Lisa Loves – key picks from Evans

Like most of the nation last year, I became a massive admirer of the wonderful Lisa Riley. She was totally sensational on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, a dancing dream who wowed the judges with pretty much every dance, and never looked less than amazing. Lisa was a real inspiration and showed just what a talented and versatile entertainer she is.

Lisa is also one very stylish lady who is the perfect choice to front a series of style videos for Evans.  She knows what suits her, is body confident and has a really good eye for putting things together in a stylish and fun way.

Here are some of the fab shots from this series.

Today’s Celebrity ‘get the look’ post is just a little bit different in that it focuses on some of the beautiful stars of the small screen.  From reality TV stars like Lucy Watson, looking fabulous in the publicity shots for the new series of Made in Chelsea, to Towie stars Lucy Mecklenburgh and Danni Park Dempsey showing off great pieces from AX Paris and Jaydah Jewellery, these ladies are showing that you do not need to break the bank in order to look amazing.

We also have some soap star looks from Coronation Street stars Michelle Keegan and Samia Ghadie, and also a fabulous Kzeniya bag carried by rising star Jenna Louise Coleman. Zoe Hardman continues her Reiss obsession in a blue short suit that is one of her best looks yet.  And finally, we have a host of wonderful looks worn by Lisa Riley, all from Anna Scholz. Lisa is absolutely knocking it out of the park stylewise at the moment, and these dresses show why Anna is the designer of choice for plus size celebrities who want to look chic and elegant.

Strictly Come Dancing Live at NIA, Birmingham

Last night ,I attended Strictly Come Dancing Live at the NIA, Birmingham, and what a fabulous spectacle it was. Glamorous, sparkling and oh so entertaining, it was a show that made you laugh out loud one minute,  and swoon in awe and wonder the next. I absolutely loved it!

The Live show is different from the television series. Kate Thornton takes over the Bruce and Tess role and brings sass, sarcasm and wit to the role, not to mention the fact that I had serious dress envy at her wonderful Marios Schwab dress. (I have to thank Kate for tweeting to confirm my suspicions about the designer of the dress – it truly made my night). There was no Darcy on the judging panel, but the terrible trio of Bruno, Len and Craig were in turns hysterically funny, with Craig in full panto baddie role, Len playing his grandfatherly voice of reason, and Bruno so animated you thought he might wet himself at any given minute. Clearly we were in for an exciting, fun-filled night.

There were seven contestants, six from the most recent series, including winner (and all round sex god – let’s be honest here) Louis Smith and fellow finalist Denise Van Outen. They were joined by Phil Tufnell, who must have been added for comic value, sticking his bottom out like a constipated duck for most of his dance.  Michael Vaughan was also showing that dancing can be a game of two halves, amazing and graceful during the American Smooth, terrible during the Salsa.

Lisa Riley, Fern Britton (with hilarious sob stories), and Dani Harmer completed the team, each bringing their own little bit of magic to the proceedings. The girls all looked beautiful, showing why Strictly is a little girl’s dream series. Fern summed it up perfectly when she said that Strictly is like living in a snowglobe, all glitter and sequins. I couldn’t agree more, seeing the NIA transformed into a huge ballroom , complete with glitterball and shimmering chandeliers.

The snow was pretty horrendous on the night, but it was well worth braving for what was an amazing exxperience. Denise topped the leaders board with a perfect score of 60, but Louis was once again the people’s champion, with his dreamy interpretation of Dirty Dancing totally wowing the crowd. The audience was all on their feet at the end, a perfect finale to a perfect evening.
