Another red carpet blackout as #TimesUp comes to the UK.

Sunday evening saw the 71st annual British Film and Television Awards take over London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Inside, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and The Shape of Water were the big winners, but on the red carpet, there was plenty to love from our part of the world.

Middle Eastern labels help support the #TimesUp cause
Does anyone wear this Lebanese label better than Angelina Jolie?

Most stars wore black in support of the #TimesUp movement to protest sexual abuse and harassment. A worthy goal.


Scroll on for the red carpet highlights.

Lupita Nyong’o in Elie Saab

Well hello, beautiful. Nyong’o is always beyond well-dressed, but the regal grace she’s bringing to her Black Panther appearances has really kicked things into another gear. The panelling, the contrast between the velvet and the sheer sections, the gold… it’s all very good.

We love every time she’s worn the Lebanese Saab, but this just shot to the top of the list.

Andrea Riseborough in Elie Saab

And the hits keep coming. The heavy silk skirt here (complete with dramatic slit) pairs beautifully with the beaded, delicate bodice and sleeves.

Saab has Riseborough looking otherworldly, and every bit red-carpet ready.

Naomie Harris in Zuhair Murad

We’re thinking very carefully and searching our archives, but we’re not sure we can ever recall Harris looking better than she does right here.

Her hair and makeup are perfect – she looks like she’s travelling with her own personal lighting rig – and as you scroll down it just gets better. Murad’s fringing and beadwork pull this caped jumpsuit together, but it’s Harris’s attitude that makes this such a triumph. Full marks.

Of course, there were other people there too. Here’s the best of the rest…

Salma Hayek in Gucci 

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, in Jenny Packham

Wearing black would go against royal protocol, but the Duchess opted for this muted dark green instead.

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior

Angelina Jolie in Ralph & Russo
