Gemma Collins - The Orange Dress.

Hello, Hi, Bonjour, Hola, Ciao, Ola, Namaste ....

It's everywhere, and if you haven't seen or heard about this story - where have you been? 
Now, what I am about to say might spark some controversy but like always, I am not one to shy away from some backlash. 

Gemma was recently spotted wearing an Orange number from Gerda Truubon the bespoke London based Ladies wear Fashion Designer. 

Now, I can appreciate this is most definitely not one of her best looks. I think the amount of backlash she has received from wearing this is totally disgusting. Personally, I wouldn't be seen dead in the dress. I think it does nothing for her figure, and most definitely clashes with her tan BUT at the same time, lets cover a few important points... 

Its Gemma Collins | since when did she care about what anyone thinks. She has always been bullied (yes, a strong word but I believe this is the case) for being different, and when I say different I mainly mean - plus size. I honestly do not think it matters what she wears, she has such a huge amount of people who dislike her, she would be talked about. 

Is It The Dress | again, following from the above point. I think we should all ask ourselves, that if someone else was wearing the dress, would we pay it as much attention? Would we compliment the dress, designer and whom was wearing it? Is it the dress? or is it Gemma Collins? 

She Appears Happy | I get that she's in the limelight, I get that she isn't going to go out on purpose knowingly to be papped, and be sad and misreable - BUT she looks happy does she not? Even more so in her 'selfie' which was posted on her Instagram. If she felt uncomfortable, or hideous (some of the things I have seen being said about her) then surely she would not of worn it out? If she was feeling herself, sassy and bloody got daym hot then let her be. 

It's Not The Worst Thing She's Been Seen Wearing | lets be real, its as simple as it gets. We have seen Gemma looking a lot worse than this, she has been seen in all different lights, in all sorts of outfits and I honestly think, she has looked worse. 

It's All About The Angles | lets be brutal - she actually looks half decent in her Instagram photo. Which, as you can see has been taken at a flattering angle. She has probably taken 50+ photographs and chosen the one she likes best (which we all do - right?) of course the papped photos are going to look awful, its what the paparazzi are good at. It's what they get paid for!  I could lay money on the fact that if we saw the exact same dress on a skinnier model, half the people shutting her down would want contact details on where to order the god damn dress. 

Her 'Friends' | I have seen alot of comments about her 'friends' and to be honest, I must agree. I personally would not have let my friend go out like that, but again, touching on the above points. She does what she likes, she might of felt beautiful and confident, so who are we to judge?  

What do you think about the dress?
Are you a fan of Gemma?
