Its 9.30 am on the morning of 6 June and Lydia West is excited to break her BAFTAs virginity. On the phone to British Vogue to discuss her first major red-carpet moment while her glam squad Sculptured and smouldering! shouts make-up artist Valeria Ferreira of the beauty direction from the background its the perfect calm before the storm. West, who will present an award alongside her Its A Sin co-star Olly Alexander is fizzing with excitement down the line. Its infectious.

The rising star and Russell T Davies favourite (prior to his most recent drama about the glory and tragedy of gay 80s London, West starred as a transhuman in his Years and Years), finds inspiration in the hair and make-up chair. Im really experimental, so I love getting new ideas from the artists, she enthuses in a bright-eyed way thats lost on actors for whom getting red-carpet ready is just part of the rigmarole of showbiz.

Im obsessed with Loewe; Jonathan is just a master, West tells British Vogue of her spring/summer 2021 red-carpet look.

The feeling is mutual. Farrah OConnor, who has been styling West since Its A Sin swept the nation in January, writes via email: Lydia is a bit of a chameleon in that she can really carry lots of different looks; I look for things that I know she will be comfortable in, but that will also be cool, chic and a little playful. Wests TV BAFTAs look a Loewe spring/summer 2021 black column dress with cream silk cloud-like sleeves is classic yet directional and chimes with Wests minimalist-modern approach to fashion. When she tried it on, we both just knew it was perfect for her, shares OConnor. She really came to life in it. It was written all over her face.
