It was a busy weekend for Rod Stewart’s wife Penny Lancaster as she attended a posh polo party on Saturday followed by the gala premiere of Toy Story 3 on Sunday.
With rocker Rod on tour, playing a variety of summer castles and festivals, Penny had the opportunity to dress up and show off her legs.
The model turned photographer doesn’t normally let the fact that Rod is several inches shorter than her stop her from showing off her best assets, but she could dress with confidence at the polo knowing there was no danger of upstaging her 5 ft 9” husband.
We love the striking printed dress 6ft tall Penny wore to the Duke of Essex polo championship, where the 36-year-old showed off a figure of someone 10 years younger.
Clearly being with an older rocker like Rod has made the former Ultimo model look younger rather than more mature. Interesting!
Choosing outfits for a formal occasion like polo, a garden party or a summer wedding reception can be difficult as it’s hard to mix keeping cool without upstaging the bride or looking tacky.
As Penny demonstrates, you should either show off your legs or your cleavage.
Plus pick dresses in a lightweight material so that you’re glowing with happiness, not perspiration.
Presumably Mrs Stewart learned that skill on Strictly Come Dancing, where she was required to look fabulous while being active with things like the foxtrot.
If you’re trying to do the same, stay formal but fabulous with a Savoir Ikat print tunic dress
Or for something a bit brighter, especially if you want to show off a summer tan, there’s a Fearne Cotton insect print wrap dress
Keep cool and chic with a Love Label cape pleat floral dress
But if you want a bold print that’s not too OTT, one of the new arrivals is a Savoir print maxi dress
Finish the look with a pair of uber cool sunglasses!
We reckon it will now be a while before we see the Tommy’s Baby Charity ambassador out and about as revealed she was taking time out from in front of the camera to work behind the lens.
The mother of one revealed she is planning to display a range of photos that she has taken of the landscapes near her holiday home in the South of France.
We’re sure that will be very successful, as long as she doesn’t have any of wrinkly Rod in his Speedos.
