The 2023 BAFTAs (British Academy Film and Television Awards) red carpet has been all about show stopping gowns and haute couture, with celebrities opting for drama over demure as we head into the end of awards season.

Everyone from Cate Blanchett to Florence Pugh was in attendance (as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) to celebrate the best of the silver and small screen for 2023. Below, find our favorite fashion from the 2023 BAFTAs red carpet.

It doesn’t get more dramatic than this iridescent Gucci gown that Jodie Turner-Smith chose for the BAFTAs. A contrast of feather and sequins, Turner-Smith teamed the gown with face crystals and metallic purple shadow.

Cate Blanchett won big at the BAFTAs — Best Actress for her role in TÁR — and chose a low-key gothic dress by John Galliano for Maison Margiela. Featuring the structured detail that’s become very much a part of Cate Blanchett’s style evolution, observant fans will notice it’s actually a repeat wear — Blanchett wore the same piece to the 2015 Oscars, teaming it back then with a Tiffany & Co. statement necklace, and this time around with Louis Vuitton pearls. Blanchett was also wearing a blue ribbon, which is in support of #WithRefugees and is a symbol of solidarity with the refugees across the globe.

One of the best at the 2023 BAFTAs was Florence Pugh, wearing Harris Reed’s first creation for Nina Ricci‘s upcoming Paris Fashion Week show. Featuring a mermaid-esque fishtail skirt and pleated structure around the bodice, Pugh’s team paired the gown with a ’90s twist hairstyle that mimicked the fan effect of the piece, plus Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

Kate Middleton loves to repurpose the beautiful gowns she’s worn in the past, just like Cate Blanchett — and she chose to do just that at the BAFTAs with this Alexander McQueen gown. Worn in 2019, the Duchess of Cambridge revamped the look with black opera gloves and affordable Zara earrings.

Emma Mackey’s Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello dress may have seemed very understated for the 2023 BAFTAs judging by its front, which was high-collared and slinky, but the back was where all the detail existed and featured a knee-high split that showed off platform velvet heels and a tie back that felt very 2000s-era Oscars red carpet (remember when everyone favored open backed gowns?). It pulled everything together for the Sex Education actress, who won the Rising Star Award.

Dialing the drama up several notches was Anya Taylor-Joy, who chose jaw-dropping couture, in Schiaparelli, for her 2023 BAFTAs fashion look. Wearing a structured velvet mini dress with a removable floor-length cape and Tiffany & Co. jewels, including an archive necklace, the The Menu star was unmissable on the red carpet.

Also in Louis Vuitton was Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, who chose this incredible bejeweled gown worn over high-waisted briefs and a black bra, giving modern naked dress on the BAFTAs red carpet.

Squid Game star Hoyeon Jung has been a standout on the red carpet, and continued her reign in this embellished Louis Vuitton gown by Nicolas Ghesquière, which felt very reminiscent of Grace Kelly and Old Hollywood stars on Jung, who teamed it with a sleek low bun and elegant diamond necklace.

We love a man who puts a twist on the classic red carpet tuxedo, and Eddie Redmayne certainly delivered in Alexander McQueen with this custom-made jumpsuit.

Playing things a little more traditionally, but still bringing a modern twist was Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page, choosing a velvet blazer over a collarless shirt.

Speaking of Bridgerton, Carey Mulligan took inspiration from period dramas with her Dior gown, which was simple and elegant. The actress was up for Best Supporting Actress for her role in She Said, and also revealed she’s expecting her third child.
