From Judi Dench to Michaela Coel, amazing fashion looks from the vintage at the Bafta Television Awards
The Bafta Television Awards are approaching quickly.
The event, which will be hosted by Richard Ayoade and will feature a performance by Olly Alexander as well as appearances by Jodie Comer, Billie Piper, Maya Jama, Paul Mescal, and others, will take place on June 6th.
The annual event, which began in 1955, has long been a chance for celebrities to indulge in some glitz and glam – something Judi Dench is well-versed in…
Dench was the picture of elegance in a black turtleneck dress when she won a Bafta for her role in A Fine Romance in March 1982.
We won’t bore you with too many photos from the 1990s because successful red carpet moments were few and far between. Carol Vorderman in 2003, wearing a dress with a beaded bodice, taffeta skirt, floral embellishments on the back, and a lengthy train for a flavor of the times.
Fast forward to 2014, and fashion was once again beginning to warm up. Helena Bonham Carter looked the definition of cool in a strapless black dress and massive sunglasses.
Gemma Chan is a true style icon who is constantly one step ahead of the pack. In 2014, she wore a stunning lemon antique gown with a beaded bodice and a drop waist.
Michaela Coel wore a colorful kente fabric outfit created by her mother, which was one of the top looks from the 2016 Oscars.
Agyness Deyn‘s chiffon Molly Goddard dress from 2017 isn’t the brightest or most uplifting look on the list, but we can’t help but admire it. It has a strong Miss Havisham and Morticia Addams vibe to it.
Eleanor Tomlinson wore a sequined, floral Naeem Khan dress with a deep V on the red carpet in 2017 – a timeless ensemble that will undoubtedly stand the test of time.
Thandiwe Newton is always a show-stopper on the red carpet, as evidenced by her appearance in a vivid floral gown by Richard Quinn in 2018.
All of the previous awards seems to have served as a warm-up for 2019, which promises to be a year of big names and even bigger costumes. Lolly Adefope is a comedian and actor. (This is a brief piece.)
