The BAFTA TV awards may not have quite the same status in style terms as its film equivalent, but that didn't seem to matter to the event's attendees with a no holds barred approach to red carpet glamour.

The result was a rather mixed affair; black tie is a tricky look to get right at the best of times and all too easy to get wrong.

Starting on a positive note - Claudia Winkleman nailed the classic combo of black and white in a monochrome strapless beaded gown by Chanel. Likewise Anna Friel's Osman dress is a masterclass in how to wear white on a formal occasion without straying into bridal territory.

 

Poldark fans will not have let the presence of the series' leading ladies go unnoticed - Eleanor Tomlinson who plays Demelza would not have looked out of place at a Hollywood awards ceremony in an exquisite feathered Ralph Lauren gown. Heida Reed who plays Elizabeth also upped the stakes in a slinky silk number also by the American designer.

In the more unfortunate category of worst dressed was many of the attendees who chose to continue with the 'dare to bare' theme that dominated the Met Gala last week.

Rochelle Humes chose a sheer lace overlay black gown that revealed cheeky flashes of flesh. Made in Chelsea's Rosie Fortescue opted for a silver gown by Julien Macdonald that came with plunging neckline that left plenty of skin on show.

A tuxedo look on Davina McCall could have been great but for the choice of cropped jacket that made the whole ensemble seem more costume then couture.
