The EastEnders star likes a tight fit
‘If I’m just hanging out and chilling I like jogging bottoms, but if I’m going to an event I definitely like to wear a dress,’ she says.
‘Chelsea and I – we do dress alike. She’s the fashionista of Walford and I love fashion, shoes, clothes and big hair – especially anything by American Apparel – I really love that stuff.
‘I just tend to feel more ladylike and sexy in those clothes because everything’s quite tight.
‘I like short stuff as well. I’m happy showing off my legs – I don’t mind showing off any bits really, just as long as it’s not all at the same time.
Tiana, 24, doesn’t understand why she got slated for the purple dress (below) she wore to the National Television Awards.
‘The press said it looked like I’d bought it from [EastEnders character] Stacey’s stall,’ she recalls. ‘But Stacey’s got some nice stuff on her stall… and I’m not even joking!’
What do you think about Tiana’s dress? Hot or not?
