From Brangelina’s matching his & hers outfits to Oprah’s last-minute sewing project, this year’s BAFTAs provided lots of fun behind-the-scenes pictures. Here are eight ways the stars prepped for the 2014 EE BAFTA Awards:

1. THEY GOT SEWN INTO THEIR DRESSES

Well, one did. @oprah shared this hilarious InstaVid of her being sewn into her Stella McCartney gown with less than an hour left until the red carpet.

3. THEY WORE MATCHING HIS & HERS 

Hollywood heavyweights Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie arrived in coordinated tuxedos – Angie went for a slightly undone approach while Brad went the more buttoned-up route. We adore!
