It's a red carpet event like none other, but certainly a glimpse at what's set to become the new normal, as the Baftas kick off tonight in London. 

The Virgin Media Bafta TV awards have just started, but it'll be unlike any glitzy celebrity event we've seen as the ceremony takes place behind closed doors. 

Still, that red carpet isn't rolled out for no one, and we got a chance to see some of our favourite stars kitted out to the nines for the event, including the two stars of Normal People. They are set to appear as guest presenters at the ceremony with Richard Ayoade hosting.

Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones reunited on the red carpet, keeping socially distanced from one another, but looking as dazzling as always. But there was one key co-star missing: Connell's chain. 

Mescal looked every inch the young heartthrob of the moment, stepping out in a sleek and modern dark grey suit by Dior. Expertly tailored, the suit featured a smart single-breast blazer and Mescal made it his own by pairing it with a simple white t-shirt and white trainers. 

Although he accessorised his outfit with pieces from Cartier, we were frankly devastated he didn't break out the silver chain, and we can't be the only ones. 

His co-star Edgar-Jones continued her streak as an up-and-coming fashion icon as she dazzled in a retro-inspired gown by Miu Miu. 

The black column-style dress featured striking embellishment across the bust, with large crystal detailing over the straps. Adding to the feminine 60s aesthetic Edgar-Jones is quickly becoming known for, the dress featured a stunning scalloped hem and midi length. 

She accessorised her outfit with a pair of fabulous strappy black sandals by Jimmy Choo, accented with a sparkling crystal bows, and delicate drop earrings. Her short bob was styled into loose waves, while her makeup – by Hourglass – was kept fresh and clean. 

Sharing some photos on Instagram, she wrote: "So lovely to see @paul.mescal and so lovely to wear something other than slippers." Girl, same.
