Two Swarovski collaborators have been nominated for their crystal-enhanced costume designs at this year’s EE British Academy Film Awards.

Alexandra Byrne (Mary Queen of Scots) and Julian Day (Bohemian Rhapsody) will be in for the chance to take home a gong at the awards ceremony taking place Feburary 10.

Swarovski crystals and Swarovski Crystal Pearls enhanced the royal wardrobes and jewels of both Mary Stuart (played by Saoirse Ronan) and Queen Elizabeth I (played by Margot Robbie) in Mary Queen of Scots, while Bohemian Rhapsody featured more than 56,000 Swarovski crystals, adding sparkle to Freddie Mercury (played by Rami Malek) and Queen’s performance outfits.

Both films collectively received a total of 10 BAFTA nominations including Outstanding British Film and Leading Actor (Rami Malek) for Bohemian Rhapsody and Supporting Actress (Margot Robbie) for Mary Queen of Scots.

The BAFTA Film Session on Costume Design will host this year’s nominees for a lively panel discussion at BAFTA’s global headquarters in London to uncover the secrets behind their craft during the Awards weekend.

Alongside Swarovski’s partnership with BAFTA, Atelier Swarovski has been announced as the Official Jewellery Partner for the Film Awards.

The brand will dress guests for the red carpet with its conscious luxury fine jewellery creations and fashion jewellery collaborations, and nominees are invited to a special Styling Suite at The Savoy Hotel to accessorize their looks for the most glamourous night in British film.
