The following is going to bit of a “hit or miss” piece for you guys. Very Marmite, in fact.
I know it’s uncool, but I felt compelled to watch this week’s National Television Awards 2019. Purely for Red Carpet fashion “research”, of course.
From A(ish) to Z listers, TV stars were out in force, wearing (or attempting to wear) their versions of Oscars costumes. From Love Islanders to soap stars and The GC, to presenters, celebs and models, everyone was out at London’s O2 Arena. But not everyone nailed their looks.
Here is my round-up of last night’s winners and losers.
Holly Willoughby rarely puts a well-heeled toe out of line, and her stunning pink and black polka dot gown was no exception. Whilst I’m a little tired of seeing her everywhere at the moment, she presented herself perfectly, with hair in a chic “up” do, showing off the gown by Iris Serban.
Meanwhile Emily Atack looked a far cry from her jungle self as she wowed in a black Zeynep Kartal gown with a high leg slit. Love her.
Vicky Pattison went for a fitted coral dress that showed off her slim figure, although Coral should be restricted to summer only. It doesn’t work in sub-zero January.
Meanwhile, Love Island host Caroline Flackwent for a bold orange playsuit by Hasan Hejaziwith a long cape with pink satin lining, which she paired with leopard print heels. This was probably my winner of the night. I’ve contemplated putting this item onto the plastic, but it comes in at £265. In reality, I’m not sure I’d wear it enough to justify the price tag.
On the subject of capes, Emma Willis looked effortlessly chic in this caped dream.
I liked Michelle Keegan’s white pompom dress too – it was quirky. Equally enchanting was Victoria Secrets model Leomie Anderson’s’s barely-there yellow dress, which showcased those legs.
More winners, including THE GC.
Another trend was the super low-neck lines, basically revealing almost all of the chest and cleavage. Of course, this only works if you are an A cup and have tit tape to hold up the goods. Better carry a spare roll of tape.
Bizarrely, emerald green seemed to be the most popular colour of the night, which I’m not feeling at all. It’s dated and makes anyone look middle aged, even if a teen.
Here are the losers on the night. Please don’t take it personally – I blame the stylists.
