The dress was a floor-length affair, with a Bardot neckline and a matching choker.

She added sharp white heels to the outfit, sweeping her mane back from her features to showcase her striking make-up to its full potential.

The Lonely Together songstress boasted a bronzed complexion which she painted with sparkling turquoise eye make-up and dark pink lipstick.

Her eye make-up glistened in the bright lights of the red carpet, painted in dramatic zig-zags for extra pizzazz.

Rita’s dress is from designer 16Arlington and was fashioned bespoke for the pop star.

The print is a core theme from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection which has been reinterpreted into a special look for Rita. It’s been constructed to wrap around her body as a seamless coil and shaped into swirled leather panels.

February 2019 saw 16Arlington show on schedule at London Fashion Week for the first time. The highly successful presentation took the format of a runway show, with an invigorating soundtrack inside and a bustling queue outside.

Reviews were published on WWD, Vogue International and many other prestigious titles around the world. This resulted in the brand becoming a firm favourite amongst the fashion crowd and a regular feature in highly regarded fashion publications.

Katie Price left uncomfortable as she’s questioned on whether she’s cheated on anybody

Published

By

She’s been having a productive start to the New Year, throwing herself into her work after vowing to ‘give up booze, sex and men’. 

But Katie Price was awkwardly reminded of her turbulent last year during a game of Never Have I Ever on Saturday, in which she was questioned on whether she had cheated on someone.

The 41-year-old star, who admitted to cheating on on-off boyfriend Kris Boyson last year, looked decidedly uncomfortable when the question arose during the fun new Instagram game.

Katie is currently in the French Alps, where she’s set to perform at the UK Garage Festival in the ski resort of Val Thorens on Sunday.

She’s also filming brand new scenes for her reality show, My Crazy Life. 

And ahead of her big performance, the star enjoyed some downtime with pals Zoe James and DJ Rick Live as she played the game, which asks users random questions. 

But she didn’t seem to impressed as the game landed on the statement ‘cheated on someone.’

While the former glamour model looked perplexed, her friend burst out laughing at the toucht statement.

Katie then played again and as the game asked whether she had ‘dressed as the opposite sex’, the duo were left howling with laughter. 

In December, the mum-of-five admitted she had cheated on Kris Boyson, 30, twice over the course of their relationship. 

In a scene from her reality show, Katie was confronted by the personal trainer after being widely reported to have had flings with toyboys Alex Adderson and Charles Drury.

Owning up to her infidelity and confirming their engagement is off, Katie tells Kris bluntly, ‘Yes, I cheated on you twice’.

The downtrodden personal trainer replied: ‘What Kieran put you through is what you are putting me through right now.’ 

Katie’s estranged husband Kieran Hayler famously cheated on her with her two best friends Chrissy Thomas and Jane Pountney.

The pair split in 2018 following a five-year marriage, but are yet to finalise their divorce.

Meanwhile, Katie vowed to have a positive 2020, with a source telling The Sun on Sunday that the reality star plans to become celibate and has sworn herself off men after reflecting on her ‘difficult year’. 

It was a rocky 2019 for the former glamour model after she was declared bankrupt, had a drink-driving ban and split from on-off boyfriend Kris.

The insider said: ‘Katie was talking over Christmas about what she might try and give up for New Year. She was talking about what a disaster it has been with men in 2019 and how she’s tried most resolutions over the years.

‘She’s vowed before to cut down on booze, to diet and try to eat more healthily so she said maybe now is the time to take a vow of celibacy and see how she gets on.’

They have been the popular hosts of Britain’s Got Talent since 2007.

And Ant McPartlin, 44, was back at work alongside Declan Donnelly, 44, for the first round of auditions for the new series at The London Palladium on Saturday.

It comes amid claims Ant is set to hand over £31m to his ex-wife Lisa Armstrong in their divorce settlement, including their £5m former home in West London.

Sharing snaps of the day on Instagram, Ant and Dec were seen grinning as judge David Walliams draped his arms over their shoulders.

