Celebs bite back at newspaper’s ‘worst-dressed’ Baftas list

Time to stop the shaming...

| Updated:

It’s long been common practice for newspapers and magazines to feature best and worst-dressed articles from big showbiz events, featuring pictures of celebs and critiques of their attire by journalists.

Depending on the title, the criticism will be fairly tame, or downright nasty.

Whichever, there’s no place in 2019 for people being slated in the national press for their appearance at a work event.

Or at least there shouldn’t be.

Celebs for sure have had enough of being subjected to what amounts to personal insults, and they are fighting back.

Leading the charge is Nicola Thorp, Coronation Street actress and feminist activist, who was so aggrieved after last year’s British Soap Awards, she wrote an article on why it’s so out of order.

After she shared a link again today, following last night’s Baftas, and the predictable fashion articles, other stars piled in to lend their support.

Annie Wallace, of Hollyoaks fame, revealed she had once been shamed for her outfit.

Derry Girls star Nicola Coughlan, who was targeted by one article suggesting her dress wasn’t flattering, posted a video basically sticking two fingers up.

Fellow Northern Irish actress Bronagh Waugh saluted her.
