The BAFTA TV Awards are a big deal as they’re voted for by the industry. The National TV Awards are chosen by the public, which is great for ratings, but being picked as the best by the TV industry bosses is better for long-lasting career success. Everyone’s on the edge of their seats, praying to win!
There are awards for all types of TV shows from soaps to sports to current affairs so we get to see a diverse range of celebs walk the red carpet outside the Royal Festival Hall on London’s Southbank. Their TV shows are all very different but one thing the stars have in common is they’ve dressed to get noticed. After the awards are over, networking takes place and looking good gives the stars the confidence to mingle – just like us!
These 10 celebrities looked especially lovely, giving us some inspiration about what colours and shapes really stand out when everyone’s dressed to impress:
Holly was there to present an award for Best TV Moment but she would have won Best Fashion Moment in her mint green maxi dress. The colour looks beautiful with her blonde hair and bronzed skin and its the ideal time of year to wear pastels. This dress is perfect for summer weddings and proms.
The Poldark actress looked super glam in a silver maxi dress, which sparkled as she walked down the red carpet. A metallic dress will always get us noticed and show that we’re ready to party.
It’s inspiring to see how well Scarlett has done since leaving Gogglebox. Now a TV presenter in her own right, she looked sleek and chic in a black lace midi dress. Just look at her smile. She’s hot and she knows it!
Laura looked super summery in her strapless multicolour maxi dress, which was bright and cheerful. Laura’s got a lovely figure and this dress shows off her slender waist without flashing too much flesh, making her look classy.
The Strictly Come Dancing host has an amazing wardrobe of maxi dresses which we see every single week when the TV series is on, so she went for a gorgeous beige midi dress for the awards do. The colour complements her skin, making her look bronzed and dewy and the pencil shape shows off her curves. Tess always gets it right when it comes to dresses.
Similar to Eleanor Tomlinson, Thandie shows that metallics never fail to make an impact. The Line Of Duty star is now used to awards ceremonies after being Oscar-nominated this year and she knows what she’s doing when it comes to dressing up by now. What do you think of this simple silver look?
Anna’s in a new BBC drama called Broken alongside veteran actor Sean Bean and she’s dressing to let us all know she’s back! Her monochrome dress is so feminine that she looks doll-like and elegant. The vintage lace detail adds to the prettiness – she looks stunning.
If a navy blue maxi dress wasn’t glam enough in its own right then the Peaky Blinders actress added sequins to the mix. These sequins caught the photographers’ flashbulbs and would also look brilliant on a dance floor. Sequins aren’t just for Christmas, they make us in the mood to party all year round!
It was impossible to miss Ella Eyre as in her bright pink prom dress. If you’re a girly girl and you want to wear pink, do it proudly and with attitude and you’ll impress everyone with your style. In this dress, Ella’s setting trends, not following fashion and you just can’t beat a bit of pink, can you?
TV presenter Katie Piper had a real vampy edge in her full black strapless dress with purple lipstick. The way the dress flares out is truly eye catching but how you wear hair and make-up in a dress like this transforms it. If she’d done her hair in a slicked back bun this dress would have looked formal but with her messy hair and statement make-up, she gives it a rock chick vibe and looks sensational.
Who do you think stood out the most?
