Duchess Kate and Jessica Ennis bring glamour to the Sports Personality Awards

The Sports personality of the year awards are always a clear sign that it is nearly Christmas, and this year the ceremony was more exciting than ever. As well as having so many candidates deserving of winning the title after the greatest sporting year for Britain in living memory, the ceremony also heralded the first public engagement for the Duchess of Cambridge after her recent stay in hospital.

Kate looked incredibly elegant and glossy in an emerald-green, v necked gown from Alexander McQueen that had a rather sexy front split detail. The slightly puffed sleeves, fitted Cumberband style waistband and long skirt were demure, and the colour, emerald-green, has been named as the patone colour of 2013, showing Kate is clearly on the ball when it comes to her trends.

Jessica Ennis won the runner-up trophy and was also a clear winner in the style stakes. The beautiful heptathlete also had the whole of twitter seemingly gasping over the perfection of her bottom in her form-fitting red dress from Victoria Beckham which fitted her to perfection. I am a huge fan of Jessica’s style, and this dress was another classic look, clean lines, without frills and oozing sensuality.

Jessica Ennis – Queen of the World

Jessica Ennis is on top of the world right now, the Golden girl of sport with a gold medal to prove it. And it seems that sport is not the only area in which Jessica is excelling – showing herself to be no slouch in the style stakes either. Blessed with a glorious figure and a beautiful face, it would be hard for Jessica to look anything less than stunning, but her style choices have met with universal approval.

From Victoria Beckham on the Jonathan Ross show, to Alexander McQueen in salmon pink, Jessica has shown her style is ladylike and classic. She chooses knee length skirts, but varies the silhouette – from skater style skirts to very sexy pencil styles. She embraces a colour palette that makes the clothes visually interesting – not all little black dresses for this lady – and then leaves the trainers behind to enhance each outfit with a killer heel.

I think it is wonderful that so many young girls are already citing Jessica as an inspiration, her healthy, sporty physique is a fabulous thing for young girls to see as an ideal. And with Jessica showing that her off track style is impressive as her track performance, I hope she is one trendsetter who we will be talking about for a very long time.
