Britain’s Jessica Ennis Rocks Alexander McQueen To Celebrate Her Gold
Track and field gold medalist Jessica Ennis is quite possibly the world’s fastest fashionista. She showed up to a VIP event at Omega House in London wearing a lovely coral Alexander McQueen frock, which means she just won some real style cred.
She accessorized the dress perfectly with a simple black belt, a low side bun, and what we assume is an Omega watch (they’re the official timekeeper of the Olympics and were the ones throwing the party). Very Kate Middleton-like! This may be a different look for the runner, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t as chic as possible while competing — her sports kit is Stella McCartney. Ennis told Grazia how she plans to celebrate her win:
“I’m definitely going to treat myself to something nice. I’m looking forward to going shopping and splashing out on a nice bag or nice shoes, or some clothes … a bit of everything really! I like high street shops like French Connection and Reiss, but I love going to Selfridges — I could spend a whole day there! I love Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Victoria Beckham. There are just so many gorgeous things out there at the moment and I’m looking forward to having a good look and treating myself.”
Go for it, girl. You’ve earned it. Some of these Olympians have serious style! (Not you, Ryan Lochte.)
