  • All the fashion from the Bafta TV Awards

    Although Britain’s small screen stars aren’t always renowned for their sartorial highs, it was a surprisingly stylish affair at last night’s Bafta TV awards.  

    Topping the trend report, and red was the evening’s hottest hue.

    Leading the pack was newly wed Patsy Kensit, in a scarlet gown, that may have blended into the red carpet, but stood out from the crowd due to its dramatic mermaid shape and pleated train.


    Others that were ravishing in red included Michelle Ryan, who was every inch her Bionic Woman alter ego, flaunting her curves in a sizzling floor-skimming scarlet dress, and Louise Redknapp joined the line-up in a Grecian style gown.

    If they weren’t in the red, then blues were ruling the fashion stakes.

    Proving pregnancy doesn’t have to get in the way of style, Tess Daly epitomised maternity chic in a thigh-skimming navy ruffle dress, while Davina McCall was demure in a draped royal blue maxi, and Jenni Falconer opted for a plunging teal number

    Bringing a spot of Hollywood glamour to the capital’s awards, Mischa Barton covered up in a billowing Osman Yousefzada inky blue maxi dress, with intricate embellished gold neckline.

    Away from the blue crew, and proving the LBD can still pack a punch on the red carpet, one of our favourite looks came courtesy of actress Jaime Winstone. The actress wowed in a sophisticated black dress, with bejewelled flower embellishments.

    Alexa Chung can always be relied upon to steal the show stylistically, and didn’t disappoint. Only she could get us yearning for a handbag in the shape of a cat (note the accessorising), and we love her Luella autumn/winter ’09 floral minidress and Mary Jane platforms.

    As for up-and-coming stylistas and Skins stars Hannah Murray and Kaya Scodelario proved their fashion credentials, stepping out in co-ordinating Colette Dinnigan dazzling minidresses. Style stars in the making? Lets hope so.
