Ennis's ravishing gown creates buzz at BBC Sports Awards



Jessica Ennis, who has had a stellar year after becoming the golden girl of the 2012 Olympics, seems to be a winner in the fashion stakes as well.

The 26-year-old athlete lead the glamour at the BBC Sports Personality Of The Year Awards on Sunday night, turning up in a ravishing red floor length dress.

Her stunning look even caused a Twitter storm with fans hailing her as the new "rear of the year", taking over from Pippa Middleton.

The younger sister of Duchess Kate has had a flurry of interest since the world saw her derriere in her bridesmaid dress at the royal wedding last year, but the Olympic gold medal winner's appearance at Sunday night's awards has caused online devotees to comment on her physique in droves.

"Move over pippa @J_Ennis is now Queen of the bottom! #spoty," the Daily Mail quoted one fan as writing.

Looking a far cry from her look on the field, Ennis stunned the crowds in the scarlet number.

She completed her look showing off her slender toned waist with a thin black belt around her middle, while she even showed off some skin with the plunging neckline.

Ennis even accessorised to perfection holding a large black clutch with her hair worn down and sleek.

Not usually allowed to wear jewellery during her competitions, she made the most of her glamorous night out with a cute pendant adorning her neck.

And she also came armed with the ultimate accessory -- fiance Andy Hill, who looked proud and dapper in his suit next to her.

"Pippa Middleton is seething with jealousy at all the attention Jessica Ennis's bum is getting on Twitter right now," another fan tweeted.

"How do I vote for Jessica Ennis's bum? #sportspersonality," another tweeted.
