TRIC stands for TV and Radio Industries Club and the annual awards ceremony is a big deal as the stars vote for their peers. To know that other people in the same industry think you are doing a great job is a huge honour!
The awards ceremony may take place during the day in London’s five-star Grosvenor House Hotel, but the dress code is more suited to night-time glamour. It’s less formal than the BAFTAs or the Oscars, but there are a lot of pretty party dresses, which is more practical for the rest of us to copy as there are a lot more occasions to wear party clothes than there are formal maxi dresses.
Soap stars, TV presenters and reality TV contestants all showed up to the awards do so there was plenty of glamour and inspiration. Let’s have a closer look at who wore what before moving onto who won what:
Holly won three awards – TV personality, one for This Morning and one for Celebrity Juice – and looked gorgeous as she collected them in a monochrome prom dress with a full skirt. It’s very flattering as it showcased her small waist before flowing out to show off her curves. It’s not a complicated dress in terms of embellishment but it’s a fabulous fit and shape.
Vicky went for a 1920s style vintage beige maxi dress and looked girly and elegant. The cream colour complemented her tan while the colour detail lifted the look and made it more cheerful. She looked like an old-fashioned Hollywood movie starlet rather than someone who used to be on Geordie Shore, she’s doing well!
The Coronation Street star may have lost out to Eastenders but she had a winning outfit on with her white midi dress and pretty beige court shoes. If you have legs likes hers, you just have to get them out don’t you? Also, as we are starting to see more sunny weather and spring is coming, now is the time to wear white.
Ferne’s been popping up on several TV shows since her successful stint in the I’m A Celeb jungle so she’s feeling confident. You can tell this by what she’s wearing as a dress with fringe detail is a brave choice. She totally pulls it off as she walks with attitude. The strappy black heeled sandals finish off the look perfectly, giving her extra height and more reason to feel fabulous when she walks into the room.
She knew that she was going to be in the same building as her ex Pete Wicks, so Megan had to look (and act) strong. If you feel the part, you can be braver and walk around with more attitude. Megan did just that in a black suit with black heeled sandals. What do you think?
The Coronation Street actress turned heads in a floral multi-colour maxi dress. It’s floaty, feminine and full of the joys of spring. If you want to get attention without flashing too much flesh, this is a classy way to do it.
Emma looked bold and beautiful in a multi-coloured jumpsuit and she must be doing something right as she won two awards – best radio presenter and one for her role on the Heart Breakfast Show. She’s no longer just a former Spice Girl as she’s proved to herself and her peers and colleagues that she has talent on the radio. That’s true girl power!
