The Duchess of Cambridge stole the show when arriving at the 72nd annual EE British Academy Film Awards at London's Royal Albert Hall on Sunday evening. 

Leading the A-list stars, Kate, 36, wore a stunning Alexander McQueen off-the-shoulder white gown with a floral motif for her red carpet appearance as she arrived alongside her husband Prince William.

In a fitting tribute to Princess Diana, the royal is said to be wearing the same South Sea Pearl accessories worn by William's mother to a concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 1991. 

Looking every inch the film star, the royal mother-of-three teamed her billowing chiffon frock with a pair of shimmering Jimmy Choo Romy in Viola Glitter heels - estimated to cost around £525.

Wow in white like the Duchess of Cambridge in Alexander McQueen

The BAFTA Awards attracted a host of glamorous celebrities, but here at Fashion Finder we only had eyes for the Duchess of Cambridge.

Joining the Duke of Cambridge for the event, Kate brought her own essence of Hollywood by wearing this gorgeous asymmetric white gown by Alexander McQueen.

In classic Kate style, the dress hugged the bodice and came with a fitted waist before flowing into a billowing skirt. We love the floral detailing on the shoulder, which finished the dress in true couture style.

Completing the look, the Duchess wore Jimmy Choo 'Romy' shoes, Princess Diana’s pearl earrings and a diamond bracelet, which is on loan from the Queen.

Sadly, it’s unavailable to buy but peruse the designer’s current collection by clicking (right). However, if you want to copy Kate and get a regal look then peruse the edit below. And with similar styles by the likes of Elie Saab, Raishma and Lulus, we’ve covered all budgets.

Adding even more glitz to her glamorous cinched-waist gown, Kate donned a firm favourite of her's - the Queen's Quatrefoil bracelet, which belonged to the Queen's mother. 

Holding a small matching white clutch, the Duchess sported a glamorous makeup vibe with a pink lipstick and a dark smokey eye as she beamed for the cameras. 

Kate joined a host of stars including Rachel Weisz, clad in a cream coloured tulle layered dress which cinched in her tiny waist with a dazzling silver belt, and Amy Adams, who worked her magic in a sensational form-fitting deep burgundy gown.

The Duke, who is the president of BAFTA and donned a black dinner suit for the star-studded occasion, will present its highest accolade, the Fellowship, to film editor Thelma Schoonmaker during the ceremony. 

The royal couple were greeted at the entrance by the Royal Albert Hall's chief executive Craig Hassall before making their way to their seats, with the entire crowd getting to their feet to welcome them into the ceremony, which is being presented by Joanna Lumley. 

Elsewhere, Cate Blanchett wowed in a perilously low-cut black dress with a jewel-encrusted bodice, while debuting her newly-dyed brunette locks.

Upping the fashion ante, the screen star took the plunge as she went braless in the sizzling gown, while flashing a hint of her lean legs with the ensemble's thigh-high slit. 

Switching up her stunning appearance, natural blonde Cate styled her newly-dyed brunette tresses in a sleek blowdry. The Aussie star complemented her out-of-this-world beauty with rose-tinted eyeshadow, blush-swept cheeks and faint pink lipgloss. 

Also joining the royals at the occasion was Eleanor Tomlinson, who showed off her style credentials in a sensational baby pink number which featured an asymmetrical neckline, complete with a statement bow.

Rachel looked much younger than her years as she sported her dark chocolate brown tresses slicked behind her ears, while her features were enhanced with rosy blusher and deep pink gloss. 

Injecting some of her Hollywood glamour onto the red carpet, Amy Adams, 44, worked her magic in a sensational form-fitting deep burgundy gown.

The star, who is up for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role in Vice, dazzled in the low-cut number which was lined with an embellished brooch and put focus on her sensational front.

Amy had her dark fiery locks slicked back into a centre parted ponytail and she complemented her youthful features with a pair of striking drop earrings.

Meanwhile, Edith wore a slinky, shimmering number that cascaded down her lithe frame, flashing a hint of her midriff, a halterneck design at the top of the dress.

The dress was designed in a silver and clay-pink tone, showcasing her lean arms - with the former Survival Of The Fittest star complimenting the look with a natural palette of make-up.

