Jennifer Lawrence and Kristin Scott Thomas were among the stars who wore black to the Baftas in support of victims of sexual harassment and assault.

Nominees and guests at the ceremony in London followed the lead set at the Golden Globes in January by adopting an all-black dress code in solidarity with Time’s Up, the movement launched in the wake of the entertainment industry’s sexual assault scandal.

Hollywood star Lawrence turned heads in a black dress with an unusual square-cut neckline and floaty white chiffon sleeves.

The actress’s hair was straight and loose and she added even more glamour with bright red lipstick.

She also wore a Time’s Up badge to show her support for the cause.

Octavia Spencer lit up the carpet with a long black sparkly number and twinkling jewels at her ears.
