How Millie Mackintosh And Pixie Lott Got Ready For The TV BAFTA Awards

Before the stars flocked to the red carpet last night for the House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards we took a sneak peek backstage to see
how they prepare for the cameras...

Before last night's House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards the swish Corinthia Hotel was a flurry of activity. Home to the official style suite this is where the who's who of TV descends on to prep for the red carpet awards. And with Taittinger champagne practically on tap plus rail after rail of amazing dresses from House of Fraser we can see why. We headed there too to take a sneak peek backstage to see just exactly how the stars prepare...


If there's one thing you're guaranteed on the red carpet is a whole lot of cameras, which is why celebrities flock to Jules Heptonstall, a St Tropez tanning expert to avoid looking corpse like in front of the flashbulbs. From a classic mist on Ant & Dec (yep even the boys love their tan) to a super dark tan on Claudia Winkleman, Jules has all skin tones covered (literally.)

Hair magic...

Elsewhere, celebrity hair stylist Mark Hill was on-hand to create some red carpet worthy looks.

For Millie, Mark says he went for "a sleek and sophisticated svelte-do" so began by spritzing his Party The Night Away Firm Hold Hairspray all over Millie's hair to keep it tight and add a slight wet-look for a contemporary twise. Next he created a side parting and gathered the hair in a tousled twist at the nape of her neck. Finally he secured the low bun with subtle grips then gave a finally spritz of hairspray to keep everything in place.


Pixie had a completly different look. Mark says: “Pixie has amazing hair and I really wanted to show this off to its full potential so went with a ready-to-go rocking wave! I started by sectioning Pixie’s hair and spraying my  Supersize Me Volume Spray to add some lift straight from her roots. Next I created a flat wave using my Sexy Waves & Curls Pro-Magic Wand. I then brushed through the curls to create a soft and sexy finish. Finally,  he pulled out Pixie’s fringe using his Style & Shine Power Dryer to create a full and voluminous finish to really frame her face.

Finishing touches...

After makeup by the professionals from MAC it was time to don the final finishing touch. We're talking bling of course. This was the fifth year that the lustable jewellery brand CARAT* was the official jewellery partner to the event. Millie and Pixie went for a selection of delicate, intricate rings that added a subtle sparkle on the red carpet while Rosie Fortescue and Lilah Parsons both opted for a more statement armoured style which they immediately took to Instagram to flaunt. Anyone else very jealous?
