It's double frock horror for Vanessa Feltz and daughter Allegra

By Daily Mail Reporter

Double frock horror: Vanessa Feltz and daughter Allegra appeared to have taken fashion advice from Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie at a dinner last night

Vanessa Feltz has never been the most stylish of women, but now it seems her daughter Allegra might be following in her mother's footsteps.

The pair appeared to have been taking fashion advice from Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie as they arrived at a charity dinner in London last night.

While Vanessa, 49, poured her curves into a tight asymmetric dress, Allegra opted for a pink and white frilly number which did little to flatter her figure.

And their accessories didn't do much to boost their outfits either, as Vanessa chose to team her dress with peep-toe boots, making her legs appear a lot shorter than they are, while Allegra opted for bridal-like ivory shoes and matching bag.

However, the mother-and-daughter duo appeared unaware of their sartorial faux pas, and smiled widely for photographers as they posed outside Nobu in Park Lane following a Tomodachi charity dinner to raise money for the Japanese Disaster Appeal.

The pair are often photographed attending various events together, and Allegra, 24, whose father is Vanessa's ex-husband Michael Kurer, has an incredibly close relationship with her mother.

Vanessa's fiancé Ben Ofoedu was also at the event last night, looking smart in a grey suit with black shirt.

The pair, who got engaged in December 2006, had been planning to marry in 2007 but then delayed the wedding due to the economic effects of the credit crunch.

Now, Ben says the pair are planning to have married by the end of the year, revealing: 'We are hoping to get married at the end of the year and are also planning to adopt a baby.'

In a recent interview, former Phats and Small frontman Ben said the pair are looking forward to expanding their family further.

He said: 'One of Vanessa’s biggest regrets was that she didn’t have any more children.

'And I would love to be a dad so we are putting the plans in motion to adopt after our wedding.

'Whether it will be from the UK or abroad we don’t yet know.

'I’m Nigerian so I would like to adopt from Africa but I don’t think we’ll be turning into a British Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie just yet.'

Other celebrities to attend last night's charity dinner included Eliza Doolittle, who looked pretty in a girly pink and grey minidress, and Beverley Knight.

Doolittle has been working hard to promote her self-titled debut album and most recent single Mr Medicine.

Talking recently about her ambitions for the future, Doolittle said: 'I’d love to be able to sing around the world and be able to travel with my music.

'I do want to be myself but I look up to someone like Carole King. Everyone covers her songs and she’s respected.

'That’s something that I aim for and it’s something to work towards.
