davina no

noddyholder Sat 05-Sep-09 11:24:42

I thought she just about pulled it off another year or two and no.I had similar hair do recently for a party dp loved it but I couldn't wait to take it down.The jacket was lovely

NoahFence Sat 05-Sep-09 11:25:30

oh the hair was the worst bit
I htink the outfit would have been a LOT better sans hair

Corporalcornsilk Sat 05-Sep-09 11:26:58

link to it then!

salvadory Sat 05-Sep-09 11:27:34

mucho sequins methinks, jacket would have looked good with blackoutfit underneath if not also sequined. TBH I couldn't get past the awful hair, speaking as a lady with a larger forhead quiffs are a no no).
Also and I know this is a little bit too body fascist but her legs were slightly too large for shiny leggings. On the upside I liked her eye makeup

noddyholder Sat 05-Sep-09 11:27:39

No the hair is essential Her mummy do would have looked ridiculous with those clothes.Have similar black jacket not good!

noddyholder Sat 05-Sep-09 11:28:18

on me that is!

civilfawlty Sat 05-Sep-09 11:28:21

PuppyLoves Sat 05-Sep-09 11:30:46

NoahFence Sat 05-Sep-09 11:31:55

I liked the outfit. Hated the hair. I like the way Davina dresses sexily without flashing the flesh.

noddyholder Sat 05-Sep-09 11:38:42

Cocktail bar groovy party ok.I wore mine last xmas with black skinnies and everyone loved it bar me tbh.V distracting it keeps catching the light It looks good for river island though.BTW if you get that hair done by a hairdresser it gets rid of all forehead wrinkles and 10 yrs younger!

Corporalcornsilk Sat 05-Sep-09 11:41:38

why thankyou salvadory grin

Corporalcornsilk Sat 05-Sep-09 11:42:37

sack your stylist Davina

salvadory Sat 05-Sep-09 11:42:56

prefers a fringe to hide wrinkles as the sheer expanse of my forehead even wrinkle free would scare anyone.
Liked the jacket but sequin overload when with the trews etc. Am hideously jealous really as 24 weeks pregnant and presently in all in one fleece lounge suit, not a good look but so warm

salvadory Sat 05-Sep-09 11:44:25

anytime corporal corn silk

Stayingsunnygirl Sat 05-Sep-09 11:44:41

I agree, Corporalcornsilk - that outfit was atrocious - she should be arrested by the fashion police!

Corporalcornsilk Sat 05-Sep-09 11:47:12

They must have hidden the mirrors in her dressing room I think.

BerylCole Sat 05-Sep-09 11:53:56

I like the look on her but it would look pretty bloody ridiculous anywhere but presenting on TV. Local pub? Urm, no. You'd feel a right twat. Like the hair.

missmelly Sat 05-Sep-09 12:45:31

there's loads of that jacket on ebay. How much were they origally in River Island?

Corporalcornsilk Sat 05-Sep-09 13:13:57

You like the hair Beryl? <wonders what Beryl's hair is like>

shinyshoes Sat 05-Sep-09 13:23:10

I hated the hair (singer of Noisettes anyone??) and the clothes but she managed to pull it off well. Anything like that you need to have a decent figure for and she wore them well.

Corporalcornsilk Sat 05-Sep-09 13:25:29

Yep- nice figure, uber confident etc. Still looked daft.
