Former ballerina Darcey Bussell appeared on Strictly Come Dancing's (the original of what is knownn as Dancing with the Stars in the US and eleswhere) results show in an unusually short dress last night which has caused a bit of a stir as she looked sensational.
The clingy number showed a lot of Darcey's magnificent legs and no doubt there will be a run on them at Miss Selfridge today, as a result. It's surprising that she went to a high street shop for the number but it is a perfect exemplar of the adage that it's not what you wear but how you wear it.
Triple P has seen Miss Bussell (now, amazingly, 45 years old) dance in her prime at Covent Garden and even sat opposite her at lunch once once so she remains our own prima ballerina assoluta. This black and white shot is, to our mind, the best one of her and says everything about the body conditioning required of a top dancer.
