The Britain’s Got Talent contestants weren’t the only ones upping the ante for the semi-final at the weekend. Alesha Dixon called in the catwalk big guns for Sunday and Monday nights shows, taking to the stage in high fashion frocks from Mary Katrantzou and Gucci. First up was a popping number from London Fashion Week print queen Mary, which Alesha teamed with pink Charlotte Olympia platforms and bouncy locks, before throwing us a wardrobe curveball on the second night with a sleeker look in embellished, art deco inspired Gucci, a groomed ponytail and dainty strappy shoes.
Sadly, swooning over these pics of Alesha is probably about as close as we’ll ever get to her designer hot frocks, but Lipsy are on hand to help us pay tribute, high street style, with their homages. Try layering the embellished bandeau over a sheer long sleeve top for even more of a Gucci feel, or follow Ms Dixon’s lead by choosing a pair of heels that complement out a colour on the floral dress for extra zing. Well, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all. GG
