What She Wears: TV Now Awards

Soap lovers, tune in.

The Walkers TV Now Awards took place on Saturday night 22nd May at the Mansion House, Dublin. They are being televised on TV3 tonight, Monday 24th May.

Presented by model Vivienne Connolly, who wore a canary yellow dress which was custom designed by my latest obsession – Studio 54 in Blackrock.

For some reason, when it comes to soap awards that take place in the UK, nominees go for cocktail length and short dresses, as opposed to full length dresses – which is usually the norm for the red carpet.

The trend obviously made it’s way across the pond because on Saturday, there were many attendees including Irish stars Leigh Arnold, Roseanna Davison and Kathryn Thomas, wearing short or knee length dresses.

I have to say that I prefer to see full length gowns on the red carpet.

Jedward turned up as well to provide the entertainment with hundreds of fans queuing up to catch a glimpse outside the Mansion House.

My favourite looks from the Tv Now Awards

Karen Koster

Karen Koster pulls off this long, white Grecian look with aplomb while Lorraine Keane was another attendee to arrive in a long white gown.

Michelle Heaton Tv Now Awards

Michelle Heaton – I’m normally not a huge fan of her style, but think that this red dress looks stunning on her and she’s certainly looking more toned than ever. The wedding diet must be going well.

Kathryn Thomas Tv Now Awards

Kathryn Thomas looks chic and elegant in this little red dress paired with a fab pair of nude shoes. Thomas looked the part as she scooped the Favourite Female TV Presenter award.

What do you think of the style? Or was this year’s TV Now awards lacking in style?

Check out more pictures in the gallery.
