TV host Cat Deeley is so in love with a couture Alexander McQueen dress she is going to get it framed because she's scared to wear it out.
The 'So You Think You Can Dance' host splashed out on a very rare creation by the late designer a few years ago but admits she is yet to wear it out and is considering getting it stored in a safe place where she can still admire it.

It was very expensive but it was in the sale and there were only two made."
