We love our soaps, our soap stars and the British Soap Awards.
But sometimes the styles paraded on the red carpets are a little questionable.
The Hollyoaks girls are particularly under the spotlight – with the cast being so young their tend to be the most, let’s say, experimental with their fashion choices.
This can sometimes mean flashing a bit too much flesh for the liking of some… or painting on a shade of fake tan darker than strictly necessary.
But this year, the ladies from the Chester-based soap were a picture of elegance…
Here’s a round-up of the best looks from across the soaps.
Kym Marsh brought a touch of Hollywood glamour to the British Soap Awards with a winning red carpet look.
The Coronation Street star was top of the frocks with a navy, figure-hugging gown that was slashed to the thigh with a high-necked lace overlay, teamed with an updo that was worlds away from her cobbles character’s style.
Lucy Fallon looked almost bridal in a blush and white gown with full skirt and attached veil, while co-star Catherine Tyldesley opted for a white gown with a plunging neckline.
Corrie’s Katie McGlynn went for an edgier look in a cropped white top and mini skirt with silver sequinned embellishment joining the two pieces.
The Hollyoaks stars turned up the glamour factor too – Jessica Fox went for a flowing red dress with a floor-length, sheer skirt.
Stephanie Waring’s sheer black lace gown was a little more revealing, being almost entirely transparent on the bottom half, and Nikki Sanderson’s dress incorporated nude panels along with dark green lace.
Other stars from the Channel 4 soap included Anna Passey in another sheer lace number, this time silver, while Sophie Porley chose classic monochrome in a simple white column dress with black sash.
