It's natural to feel a pang of jealousy when a friend tries on your clothes and looks better than you do. And the envy is only be amplified if the person bringing your look to life is a member of the opposite sex. Claire Richards found herself in such a scenario when Rylan Clark tried on her red gown ahead of a special black tie dinner in the Celebrity Big Brother house.
The X Factor star pouted and posed in the one strap red gown, and seemed think he looked quite nice, if his serene expression was anything to go by. Claire joined in the fun by trying on a dinner shirt and bow tie - but her sideways glance at the bearded pop wannabe showed she wasn't convinced that the formal look was for her. Similarly, Claire's red dress, which had diamante detailing on the hip, bulked up naturally slim Rylan.
However, the hue of the glamorous frock managed to enhance the Essex lad's tan. When Rylan first entered the Celebrtiy Big Brother house three weeks ago, he was in absolute awe of Claire. When he faced her in public eviction he was distraught that he had been pitted against an icon of pop, and one of his personal heroes. Since then the pair have struck up a genuine friendship that viewers have enjoyed watching develop and deepen.
Later when Claire put the red dress on, it clung to her generous curves, and gently skimmed over her hips in a flattering manner. She also did her make-up perfectly, a pout of scarlet lipstick and gentle curls giving her a gentile, retro look. The housemates were required to dress in their finery ready for a special black tie dinner that the show's producers organised to mark their last night in the house.
