Episode 2, The Bachelor: Tabby Richards still the style fave

So who else is well addicted to The Bachelor? It’s such a welcome distraction in the absence of Made in Chelsea. I’m still tipping Tabby for the top, but isn’t it awful having to watch Spencer snog other girls (namely Jess) when Tabby is clearly the one for him? I could have never been a contestant on that show. Or a Mormon. Two things I cannot share; men and clothes.

A romantic dinner for two – but Spencer had only just climbed out of a tongue-tastic hot tub with Jess

Talking of clothes, there was a bit more to see of Tabby’s style in episode 2 and it was a mixed bag…

On the (simmering) Romeo and Juliet photo shoot, and during dinner with Spencer, she looked utterly elegant, first in a white dress and then in a stunning asymmetric teal gown with a tie at the shoulder. I suspect that good old Mr. Gammon, stylist on the show, has chosen those stunning dresses on Tabby’s behalf. They seem quite at odds with her “off-duty” style, which is rocky and slightly ill-judged.

I loved the red and black floral blouse she wore for the helicopter trip, and you’ll never hear me knocking a classic pair of Converse, but what were the granny pants all about?? She has a great figure, but the black hip-huggers didn’t do her any favours.

Not too sure about those “shorts” (or are they knickers?) Tabby

But I’m not in the business of slagging off other women’s style – and Tabby is by far my favourite. She’s only 24 (when I was that age I was wearing Spice Girl-style platform trainers) and I love the grunge-led glimpses of her look that we’ve had so far.

If you’re loving Tabby’s style too, you might fancy one of the following:
