The 73rd British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAS) took place at the Royal Albert Hall in London this evening, to honour excellence in both British and international film over the past year.
With some of the worlds biggest stars in attendance, Team Fuzz had our eyes firmly fixed on on the red carpet ahead of the royal ceremony, to get a sartorial glimpse at what some of our most favourite actors and actresses were wearing.
BAFTA 2020: Fashion with a Conscience
In the run of to this years awards, BAFTA organisers announced plans to introduce a brand new dress code for guests attending the event to follow, as part of a wider attempt to reduce its awards ceremony’s carbon footprint.
In a guide created by the London College of Fashion, attendees on the night were asked and encouraged, to consider re-wearing an outfit they already own, to rent an ensemble for the evening, to go vintage or to choose any other more sustainable option.
“Sustainability is very important to BAFTA, and we’re doing more than ever before.” a BAFTA spokesperson said in a statement via Harpers Bazaar ahead of this years ceremony. “The goal is that the EE British Academy Film Awards 2020 will be carbon neutral, working towards having a net positive impact on the environment. From travel and food, to branding and materials, BAFTA is ensuring the awards are as sustainable as possible.”
