Soap Awards: carnage on the red carpet

It’s tremendously difficult to compete with The Cannes Film Festival, however, with that said the ‘celebrities’ who attended The British Soap Awards – which was held yesterday evening – could have at least tried.

I am usually not one to bitch, BUT, apart from a sprinkling of starlets this was indeed one of the worst dressed red carpet events I have reported on in years.

Not wanting to be mean ill at least be as polite as I can about the celebrities who have quite not hit the fashion high-notes. Shobna Gulati (Sunita in Coronation Street) opted to be seen in a silk mustard corseted dress with frou frou prom skirt, teamed with miniature leather jacket and fuchsia pink shoes. Either she got dressed in the cabin shop in the dark or Dev himself must have had something to do with this.

Following up closely behind was a girl I have never even heard of – but clearly some points for trying; Charlie Clemmow. illuminating up the red carpet with her pillar box red wavy hair and a dog collar dress to match (I’m not talking church here either), this unknown starlet from TV drama Doctors could potentially be the worst, if it wasn’t for my favourite-worst dressed celeb pair, part-time lesbian lovers Brooke Vincent and Sacha Parkinsion (Coronation Street’s Rosie Webster and Sian Powers). Their ‘no carbs before Marbs’ motto has clearly paid off as the girls are looking slim, and whilst Sacha is almost polished to perfection (minus the mint green clutch), Brooke looks like she has just whacked her hair in a bun from Marbella beach and dragged out an old cut-up dress with a pair of random ‘dancer’ heels. I hear TOWIE calling…

Looking fabulous though, and clearly deserving recognition was Sarah Jayne Dunn (HollyOaks) in a gorgeous fuchsia on-trend block colour dress, with nipped in waist and matching nude accessories; newcomer Sophie Powles (Emmerdale) also wowed in an outfit only Taylor Momsem could rival her in, and of course, Michelle Keegan, who has retained her title of Sexiest Female for the third year in a row, looked fabulous in a golden heart-shaped strapless gown with smokey eyes and minimal jewellery.

To be fair there were literally too many bad choices to choose from but for hideous crimes against fashion the above aforementioned should indeed be outed, but girls remember, I would make myself available should you consider going into Fashion AA before next year…
