After last year’s virtual ceremony, the Bafta TV awards’ red carpet is back for 2021– and its better than ever.
To say tonight’s Bafta TV awards are going to be a pretty big deal would be an understatement.
Not only has it been a big year for TV – the small screen has provided some much-needed distraction from everything that’s happened over the last 12 months – but after a year of virtual ceremonies, today’s (6 June) Bafta awards will see many of TV’s biggest names coming together in one place to celebrate a landmark year.
And of course, this means there will be plenty of major fashion moments to unpick, too.
Although you’ll have to wait until 7pm this evening to watch the awards on BBC One, the red carpet live event is already well underway.
And with the likes of Michaela Coel, Lydia West, Olly Alexander, Cush Jumbo and many more appearing on stage throughout the evening, there’s plenty of sartorial inspiration to be found.
Here’s our pick of just some of the best red carpet outfits from the 2021 Bafta TV awards so far.
