Christine Bleakley In Philip Armstrong - 2013 National Television Awards

I was really surprised by Christine Bleakley’s red carpet choice at the 2013 National Television Awards, held at the O2 Arena in London last night.

That’s because her Philip Armstrong Atelier red crepe gown with lace inserts was worn exactly two weeks ago by Helen Hunt at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Awards.

All parties would’ve known the gown had just been worn so the only reasoning is because she wanted the comparison.

Considering she may be locating to the US with her footballer fiancé Frank Lampard, who may play for LA Galaxy, I guess she wanted the Hollywood connection.

It’s a gorgeous gown, and she looks equally gorgeous in it, but this was a strange decision by the designer to allow this dress to be worn again so soon when he had just cracked America.
