Hope there is no portrait of her.  That first one of her was dreadful, and the sad thing was that it typified her 100%.  That artist brought out the real council cath, and it was not a pretty sight.   What does she know about art and portraits anyway,  do they teach that sort of thing on Towie?   Never watch it so I would not know.  Maybe she has had lessons in paint by numbers, getting a bit of practice in with her colouring books she is so mad about.  Her photographic work was rubbisn, her photoshopping of sprog photos so obvious a blind man could notice.  Wonder if she will ask can you tell it is paint by the smell, or some such daft remarks as she is prone to doing.  That woman shouild not be let out, she is not safe to foist on to the public.

Her eyes are dead, just as they are in real life as well.

I don't know why her PR team force this art gallery thing on her because she has no idea of it and isn't interested in it.

I emailed Paul Emsley several years ago to say that I found his work masterful, in that it revealed the ruthless, cold ambition in Kate. Obviously he was as tactful as possible but he didn't disagree at all and found my interpretation very interesting.

That angle is so good.

I think she should have used this one in France not that ugly blue thing.

I agree and do prefer the stronger bolder colours on her.

An improvement.

The video highlights how disturbingly emaciated she is. Really awful and shocking to see, she looks like a stick with a mop of hair on top. In pics it's obvious, but videos... goodness! Can you imagine what she looks like in person? When kids "hug" her, you must hear her skeleton clattering, must feel like hugging a bag of bones.

The dress is literally what she has already ten times over. Always the same.
New earrings (which I don't like, at least not the gargantuan colourless dangly part), look like kiki mcdough or whatshername.

I actually think she looks bigger than she has in years (aside from being pregnant).  Much improved. I like the dress and colour.

^^  Yes, rake thin, and I think she has worn that frock a couple of times, or something very similar.  She is so heavily plastered with make up it is amazing it does not melt off and trickle down her face.  She looks such a mess these days, as if she is up crying all night and every night.  The eyes are still dead as a dodo, she has no presence at all.  Few turn up for her.  A disastrous looking female who looks like a broom stick with green lace over it.

Everyone please note that in several of these photos the Potato Head's man hand is sliding down to her crotch. Why can't' she keep her nasty humongous hands away from that thing?

^^  Have to agree to disagree on that one.  Yes, I think Alexa is very very slim, but she is not emaciated like council cath, her shoulder blades are nowhere near as sharp as a knife like those of council cath either.  She also has a much slighter frame and does not look ill and gaunt like council cath.  Both females need meat on their bones that much is obvious.  Obviously both like looking mega slim.
