BAFTA Awards 2024: Key Fashion Trends on the Red Carpet

The BAFTA Awards 2024 showcased fashion-packed red carpet moments full of directional trends and couture messages. Here are some of the key trends that dominated the event.



In a sea of black gowns, an assortment of red stood out, bringing power and drama to the carpet. Dua Lipa made a statement in a Valentino halterneck with a dramatic cape and burgundy-colored hair.

Surprise Orange

Orange was the unexpected shade on the BAFTAs red carpet. Ayo Edebiri stole the show with a peachy 1920s-inspired Bottega Veneta gown paired with a white feather boa, creating a timeless yet modern look.

Waist Details

Canadian actress Taylor Russell showcased a memorable look from British designer Jonathan Anderson for Loewe. Her white gown with cutouts revealing her back and waist, along with feather embellishments, resembled a real-life Swan. Florence Pugh also embraced waist-forward fashion in a black Harris Reed gown with a metallic bustier.

Plunging Necklines

Phoebe Dynevor captured old-Hollywood glamour in a white satin gown with one of the lowest cuts of the night, highlighting the trend of plunging necklines for seductive appeal.

Menswear/Top Coat

The men on the red carpet have been giving the ladies a run for their money, and the BAFTAs were no different. The evening top coat has become a go-to choice, with Bradley Cooper adding a military spin to his look with a '70s-flavored pant.


Metallics were a prominent trend, in line with recent haute couture shows. Sheila Atim made a statement in a silver metallic Gucci gown with a short train, solidifying her spot as one of the best-dressed attendees.
