For the star-studded occasion, 45-year-old Colman donned a chic black dress from Prada. The elegant gown featured a fishtail and fluted sleeves. A teal satin clutch bag completed the look.

Meanwhile, Bonham Carter, 53, who’s known for her quirky sense of style, turned to London Fashion Week designer Ryan Lo for her feather-embellished gown.

Doherty matched the red carpet in a full-skirted dress by Dolce & Gabbana. The dress featured a corset bodice and satin straps.

Anderson, 51, arrived in a luxe look: a velvet, midnight blue dress paired with a faux fur jacket.

Menzies wore a single breasted check, three-piece suit, shirt and silk tie by Corneliani.

While Treadaway, who plays Roddy Llewellyn, opted for a blue, three-piece suit.
