Kate Garraway and Claire Nasir dress up as two of the world’s sexiest pop stars (Kylie Minogue and Jessie J) exclusively in this week’s Closer magazine.
Kate and Claire dressed up as their favourite divas to promote Kate’s new business, www.goodypass.com, a new website that gives real people the chance to live a celebrity lifestyle for less with 50-70% discounts on fashion, travel and entertainment.
At 43, and mother to five-year-old Darcey and 20-month-old William, it’s little wonder Kate is nervous about recreating one of Kylie’s most iconic poses. “I’m certainly no Kylie Minogue,” she grins.
Size 10, 5ft 3 Kate, who looks stunning in the revealing white hooded dress à la Kylie’s Can’t Get You Out Of My Head video, confesses that although she’s not entirely body confident, she’s become increasingly comfortable in her own skin. “When you have children you accept your figure is going to change forever, but with that comes a new confidence in how amazing your body can be.”
Proudly posing in a skimpy Jessie J-style leotard, former GMTV weathergirl Clare Nasir is unrecognisable from the size 16 woman whose infamous workout pictures prompted a complete body overhaul. But 5ft 1, size 6 Clare, 40, who lost nearly 3st in just four months, admits to being nervous about channelling Jessie J’s sexy style in a body-con leotard and bondage tights. “I’ve worked hard to detach myself from photos that caused me huge embarrassment,” she says. “If this shoot goes wrong, I’ll be right back where I started!”
Clare, who now presents the weather on London Tonight, is a fan of the Price Tag singer, saying: “She has such energy and an incredible voice.” Despite her new figure and body confidence, Clare doubted she could pull off such a look. “Jessie’s so in your face. I felt good though – like a diva!” she says.
