TV BAFTAS – The best looks

Last night was the TV BAFTAS, which saw the most stylish stars of the small screen walking the red carpet. Anna Friel, Thandie Newton, Suranne Jones and Tess and Claudia were amongst those who turned up to celebrate the most glittering night in the television calendar and were also amongst the best dressed, with Thandie and Anna taking my own personal vote.

The designs were surprisingly varied, most award ceremonies this year have seen very similar styles, or a run on one particular colour, but the BAFTAS ranged from very elegant little black dress styles sported by the likes of Jessica Raine, slinky cocktail dresses like the sugar pink Roland Mouret cocktail style worn by Tess Daly. I loved that singer Ella Eyre kept it young and funky in frothy pink Molly Goddard, and that Thandie totally brought Hollywood class in a Vivienne Westwood dress that was almost rose gold in colour, and stunning in design.

Joanna Lumley showed that real style is timeless and looked elegant in a fluid silver skirt, whilst Suranne Jones showed once again why she is one of the most stylish and talented stars of the small screen in a red ballgown by Suzanne Neville.

I have picked out my personal favourite gowns from the night – did anyone stand out for you?

BAFTA 2017 – Fave Looks

The most important night in British film is always a good place to look when it comes to glamorous Hollywood Stars and the best of British truly shining on the red carpet. I am talking about the Bafta’s of course, aka the British Academy Awards, and this year has proved to be a bit of a vintage one in terms of fashion, with some really lovely looks including a suitably regal one from the Duchess of Cambridge in Alexander McQueen.

This years awards showcased a range of beautiful looks in a range of colours and styles.  There were strapless styles, halter necks as showcased by Nicole Kidman in Armani Prive and a range of sleeve lengths, with Michelle Williams opting for a 1960s style shift from Louis Vuitton (does anyone else think she looks more and more like Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby? Or is it just me?). Naomie Harris was beautifully romantic in Gucci ruffles and frills, whilst best supporting actress winner Viola Davis was bringing a beautiful touch of spring in her striped Jenny Packham dress which just showcased her incredible curves. (Don’t mind admitting I have terrible boob envy when it comes to Viola).

When it comes to taking a  fashion risk you know that you can rely on Emma Stone, a real Hollywood fashionista. This time her risk totally paid off. I LOVED her beautiful midi dress from Chanel that she wore over the top of a pair of peg trousers. The sparkle of the outfit and the otherwise minimal styling was so fresh and beautiful. I really can’t wait to see what she wears when she picks up her Oscar (we all know it’s going to happen!).

There are several other looks, all beautiful, that I really loved tonight. What was your favourite from the British Oscars?

Flower Power from Wallis

This post is inspired by the beautiful weather we are having at the moment…and Helen McCrory. Bright, sunshine weather always makes me turn to the pretty floral pieces I have in my wardrobe, it just seems so apt to be wearing something floaty and pretty when the days are fine and warm. Thus my first influence is quite easily explained.

The second is the fabulous actress Helen McCrory. I honestly can’t think of an actress who does florals on the red carpet quite as wonderfully as Helen. Last night she rocked up at the Television BAFTA’s in a stunning orange, floral print dress that was both classic in terms of style, and fashionable in terms of the tropical print (see Friday’s fashion post where I looked at botanical prints here).

This is not the first time Helen has opted for florals on the red carpet, last time she did it I swooned that her dress also had pockets too. It seems that the lady playing Aunt Polly in Peaky Blinders is totally inspiration when it comes to wearing ‘all things bright and beautiful’ style prints, a look that is very easy to adopt at the moment.

Wallis are having a bit of a floral fashion moment, with everything from glamorous maxi dresses to practical trousers festooned with blooms. There are some beautiful dresses that would take you to a wedding or a day at the races, blazers that could work as unusual work wear, and pretty tops that just need a pair of jeans to rule the weekend.

What do you think of florals – a yes or no?
