Nicola Coughlan, or as we better know her, Clare, was slated by a publication for her choice of dress at the BAFTAs last night.

The Irish actress fired back at the Daily Mirror when her outfit for the night was deemed "not the most flattering".

Coughlan's dress was also described as a "plain pink outfit" which didn't sit well with the actress or her fans.

The actor replied to correct the headline, writing, "I look smokin, sorry bout it".

We think she looks fab, and it turns out we're not alone...
