Week 7 saw Strictly Come Dancing going to Wembley with the dancing themed on The Decades. After all the hype it was disappointing with the huge size of Wembley and the production over-whelmed the dancing. The venue was too big and noisy and the intimacy of SCD was lost. Blackpool next year please! However the costumes never disappoint and here are the Fashion Police views:
Best Dress of the Week: Natalie Lowe. Score 9.
A gorgeous goddess dancing with Michael Vaughan in the American Smooth. The dance was overmarked but the dress made up for it.
Best Dance of the Week: Denise Van Outen and James Jordan. Score 10.
Wonderful theatrical costume in stunning blue and gold for the Charleston dance with fab Egyptian headdress. Queen Nefertiti would have approved.
Best Couple of the Week: Dani Harmer and Vicent Simone. Score 10
A partnership made in heaven and the couple I enjoy most. The Quickstep was wonderful and they used the floor of Wembley to the best of their ability. Loved the 60’s outfit in pink.
Blooper of the Week: Lisa Riley. Score 3.
Lisa looked like an orange and pink tasselled lampshade doing her Samba dance. She’s a vivacious girl and is totally loveable. We hope she stays in the competition for a long time.
Worry of the Week: Louis Smith
He and Flavia Cacace just don’t have chemistry! I thought Louis should be in the final but am now having doubts. Watch this space.
No surprise Richard Arnold was voted off this week, it was his time to go. Next week it should be Victoria Pendleton. Yes, I know she’s the nation’s sweetheart and a stunner but she is rather wobbly at dancing which is a surprise. She certainly didn’t wobble on her bike.
Looking forward to next week.
