We know we weren’t the only ones who had the Kleenexes ready and got a huge sense of national pride while watching the Sports Personality of the Year last night.

Jessica Ennis, who has been the poster girl for the remarkable spectacle that was the London 2012 Olympics, didn’t let us down with her appearance at the ceremony. While other Brit girls like cyclist Victoria Pendleton and swimmer Rebecca Adlington played it safe with black frocks, Jess went for all-out glam in a stunning red gown courtesy of Victoria Beckham.

Queen Vicky has a tendency to reign supreme when it comes to a fashion face-off with other celebs in her designs, but we think Jessica totally held her own on this occasion. We will even go as far as saying she rocked it better than VB ever could… there’s something about those Olympian curves that fill the dress out rather flawlessly.

We told you a few weeks ago that Jessica was keen to carve a career in fashion, and if last night was anything to go by, we don’t think it’ll be too long before the offers come flooding in. Well done to Jessica and all our Olympians for making us very proud Brits this summer!
