Style Star: Cat Deeley

Besides So You Think You Can Dance? being one of my favorite shows and getting a high off of great dancing/choreography, anxiously waiting to see what host Cat Deeley wears is the highlight of the program. An avid vintage collector and fashionaholic, Cat not only has the model body to pull off the most fabulous designs (she was one in fact), but she also has a natural talent for styling. The looks she showcases (and struts!) on the SYTYCD? each have wonderful personality to them and she never repeats the same look twice. Switching from 70's glam attire to pretty frocks to bohemian treads, Cat keeps us on our toes. Which brings me to my next admiration...her sky scrapers, often pain inducing, high high heels. Louboutins, McQueen, Choo....the list goes on and so do her legs when rocking them all. I always feel bad for the tiny dancers when the stand next to her getting their critiques, as she towers over them (and their crazy costumes). So here's to Cat Deeley for bringing fresh fashion to TV and dance!
