We had to confess to never having heard of Kara Tointon when we featured her as a calendar girl back in early 2010. All that changed with her triumphant appearance on Strictly Come Dancing last autumn.
No doubt as she hoped, it re-ignited her career leading to her starring as Eliza Doolittle in the West End production of My Fair Lady for which she picked up stunning reviews; The Daily Telegraph saying that she was "an actress of truly great potential". She is currently working on a feature film.
Whilst she continues to look nice photographed in lingerie her Strictly regime gave her a body that led to some excellent dance-style photographs.
Kara does Flashdance
For Strictly publicity she recreated the role played by Jennifer Beales in Flashdance (bearing in mind that the body in motion in the film was dancer Marine Jahan). Whatever, it showed off her toned thighs to perfection.
No doubt this is what led to this superb set of her in wet dance attire by Shoreditch-based photographer John Wright.
