Denise Van Outen has turned a corner, we're convinced of it.
The hair, the air of confidence, the don't-touch-what-you-can't-afford street strut. This is the face (and wardrobe) of someone who's moving on... and up.
The TV presenter's personal life might be in turmoil (following her recent split from her husband of four years, Lee Mead), but nothing's getting in the way of her stonking post-split style and effortless break-up beauty. It's the kind of therapy that really speaks our language - retail therapy... and perhaps the odd bit of me-time to get the essentials done, like a new hairdo, a manicure, a relaxing facial. We could go on.
Wednesday's sighting of Denise and her daughter Betsy was quite possibly her best see-what-you're-missing look yet. The 39-year-old wore an eye-catching hot pink cover-up with high side splits, which she teamed with funky cobalt flats and matching polish. Add a nude Prada tote, sleek gold extras and oversized sunnies and this is one outfit that shouts 'NEXT'!
We can't wait to see what she trots out for her next outing.
