Gemma Collins is not exactly known for being a wallflower and her choice of outfit to visit the Chelsea Flower Show was nothing less than we would have expected from the diva herself.
The former Towie star, 40, made a less than lowkey appearance at the annual gardening event this week, donning a yellow bedazzled cloak so extravagant that the designer had to walk behind her at points, carrying the train.
Gemma wore a pale pink gown underneath the cloak, pink platform trainers and gave a nod to the event with a large pink flower ring on her finger.
Her hair was piled on top of her head in a stylish up-do as she was seen quaffing champagne as she browsed the gardens.
Gemma took to Instagram to tell her followers: ‘Happiest amongst the plants @the_rhs what a beautiful day everyone should make the time to come and visit the Chelsea flower show ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.’
She also revealed that she is committed to wearing sustainable garments, explaining: ‘If it’s not SUSTAINABLE then I’m not wearing it!!!!

‘Guys we all need to be wearing sustainable clothes, it’s great for the planet. It’s time to change this, make this world a better place for our children and our children’s children.
‘Heal the world make it a better place, we must respect our planet more then ever. It’s the right thing to do be conscious of your future #getsustainablewithme.’ (sic)
Gemma also took to her story to share her favourite instalments from the show, admitting she was glad there was ‘not a geranium in sight’.
Stopping at a shed elaborately decorated with neon lights, pink bunting and palm leaves, she told her fans: ‘I want this in my garden!
‘It’s absolutely… this is my award at the Chelsea Flower Show, guys. This is a space where I couldn’t believe it if somebody wasn’t happy in here.
‘It is absolutely out of this world. Guys. Beautiful!’
Gemma is no stranger to a garden makeover herself as she has been sharing the progress of her enormous backyard at her Essex mansion over the past few months.
The reality star even had to enlist her manager to help her water the trees at the bottom of the vast plot as her hose was not long enough to reach all the way down.
