2017 BAFTA Television Awards Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on May 16, 2017

Darlings, a metric shit-tonne of Britlebrities showed up for the BAFTA TV awards and we’ve narrowed down the attendees to all the people you’ve heard of! Wasn’t that kind of us? Always thinking of others, that’s T Lo.

Anyway, let’s criticize their efforts, the way God intended.


Benedict Cumberbatch

Enh. It’s fine. This is pretty much as formal an event as the Oscars and Emmys, so his options were fairly limited. Gets the job done.


Claire Foy in Fendi

Hmm. While we think she’s the type who should stick to simpler styles, we suspect she can work the hell out of fussy looks if they’re the right kind. This? Not the right kind. She basically looks like she’s wearing two dresses, one of which is totally sheer. Also: the sleeves are weirdly fuzzy.



Eleanor Tomlinson in Naeem Khan

This is absolutely stunning. It’s rare to see a redhead working this kind of color story on the red carpet, but it really does look amazing on her.


Joan Collins

Bow down, bitches. And don’t get up until she tells you to.



Joanna Lumley in Alexander McQueen

Love her and love this look, but we’re always a little surprised at her mugging and vamping on the red carpet. She knows how to model and set clothes off for pictures, so we figure she must be a bit overwhelmed by everything and just resorts to Patsy Stone-ing it up.



Jodie Comer in Alberta Ferretti

Simple, but very pretty. It makes a quiet statement.



Matt Smith

Yeah, that’ll do.



Thandie Newton in Vivienne Westwood

Lovely. It’s a bit strange to see her in something so low-key and conventional, considering her predilection for going cray on the red carpet. Still, we can’t say it’s not working.



Tuppence Middleton in Erdem

Could’ve been perfect if the asymmetric sleeve situation had been avoided. And she’d picked a different clutch. And she wasn’t sporting running-errands hair.


Victoria Hamilton

Queen Mum goes glam. She must be thrilled to get her diva on after a full season of frumpiness on The Crown. It’s a great look, if just a bit snug.
