2013 National Television Awards Red Carpet Round Up

National Television Awards 2013

Here are the rest of the looks from last night’s 2013 National Television Awards, held at the O2 Arena in London.

Melanie Sykes: The TV presenter wore a shimmering silver one-shoulder gown, styling her look with an elegant updo and blue clutch.

Samia Ghadie: The ‘Coronation Street’ actress is so much better than this Herve Leger dress is suggesting. Samia wears this dress after Nicki Minaj.

Brook Vincent: Opting for a sleek black lace strapless gown, the ‘Coronation Street’ actress styled her frock with an Alexander McQueen clutch. I don’t think that cuff, which looks more like a sweatband, was needed.

Michelle Keegan: There’s something about Michelle’s snake-print mermaid gown which I find aging and dated. She’s had much better red carpet moments.

Jamelia: The singer selected a mint lace embellished gown, which she accessorized with oversized cocktail rings. The gown is stunning, but I hate those tacky silver glitter heels. They bring the look down so many levels.

Tulisa Contostavlos: Trying way too hard, the X Factor judge tried to be graceful, wearing a white plunging dress with a cascading detail from the hip, but ended up looking like an extra from The Only Way Is Essex.

Sophie McShera: The ‘Downton Abbey’ star didn’t wear a big puffy ballgown: instead she donned a black-and-gold three-quarter-sleeve dress paired with tights and black calf-hair booties. Nice if you are hanging out with your mates – not so much for an awards do.

Claire Cooper: The Hollyoaks actress is one of the few who managed to nail refined glamour at this event. Her shimmering one-shoulder nude gown was given the dark lip treatment, with a white clutch accessorizing her look.

Jennie McAlpine: Largely known simply as Fizz, the curly-red-haired ‘Coronation Street’ actress smoothed out her signature tresses while donning a berry-coloured Emilio Pucci panel lace dress, shunning the full-length gowns as sported by her co-stars. I love the colour-coordinated berry lip colour, but I’m not too crazy about the taupe pumps.

    Starting from the top:
    I think Samia wore it better than Nicki, because it looks the way it should on her. The pink looked red on Nicki, and I just did not like it.
    Michelle Keegan’s dress was the perfect shape for her, but that snake skin was completely outdated.
    Tulisa just looks uncomfortable and awkward.
    And I give Claire Cooper an A++!

    Claire looks the best.

    I actually like Samia’s Herve Lager bandage dress. There was a time when bandage dresses were all you saw on the red carpet, but it has been a while. I don’t think it right for an awards show red carpet, though. Except a funky awards show where you can get away with a dress like that.

    This was one weak red carpet with only a handful of standouts. I saw a picture of Tulisa on the Daily Mail site and you could see her spanx undergarments…sigh!!! I used to dislike the word “chav” but it describes her style to a T. She needs to hire the stylist from X Factor because she looked much better then.

    Not liking none of these looks.

    I do not know this Jennie McAlpine, but I do know that she looks like a perfect mix between Tina Fey and Adele.

    Claire Cooper looks outstanding

    I like Brook’s dress. Does anyone know where it’s from?

    I love Michelle Keegans hairstyle. Who did her hair and where can I get mine done the same?

    The good: Claire (graded on a curve)
    The middling: Melanie (ill-fitted), Brook (hate the cuff), Michelle (needed an updo and better fabric), Tulisa (too lowcut), and Sophie (too casual)
    The blah: Jennie, Jamila, and Samia

    Claire Cooper is my favourite of the bunch.

    I think Sophie McShera’s dress is from Ted Baker and Nikki Reed wore it last year.

      Clair Cooper the best among them!
