Virtually all the stars at the London ceremony were in black and some were accompanied by rights campaigners.

One of the few in a colourful dress was best actress winner Frances McDormand – but she told the ceremony: “I stand in full solidarity with my sisters.”

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton wore a dark green dress with a black ribbon belt.

Bethan Holt, fashion news and features director at The Telegraph, told BBC News:

“The Royal Family very rarely get involved in political messaging, so perhaps it’s not such a surprise that she didn’t join in with the rest of the women and wear black tonight.”

But the vast majority of other attendees did wear black as well as Time’s Up badges – all in reference to a push for greater respect and equality since the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal.

The 71st British Academy Film Awards, more commonly known as the BAFTAs, held on 18 February 2018 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, to honour the best national and foreign films of 2017.

Just as big Hollywood names Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep chose to demonstrate their anger at the levels of sexism and abuse in the film industry at the Golden Globes awards ceremony in Los Angeles last month, so high-profile British actors and campaigners decided to underline their solid stance against the widespread failings and inequalities in showbusiness on the eve of the Bafta film awards.
