Video: Elle Macpherson Hosts Britain’s Top Model

Elle Macpherson is taking over from Lisa Snowdon as the host of Britain’s Next Top Model on LIVING TV and we can reveal the series looks amazing.

Not only does the Australian supermodel remain drop dead gorgeous after 30 years in the fashion industry, but the show is packed full of ups and downs and catfights between the contestants that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the end of the run.

As usual, the wannabe top models are from all different class backgrounds so expect friction when the single mother mixes with the well-bred English rose characters.

To add fuel to the fire, the girls are  forced to sleep in dormitories in a finishing school.

And one of their teachers is Julien Macdonald, the Welsh fashion designer who has dressed stars like Cheryl Cole, Kylie Minogue and Paris Hilton.

A new face and eye candy for all the female TV viewers is male model Charley Speed – yum!

But it’s Elle that was thew star of the launch party held at London nightclub Circus, because how many 47 year olds can pull off wet look leggings and look better than people 20 years younger?

What’s so refreshing about the model nicknamed The Body is that she is still inseure and nervous about how the show will be receieved.

As you can see in our video of the launch party, Elle begs people to stick with it if they find it boring at the start. Bless!

Apparently there is a secret when it comes to wearing women’s leggings. Elle shows that if you are going to let your legs do the talking then keep it simple elsewhere with a white t-shirt and high heel shoes.

Feeling daring? Try Very’s Miss Sixty wet look leggings

For some rock-chick style, there are Firetrap jersey studded leggings

Or make your legs even more shapely – literally – with some Love Label mesh leggings, with cut out shape detail

Best bargain of all is these South all over sequin leggings, which are now £7 – a saving of £11 on their starting price of £18. Get them while stocks last and walk tall and proud, channeling your inner supermodel. Work it!
