Last night marked Britain's National Television Awards at London's Royal Albert Hall, but you'd be forgiven for thinking you were watching the gowns portion of a beauty pageant, what with so many boobs, legs, sparkles and metallics on display. In fact, I was hard-pressed to decide just who amongst the TV starlets present would have won this particular round, so evenly matched were the contestants. Cast your metaphorical vote, after the jump!

The Good:

According to today's Times we're having a 1978 moment. Is that why I'm so drawn to Claire Cooper's column?

I didn't know I could like tangerine so much; Tess Daly has made me a believer!


Am I getting a little sick of this bandage dress? Sure. But Rachel Stevens rocks it.

Yes, Emma Rigby's confection is totally ridiculous. But it's so fun!

The Bad:


Miss Amanda Holden in pink...

Miss Dannii Minogue in brocade...


Miss Camilla Dallerup in gold...

Miss Holly Willoughby in silver...


Miss Denise Van Outen in black...

And Miss Nicolette Sheridan in red!
