Arriving at the British film industry’s equivalent to the Oscars with her husband Prince William, the royal turned heads on the red carpet in a dress she had previously worn to 2019’s awards. But she transformed the look with an altered shoulder design and a pair of opera gloves.

Making their first appearance at the annual awards in three years, the couple were among the most hotly anticipated arrivals at London’s Royal Festival Hall. The Princess was one of several stars opting for a black and white palette on a night that included a tribute to William’s late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
William, who has been president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts since 2010, meanwhile stuck to a classic black-tie dress code in a velvet tuxedo.

Elsewhere on Sunday’s red carpet, it was a night of relatively pared-back fashion. Jamie Lee Curtis stunned in a black and white ensemble, while Julianne Moore combined a black draped bustier gown with a white feather jacket.
