Irish stars Saoirse Ronan and Caitriona Balfe stunned in black alongside stars including Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lawrence on the BAFTAs red carpet.

Saoirse (23) is up for the Best Actress BAFTA for her role in Lady Bird and appeared on the red carpet among names including Angelina Jolie, Julie Walters, and Jennifer Lawerence.

Speaking to Edith Bowman on the red carpet, Saoirse, who wore black with her hair tied up, said she does not feel star stuck by the calibre of stars in attendance.

"I honestly get more star stuck meeting Dermot O'Leary!" she laughed.  "So many of us have been going to awards shows and events over the last five months so we've all gotten to know each other quite well.  It's nice.  It feels a bit more of a community."

Fellow Irish star Caitriona Balfe also wore a black gown to the event, as did the vast majority of attendees.  The move is in solidarity with Time’s Up – the movement launched following the sexual harassment scandal which engulfed Hollywood after an avalanche of allegations were made against film producer Harvey Weinstein.

A notable exception to the sea of black was the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge who wore a full length olive green gown, but with a black belt.

In a move mirroring last month’s Golden Globes initiative, actresses Tessa Thompson, Andrea Riseborough, Gemma Arterton, Gemma Chan and Naomie Harris are joined by special guests.

The move comes after more than 190 female British stars penned an open letter demanding an end to harassment, abuse and impunity across all industries.

Darkest Hour star and supporting actress nominee Kristin Scott Thomas was one of the first stars to arrive as the night kicked off with a performance from Cirque du Soleil.

Angelina Jolie, dressed in black, spent time signing autographs for fans on the red carpet.  The 42-year old  star wore a pair of 32.908 carat diamond Graff earrings and a 16.69 carat Graff cocktail ring.

Jolie's latest directorial effort, First They Killed My Father, is nominated in the film not in the English language category.
