Killing Eve star Jodie Comer wowed fans at the BAFTAs in a plunging tuxedo dress with a thigh-high split. The actress, who won the Lead Actress award for her role in the drama Help, donned the sleeveless custom-made BOSS dress, and teamed it with peep-toe Jimmy Choos to finish off the look.

When Jodie accepted her award on the night, she revealed how she got the part in the pandemic drama, which focuses around a care home and the effects of Covid-19 on residents. "I slid into the screenwriter's DMs years ago to say I wanted to work with him," she laughed.

Jodie wasn't the only one on the red carpet to subvert traditional menswear with a feminine twist. Oscar winner Olivia Colman, who starred in nominated drama The Landscapers, wore a black trouser suit with a tuxedo-style jacket, paired with strappy heels.
