Tess Daly In Alexander McQueen - 'Strictly Come Dancing' Launch Party

Tess Daly attended the red carpet launch for ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ held at Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, England yesterday evening.

The host wore an Alexander McQueen Resort 2013 gown which illuminated her golden beauty with a gleaming gold-sequinned bodice with a colourful jewelled neckline.

Being so golden, the illusion panel at the sides and back of the dress was that much more visible.

Par for the course, some might say, on a show where illusion panels appear on every contestant’s dress and having a golden glow is mandatory. I would say it’s slightly jarring. Plus she should’ve considered wearing her hair up with this look.

You may remember that Naomi Watts wore the same gown to the People’s Choice Awards back in January and the panel wasn’t an issue as it was a closer match to her skin tone.

Even Christine Teigen, a woman of colour, didn’t have any issue with the illusion panel when she wore the same dress to the Vanity Fair party.
