Hollyoaks Star Emma Rigby Shares Summer Style Tips

Emma Rigby may have left her role as Hannah in Hollyoaks, but the actress is determined not to slip under the radar, with the release of her new film Suicide Kids this summer.

In advance of it’s release the pretty star is getting out and about to remind us that she’s around and destined for spectacular things. And talking of spectacular – she put on a dress with the wow factor when she attended a fashion party in London recently.

The actress – better known for playing anorexia sufferer Hannah Ashworth in the Channel 4 soap – certainly outshone fellow guests at the party, where she was pictured wearing a beautiful bronze coloured dress embellished with stunning diamante detail.

Emma’s upcoming film is described as an “urban thriller, and follows a group of teenagers who make a suicide pact after their friend takes her own life. However, it soon transpires that they are in fact the target of a masked killer.

With Hannah’s co-stars including Robert Sheehan from Misfits, Tulisa from N-Dubz and DJ Reggie Yates, we wonder who is the person behind the mask?

Mask or no mask, Hannah looks set to continue following her dreams of making it to Hollywood, and we say that with her ‘red carpet eat-your-heart-out’ glamour, she’s already halfway there!

If you love the exaggerated shoulders and satin effect of Emma’s dress, you can find a great copycat dress at Very in the shape of the South Cotton Sateen Dress. The dramatic rouched shoulders are ideal for balancing out the hips and making your waist appear tiny – extra points!

Meanwhile, if you’d love to channel Emma’s gorgeous sparkly style, the Coleen Embellished Vintage Skater Dress is a great match, and comes in a beautiful nude chiffon fabric, perfect for floaty elegance. The wide embellished waistband enhances hourglass shape, and skims out at the hips for a streamlined silhouette.

Alternatively, if you’re after something the same colour but less sparkly, the Love Label embellished dipped hem dress is a gorgeously feminine number that is toughened up a rocky hem, striking a perfect balance between girly and fashion forward.

Finally, accessorise with the Pearl and Sequin Clutch Bag and add some further sparkle like Emma with the Evoke Gold 9-carat Crystal-Set Stud Earrings.

Emma’s film Suicide Kids is due out later this summer.
