Tonight, Hollywood stars are descending on the Royal Albert Hall in London for the British Academy Film Awards, otherwise known as the Baftas.

This year’s ceremony, which marks the 73rd consecutive year it has been held, is being presented by British television host Graham Norton for the first time ever, while Edith Bowman and Dermot O'Leary will be on hand to quiz guests about their outfits as they arrive on the red carpet.

The nominees for the Baftas – which you can see here – were announced in January and give both cinephiles and fashion fans an indication of which stars are likely to grace the red carpet for 2020.

As the president of the Baftas, Prince William is expected to attend this year’s ceremony alongside Kate Middleton, while a myriad of familiar on-screen faces such as Margot Robbie, Florence Pugh, Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio are also expected to make an appearance.

As is the case every year, the Baftas red carpet attracts a number of fashionable figures but for 2020, attendees have been asked to follow a very specific dress code.

This year, the British award body has created a sustainable fashion guide alongside the London College of Fashion, which encourages guests to either re-wear something they already own or hire an ensemble as opposed to buying something new.

It also urges guests to make the most of rental fashion sites and opt for sustainable fashion brands, such as Stella McCartney and Reformation, which are renowned for using innovative eco-friendly materials.
