Katherine Jenkins Makes Her Oxford Union Appearance In Serious Shift Dress

The blonde was at the University to host a talk about her career after parting ways with her record company of five years. Awks.

From the looks of things Katherine meant business as she rocked up to the union gates in a corporate blue shift by Kate Spade New York and patent heels. With her long tresses scraped back into a sensible undo, Kath could've stepped right out of Lord Sugar's boardroom.

The only thing that didn't match her conservative look was her face of heavy makeup. Well, nothing says "I'm ready for an intellectual debate" like loads of black eyeliner. *Rolls eyes*.
