Michelle Keegan wows in super chic emerald dress as she heads out in the sun

MICHELLE Keegan stunned in a super chic emerald dress as she headed out in the April sunshine.

The actress, 33, slipped into the pleated frock for a selfie on Instagram.

Mark Wright's wife looked sensational in the long dress that clung to her curves as she posed in the mirror at home.

She captioned her shot: "Today's the day I'm wearing this beaut"

Brassic star Michelle tagged Very.co.uk in the snap, flagging her collection for the online shop where the green dress sells for £52.

The ex-Corrie star sent fans wild when she unveiled her chicest EVER Very range in new photos.

Michelle posed in a string of pastel and neutral colour pieces earlier this month, including straight leg trousers, dresses, jeans and cardigans.

In one snap, Mark Wright's wife crosses her legs as she sits in the sunshine, revealing her slender figure in a floral skirt and shirt combo.

In another, the sophisticated star sits on the floor and flashes a model smile dressed in a striped cardigan.

But the celeb's sultry ensembles are a far cry from her early days as a soap star.

Michelle was still finding her feet with her personal style back in 2010 when she loved to wear a bodycon dress on the red carpet.

Speaking to Fabulous Digital, fashion expert Harriet Davey said: "Michelle added hoop earrings to every outfit (the bigger the better!) and of course wore the staple bodycon dress and peep toe shoes combo."

But this all changed when TOWIE's Mark Wright in 2012.

The Stockport star reportedly met her Essex leading man in late 2012 when they were both holidaying in Dubai.

Commenting on Michelle's TOWIE makeover, Harriet claims the star was trying to "fit in" among the Essex crowd after quitting Coronation Street.

She said: "When Michelle first got with Mark she fully embraced the Essex style and opted for big bouncy blow-dries and glam dresses.

"Often without realising when you get with a new partner you can dress to fit in with a new lifestyle or friendship group.

"Michelle embracing the glamorous outfits may have been to do with being around the TOWIE cast who always dress to impress."

But after she married Mark in 2016, Michelle's style changed significantly again.

As she settled into life as a married woman, Michelle turned to tailoring to mark this new chapter in her life.

And the timeless houndstooth suit she wore to the ITV Gala in 2016 was a real turning point for the actress - who was starring in Our Girl at the time.

Harriet said: "By this time the actor had been married for just over a year and had really settled into a new, sophisticated look.

"The hair was shorter with a cooler textured feel instead of perfectly styled which showed off her playful side too."
