It might be the biggest night in British television, but it was the Irish stars that almost stole the show at the Bafta's ceremony tonight. 

With multiple Irish stars nominated for awards tonight, including Saoirse Ronan for Little Women, it was a triumphant celebration of Irish talent and many of our brightest stars dazzled on the red carpet. 

Attendees were asked to either re-wear old pieces or choose vintage in an effort to be more sustainable and promote an eco-friendly approach to fashion. 

Saoirse Ronan continued her style streak by stepping out in a custom black gown by Gucci, featuring a corset bodice and sweeping satin skirt. The dress was sustainably made in a way that made the most of resources, and looked stunning to boot. 

Jessie Buckley, also nominated for an award for Leading Actress for her role in Wild Rose, turned out an unusual look on the red carpet in a black and white feathered piece. Featuring a black velvet full skirt and deep v-neck accented with sequins and plumes of white feathers, the gown was a truly bold statement. 

Paired with a deep chocolate brown lipstick and chic cropped bob with a micro fringe, we loved Buckley's unique take on red carpet fashion. 

Velvet was a theme for the guys, too, as legendary comedian and talk show host Graham Norton donned an opulent red velvet blazer for the event. The stunning creation featured intricate floral embroidery, and popped beautifully against Norton's black trousers, shirt and bowtie. 

And man of the moment, Andrew Scott looked equally dapper in velvet, the Fleabag star continuing his love affair with bold colours on the red carpet. His choice for tonight was a muted teal green velvet blazer, layered over a sophisticated white dress shirt, black trousers and sleek bowtie. 

Amy Huberman also attended, looking like a modern fairytale princess in her periwinkle blue tulle gown from Helen Cody. Feminine and romantic, the voluminous gown featured a high neckline, ruffled detail on the bust, sheer sleeves with cut-outs and swirling embroidery across the skirt. 

Paired with her glossy blonde waves, glowing makeup and shimmering drop earrings, Huberman looked every inch the red carpet pro. 

Another bright light on the carpet was Aisling Bea, who looked radiant in a sliver sequin gown from Hasan Hejazi featuring black detailing and a thigh-high slit. The actress and writer added a spring-appropriate pop of colour with turquoise heels and matching nail polish, while a vampy red lip kept things black tie. 

Styled by Angie Smith, Love Island presenter Laura Whitmore wore an emerald dress from sustainable clothing brand Reformation. The 'Rey Dress' is midi length with a slight sweetheart neckline, puff shoulder sleeves, and smocked back bodice. The Bray woman completed the look with sleek hair and a bold red lip.

Posing with Dame Kristin Scott Thomas, Irish actress Sharon Horgan wore a full-length navy dress with black detailing and a thigh-high split. She accessorised with some glitzy earrings and a statement ring.
