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?

Best looks and High Street finds from the NTA’s

The NTA’s are always a bit of a feeble hunting ground when it comes to stylish, classy looks. For some reason, put a red carpet in front of our soap stars, reality TV stars and TV presenters, and you suddenly get flesh on display, lots of it. Bare Midriffs, outrageous amounts of cleavage and sheer skirts flashing acres of leg and a whole lot more are the uniform of choice for this event, and so as someone who loves to look at beautiful dresses, this is one red carpet event that tends to leave me cold – colder than the barely dressed stars.

But that doesn’t mean there were no looks worth a second glance. The ladies from breakfast television looked great, and even added some High Street into the mix, wearing Coast and Phase Eight. Best friends Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton both chose to wear white (it seems to be the colour of the season) and looked glam and gorgeous. Hilariously, Holly was still wearing the same (now stained) dress on ‘This Morning’, which should now probably be renamed ‘the morning after.’ I also loved Maisie Williams, who looked young and fun in tulle. I may be slightly biased about this look, because, as a Carrie Bradshaw devotee, tulle and net skirts can never be a bad look.

Rochelle Humes looked as classy and elegant as ever in a coral column dress, but my two best dressed ladies on the night were also both sporting baby bumps. Suranne Jones, amazing in Doctor Foster, kept it simple and classic in black, while Emma Willis went for an unusual floral Stella McCartney dress which upheld her tradition of totally rocking this particular red carpet event.