She swept her blonde locks back behind her shoulders in a slick 'do. 

Edith Bowman sported a quirky ensemble: a pink floor-length floral dress, complete with white lacy neck ruff.

She added a pearly queen inspired vest over the top of the dress, embroidered with a red and white bouquet of flowers.

The ruffled lacy detailing continued to her sleeves and to the hem of the dress, which fell down the floor of the red carpet.

She added driving gloves to the ensemble, adding further intrigue to the inspiration of the get-up.

Edith - who is the red carpet host for the event - wore her dark blonde locks up and added statement earrings and a natural palette of make-up to her look.

The event is being held at the Royal Albert Hall for the third year in a row, after the move from the Royal Opera House.

Joanna Lumley is hosting for a second time after impressing last year in place of Stephen Fry while Cirque de Soleil will also be back with another performance after their 2018 tribute to Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water. 

Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite has swept the nominations with 12 nods in top categories including a Best Actress chance for its star Olivia Colman, Supporting Actress nominations for Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz and a shot at Best Film.

The Favourite will compete with A Star Is Born, BlacKkKlansman, Green Book and Roma for Best Film but surprisingly, after its success at last month's Golden Globes, Bohemian Rhapsody was snubbed in the category.

The Favourite is nominated in 12 categories. Bohemian Rhapsody, First Man, Roma and A Star Is Born each have seven nominations; Vice has six, BlacKkKlansman has five, and Cold War and Green Book have four each. Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Mary Poppins Returns, Mary Queen of Scots and Stan & Ollie have three nominations each.

The 2019 nod marks Olivia's sixth BAFTA nomination but her first for a film role after previously winning for TV hits Twenty Twelve, Accused and Broadchurch.

Olivia competes against Glenn Close for The Wife, Lady Gaga for A Star Is Born, Melissa McCarthy for Can You Ever Forgive Me?' and Widows star Viola Davis, but in another shock snub, Mary Poppins Returns lead Emily Blunt has missed out on a nomination. 

In fact, Mary Poppins Returns only received nominations in the technical categories for BAFTA, with three nods in total for Best Film Music, Best Production Design and Best Costume Design. 

Olivia's chances at scoring her first film BAFTA have only increased after she took home the Best Actress Motion Picture - Musical Or Comedy for The Favourite at the Golden Globes.   

Olivia's critically-acclaimed film was released last month and follows the love triangle Queen Anne forms with two of her female courtiers, played by Emma and Rachel, who are both nominated in the Best Supporting Actress Category.

The Favourite is also nominated for Outstanding British Film, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Production Design, Costume Design, Make Up & Hair, Editing and Yorgos Lanthimos for Director.

Bohemian Rhapsody could build on its surprise success at the Golden Globes with its seven BAFTA nominations, but it has missed out on chance at the Best Film prize.

The Queen biopic provided the biggest shock of the 2019 Golden Globes when it beat favourite A Star is Born to take home the Best Motion Picture Drama prize, which followed a win for leading man Rami Malek.

Rami is nominated for the BAFTA Leading Actor where he will again compete against A Star Is Born's Bradley Cooper as well as Viggo Mortensen and British actors Christian Bale and Steve Coogan.

Bale is the favourite to take home Leading Actor for his incredible transformation into Dick Cheney for Vice. 

A Star Is Born has scored the same number of BAFTA nominations as its rival Bohemian Rhapsody, with seven chances. As well as its Best Actor nod for Bradley, who also receives a nomination for Direction, Lady Gaga is nominated for Leading Actress.

The singer will again compete with Glenn Close for The Wife, who beat her in another surprise Golden Globes result. Melissa McCarthy and Viola Davis along with Colman make up the category.

The bookies favourites Glenn, Gaga and Olivia will go head to head at the BAFTAs as unlike the Golden Globes, there are not separate acting categories for drama, musical or comedy.

Also receiving seven nominations is Alfonso Cuarón's Roma which is nominated for Best Film, Film Not in the English Language, Director, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Production Design and Editing.

Cuaron will be a tough competitor in the Direction category, after winning best director honou
