To say last night’s Bafta TV awards were a pretty big deal would be an understatement.
Not only has the last year been a big one for TV – the small screen has provided some much-needed distraction from everything that’s happened over the last 12 months – but after a year of virtual ceremonies, yesterday’s Bafta awards saw many of TV’s biggest names coming together in one place to celebrate a landmark year.
Here’s our pick of just some of the best red carpet outfits from the 2021 Bafta TV awards.
TV and radio presenter Vick Hope, who co-hosted the Bafta red carpet alongside Stacey Dooley, opted for a glamorous black Bevsa dress which she paired with a collection of gold rings, necklaces and hair cuffs.
Stacey Dooley paired her ruched satin dress from Halpern with a pair of black stilettos adorned with a sparkling square detail.
Olly Alexander debuted two incredible looks at the awards show; first, a matching yellow snake-effect jacket and trouser combo (as pictured above) to perform his hit song Starstruck, and later, a red carpet look from Ludovid de Saint Sernin’s AW 2021 collection.
