The Best Dresses on the BAFTA Awards Red Carpet

The requirements for the EE British Academy Film Awards red carpet are far more complex than those of any in Hollywood. Why? Let's be honest, it's all down to the inclement weather. The BAFTAs walk is a notoriously chilly and windswept one—for A-listers and reporters alike—so navigating this glamorous affair without emulating scenes from The Revenant (if you haven't seen it, frostbite is all too common) is actually quite an ask. From Alicia Vikander in full-length leather to Dakota Johnson in yet another great spaghetti-strapped number, the starry line-up did not disappoint.
