For the party, Kate wore a sexy black dress with a see-through corset and cut-outs at the hips. Also, the dress had a spectacular neckline, draping on the long skirt and an original strap with pleats.

The dress had lacing and a long train at the back. Stylists also gave Kate a high ponytail with curls and a big bow. She was holding a clutch in her hand.

The appearance at the event came as a surprise as the actress had previously lashed out at BAFTA organizers for refusing to guarantee her stepfather Roy Battersby, who died on January 10 aged 87, a place in the In Memory Of memorial letter at the BAFTA Awards.

According to the organization's website, In Memory Of was created in 2006 "to pay tribute to the dedicated and passionate people who have passed away and worked in the film, gaming and television industries."

Angry, Kate wrote a post on Instagram, expressing her dissatisfaction and attaching a photo of herself with her stepfather and mother.

"Here's a photo right after I presented my stepdad with a special Alan Parker Award for his incredible work as a director on television," Kate writes. "BAFTA told me today that they 'cannot guarantee' it will be included in the In Memory Of memorial to the industry members we have lost. So a man who died less than a week later somehow has to be heard before a committee after a long career (for which he was awarded by said organization the highest honor they have) to decide whether his death should be commemorated."

The actress also shared in the post that her mother, Judy Lou, has been undergoing treatment for stage four cancer for the past six years.

Later, the actress wrote another post in which she noted that Roy was included in the memorial letter, but the BAFTA management did not apologize to her for such a "cold" response.
