Covent Garden’s Royal Opera House is currently overflowing with acting talent and high fashion credentials as the BAFTA Awards 2012 take place.

We’ve rounded up our favourite red carpet looks from the event, where designs from eccentric British designer Vivienne Westwood have proven popular, along with a few surprises (Michelle Williams in H&M!?). Although the BAFTAs are known as a toned down version of the up-coming Oscars, fashion choices have proven to be just as exciting and luxurious.
