Natasha Kaplinsky and Welsh opera star Katherine Jenkins proved Hollywood style is not restricted to the other side of the pond, as they turned up the glam factor in stunning gowns at Breast Cancer Care's annual fashion show on Wednesday.

BBC Breakfast presenter Natasha was resplendent in a rose-hued gown with plunging décolleté while new husband Justin Bower picked up the charity's signature colour in a pink satin bow tie which perfectly complemented her gown.

Mezzo soprano Katherine, whose beloved father Selwyn died from cancer, was also on sizzling form. The curvaceous 24-year-old, who was Britain's biggest selling classical artist of 2004, showed she's much more than a stupendous voice as she delivered an A-list performance in a figure-hugging number in aquamarine silk.

All the models appearing on the catwalk have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and were taking part in the event to underline the fact that a diagnosis doesn't mean a death sentence.

"This event is about celebrating the beauty and courage of those who have been affected by breast cancer," explained Natasha. "Every single person taking to the catwalk is an inspiration to us all."

Earlier in the day all the models, who were dressed by top British designers and high street stores, participated in a photocall, before going on to strut their stuff at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. They included the only male in their number, Michael Burns, who is one of 290 men diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK.
