The stars of the theatre gathered at the Royal Opera House on Sunday night to celebrate and honour their peers at the annual Olivier Awards.

Dame Judi Dench took home her incredible eighth award from the ceremony for her supporting role in The Winter's Tale, whilst Imelda Staunton won everyone over in her role in Gypsy, winning the award for best actress in a musical. However, despite the action going on inside the ceremony, the real event was on the red carpet where every star stepped out of their costumes and into some spectacular outfits for the occasion.
