Actor Riz Ahmed sported a muted colour Gucci ensemble on last night's red carpet, wearing a different coloured combination for his three-piece look. The jacket was a soft shade of sky blue, cut in a single-breasted front with two buttons and three rounded patch pockets (two large and one small on the chest). Just like the pocket seams, the collar and notch lapels were finished with reinforced stitching to provide more depth, whilst the jacket cuffs were designed with black buttons to match the black waistcoat underneath. This was fastened with four buttons and the low-scooped neckline meant the peach/beige shirt underneath (worn open collar) would stand out. The tan trousers were cut straight with a sharp centre front and hemline finishing on the shoe.

Donning a rather cool evening suit was actor Paapa Essiedu, whose attire consisted of a Gucci two-piece suit worn with a cream shirt and matching evening scarf draped underneath the jacket. The jacket itself included a smooth shawl collar leading into a one-button fastening, with two flapped pockets on the front and the classic welt pocket on the chest. Five buttons featured on the cuffs whilst the trousers, with their defining centre crease, fell to sit just above the shoe in their straight leg silhouette. A cummerbund was worn around the waist for the finishing touch.

Velvet was popular on the red carpet at this year's BAFTAs and actor Conrad Khan was wearing just that in the form of a burgundy dinner jacket, paired with matte black trousers to mirror the contrasting peak lapels. The jacket was fastened with both buttons over the white dinner shirt with a covered button placket, accessorising with a small yet classic black bow tie. With soft padded shoulders, the jacket also included two flapped pockets near the bottom, whilst the welt pocket on the chest had a blue and yellow ribbon attached to it as a mark of support for those in Ukraine. This ribbon was worn by many other celebrity attendees during the night.

The star of the film "Everybody's Talking About Jamie" Max Harwood, rocked the red carpet in a teal three-piece Moschino suit as the film was nominated for Outstanding British Film. The actor's suit was constructed from a glossy finish herringbone style cloth, the jacket finished with peak lapels and four-button cuffs on the sleeves. The trousers had a subtle flare to make the look extra powerful on the red carpet, with the centre crease emphasising the sharp lines of the suit. On the front of the jacket were two fastened buttons and two flapped pockets. A third ticket pocket with a triangular flap was also included as the top jet conveyed a subtle mint green colour for a contrasting detail. His waistcoat was also single-breasted in cut and cut high to show underneath the jacket, worn over a crisp white shirt.

Daniel Kaluuya

Actor Daniel Kaluuya wore a Prada ensemble on the red carpet for the BAFTAs, one that was navy blue in colour and looked so cool. The overcoat was made with notch lapels that were slightly wider than the collar and included the classic details of a welt pocket placed behind and flapped pockets below the waist. It was left unfastened as a white roll neck was worn underneath; but what stood out the most were the teal details around the sleeves and bottom of the coat, the light capturing the same blue hue that makes up the rest of the coat.

Kenneth Branagh

Actor and filmmaker Kenneth Branagh was a winner on the night, taking home the Outstanding British Film award for the film, "Belfast" in which he directed. For the red carpet, he sported a classic very dark blue/black evening three-piece suit with a black stud evening dress shirt underneath. The jacket's peak lapels are a standard width as they lead down into the two-button front with a flapped pocket either side. The welt pocket is enhanced through the folded white pocket square it holds, whilst his other accessory is a thin bow tie. The waistcoat includes four out of five buttons fastened and a notched hem, worn over a pair of slim trousers with a centre crease and subtle break in the hem near the bottom.

Ṣọpẹ Dìrísù

Actor Ṣọpẹ Dìrísù rocked up on the red carpet wearing a deep green Ozwald Boateng patterned dinner jacket that was paired with plain black trousers and a white formal shirt. The jacket was fastened with a single fastening and included two angled flapped pockets and a welt one on the chest, all pattern matched. The peak lapels were contrasting and matched the trousers, with a green embroidered buttonhole on the one lapel and slightly rounded shoulders to deliver extra structure and height. The actor's look was completed with a black bow tie and a collar pin just behind on the shirt's collar.

Troy Kotsur

He was the winner of the Supporting Actor BAFTA award for his performance in the film, "CODA", and made history by becoming the first deaf man to win a BAFTA. He looked dapper in his Gucci shawl collar dinner suit two flapped pockets on the front and four buttons on the cuffs. His double cuff dress shirt has a pleated centre panel whilst featuring a covered button placket for a smooth front. The trousers were slim and the hem finished just above the shoe with the statement satin side stripe down the trousers for that refined evening look. The black bow tie was the classic finishing touch, along with his flat cap to make this red carpet look even cooler.
