On Sunday 10 February, London will roll out the red carpet for the 72ndBafta film awards.

The event will take place at the Royal Albert Hall and see nominees such as actresses Margot Robbie, Letitia Wright and Olivia Colman take to the stage in an array of designer dresses, bejewelled necklines, and embellished footwear.

The awards ceremony comes a year after members of the Time’s Up movement – an organisation that supports individuals who have experienced sexual misconduct in the work place – wrote a letter to attendees asking them to wear black to show their solidarity with victims.
