Britain’s Got Talent judge and new mum, Alesha Dixon, has slipped back into her dancing shoes for a dance-inspired photo shoot to showcase Teal as 2014’s Colour of the Year – predicted by the team at leading paint brand, Dulux.



Teal has become a real fashion and interior favourite for 2014, already making its mark on recent Hollywood red carpets and awards ceremonies; Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman wore Teal at the Golden Globes, Cate Blanchett at the Critics’ Choice Awards, Sandra Bullock at the Screen Guild Awards, Jessie J and Kat Graham at the Grammys.

To celebrate the announcement of Teal (Sea Urchin 1) as the Colour of the Year, Dulux is offering a limited supply of free testers, which can be ordered online through using the code SEAURCHIN1.

The story behind the shoot
Surrounded by silver birch, Alesha tells the story of the bird’s transformation from a shy fluffy duckling, hiding among the bulrushes into a beautiful and graceful Teal duck.

Set designer Alun Davies and fashion stylist Katy Lassen worked together to create a stunning layered outfit comprising a full white feathered cape, which, once shed showcases custom-made, multi-tonal feathered collar and shoulder pieces that add exaggerated colour and movement to a structured Teal dress.
