Konnie Huq Has The Xtra Factor In Summer Florals

The future is looking rosy for former kids TV presenter Konnie Huq who has made the transition from after-school teatime favourite Blue Peter to prime-time The Xtra Factor.

So she decided to literally wear those roses on her dress as she attended a party to mark 100 years of cult skincare brand Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream.

We caught up with Konnie at the star-studded bash at London’s Home House, where she said she’s working longer hours than ever before.

‘It’s really harder than I expected,’ she revealed. ‘I’m used to hard work and lots of travelling since Blue Peter but this is more people based. And I am taking over from Holly Willoughby who the nation loves.

‘Saying that, I am over the moon I got the job. I wasn’t expecting it. And I’m going to do my best to make it fun for everyone watching at home.”

As well as the extra work load, the bubbly presenter is planning a wedding to TV funnyman Charlie Brooker.

They met when she appeared on his Screenwipe show on BBC 4 last year.

‘We’re really happy, although we don’t get to spend that much time together at the moment,’ the energetic TV star added.  “But he’s definitely a keeper and I am very happy.

“I want to have at least three babies.”

How exciting! Maybe that’s another reason why Konnie is wearing this white dress to make the most of her pre-pregnancy figure.

White is a brilliant colour for summer and florals are on trend this summer.

Copy the look with a Teatro embellished jaquard prom dress from Very.

Or for something edgier, but still girly and feminine try a Pixie Loves Lipsy border print dress

For special occasions, a People’s Market strappy flower dress will really get you noticed.

Copy Konnie and make the look more rock with some Flat Black Boots

These Love Label Merlin pin stud ankle boots – new in – are the epitome of causal cool.
