Multiple Who What Wear Team Members Have a Secret Obsession With Michelle Keegan

Is it weird that I’m admitting to an obsession over a TV star? Probably. Maybe. Definitely a little bit. When I mentioned that I’d been admiring Michelle Keegan’s style for a while, EIC Hannah Almassi admitted she’d been doing the same. If you’re not sure who Michelle Keegan is, I can tell you everything you need to know. I don’t even need to consult her Wikipedia page. The actress got her big break in Coronation Street, and since she left the soap in 2013, she’s starred in Our Girl and Tina & Bobby, and this week her new TV show Brassic has started.

While she's proved her acting credentials winning various awards, it's her style that I think has been overlooked for far too long. Firstly, she is an expert in wearing stunning red carpet gowns and looks. What I love is that she isn’t just about gorgeous bejewelled dresses or pretty prom frocks, she also loves some great tailoring. Hot pink suits and fitted jumpsuits are often paired with classic stiletto heels. For the "less glamorous” events (although, she really always does look impeccable), she loves jeansankle boots and a nice top worn.

When she’s on holiday, she goes into supermodel mode and shows off an array of incredible swimwear pieces and floaty dresses. More recently, she’s been wearing a minimalist wardrobe of muted colours which has got a big thumbs up from the whole Who What Wear team. Ultimately, she never overcomplicates her style. And while I know my personal style is quite different, I fully appreciate observing the style of someone who’s so polished, as I know there are more than a few lessons to learn.
