Fashion Police: BAFTA TV Awards

From the good, the bad and the ugly...Freya Drohan gives her style verdicts from the BAFTA TV Awards

British TV's most glamorous night of the year brings out the best (and worst) in star style.

From the fashion winners to losers, we count the most memorable looks from last night's red carpet.

 

Sophie Ellis Bextor proved that black can still be interesting with her intricately embroidered dress. She vamped things up with a smokey eye and a quirky milk-maid braid.

With her impeccable figure, Naomi Campbell defied her age in a dove grey Grecian gown with extreme cut outs. Would have liked to see her wearing more adventurous accessories.

I think Julie Walters looks demure and age appropriate; although I’m not a fan of the diamantés, the shapeless dress is flattering on her petite figure.

A tame choice for fashion forward Laura Whitmore, however she looks flawless. Love her patent white clutch and knuckle duster bling.

I am a fan of this pared back look on Rochelle Humes. Leaving The Saturdays, bandage dresses and big hair at home, the new mum looks elegant in  this monochrome gown.

Louise Redknapp missed the boat on this one. I actually questioned whether she was pregnant- the ill-fitting pleated gown did nothing for her and dodgy accessorising let her down even more.

Amanda Byram looks like a teenager’s Debs dream. Between the drop down earrings, embellishment, sequin clutch and diamond bangles; it’s bling overkill.

While Samia Ghadie looks radiant, the mesh panels, embellished neckline and side-swept hairdo are dated and this outfit is just plain boring.

Between her dewy makeup and Julien MacDonald gown, Millie Mackintosh is glowing. Not many people can pull off a knitted dress, but with a sleek ponytail and statement lip Millie shows off her style credentials.

In lace body-con and chiffon train, Michelle Collins has strayed into tacky territory. Black nails, heavy makeup and shoes the exact same buttermilk shade of her dress didn’t help.
