A gorgeous set of curves are always something to be celebrated.
Sadly it appears Natalie Cassidy missed the mark somewhat.
The 28-year-old actress attended the Curves Couture Models Of Diversity show in Notting Hill last night wearing a corseted disaster which did nothing to flatter her lovely figure.
The dress comprised what looked like a leather upper half, with tulle attached above the knee to produce a vaguely mermaid-like shape.
Misfire: Natalie Cassidy's outfit to the Models of Diversity Curves in Couture show at the Tabernacle in Notting Hill was not one of her best
Two chunky black sashes added unnecessary bulk, with odd gold embellishments contributing to the general distraction.
A gold necklace, earrings and matching bracelet continued the colour theme, but unfortunately aggravated the generally messy effect.
Overdone it: The combination of Natalie's chunky sash, gold necklace, earrings, and the gold lace embellishment on her dress made for a messy result
The style mishap was a shame, since Natalie is arguably in the best shape of her life.
The star dropped a remarkable three stone after parting ways from fiancé Adam Cottrell in May - and appears to have kept off most of the weight.

But taking control again, she has stabilised herself at a healthy 9st 7lb.
Natalie said at the time: ‘I have been a size six, I’ve been a size 16 – bordering on an 18.
'But I am a size 10 now, and I feel that I am the weight I should be.’

Cottrell later pleaded guilty to assault and criminal damage and now has a restraining order under his name.
District Judge Ian Baker banned him from driving for 18 months and sentenced him to a 12-month community order with 60 hours' unpaid work.

Natalie came close to making an appearance on this year's series of I'm A Celebrity Get me Out Of Here, but decided against it due to childcare commitments.
A friend said before the show: 'Natalie is very keen, but does have some worries about childcare for Eliza, who dotes on her mum.'
