Fashion Flashback - The IFTA Film Awards 2015

With the IFTA Gala Television Awards ceremony due to take place this coming Thursday (October 22nd) we're casting our minds back to six months ago, when the IFTA Gala Film Awards took place in May.

While May wasn't the traditional time for award ceremonies, she sure beat everyone quivering and getting 'frostbit' on the red carpet in the depths of winter. The time of year may also explained why the proliferation of white gowns at the Irish Film and Television Awards was rife. Host Caroline Morahan got the ball rolling in this Armani off-the-shoulder number.

Aoibhinn Garrihy (she used to be on Fair City) and Mary Murray from Love/Hate and also opted for a classic white guna...

While Aisling Franciosi from The Fall shook things up a bit in a white trouser suit (The Kooples) - which are all the rage this year, don't you know.

Then there was the 'off-white' brigade, championed by Amy Huberman (in Alex Perry) and Collete Fitzpatrick, among others...

As expected, red also featured heavily, coming clad on the likes of Sinead Desmond, Glenda Gilson, and Aisling O'Loughlin...


Moving on, looking simply sublime in a vintage powder blue frock Grace Kelly would've bitten her hand off for, we have Love/Hate's Charlie Murphy...

Amanda Byram set about ruffling a few feathers in Umit Kutluk...

While, at the other end of the spectrum, we have Outlander's Catriona Balfe in a simple guna.

Our favourite look of the night, however, was worn by Sarah Greene. She channeled Marion Cotillard in custom Helen Cody.


Given this TV equivalent is taking place in the depths of October, we're hoping the red carpet ensembles will include lots of shimmer and faux fur gillets. They'll catch their death other wise!

The IFTA Gala Television Awards ceremony will broadcast on TV3 on Friday 23rd at 9pm, and we'll have all the photos from the red carpet from early Friday morning.
