Maybe They Should Change The Name To "So You Think You Can Dress"
August 7, 2009
Sure, I’ve tuned in to So You Think You Can Dance every week to see the amazing choreography and the talented-beyond-belief contestants, but really, I just wanted to see what host Cat Deeley was going to wear. For the 100th episode, it was a sequined leopard-head sheath, and for last night’s finale, she donned the world’s sexiest satin bedsheet (get a lookalike that doesn’t require as much fashion tape in Black Halo’s sheath for $390).
And while the cheeky former model is the dictionary definition of “legs for days,” her looks are doable for anyone who wants to make a major statement at an upcoming cocktail party.
When in doubt, embellish. Cat showed off her great gams in a blue sequined tunic from Matthew Williamson (which, unfortunately, sold out at Net-a-Porter). But mimic her style with Vince’s flashy mini ($225).
While we’re used to seeing a lot of skin, this crisp, tailored tux is still ultra sexy. Costume National sells a white suit that doesn’t scream Saturday night fever ($480).
Just because a dress has been made famous on TV doesn’t mean it costs an arm and a leg. Cat took a frugal approach to the strapless cocktail dress in this army green French Connection frock. The same style in chic copper is only $100.
