It’s a show that is famed for it’s outfits as well as it’s talent, and tonight (Tuesday) the ladies of Srictly Come Dancing proved why.
Victoria Pendleton, Kimberley Walsh and Denise Van Outen showed off their incredible figures at the launch of the series in London, and their outfits just so happened to be drenched in tassels.
Pendleton, 31, arrived at the event wearing a barely-there glitzy gold outfit, and just so happened to be carrying her gold medals too.

She was matching Walsh in the outfit department, as she too chose to wear a gold ensemble that featured cut-out detailing.
As Pendleton smiled for the cameras and held up her latest achievements, it was clear to see that the brunette didn’t need to hold her stomach in.
She teamed her tasseled garment with gold strapped shoes and completed her look with statement earrings.
Girls Aloud singer, Walsh, didn’t show off as much of her stomach but did flash her leg with a thigh-high split.

She was followed on the red carpet by Denise Van Outen who looked simply stunning in a silver tasseled dress.
The mother-of-one wore her blonde hair in a side ponytail and sported red lipstick as she flashed a huge grin for photographers.
