His and hers: The only thing distinguishing Brad Pitt from Angelina Jolie was an unbuttoned collar as the couple arrived on the red carpet at the 2014 EE BAFTAs in matching black suits on Sunday night

The 30-year-old actress, who failed to take home an award despite being nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category and the hotly-contested Rising Star award, positively dazzled as she smouldered in front of the camera in the simple, yet elegant, strapless frock, which featured a gold band around the middle to accentuate her slim waist.
Keeping her accessories to a minimum with gold cuffs and matching hoop earrings, the actress completed her red carpet ensemble with sexy smoky eye make-up and ruby red lips.
Lupita was accompanied by her mother Dorothy, who also wore a colourful ensemble, to the prestigious awards.

And she wasn't the only celebrity to show up with a date.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie opted for matching black suits as they attended the event, with only an unbuttoned collar distinguishing the stunning actress from her heartthrob husband.
Angelina, 38, locked arms with her handsome 50-year-old husband, part of the cast of BAFTAs Best Film 12 Years A Slave, while sporting an open-buttoned collar and loose bow tie as they joined a star-studded crowd at London's Royal Opera House.

The LA-born actress teamed her look with a black blazer by Saint Laurent, a pair of loose black trousers and black stiletto heels, while Brad opted for the exact same outfit, with just some slight adjustments. 
Following close behind was nominee Leonardo DiCaprio, who has received a Best Actor nod for his role in The Wolf Of Wall Street, with the star spending plenty of time interacting with his fans and signing autographs as he headed inside the Opera House.

He tied up his dickie bow, buttoned up his black Valentino blazer and wore a pair of patent brogues to make sure that his look was slightly different.
