The BAFTA TV Awards are here and unlike other recent award ceremonies, the hotly anticipated event actually happened IRL. Dressed to impress, the stars took this opportunity to undergo a serious glow up, impressing us with many major hair and make-up moments.

Michaela Coel, winner of Best Actress for her role in_I May Destroy You_, ruled the runway with her slicked back bob and radiant complexion. Billie Piper gave us all nostalgia with her 90s half-up ‘do that featured two strands teased out as well as silky black scrunchie. Always one to be adventurous in the beauty department, Nicola Coughlan turned heads in her bright orange frock accompanied with a matte blue eyeshadow.
