Cat Deeley Dazzles In Lace At BAFTA TV Awards

She may have left her Brummie roots behind her in favour of LA‘s glitz and glam, but Cat Deeley proved she still has the fashion sense of an English rose when she showed up to the BAFTA awards to celebrate and honour home-grown television and film.

Looking ultra glamorous in a black lace maxi dress with ornate vintage style jewellery, the presenter of So You Think You Can Dance finished off the look with a chic updo which showcased the interesting sheer lace panel of her dress.

Lace is one of the key trends for summer, with lace trims and embellishments on women’s tops and skirts as well as dresses and handbags. The tops look great with jeans for day but lace maxi dresses like the one modelled by Cat make you look a million dollars.

And if Cat was looking more so than ever like the feline that got the cream, perhaps it’s due to a new love interest, as Very can reveal that the recently single star has been linked to Welsh hunk Steve Jones.

Rumour has it that the pair hit it off at a Fox network preview in New York and exchanged numbers. With Steve now set to be spending much more time in the US due to his American X Factor presenting contract, we think it sounds like the perfect match.

So You Think You Can Dance is due to end next month and then Cat’s free to concentrate on her love life. Exciting!

If you’ve been inspired by the glam-factor of Cat’s maxi look, the Vila Sofella Floor Dress is a great way to try out this season’s dress length of choice. With a beautiful chiffon overlay and ruffle neckline, this dress flatters the figure with a drawn in waist and adjustable straps.

Or the mid-length Teatro lace tiered dress also looks lovely, chic and elegant

Or if like Cat, you want to give maxi length lace a go, try the South Column Maxi Skirt and team it with the Fearne Cotton Lace T-Shirt for a unique and inspired take on the look.

Finish with exquisite, ornate jewellery such as these pretty Elements Pearl Drop Earrings and a Diamante Stretch Bangle, and you too will be looking like the cat that got the cream!

Looking as hot as this, Steve Jones would be mad to let Cat get away. We wish them all the best!
