Ashley Roberts In Manning Cartell – National Television Awards 2014

Ashley Roberts In Manning Cartell - National Television Awards 2014

Former Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts took to the red carpet last night for the National Television Awards 2014 (January 22), held at the O2 Arena in London

Wearing an on-trend metallic dress by Manning Cartell for the occasion, the TV presenter made a striking turn at the event.

Having seen Ashley in a mix of long flowing gowns and sexy mini dresses in the past, it was great to see her experiment with a new look.

Ashley is also one of the first stars we’ve spotted trailing the new season’s key metallic trend so cedit where credits due, but I can’t help but feel Ashley suits more feminine dresses rather than this directional turn.

Ashley’s mix of a dark purple lip and slicked back hair feels too severe. To be fair, it suits the modernity of the dress but a softer lip shade would have been much more flattering.

I do however love the combination of the midi length and split – it’s so much more sexy showing a subtle flash of flesh don’t you think?

    I’m not a big fan of the dress but I think it’s safe to say that it works much(!) better on her than the model. It looks great on her figure and she is working it, looking sexy and confident, but the purple lip is killing me, it doesn’t flatter and feels very forced.

    The dress works on her but the hair and makeup spoil the presentation in my opinion. She looks like a robot.

    Joining the chorus, I like the dress on her a lot-it fits like a glove , and the pale metallic color manages not to wash her out. Every last bit of styling is a fail though. The hair and lipcolor, as others have mentioned, but for me, the shoes don’t work either. The ankle strap with that length of dress just cuts her legs off every which way.
