Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon treated fans to a free concert in Nottingham and showed she could sing as well as she could move.
Alesha, who won Strictly in 2007 before becoming a judge, did her gig to mark the opening of a new Best Buy technology store in the city. Hope she got some cool gagdets as part of her appearance fee?
Thousands of fans turned up for the musical entertainment but Alesha made sure everyone could see her by wearing a hot pink dress. She looked stunning in the sunlight, especially when she started singing and dancing to her hits including Boy Does Nothing and Breathe Slow.
If you like Alesha’s look, you can get some style tips from her in our interview below.
QS: How would you describe your own personal style?
ALESHA: “A bit weird and colourful! I love bright summer dresses.”
QS: What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe?
ALESHA: “Some girls are obsessed by shoes, but I think I am more into dresses. But I couldn’t possibly pick just one.”
QS: “Do you get any fashion freebies?
ALESHA: “Yes, I am very lucky. I do get sent nice little dresses. And sometimes shorts.”
QS: If you could steal another stars style, who would it be and why?
ALESHA: “Beyonce always looks pretty hot.”
QS: What’s your ultimate fashion tip?
QS: Have you had any fashion faux pas?
ALESHA: “When I was in Mis-Teeq and agreed to try this designers outfit. I had a wolf on my skirt. It was awful. We looked like a horror show. It was a long denim skirt with a wolfs face on it.”
Thankfully, Alesha’s grown into her style since the Misteeq era. There’s no wolf on her skirt these days and her fashion sense drives us wild for all the right reasons.
Pink is a fabulous summer colour and if you think so too then you can recrate Alesha’s lovely summer outfit with similar items from Very. Check out the hot Vicky Martin strappy Celera dress
Alesha’s dress has a touch of black to offset the pink. Mixing contrasting colours makes the pink appear even brighter but the other shade doesn’t have to be black. Try it with grey and the sport chic cool Love Label 2 in 1 colour block dress
However, black and pink do go well together as you can see by the stunning Elements Amanda Wakeley one shoulder jersey maxi dress
Alesha tops off her dress with a black leather jacket and if you like that you’ll love the South leather biker jacket
Finish the look with some pendant earrings so everyone notices the radiance on your face, which comes from looking good and knowing it. The Fiorelli double heart earrings are gorgeous and just £7.50
Strictly Come Dancing will be back on TV in September and before that hard-working Alesha is moving house.
Her get up and go is so inspiring – she never stops!
