Zebra prints in sequins, deep v-necks, sheers all over the place (not always in the right places mind you)… the Zeynep Kartal collection was all about glamorous evening-wear of the glitziest kind. Pieces were decorated with intricate floral lace and sequins. Lots of sequins. Loads.

Velvet jumpsuits and trouser suits also came into play, but the use of this fabric somehow made the looks seem very dated. On the whole, although this collection ticked the glitzy glamorous award ceremony type box, it was much more soap awards than BAFTA’s.

There was however, one redeeming piece; a beautiful cream wedding dress with sheer full sleeves and (of course) sequins.
