BAFTA 2016 style special: what the stars wore on the red carpet

Last night’s BAFTAs celebrated the best of British TV talent. Hosted by the inimitable Graham Norton at Royal Festival Hall, the awards recognised the UK’s top programmes.

BBC Two’s adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s novel, Wolf Hall, picked up the gong for Best Drama, while Strictly Come Dancing fought off competition from Britain’s Got Talent to take Best Entertainment programme. Doctor Foster star Suranne Jones won Best Actress for her part in the drama, and Mark Rylance won Best Actor for his role in Wolf Hall.

We noticed two distinct colour schemes on the red carpet – and they just happen to coordinate with the True Brit London goodies in your April and May boxes. (So feel free to pop on a ballgown next time you paint your nails…)

A bevy of leading ladies opted for gowns in sophisticated shades of grey. Kara Tointon chose a pleated dove grey gown by Amanda Wakely, featuring a striking plunging neckline. BGT’s Amanda Holden wore a dramatic beaded dress with a statement cape by Tony Ward Couture. TOWIE’s Lucy Mecklenburgh’s prom inspired gown was grey and lilac with a foiled floral pattern.

Pink ladies

There was also plenty of pink on the red carpet last night. TV presenter Angela Scanlon wore our favourite outfit of the night – a black and pink midi dress by Spanish designer Emilio de la Morena. Olivier award-winning Eleanor Worthington Cox has come a long way since Matilda the musical. Her blush pink gown brought some old-school Hollywood glamour to the night. Game of Throne’s Maisie Williams kept it fun in a short and chic Antonio Berardi dress with plenty of sequins.

Our red carpet recap shows the nail polishes in your April and May boxes are totally on trend – we wonder where they got the inspiration from?! (*who, us?*) Let us know how you’ll be wearing yours in the comments!
