Anya Taylor-Joy arrived on the BAFTA red carpet this evening in one of the most daring looks of the night.

The actor, 26, made quite the entrance in a gold, velvet floor-length shawl at the London awards show.

Her ensemble, which was designed by French fashion house Schiaparelli, also featured a matching bandeau minidress with a structured, hourglass silhouette.

At one point, she removed her shawl to pose for the cameras in just the frock on the BAFTA Awards red carpet, which featured bow detailing.
