Amid a sea of prestigious winners like Natalie Portman, Colin Firth, and the entire Harry Potter Saga, we were certainly shocked when The Only Way is Essex took home a prize of their own: the YouTube Audience prize!

Similarly, the TOWIE girls’ fashion choices were a bit surprising too. (Mostly in a good way!) Their ensembles were sparkly, often a bit over-the-top, and accompanied by their trademark super-tans, but these BAFTA looks were a very far cry from their usual get-ups.

Sam Faiers (far right) looked the most elegant of the four girls, wearing a floor-length shimmering white gown by Diane von Furstenberg.  Love the v-neckline, black sash, and ruffled black clutch.  And her loose curls are so chic!

The same can’t really be said for Amy Childs (far left), who donned a puffy jewel-encrusted gold gown by Pia Michi.  The color complemented her tan skin and auburn hair nicely, but it wasn’t exactly an elegant choice… especially with all that tulle escaping from the bottom.

Critics loved Lydia Bright’s silver Dynasty gown (second from right), which had sweet flower embellishments through the bodice and down over the skirt.  A backcombed messy up-do and silver sash at the waist completed the frothy look.  Lauren Goodger chose a silver dress as well – one that was decidedly more revealing.  Covered in sequins and in a form-fitting silhouette with a large slit up the side, the Scala gown was a sexier choice.
