I have to confess I was tempted to give it a miss and stay in to watch the National Television Awards, I find it hard to resist a look at celebrity glamour, especially from the more mature attendee's, so here is my round up of "yeh" and "neh" looks worn by the over 40's at last nights event.
Carol leaves me speechless, yet again, when it comes to her red carpet looks. Beautiful dress but more suited to a bride, and a bride with a somewhat smaller bust at that! Even if you have great "assets" at the age of 51, nobody actually wants to see your tits heaving out of your frock in my opinion. Verdict: I would die for your figure Carol, but not your wardrobe.
Tossing the Kyber for the Scottish contingent was the darling Lorraine Kelly. I know it was Burns Night but seriously Lozza, what the hell? Verdict: Being patriotic is fine but tartan heels or a clutch would have looked far more chic.
Elle McPherson looked absolutely stunning in my opinion and rarely puts a foot wrong in the glamour stakes. Verdict: Hair is a tad too severe for my liking but totally adore everything else.
Bringing a touch of Hollywood Glamour to the event was Coronation Street's resident landlady, Michelle Collins looking utterly stunning in Merabi by Nadine.
Pale blush shades were seen in abundance at last weeks Golden Globes and last night proved that this popular and flattering colour choice will no doubt continue throughout awards season. Verdict: If I could choose any celebrities outfit to borrow for a red carpet event, it would be Michelle's.
Do you think the over 40's gave the younger celebrities a run for their money? Who was your best dressed on the night?
