirt also wasn't a fashion hit, with the back of her dress continuing to the floor while the front cut off abruptly. The 35-year-old Australian looked more like she was ready for a day in the city then a night of untold glamour.
The young up-and-comer kept the rest of her aesthetic simple, her brunette tresses worn loose over her shoulders and a dash of red lipstick to tie it all together.
Shunning a typical red carpet look, 27-year-old Swedish actress Alicia flaunted her impeccable petite curves in the floor-length dress, constructed from matte black leather.
Adorned in glitzy embellishments to add a bit of razzle dazzle, the talented star's gown also included a tinsel-like decoration on the skirt.
Alicia - who wore her light brunette locks down in loose curls and pulled over to one shoulder so as not to distract from her directional dress - is nominated in the Best Actress category for her role in The Danish Girl, opposite fellow nominee Eddie Redmayne.

She is also nominated in the Supporting Actress category for her role in British movie Ex Machina, in which she played a humanoid robot.
However, somewhat tellingly she chose to walk the red carpet alone and without her boyfriend Michael Fassbender by her side.
Following in her wake was fellow Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan, who showed off her unique brand of quirky style in a strapless heavily decorated black dress by Burberry, covered with pink and gold glimmering flowers.
The 21-year-old - who appears in critically-acclaimed movie Brooklyn - added a funky oversized gleaming necklace in pinks, yellows and blues sat on her bare decolletage.

Her Brooklyn co-star Julie Walters, one of the United Kingdom's most beloved veteran stars, wowed in a glitzy blue gown as she turned on the charm, pulling faces for the cameras as she strode.
The The 65-year-old icon was nominated for her role in the Supporting Actress category, but missed out to Kate Winslet.
Also arriving on the red carpet in absolute dapper fashion was Leading Actor nominee Leonardo DiCaprio, garnering huge screams from the fans along the sidelines.

The 41-year-old Revenant star cut a sharp figure in his well-cut black tuxedo, a light smattering of facial hair on his chin.
He was later revealed - to rapturous applause - to be the winner of the Leading Actor prize.
BAFTA nominee Eddie Redmayne, who is hoping for his second win in two years, looked as handsome as ever, but he allowed his pregnant wife Hannah Bagshawe steal the spotlight.
The publicist looked ravishing in a crimson dress, clinging lightly to her figure and briefly allowing a glimpse at her growing baby bump.

Eddie, 34, won last year's Leading Actor gong for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, and this year he is nominated once again for his turn in The Danish Girl as a transgender woman.
Supporting Actress nominee Rooney Mara was typically ethereal in a pale nude gown, almost the same shade as her perfect porcelain skin.
The 30-year-old wowed in her divine dress, complete with a kind of crochet detailing across the fabric and delicate additions across her shoulders, the gown falling in a long, loose skirt in a pool around her feet.
Sticking to her gothic look, her raven locks were slicked back into a severe bun and her make-up was dramatic, her brows highlighted and heavy and her lips painted in a muted deep red.

She, along with her Carol co-star Cate, was nominated for a BAFTA, but in the Supporting Actress category.
Also making an eye-catching showing was Laura Whitmore: the 30-year-old is this year's official red carpet reporter for the BAFTAs and truly made sure to represent with her eye-catching gown.
She showed off her slender curves in the well-cut dress, which also showed off a hint of her cleavage thanks to its key-hole cut down the front of the chest, the fabric held together with a high neckline.
Joining her as one of the early arrivals was E! presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford who showed off her sensational figure in a beautiful black and white frock with a long train.

The former Xtra Factor star, 32, gave the Hollywood contingent a run for their money in her delectable dress, a classic strapless design that showed off her toned shoulders and arms before falling down in a long black floor-sweeping skirt.
Her hair was coiffed to perfection in tight curls, and her look was completed flawlessly with a dramatic slick of deep red lipstick.
Former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko made sure to make an impact in her beautiful, delicately covered sheer dress with a white lace pattern as she arrived with the other stars.

The brunette beauty 36-year-old French actress oozed confidence in her enviable attire while wearing her locks in a seriously elegant, glamorous side-swept style, her natural beauty glowing in front of the hundreds of movie fans lined up along the red carpet.
Meanwhile, as the ceremony kicked off, Brooklyn took home the first prize of the night.
The Saoirse Ronan-fronted drama took home the award for Outstanding British Film as the ceremony got underway on Sunday night at London's Royal Opera House.

The second win for Make Up and Hair went to Mad Max: Fury Road, while The Revenant scored the coveted best Cinematography gong.
Amy Winehouse biopic Amy, directed by Asif Kapadiaand James Gay-Rees, took home the best Documentary award.
Asif explained: 'We really fell in love with her when making the film. And our aim and mission was really to try and tell the truth about her.
'To show the world what an amazing person she was, how intelligent, how witty, how beautiful she was, before it all kind of got out of control and went a bit crazy.'

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight - which was snubbed in the major categories - was awarded Original Music for Ennio Morricone's score.
The British Short Film prize was presented to Operator, while British Short Animation went to Edmond.
Mad Max scooped its second win of the night for Editing, while The Revenant earned another award for Sound.
The Special Visual Effects winner was announced as Star Wars: The Force Awakens - and it was a lucky night for the franchise since John Boyega was awarded the EE Rising Star prize, beating hot favourite Dakota Johnson

The 23-year-old British actor also beat Taron Egerton, Brie Larson and Bel Powley to the win in the category, which celebrates young actors under the age of 30.
He said: 'I want to thank God for this moment. I have some very special people in my life... I'm going to share this award with all the young dreamers who are hard-working... This is for you.'
Angels Costumes received a special shout-out thanks to the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema award and the Fellowship Recipient was Sir Sidney Poitier.

Spotlight's Tom McCarthy and Josh Singer were given the Original Screenplay prize, while the Film Not in the English Language prize went to Wild Tales.
Mad Max's fourth gong of the night was for Production Design.
The big prizes on the night went to Brie Larson for Leading Actress, although the Room star was absent from the ceremony, and Leonardo won the Leading Actor gong for his role as Hugh Glass in The Revenant.
This marks Leonardo's very first BAFTA win - he has been nominated on three previous occasions but failed to receive the coveted prize.

The Revenant centres on 1820s frontiersman Hugh Glass, who is left for dead by members of his own hunting team.
He treks across the wilderness, hellbent on tracking down John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy), the former confidant who betrayed and abandoned him.
The Revenant also won Best Film, and it also scored another gong for its director Alejandro G. Iñárritu.
The coveted Leading Actress prize went to breakout star Brie Larson for Room, however, the 26-year-old beauty was a no-show at the ceremony due to filming commitments in Australia.
Bridge Of Spies star Mark Rylance was awarded the Supporting Actor gong - although he was also absent from the event.
