British Academy Television Awards 2013 Menswear Round Up

British Academy Television Awards 2013 Menswear

There were also many bespoke-suit-wearing blokes who took to the red carpet on Sunday evening for the British Academy Television Awards 2013, held at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Jamie Redknapp: We of course have to start with the very handsome Jamie, who joined his beautiful wife Louise at this event. The former footballer, who still retains his boyish good looks, wore a Thom Sweeney bespoke midnight blue mohair three-piece suit featuring a shawl lapel, with a white dress shirt and a bow tie. You may remember that Luke Evans wore a suit by the same designer with a similar low-cut waistcoat to the ‘Fast & Furious 6’ world premiere last week.

Dermot O’Leary: Opting for a much smaller bow tie, Dermot O’Leary selected a two-piece Rake midnight-blue suit with a black satin shawl collar, styled with a white dress shirt and white pocket square.

Damien Lewis: The actor, who joined his wife Helen McCrory on the red carpet, wore a two-button suit with slim-fit pants from his go-to brand Burberry. Unlike some of the guys, who selected white pocket squares at this event, Damien opted for black.

British Academy Television Awards 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the looks from the British Academy Television Awards 2013 held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday.

Millie Mackintosh: Opting to steal the limelight from the celebs at this event, the reality TV star wore a daring Sass & Bide Fall 2013 strapless gown with a plunging sweetheart neckline, gold-plated accent, keyhole cut-out and thigh-high slit. Gold cuffs, a Swarovski clutch and black strappy heels completed her look. If stealing the limelight was her intention, I would say this was mission accomplished.

Holly Willoughby: I love Holly’s red Valentino one-shoulder gown; however, her black platform heels are a huge letdown. They are so clunky and heavy in comparison to the rest of her look. She can do – and has done – much better.

Jessica Hynes: This Vivienne Westwood gown was one of my favourites on the night. The black silk gown, with a ruched pale-pink chiffon-trimmed neckline, draped detail at the back and draped over-the-shoulder detail, gives her a beautiful silhouette. Allowing the gown to shine by just adding nude pumps was the perfect way to style this look.

Tess Daley In Alberta Ferretti – British Academy Television Awards 2013

Tess Daley In Alberta Ferretti - British Academy Television Awards 2013

Tess Daley opted for quite a dramatic look on the red carpet for the British Academy Television Awards 2013 held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday.

So much so that I didn’t recognise the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ host in her Alberta Ferretti Fall 2013 black gown, with art deco beading on a sheer bodice and a black sweeping skirt with chiffon layers.

I love the glam Hollywood styling; however, the lining brings down the look for me.

I’m not saying that the gown shouldn’t have been lined; I just wish it was closer to her skin colour so as not to provide such a stark contrast. As presented, Tess’s gown has lost most of the runway allure.

Laura Whitmore joined a host of stars who took to the red carpet for the British Academy Television Awards 2013 held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday evening.

The Irish TV presenter opted for a Marina Qureshi and Sophia Kah Fall 2013 combo for her red carpet look.

Her Marina Qureshi black fitted top was teamed with a black-and-gold Sophia Kah maxi skirt, which inspired the black-and-gold styling of this look.

Complementary jewels, a black-and-gold Giuseppe Zanotti clutch, black-and-gold nails and ear bling accessorized her look to perfection. However, the wet weather conditions sadly made her hair look a bit limp.

Louise Redknapp also took to the red carpet for the British Academy Television Awards 2013 held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday evening with her handsome hubby Jamie Redknapp.

The TV presenter and co-founder of the new cosmetic line ‘Wild About Beauty’ opted for an all-lace look for her red carpet look.

She wore a nude lace Victoria Beckham Denim top with a high-waisted black Dolce & Gabbana lace maxi skirt.

The delicate, feminine look was effortlessly styled with a Charlotte Olympia clear clutch with a black pouch, onyx earrings and a gold ring.

Smoky eyes and a braided updo, which was a smart choice on a cold, wet and windy evening, completed her look.

After Kara’s overworked look, this is so much more refreshing.

Kara Tointon In Dennis Basso – British Academy Television Awards 2013

Kara Tointon joined Sienna Miller on the red carpet at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday evening for the British Academy Television Awards 2013.

The former Eastenders actress, who reinvented herself as a West End girl, looked very graceful wearing a Dennis Basso Spring 2013 gown.

Her strapless gown with embroidered details also features asymmetrical fringed accents applied randomly on the skirt.

The fringed details do not work for me. They overwork a fairly simple look and the applications just don’t make any sense.

A 40s updo, onyx earrings and flawless makeup completed her look.

Was this gown overworked for you?

Sienna Miller In Matthew Williamson – British Academy Television Awards 2013

Sienna Miller In Matthew Williamson - British Academy Television Awards 2013

After her return to the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala in New York City last Monday, Sienna Miller was back on home soil attending the British Academy Television Awards 2013 held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday evening.

The British actress wore a British designer, donning a light-blue organza embroidered box-pleat long-sleeved dress from Matthew Williamson’s Fall 2013 collection.

Sienna’s Fall dress in a summery hue added a ray of sunshine to the rain-soaked event.

She accessorized her look with a Charlotte Olympia ‘Pandora’ clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Malabar Hill’ pumps with studded accents.

The sweet, innocent vibe she’s giving off with the contrasting studded pumps is an interesting one; however, I wish the pumps were in a colour other than grey.

A simple updo and silver jewels completed her look.

BAFTA Television Awards 2012

We’ve seen Amy Childs and Melissa George; here are the rest of the attendees at the Arqiva BAFTA Television Awards 2012, which took place at the Royal Festival Hall in London yesterday evening.

Davina McCall: It’s always good to see the ‘Million Pound Drop’ TV presenter not wearing black. On this occasion she wore a Michael Kors belted zebra-print dress from the Spring 2012 collection. I love the pop of hot pink via her Jimmy Choo heels. If this is looking familiar, that’s because Debra Messing wore the same dress recently.

Emilia Fox: The actress looked breathtaking wearing a stunning frock she picked up from William Vintage. The nude piece with a textured top and satin belted full skirt is the stuff movie stars are made of. Just a shame the skirt is so creased. The sweeping updo and statement earrings add to the drama of this exquisite look.

Louise Redknapp: Never have a seen a Gucci dress look so drab. What happened to Louise? She used to be so stylish. This Spring 2012 strapless drop waist dress does nothing for her. She styled the look with a black satin clutch and Gucci ‘Delphine’ sandals from the same collection completed the look.
