You may remember that the last time the BAFTAs took place, back in 2020, many celebrities ignored the request to wear something sustainable – the Duchess of Cambridge was one of the only high-profile guests to adhere to the dress code.

While it’s thought that the same dress code was issued for the 2022 event (shouldn’t this be standard for all red carpet events?), eco-friendly fashion seemed to be low on the agenda. Guests were clearly excited to go all out for the first full-capacity BAFTAs in two years, and that resulted in some memorable red carpet looks, but not, it seems, in sustainable style terms.
