Even with the ongoing pandemic, the awards season carried on with the recent presentation of the British Academy Film Awards over the weekend. For the first time, the BAFTA Film Awards were held at the Royal Albert Hall in London, giving recognition to the past year’s honorable British and international films, as attended by the stars remotely or socially distanced.

Together celebrating BAFTAs 74th year, the stars attended the ceremony dressed to the nines while presenting awards or receiving recognition. Although most of the stars opted to wear monochromatic looks with silver and black, some of our favorites on the red carpet like Ashley Madekwe, Leslie Odom Jr., and Riz Ahmed shined in colored ensembles.

Here are our top fashion picks from one of the most important nights in British awards.

Renée looked fit and fab in a mid-calf metallic dress from Armani Privé, nude shoes, and a bejeweled bangle.