Ant crossed his arms for the picture and looked dapper in a button up shirt which boasted a red checked pattern throughout it.

Comedian David looked smart for the auditions, wearing a white shirt and tie with his black suit, and also posed with fellow judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.

Amanda cut a stylish figure in a pink ensemble and wore her blonde locks down and slightly wavy while Alesha wowed in a chunky gold necklace.

The official BGT Instagram also shared a timelapse video of the Palladium stage being prepared for auditions and the all important crosses being lifted into place.

It comes after Ant allegedly agreed to give his ex Lisa more than half of his estimated £50 million fortune. 

According to The Sun, the I’m A Celebrity host is ‘delighted’ the case has come to an end as he can ‘move on’, two years after announcing their split.

A source close to both sides told the paper: ‘Ant and Lisa agreed to settle and sign their divorce agreement during a productive and civil meeting on Tuesday.

‘Ant made a very generous settlement that works out to be more than half of everything that he has.    

‘He is delighted because it means he can put what has been a very difficult chapter in his life behind him and move on.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Ant and Lisa for comment.

However, as the news broke, Lisa took to Twitter to deny the claims, posting: ‘Nope a load of nonsense AGAIN….’ 

She went to ‘like’ tweets which stated: ‘no amount of money could ever compensate for what this poor girl has had to endure’, and ‘Get what you can! 

‘You deserve it! Terrible treatment of you since you found out when we did! And with a so called friend! It’s heartbreaking behaviour’. 

Lisa also made her feelings clear on Saturday after liking a tweet which branded her ex ‘s****y and spineless’ amid their divorce battle.

The make-up artist also liked the tweet which suggested the money she is allegedly set to receive ‘means nothing’ because it ‘can’t buy respect’.

The post read: ‘I bet the money means nothing in some respects, it certainly can’t buy the respect she deserves…

It continued: ‘What the sum is I’m sure it will be put to much better use & I wish her all the best. [heart emoji].’

Ant and Lisa married in July 2006 and announced they were divorcing in January 2018. Their union legally ended during a 30-second hearing in October that year.

She’s been rocking short, shoulder-length hair as of late. 

But on Friday, Hilary Duff showed off longer hair for a family photo shoot in the Hollywood Hills.

The star appeared to have received the extensions on Wednesday, courtesy of hairstylist Riawna Capri at the NineZeroOne salon.

We’re bundled up with the snow and freezing temps in New York, so Hilary Duff sparked envy as she was seen without a coat in sunny Los Angeles.

Her utility jumpsuit is, in fact, the perfect transitional piece for winter in LA, and she was sporting this one for a family photo shoot. The actress went monochrome by pairing it with some suede tan booties by Proenza Schouler and let her golden locks fall below her shoulders. She styled it by cuffing the pant legs and tailoring the sleeves to be hit at the elbow. Jumpsuits make it super easy to get dressed in the morning and are versatile enough you can wear them at work or on the weekend.

If you want to emulate Hilary, get hers by clicking right, and pick up her military-inspired boots below. Or why not save some cash and get one like it for less? The carousel below shows you the best options.

Hilary looked safari chic in a tan jumpsuit, complete with buttons down the middle. 

The pretty blonde wore her long tresses down and in loose, beachy waves. 

Hilary topped off her look with matching tan combat boots, and accessorized with gold stud earrings.

Joining the star for her photo shoot was son Luca, seven, and daughter Banks, one. Mom Susan Duff was also present. 

The star shares Luca with NHL star ex-husband, Mike Comrie, 38. The duo were wed from August 2010 until February 2016.

Meanwhile, the Disney star shares Banks with husband Matthew Koma. The couple wed last December at her home in Los Angeles.

Hilary rose to fame for her role as Lizzie Mcguire in the hit Disney series of the same name. 

A reboot was announced last year, and featured series creator Terri Minsky as showrunner. 

But Disney has decided to move ‘in a different creative direction’ and ousted her from the spot. 

‘Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series,’ a spokesperson for the Mouse House told Variety.  ‘After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the show.’

A replacement has not yet been named.
