The festival’s awards was a heavily star-studded event, attended by the likes of Janelle Monae in a stunning Christian Siriano Gown, Jessica Chastain in Gucci, and Cate Blanchett in a breathtaking Alexander McQueen suit. Let’s take a look at our highlights of the glorious fashion that never fails to disappoint on the BFI London Film Festival red carpet… 

Taylor Russell

Star of Luca Guadagnino’s ‘Bones And All’, alongside Timothee Chalamet, Taylor Russell graced the red carpet in a satin corseted matador-inspired set with a draped skirt by Schiaparelli. The pièce de résistance came from an elegant wide-brimmed black boater hat that effortlessly tied the look together with an unmatched beauty.

Janelle Monae

Janelle Monae stepped out onto the red carpet in a rich red Christian Siriano gown with a sheer mesh long sleeved top, worn with a red bandeau underneath, and a hugely ruffled and gathered skirt layered with a draping floor length mesh skirt underneath. The actress paired this iconic piece with a beautifully striking red head piece and statement gold earrings that tumbled to her shoulders.

Jessica Chastain

Chastain’s look was one of simple, classical elegance; the floor length orange Gucci gown featured a deep V cut in the neckline and a symmetrical V cut slit up the centre of the gown from the hem to create a classy triangular silhouette in the piece.
