Award shows these days are no longer just about celebrities dressing up in their best gowns and suits and winning trophies. They are now also used to address political and social issues.

This awards season, sustainability has been one of the key trends among the institutions to help reduce environmental impact.

Following Golden Globes’ sustainability measures, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts also joined the movement and served vegan dishes on the menu.

A spokesperson told Harper’s Bazaar: “Sustainability is very important to BAFTA, and we’re doing more than ever before.”

“The goal is that the EE British Academy Film Awards 2020 will be carbon neutral, working towards having a net positive impact on the environment. From travel and food, to branding and materials, BAFTA is ensuring the awards are as sustainable as possible.”

In addition to the vegan menu, the organizers sent out a set of sustainable fashion guidelines to the attendees as part of an attempt to reduce the production of carbon footprint.

In the guideline, created by the London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainability, guests were encouraged to rent clothes, purchase vintage, re-wear looks that they have worn before or wear a more earth-friendly look.

However, it seemed like not everyone got the memo. Stars gathered at the Royal Albert Hall for the ceremony and many wore looks straight off the runway. But style-wise, the red carpet didn’t disappoint.

Aside from Renee Zellweger, Charlize Theron, and Florence Pugh, below are some of the interesting looks from the 2020 BAFTA red carpet.

1. Scarlett Johansson Oozes Sex Appeal in Versace

Scarlett Johansson was up for Best Actress in a Leading Role and Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Marriage Story and Jojo Rabbit, respectively.

Although she didn’t take home any gongs, she was already a winner on the red carpet in her ‘20s-inspired Atelier Versace gown, which reportedly took 550 hours to make.

Scarlett was oozing sex appeal in the striking crystal beaded pink dress that highlighted her hourglass figure. It features sexy cutout details, a cleavage-baring neckline, a feathered train, and a thigh-high slit.

Styled by Molly Dickson, the blonde bombshell teamed her outfit with Nikos Koulis white diamonds and gray drop earrings.

To complement her dress, makeup artist Frankie Boyd applied shimmery pink eyeshadow, matching lipgloss, and pink blush. Hairstylist Danilo styled her blonde tresses up in a sleek chignon.

2. Margot Robbie Goes for Vintage-Inspired Chanel Gown

Margot Robbie, Supporting Actress nominee for both Bombshell and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, opted for understated elegance in a black Chanel Spring 2020 Haute Couture gown.

The floor-length vintage-looking outfit features lace cape shoulders, a cinched waist with peplum detail, and a cutout back.

Hairstylist Bryce Scarlett pulled Margot’s peroxide blonde locks back and let a few strands fall loose on one side. Makeup artist Pati Dubroff lined her eyes and added a hint of sparkle on her lids.

3. Laura Dern Is a Winner in Red Valentino Gown

Laura Dern has been sweeping up awards this awards season. And on Sunday’s BAFTAs, she picked up another Best Supporting Actress gong for her role in Marriage Story.

The 52-year-old actress took to the stage in a stunning red velvet gown by Valentino Haute Couture. The halter dress features an elaborate bodice embellished with jewels and feathers. It also has a satin waistband and a floor-length skirt with side pockets.

Stylist Cristina Ehrlich kept Laura’s accessories to a minimum with just a pair of diamond earrings by Jessica McCormack. Her hair was styled into a center-parted ponytail with a slight bouffant and a few wisps framing her softly made-up face.

4. Saoirse Ronan in Ill-Fitting Gucci Ball Gown

Saoirse Ronan, who was nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, opted for a Gucci gown that’s made from discarded satin.

Saorise’s stylist Elizabeth Saltzman told British Vogue: “We wanted to create a gown that didn’t waste any resources or people’s time.” “It’s the first time we’ve gone dead simple, but we’ve been geeking out about the intricate craftsmanship.”

The 25-year-old actress looked beautiful and her black ball gown was sexy yet elegant. However, it looked ill-fitting with its low-waist design and a bit overwhelming for her frame.

Saorise added some sparkle to her look with Gucci drop earrings and a bracelet. Her hair was styled in an artsy vintage-looking updo, while her vibrant coral lipstick and winged eyeliner elevated her look.

5. Naomie Harris Glistens in Michael Kors Metallic Gown

Bond girl Naomie Harris flaunted her toned figure in a custom Michael Kors Collection gown. She went braless underneath her metallic halter neck dress, which perfectly clung to her every curve. It is entirely embellished with silver and black sequins and has fringe detail, a low scoop neckline, and a thigh-high slit.

6. Ella Balinska in a Twee Giambattista Valli Gown

Charlies Angels star Ella Balinska opted for a sweet floral look, wearing a Giambattista Valli Spring 2019 Haute Couture gown. She braved the weather in the pink high-low number, which has ruffle details and a dramatic train.

While it’s a bit unflattering, the 23-year-old actress still managed to pull it off. Her black Casadei pumps, however, didn’t complement the outfit’s soft, feminine vibe. A pair of silver sandals would have looked better with her dress and with her Cartier jewelry.

Her pink smokey eye-makeup, crafted by Vincent Oquendo, and high ponytail by Rio Sreedharan rounded out her look.

7. Greta Gerwig in a Flattering Gucci Gown

Loose-fitting, long-sleeved ankle-length dresses have been her signature style, so it was quite surprising to see Greta Gerwig in a gown that flatters her figure at the BAFTAs.

Nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay for her movie Little Women, the 36-year-old actress and filmmaker wore a custom Gucci gown. It has a flattering fitted bodice that gently flares out to a softly pleated floor-sweeping skirt. It also has crystal-embellished straps and a sweetheart neckline that showed a glimpse of her cleavage.

Zoe Kravitz opted for a sleek gilded look in a metallic gold gown from Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello.

Channeling old Hollywood glamour, the embellished liquid gold gown highlighted her svelte figure with its nipped-in waist. It also has long sleeves and a floor-length skirt with a slit.
