While many of the music's finest were getting ready for the 2015 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, it was Britain's turn to celebrate showbiz at this year's British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards (BAFTAs).

The opulent surroundings of the Royal Opera House set the scene for the prestigious evening as the highest category of actors, producers and directors made their way on to the 2015 BAFTA red carpet.

The always glowing Keira Knightley was one of the first to arrive in a strapless black-and-white, floral embellished Giambattista Valli couture dress, as was Julianne Moore who looked timeless in a simple Tom Ford gown.

Meanwhile, Reese Witherspoon opted for a look from British designer Stella McCartney, donning a figure-hugging purple creation with a plunging neckline, as Big Eyes actress Amy Adams dazzled in a tight, white floor-length Lanvin dress with a jewelled belt.

The gentlemen were also dressed to impress, as Burberry face Eddie Redmayne looked dashing in a velvet suit, while Benedict Cumberbatch choose to go for a more subtle look in Alexander McQueen. Representing the Beckham's, retired footballer David also looked dapper in a slick tuxedo.
