The former Hollyoaks star, Roxanne McKee, has been chosen as the face of this year’s Clothes Show Live.
Clothes Show Live 2009, to be held at the Birmingham NEC, December 4th-9th, will mark the 21st birthday of the fashion extravaganza.
Roxanne ‘Roxy’ McKee, is a British actress, model and university graduate, who was discovered after taking part in “Hollyoaks On the Pull”, a Channel 4 talent initiative to discover new talent for the popular soap opera. She was then cast as Louise Summers, and in 2007 took the top prize as Sexiest Woman on TV at the British Soap Awards. She left the role at the end of last year.
Aged 28, McKee had always wanted to be an actress but completed a BA Degree in Politics at Royal Holloway, University of London, so she would always have something to fall back on.
“I’m very flattered to be part of such a huge event,” she said of her starring role at Clothes Show Live 2009.
A keen fashion addict, she believes the secret of individual style is to always wear clothes in which you feel comfortable and which reflect your personality.
Clothes Show Live is the largest public event of its type, under one roof, in Europe. It features a 6,500-seat fashion theatre, designer catwalk shows, celebrity appearances and the opportunity to shop for top fashion labels, vintage pieces and the latest beauty bargains ahead of the Christmas high street rush.
