Coronation Street won Best Soap at the RTS TV Awards in London – the Oscars of the TV world – and it’s actresses looked just as glam as Hollywood stars. Kym Marsh (above) looked like an old school movie starlet in a black maxi dress whereas Jenni McAlpine went for a lacy knee length dress but looked equally pretty. When it came time to collect the award, the actresses owned the stage. Afterwards Jenni McAlpine posted a photo to her Twitter account and took to the dancefloor at the after-party at The Grosvenor House Hotel all night- I like her style!
Black never goes out of fashion when it comes to dresses and it’s incredible just how many ways there are to wear a black going out dress. Kym’s black maxi dress was world’s apart from Jenni’s figure-hugging lace dress while best actress nominee Sheridan Smith’s dress was more attention-grabbing than them both. Sherdian was nominated for her part in ITV drama Mrs Biggs and seems to be excelling at everything these days. She’s a success at theatre after two years as Elle in Legally Blonde, warm and funny in TV shows (especially Gavin and Stacey) and at the RTS awards she exclusively revealed it was film for her next. She’s made a movie called The Powder Room and the interesting thing about it is that it unfolds in a nightclub toilet. She looked far too glam for any bathroom talk in her little black dress!
Also channelling the black trend in a looser way with a monochrome dress was Hollyoaks actress Anna Schaffer. Anna’s had some massive storylines in the soap and is loving it. She said she wants more drama and wants to stay at Hollyoaks as long as the action keep happening. We hope she gets her wishes as it wouldn’t be the same without her! It was great to see her dressed up at the awards and I loved how her red lipstick brilliantly contrasts with the black dress. So chic!
Who do you think looked the best in their black dress? I think they all looked amazing, it’s so hard to pick!
