From Emmerdale to America for foxy Roxy

Former Emmerdale star Roxanne Pallett made us feel full of the joys of Spring when we saw her at the premiere of The Heavy in a bright maxi dress.

When maxi dresses start coming into the stores, it is a sign summer is on its way almost like how wrapping presents makes us feel Christmassy.

And very has 41 maxi dresses in stock right now – so bring on the sunshine!

The soap star’s green and blue number suits the red carpet but it could also work for a beach holiday. Just slip on over a bikini for evening drinks and add a pair of heels to keep you going all night.

For a true night-time maxi dress, this Forever Unique embellished maxi dress is almost a dead ringer for Roxy’s.

But if you want something more casual then this Love Label graphic printed maxi dress is slightly cheaper at £55.

Or keep to this season’s floral trend with a multi-colour Yumi printed maxi dress. Black’s very slimming too!

Although Roxy’s got a fab figure, which she tells us she maintains by jogging, maxi-dresses mean you can indulge in some fruity or creamy summer cocktails without having to suck your stomach in.

At the premiere, the soap star told us she was heading to LA, revealing: “I’ve always wanted to go to Hollywood and I do believe it is my time.

“I’ve gone from soaps to British films so I’ve learned my trade and I think I am ready.

“I just have to wait for an offer, because I don’t want to go out there with no work. I know it’s really competitive out there but I think the job will go to who wants it the most and I definitely want it.”

If it’s a case of dressing to impress then Roxy’s certainly on the right track!
