BAFTAs 2020: Emilia Clarke, Margot Robbie and Scarlett Johansson lead best-dressed celebrities

Yahoo Style UK

Sunday’s BAFTA guests have not disappointed with their stylish ensembles – with the likes of Zoe Kravitz, Emilia Clarke and Charlize Theron turning heads in stunning designer gowns.

However, what made the outfits of the stars arriving at the annual ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall even more exciting was an admirable tweak to the regular dress code.

This year’s attendees were asked to recycle an outfit they already own or acquire a pre-loved one, rather than purchase a brand-new one for the night.

Kate Middleton stepped out in an Alexander McQueen gown she first wore on a royal tour of Malaysia in 2012.

She was joined by Joaquin Phoenix, who slipped on a Stella McCartney suit for a third awards ceremony in recent weeks, after the Golden Globes and SAG Awards.

Many famous faces are likely to have donned old favourites from their wardrobe, opted for vintage and second-hand, or even hired an outfit – and this environmentally friendly red carpet looked just as great as normal.

A guide provided to guests, created by the London College of Fashion, had encouraged those attending to rent outfits from sites including Hurr Collective, By Rotation and My Wardrobe HQ.

It also suggested looks could be sourced from Vestiare Collective and Depop, and highlighted eco-conscious brands including Stella McCartney and Reformation.

The move to promote sustainable fashion came as part of the organisation’s commitment to going “carbon-neutral” for its 2020 awards ceremony.

According to a press release, they announced: “From travel and food, to branding and materials, BAFTA is ensuring the awards are as sustainable as possible.”

And the dazzling eco-friendly style on show did not fail to impress.
