Red Carpet Wrap: Michelle Keegan

* Keeping the über-orange tan to almost mild levels paid off for sexiest soap star Michelle Keegan, who looked dreamy and romantic in her Gatsby-style, gown by Rachel Gilbert. The sweetheart neckline and sequin stripes adds class to The British Soap Awards red carpet.

* Singer Z Lala lives in LaLa land apparently, according to her Facebook profile. But that’s about all we can find out. All we know is we’re glad we wasn’t sitting next to her at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. And just how did she go to the loo?

* She was there to support husband Justin Timberlake at the premiere of his film Inside Llewyn Davis. However, Jessica Biel ended up being the main attraction at the Cannes Film Festival in a mid-length Marchesa prom dress with feather underskirt and blinging serpent necklace.

* At 56, Jerry Hall still puts most younger women to shame with her effortless style. Casual and simple, this sharp leather biker jacket, cat ballet pumps and blond combo is even cooler when we tell you that this is what she wore to The Chelsea Flower Show.
