Lauren Goodger cuts sophisticated figure as she makes VERY bronzed appearance in Liverpool


She recently came under fire for photo-shopping her snaps on Instagram

But brushing off her critics, Lauren Goodger looked simply stunning as she cut a sophisticated figure while attending the launch of Dash Restaurant and Bar in Liverpool on Thursday night. 

The former TOWIE star, 32, slipped her curvaceous frame into a chic bandeau dress, while flaunting a deep tan as she joined a host of reality stars at the bash.

Lauren shunned her usually scanty ensembles for a stylish little black dress that made sure to highlight her enviable frame. 

Its bandeau neckline framed the beauty’s bust before skimming over her gym-honed hour-glass shape and sitting just below the knee. 

Keeping things simple for her outing in Liverpool, Lauren chose to leave her decolletage bare and sported a pair of clear perspex heels on her feet. 

She wore her darkened locks in voluminous curls that were swept over to one side and favoured a heavy make-up look that came complete with mascara-laden lashes and plenty of eye-liner.

Lauren’s appearance in Liverpool comes after she was forced to admit she had altered a photo of herself and Marnie Simpson she shared to Instagram. 

Fans accused the star of ‘editing her photos to look thinner’, as her leg appeared skewed, prompting Lauren to admit that she had re-touched her snap.

Defending her decision to do so, the beauty shared an impassioned message with her fans as she uploaded before and after shots of the photo in question. 

She explained: ‘Women should empower one another! Embrace what we have .. we aren’t all perfect! I wouldn’t care about filters/edit brightening or darkening a photo for the gram ..

‘This is me and I’m happy and proud who I am I’m a healthy body shape and size .. I work out and I have a flat stomach and thick thighs .. We are all different shapes and sizes .. But I take it all as a compliment [sic].’

Lauren is often seen documenting her work outs and various stays at a boot camp overseas, as she has been focused on honing her frame in recent months. 

She has also turned her attentions to new business ventures and revealed in November she is planning on launching her very own dating app. 

The reality star  – who recently split from ex-con boyfriend Joey Morrisson – joked that she was hoping to find a man for herself as well as her fans.  

Lauren posted on social media: ‘Making my own dating app!!! Girls and guys keep eyes peeled! I’m going to find you (and me) love’.

The star has been making the most of her single status since her bitter split from Joey and admitted she had enlisted the help of life coach, Michelle Zelli, to help her to stop choosing the wrong guys after a string of failed relationships.

Discussing the issue in her Now magazine column, she said: ‘Hopefully, she can stop me going for the wrong men all the time. I know where it all stems from.’

Lauren was devastated when she split from her jailbird ex Joey in July, following a two year romance conducted while he was behind bars.

Joey was given a 16-year prison sentence for a string of violent offences, but was released after nine years.

Lauren and Joey split close to his release date amid claims he sent a slew of x-rated snaps to other women from his prison cell.

Previously Lauren had dated Jake McLean from 2012 on and off but they parted ways for good in 2016, with her branding the romance ‘toxic.

She told OK! at the time: ‘My last relationship [with Mark Wright] was toxic and I jumped straight into a relationship with Jake and that turned out to be toxic, too.

‘I don’t want that again. I want to find pure love with someone who has nothing but respect for me – until then I’m going to concentrate on myself.

‘I don’t mean to sound horrible but I’m relieved it’s over.’

Lauren and Mark called off their engagement in May 2011, after just five months, but they had been dating for ten years beforehand. Their tumultuous relationship played out on screen on the early series of ITVBe series The Only Way Is Essex.
