Reality Replica: Katherine Jenkins

May 15, 2012 05:16 AM by Kim Grundy

Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins has the moves on Dancing with the Stars – and has the style off the dance floor, as well. Katherine was spotted in this feminine frock as she and her dance partner, Mark Ballas, were making an appearance on Good Morning America. We have rounded up similar items so you can replicate her fresh, spring look.

What’s the secret to Katherine’s chic style? She told Cosmopolitan UK that she has learned to dress for her body type.

“I try and dress in things that suit my body shape because I’m quite curvy,” she said. “I really love cute little dresses.  I’m far more of a dress girl than jeans. Day dresses are good because you can still feel girlie without feeling over-the-top.”

The Welsh beauty stays true to her style in this floral belted sundress paired with peep-toe wedges that show off her tan. Copy her look in this Disty Floral Belted Surplice Dress from Forever 21 that is a great bargain at only $19.80.  This dress features a sexy v-neckline and feminine full skirt that will flatter your curves.

Belted dresses are a huge trend this season and you can wear this look by pairing your own belt to a dress to create an entirely new look. The Lush Print Blouson Dress from Nordstrom ($44) would look great paired with a leather belt and would give you a fresh look like Katherine’s chic style.

Katherine spices up her look with coral wedge sandals that highlight the warm colors in her dress. She said she often opts for heels over flats. “I do like to wear little sandals in the summer but with most things I put heels on because I LOVE shoes,” she says.

Copy her look with the Manngo by Steve Madden wedge sandals from Piperlime ($80).  These bestselling shoes would look great paired with sundresses, Capri pants or shorts and will give you an instant leg-lengthening look. Speaking of shoes, Katherine confessed during her Good Morning America interview that she is superstitious and always puts her right shoe on before her left shoe for good luck!

To draw attention to her lovely face, she wears eye-catching drop earrings with coral stones that work with the colors in her dress beautifully.  These chic drop earrings (Amerson, $12) from Aldo feature coral and turquoise stones with a gold setting and would be the perfect accent to your flirty, floral dress.

Her golden tan sets off her sunny look perfectly. We know the Dancing with the Stars contestants are professionally spray-tanned on a regular basis, however you can get that same look at home with Neutrogena Micro-Mist Airbrush Sunless Tan ($10, drug stores). Make sure you exfoliate before to ensure a smooth and streak-free look.

Lastly, Katherine says that confidence can take your look from so-so to super-sexy! “I think you have to be comfortable in what you’re wearing,” she says. “Stick to what you know works and what you feel comfortable with and that comes across. Confidence is one of the sexiest things.”
