Who knew that Jacqui McQueen could scrub up so well?! Claire Cooper who plays her was the star of the night in my eyes, not only for winning Best Actress (I Love Hollyoaks, and was so happy for her) but she looked amazing in this sheer panelled dress, the back was completely cut out, yet she still managed to look totally chic and elegant.

Jorgie Porter went for a Greek goddess meets superhero look, and it definitely worked. I love the gold belt and shoes, and her curly up-do is so pretty. No bag though... where is she keeping her phone?!

Nikki Sanderson looked lovely in this blush and silver coloured dress. Her toned down makeup and hair worked so well with the soft fabrics, and the contrast of the sequins is stunning. I think she proves that sequins can look classy.

Chelsea Halfpenny rocked an edgier look for the red carpet, with chunky black boots and a t-shirt dress, personally I really love this style, although maybe it's not your traditional red carpet look. 
Georgia May Foote also wore orange, but in a more glamorous style... to be honest, she could wear anything and look amazing in it though! I love how she's gone all out on her hair and makeup with a simple dress, this works really well.

How could I write a best dressed list and not include Michelle Keegan? She looked as beautiful as ever,  and her dress just made her look even prettier. I love how simple, delicate and girly is is, yet it really shows off her figure. I'm a big fan of her box clutch bag too.

Tina O'Brien looked gorgeous in this sequinned and feather dress, which was so glamorous it almost has a wedding dress look to it. The colour of the dress makes her tan look beautiful but most of all though, I love her Brigitte Bardot inspired hair and makeup, she looks amazing!

Although I'm not a big fan of Charley Webb's hair and makeup here (the makeup is way too harsh, and I think that plus the tight top knot makes her look quite old), I do love her outfit. I'm a big fan of matching two-pieces, be it this style, or shorts and a blazer etc... She's definitely got the figure to pull off this style, I just think softer makeup would have been a nice contract to the slightly gothic themed outfit.
I couldn't find a photo of Mandip Gill on her own, but I was blown away with how pretty she looked. A complete transformation from her image as Phoebe on Hollyoaks! I love the colour and style of her dress, and her fishtail plait is so pretty.

Lucy Dixon was brave to wear bright yellow, especially with her red hair, but she pulls it off so well, and looks really striking in it.
I'm a bit in love with the dress Scarlett Bowman wore, I love the colours in it, and I've definitely got my eye on this for my next night out. I really love how she's styled her hair too.

I wouldn't have expected to like any satin dresses, but I love these two. 
Jacqueline Jossa picked the prettiest peachy coral colour, and I love the neckline detailing on it.
Anna Shaffer went for a more subtle colour, and channeled Hollwood glamour with her hair and bold lip colour.
