A little black dress... and a big red nose
TV star Kirstie Allsopp admits that she felt a little foolish dressing up as Hollywood star Audrey Hepburn in a photoshoot for Comic Relief.
The Location Location, Location presenter, who has a family home in Devon, donned a black dress and gloves, pearls and a tiara to pose as the late screen beauty.
Kirstie, 41, said that she was "both flattered and terrified in equal measure" when she was asked to recreate Hepburn's famous Breakfast At Tiffany's image to promote new food fundraiser Menu Relief.
She said of the photoshoot: "Someone puts your hair up and you put the pearls on and you find the black dress and put on the gloves and you feel a twit but that's fine.

"If someone ends up going to a restaurant and dining out and donating as a result of the fact that I mucked about pretending to be Audrey Hepburn then that's brilliant. It's a no-brainer."
Ms Allsopp said of Menu Relief: "People are always looking for ways to get on with their day-to-day life and donate. We've got Valentine's Day coming up. It's a big night when people do think about eating out."
The star tweeted about the photoshoot: "Off to shoot for Red Nose Day. They are dressing me up as Audrey Hepburn – Now that is what I call funny £bumthesizeofmyboob".
Over 300 restaurants are taking part in Menu Relief by creating special Red Nose Day menus for the charity.
Fellow TV presenter Claudia Winkleman also endorsed the fundraiser, saying: "For people like me who aren't great at cooking, eating out at a Menu Relief restaurant is the perfect solution.
"My husband gets a great meal out without any burnt bits and I get to enjoy my evening!"
