Pride Of Britain Awards: Highlights Of The Night

The Pride Of Britain Awards is one of the most heart-warming events of the year, which honours real people that have made a difference. Inside, there’s hardly a dry eye in the house as all the celebs listen to the tales of bravery by ordinary people doing  extraordinary things. However, all the stars make an effort on the red carpet in order to get publicity for the awards.

On the night it may have been raining heavily but it didn’t stop the celebs from going all out in maxi dresses. The only famous face that didn’t go full length and fabulous was Alesha Dixon but she looked just as gorgeous. Here’s my top looks:

 Cheryl Fernandez-Versini


Not only was the colour of her blue maxi dress attention grabbing, but the backless effecr was stunning as it gave us a hint of her huge back tattoo. She doesn’t show that off nearly as much as she could do and I thought she pulled off a classy look to perfection.

Alesha Dixon


Alesha is one strong woman. She didn’t shed a tear on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories show, on which grown men have been reduced to blubbering babies.  It’s a brave decision to wear a tailored suit to an awards ceremony but her high heels add some glam.

Abby Clancey


Angelina Jolie eat your heart out! Abby took the side split maxi dress to another level.  Still if you had legs like thast you probably would, wouldn’t you? Heels are a must for Abby with her giant husband,who is a lucky man as she brings him some class.

Lauren Silverman


Talking about lucky, Cowell should be grateful to have Lauren Silverman on his arm. Since she gave birth to baby Eric, Cowell has chilled out lots. Plus Lauren lookes amazing in a black maxi dress – she could have anyone she wanted…and she puts up with Simon?!

Tulisa Constavlos


After taking part in Louis Walsh’s episode of the judges houses stage of X Factor, Tulisa’s got a new lease of life. She seems more demure and sophisticated this time around, opting for a black dress than the bright colours she previously wore.

Myleene Klass


Myleene picked a strapless black maxi dress from her own collection, which was like a dress version of a man’s tailored suit and you can buy it for £85!  The shape suits her figure and she accessories with a simple pair of black heels. There’s clearly a reason why her surname is Klass…

Amanda Holden


Currently presenting This Morning with Phillip Schofield, Amanda Holden will have an early start in the morning but she wasn’t letting that hinder her sense of fun. Her sequin green maxi dress made her seem mermaid-like as she sashayed down the red carpet. Talk about gigh octane glamour!

Who do you think looked best?

The awards will be show on ITV on 7 October and then available on demand on Have s box of tissues to hand.
