Carol Vorderman: I'm nearly 50, to hell with what people think

Thursday June 3, 2010

As she prepares to celebrate her milestone birthday, 49-year-old Carol Vorderman has revealed she doesn't let remarks about how she looks bother her.

"I’m 50 later this year, and to hell with what other people think of how I look. The Alexander McQueen dress I wore recently to an awards ceremony was figure-hugging, but so what?" the maths whizz says.

And the former Countdown star, who is known as one of Victoria Beckham's greatest fashion fans, has explained just why she chooses Posh frocks.

"I think Victoria Beckham’s range is one of the few making dresses and skirts that go below the knee, while still being fashionable.

"They’re not cheap, but I can still wear them years later without looking dated. It’s simple Forties styling. Above the knee is fine if you’re in your 20s, but I don’t feel it’s overly appropriate at my age."
