Thandie Newton stuns in lilac at BAFTA TV Awards

Actress Thandie Newton turned heads in a Vivienne Westwood dress at the BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday night (14May17).

Thandie Newton stole the spotlight in a striking lilac gown at the BAFTA TV Awards.

The British actress walked the red carpet at the awards show in London on Sunday night (14May17), dazzling in a Vivienne Westwood number with asymmetric neckline, tight bodice and flowing skirt.

Thandie, who recently starred in BBC police drama Line of Duty and acted as a presenter at the bash, matched the outfit with an amethyst-hued eyeshadow and glittering purple drop earrings.

Another star to catch attention at the bash was Gillian Anderson, who sported a long floral dress with fitted torso and flowing ruffled hemline. However, it wasn't just The Fall actress' outfit which led to her hitting headlines. She also stepped onto the red carpet on crutches after injuring her foot, but later ditched the walking aids while posing for photos.

Eleanor Tomlinson ensured all eyes were on her as she stepped onto the red carpet sporting a grey dress with floral pattern which featured a plunging neckline. The Poldark actress' gown featured silver sequin detailing, which she complemented with silver earrings, while wearing her signature fiery red tresses in a chic fishtail-style pony.

Actress Victoria Hamilton, who stars in Netflix's The Crown, looked regal in a shimmering silver gown with an off-the-shoulder neckline. Victoria cinched in the silver sequin gown with a thin black belt at the waist, and finished off the look with feather-shaped earrings and a swipe of ruby-coloured lipstick.

Meanwhile, Hollywood veteran Joan Collins once again pulled out all the stops for the occasion. The 83-year-old wore a silver gown with flared lace sleeves, which she paired with shiny silver shoes and a sparkling star patterned silver necklace.

Joan, who recently starred in movie The Time of Their Lives, topped off the look with her signature bouffant hairdo and lashings of black eyeliner.
