Oxfam celebrity supporter, Amanda Holden said, "I like to think I’m pretty stylish when it comes to my dress sense, but that went out the window on this shoot. Today I look like I’ve stepped off the set of some mad 1980’s gameshow thanks to my two girls.
“It’s pretty daunting to think that this is how they wanted to me to look for Dressed by the Kids Day, but it was impossible to say no for such a wonderful cause and we’ve had such fun being involved.”
They were photographed on location at Rankin’s studio in London accompanied by their children who acted as stylists for the day – transforming their looks in a bid to transform lives in poverty.
