When I go to a premiere, I usually expect to see celebrities in maxi dresses. They’re formal events and celebrities want to stand out so it’s become the norm for them to wear full-length dresses. But at the premiere of the controversial movie Belle, I saw not one, not two but three celebrities in smart separates. And what’s more they all looked fabulous in their crop tops and skirts.
For example, Alesha Dixon, who only gave birth a few months ago, looked almost unrecognisable in a long red maxi skirt and black top. Alesha has fantastic legs so she normally dresses to show them off because she is proud of them – and rightly so – but she looked so classy in this outfit. With Britain’s Got Talent back on our screens and the final just days away, Alesha has a busy schedule but she said she wanted to attend the premiere because she was inspired by the main character’s story. Belle is about the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a respected admiral and although she is better off than some, she is never properly accepted in the family. But she stays strong and as she gets older, she changes history by helping to end slavery. Ex Sugababe, Jade Ewen is a brave woman, which she showed as she dived off the boards on Splash! and she’s currently taking on another exciting project. She’s starring in a musical called Tonight’s The Night, based on the songs of Rod Stewart, which is currently touring the UK. It’s great she timed her London trip to coincide with this premiere to wow us in her blue skirt.
Then check out Dionne Bromfield, an up and coming soul singer:
Dionne has musical influences from the late Amy Winehouse, who was her godmother, but when it comes to style she is in a league of her own. I love how she has co-ordinated her hair to match her white top and blue skirt!
Is this changing your mind about wearing a skirt and top to a party instead of a dress? It’s definitely changing mine!
