Fashion from the Royal Variety Performance 2012

There were sparkly dresses galore at this year’s Royal Variety show, both on the red carpet and on the stage!

The Queen led the way with a pretty glitzy silver-gold gown, matched with her classic handbag and shoes combo and dressed up with a good helping of diamond jewellery. An exciting moment during the performance was the Girls Aloud reunion and the group wore floor-length black sequin gowns featuring a spangly gold motif running down the centre of each dress - here’s the Queen totally out-doing their outfits during the line-up after the show!

And possibly the most excited acts of the evening was Britain’s Got Talent winners Ashley and Pudsey, who put on a carefully choreographed routine for the Royal family, and both had glammed up for the evening: Ashley wore a very sparkly multi-coloured sequinned prom dress with sweetheart neckline and Pudsey sported a jazzy collar for this special occasion.

Here’s my pick of glamourous glittery dresses available on the high street now, so get your sequins on ready for the Christmas party season!

Famous Tutus – What FHM’s Sexiest Female is wearing…

Despite being voted FHM’s sexiest woman of the year, this weekend Tulisa has been slammed for her awkward ‘dad-dancing’ performance on Britain’s Got Talent on the first live show this Sunday. Fair enough she did look a bit stumpy in her flat shoes, but was it really that bad?? Tulisa has been a trendsetter since she upped her fame as a judge on the X Factor so lets take a look back on the hit (and miss) outfits that have led her to winning FHM’s top title.

       

           

Personally, I think you can’t beat a petticoat-and-cute-dress ensemble: it’s obviously a winning combo!

Tuesday Shoeday – Amanda Holden’s Britain’s Got Talent look

The new panel of judges have come together for the first time this week to audition contestants in Manchester. David Walliams is the new boy and Simon Cowell is back in his head-judge role. Long-standing female judge Amanda Holden arrived wrapped up against the british weather whilst newbie Alesha Dixon wore a sexy yellow dress slashed to the thigh.

As ever, my eyes were on the judge’s footwear and I spotted a trend in Amanda’s shoe wardrobe – she loves shoe boots! This is not the first time she has stepped out in a pair of shoe-boots, here she is last year promoting BGT and in purple shoe-boots at the Brit awards:

 

I’ve had a look around and found these lookey-likey shoe-boots on the high street & online from Miss Selfridge (Purple Suede £50), ShoesUwear.co.uk (Blue with buttons £24) and Topshop (Blue £70). Plus these pairs of black shoe-boots all from New Look (£30, £25 and £35) :
