The 21st National Television Awards toasted the greatest shows and personalities of the television world for the past year on 20 January. While the anticipation surrounded who would take home the coveted awards, all eyes were on the red carpet arrivals to see what incredible creations the hopefuls would be stepping out in.

Unlike the more subdued offerings at other British awards such as the Bafta TV awards, the NTA's has a long standing reputation for dressing to impress and there was a smorgasbord of colour, embellishment and cut-outs that the guests braved the chilly temperatures in.

The Best

Emma Willis and Suranne Jones led the best dressed women of the night and they made maternity outfits look incredibly fashionable. Willis looked incredible in Stella McCartney's embroidered satin dress with a silk satin Wilbur and Gussie clutch, while Jones went for a more classic look in Isabelle Oliver.

Suiting was also another trend on the red carpet with Laura Jackson winning our vote in an all white draped ensemble with wide leg cropped trousers by Tibi while Charlotte Beaumont opted for a more classic tuxedo look layered over a cropped top with vibrant red clutch.

The Worst

There were a few fashion misses, though, with Jessica Fox from Hollyoaks not quite getting it right with her oversized pinstripe suiting, while the likes of Jorgie Porter took the "more is more" idea a little too far combining lurex, sheer, studs and gothic make up to create a rather overwhelming look.

The Brides

Then there was the bridal contingency. White was a big hit for the NTAs red carpet, with a number of guests looking a little like lost brides on their way in. Kara Tointon looked ready to walk up the aisle in her lace applique ivory gown and up do, although she was hugely overshadowed by the ornate and regal attire of Lady Colin Campbell who accessorised her tulle gown with full gloves and tiara.
