My fellow judges, from left to right, were Fashion Stylist Nicole Smallwood, actress Roxane Pallett and Anna Dowd, Fashion Producer for this morning. A really fab bunch of girls.
The Matalan Style Awards and Fashion Show were hosted by Jeff Brazier and previous Matalan Style Awards winner Sophie Fairclough. They made an amazing team and a super entertaining show.
Here's Jeff giving our fab winner a congratulatory cuddle
And here is the lovely Sophie on the far left in our girly team shot with Carly from Matalan.
Sophie is a beauty and a super sweet girl.
There were 2500 entrants for the Matalan Style Awards. Now that is a lot of outfits!! My head was spinning from concentrating and my face was burning from smiling by the end of it, but all in a good way because it was so much fun.
Here are our three finalists waiting in the wings...
And this is the moment our winner was announced! It was lovely Kelly Platt who was wearing a vintage dress that used to belong to her granny!!
She won £5000 in cash, £500 to spend in Matalan and £500 worth of Benefit goodies! Plus a shoot with Matalan. Now that is quite a prize - no wonder she looked happy!!
During the contest we had a visit from two of the Take Me Out girls.
And also a proposal of marriage. So emotional!!
An amazing day was had by all and I thoroughly enjoyed my first judging experience. A massive thanks to Matalan for asking me to sit on their panel. It was a proud moment!
What would win for you in Race day style?
