Darcey Bussell wears bespoke Caroline Castigliano gown to Strictly Launch
Handcrafted from weighty crepe, the streamlined, boned bodice featured a rounded V-neck front and plunging V-neck back. The fitted waist was accentuated with a detachable leather backed belt with the skirt skimming over the hips, flaring into a flattering fishtail silhouette, with an elegant train at the back.
All of this year’s celebrity contestants donned their sequins for the first time on Monday night, taking to the red carpet for the show’s launch event alongside hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly, the professional cast and judges Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood. This is the first time we’ve seen the new cast appear together ahead of the show’s first airing on Saturday 8 September.
