Who wore what (and WTF?) at the Laurence Olivier Awards.

BEST: Rose Leslie

The British actress nails it in this semi-sheer red floor length gown. Not to mention her best accessory - boyfriend Kit Harrington.

BEST: Ruth Wilson

Ruth looks impossibly ethereal in this nude embellished gown.

BEST: Amanda Holden

The tv presenter is a vision in this canary yellow statement number.

BEST: Ophelia Lovibond

This flowing gown for the win.

WORST: Preeya Kalidas

The top and skirt are perfection, but the oversized belt and platform shoes look too much like she's an extra in an early noughties teen movie.

BEST: Phoebe Fox

The actress looks effortlessly elegant in this Grecian-style pale pink dress.

WORST: Clare Foster

The neckline has just plunged just an inch too far, but otherwise this is a winning look.

WORST: Noma Dumezweni

Points for originality, but this multi-layered dress is too bright and busy.

BEST: Billie Piper

This dramatic black dress is slightly jarring with the blinding sunshine of the day, but it will go down as a classic.

BEST: Amber Riley

The Dreamgirls stage star does the red carpet her own way and it works.

BEST: Tracy-Ann Oberman

A flawless look for the British actress. Bravo.

WORST: Louise Redknapp

This wallpaper print distracts from Louise's on-point-as-always hair and makeup.

BEST: Carley Stenson

Carley is proof you can still maintain your edge without compromising on elegance.
