While not all of the nominees and BAFTA guests walked home with a golden gong, certain stars chose to wear the hue in the form of metallic materials.
Christina Ricci glittered in a gold gown by Givenchy with subtle short sleeves and centre split.
She accessorised with silver drop earrings and a bracelet adding dark eyes and a dramatic up do for extra edge.
Gillian Anderson continued the precious metal theme in a burnt gold strapless textured number.
The sweetheart neckline showed off her slender décolletage while the intricate statement jewellery said all the rest.
Emilia Fox dressed her slender frame in a vintage frock complete with layers of lace and a train.
The antique gold worked well against her deep red hair, teased into 40s waves. She pulled the look together with gold drop earrings and a clutch.
The Help star Jessica Chastain continued the precious metal theme in a silver pleated creation by Oscar de la Renta.
She was every inch the Grecian goddess with rope detailing and a strapless style.
