Prince William, who is president of BAFTA, and his wife, Kate Middleton, graced the red carpet with regal elegance, while Hollywood shone in a variety of styles. More than a night to celebrate the British film industry, it also shone a light on the talent of designers Stella McCartney, Erdem and Christopher Kane.
