Does the new pale trend mark the end of fake tan?

The days of spending time and effort applying fake tan may be over, as celebrities start ditching the bottle and going for a more natural pale look.Even the latest pictures of Victoria Beckham, the bottled bronzer industry’s most dedicated advocate, show her stripped of her trademark mahogany glow. The pale look has filtered down from the catwalks. Lily Cole, Daisy Lowe, Agyness Deyn and Erin O’Connor all now wear their alabaster skin with pride. Now Sienna Miller, Lindsay Lohan and Girls Aloud’s Sarah Harding have taken down their tans a few notches.

But the fake tan market, worth £41million in the UK, is well prepared. Fake Bake has just launched Fake Bake Fair, its fastest-selling product. ‘Many women crave a soft, delicate tan,’ says chief executive Sandra McClumpha. ‘Even soap stars and WAGs such as Coleen Rooney and Alex Curran have subtle tans.’ St Tropez dubs it the ‘optimistic tan’, adding: ‘This new “no tan” trend perfectly captures the mood of 2009 where it’s not about heavy, dark tans and ostentatious bling, but subtle glamour and enhancement of natural beauty.’ Going back to basics is as much an economic statement as a fashion one. Even if you can afford a holiday, it’s not the done thing to flaunt the proof.

SHE may have kept a low profile in Ibiza while Kate Price was there, but Sarah Harding made up for lost time.
#bodycopy a { font-size: 12px; }

She went wild on the White Isle on the penultimate night of her two-week holiday.
The vodka-necking babe got so drunk at Twice As Nice in Eden nightclub she had to be carried out by security.
We take our hats off to her.
The Girls Aloud star, 27, has been uncharacteristically quiet over the last fortnight.
And we feared there was something wrong with our favourite party pixie.
But the blonde stick of fun was back on the razzle with pals in the Ibiza superclub on Thursday night.
A fellow clubber told us: “Sarah was having a great time, dancing around like a loon, shaking her booty in the VIP section to all the R’n’B and garage tunes.
“Sarah and her six mates were downing champagne and vodka and busting shapes. They ran up a huge bar bill and really let loose, dancing on the sofas and being extremely rowdy.”
The sassbucket was heard saying “It’s so hot in here” as she danced like a mentalist while sucking on a lollipop which stayed in her mouth all night.
Finally, at 3.30am, the legless minx started falling all over the place and had to be carried out by security to the official Eden minibus, which drove her posse back to their villa.
We expect the Harding massive stayed up to watch the sunrise and started on the sangria for breakfast. It breaks our hearts to miss out.

Is that you Agyness? Sarah Harding is a dead ringer for model as she relaxes in Ibiza

Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding was a dead ringer for model Agyness Deyn yesterday as she relaxed on a beach in Ibiza with her boyfriend DJ Tom Crane.
With her trilby hat, spiky blonde hair, dark sunglasses and model figure, Sarah could easily have passed for the Manchester-born 25-year-old as she took in the sun in a black bikini.
The Agyness look was clearly working well for Sarah who looked relaxed and happy as she sipped on a drink and chatted with friends.

At one point the smiling 26-year-old removed her headgear to run her fingers through her messy cut.
She has been holidaying in Ibiza for the past few weeks and the party certainly seems to be the destination of choice for British celebrities this summer.

Alex Curran and Steven Gerrard are both currently holidaying there and Katie Price flew home on Monday after a wild break in the island.
The Ibiza break is a working holiday for DJ Tom, who played at the Hed Kandi night at Space earlier this week.
Although she originally hails from Manchester, Sarah now lives with her boyfriend Tom Crane and their puppy Corker in Camden in North London.
She is currently considering a new career, after making it clear she wants to try her hand at acting.
Top U.S. acting agency William Morris are interested in representing Sarah after seeing her performing in BBC2 drama Freefall, which airs this month.
Girls Aloud will pursue solo projects next year with Sarah and Kimberley Walsh going into acting, Cheryl Cole and Nadine Coyle trying out solo projects, and Nicola Roberts working on her make-up range.

Sarah Aloud to play the fool

GIRLS Aloud beauty Sarah Harding was prepared to ‘make a fool of herself’ while filming her new gritty TV drama, her co-star has said.
The blonde singer was asked to improvise during the filming of BBC drama Freefall, which is about the credit crunch.
Her screen-partner, Mama Mia! actor Dominic Cooper, said on today’s This Morning: “She was great. You have to be prepared to make a fool of yourself, which she absolutely was.”
The 27-year-old blonde plays the beautician wife of a loaded City banker in the TV film, which airs later this year.
Sarah, who described the role as ‘challenging’, has previously acted in the big screen remake of St Trinian’s alongside her Girls Aloud bandmates.
She said that her role in Freefall was very different to what she’s used to.

Seaside glamour: Sarah Harding makes beachwear elegant in a Grecian sundress

A beachside cafe is hardly the most elegant of places - even in the celebrity-studded holiday spot of Ibiza.
But Sarah Harding gave her fellow guests a lesson in how to make beachwear glamorous as she visited the Blue Marlin cocktail bar and cafe on the Spanish Isle.
The 27-year-old proved put her bikini-clad fellow revellers in the shade in a full-length Grecian sundress.

As the GA tour comes to an end, after their very last show in Newcastle, Sarahs fella proves he's a keeper. Old romantic Tommy has organised a party to celebrate the end of the gigs and his beloveds success. He texted all her friends saying 'it would mean the world to Sarah if you could come and party with her'. Weather put a stop to the original plan of a BBQ and rounders at the park so instead they are having a private party at their home. The blonde popstrell has been touring since April so will be ready to let her platinum tresses down.

Sarah Harding shows off her legs in tiny hotpants as she enjoys a day in the park

Having been touring the country since April, Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding is clearly in need of some rest.
So after a gig in Glasgow on Saturday night, the blonde pop star dashed down to London for some quality time with the two males in her life - boyfriend Tom Crane and French bulldog Corker.
The 27-year-old was spotted showing off her tour-honed figure in a tiny pair of denim hotpants and cropped T-shirt as she enjoyed the glorious London weather on Sunday.

Summer love: Sarah Harding, boyfriend Tom Crane and their puppy Corker enjoy a sunny date in London's Hampstead Heath
Sarah and her DJ boyfriend took their puppy for a walk on Hampstead Heath, not far from the couple's Camden home in North London.
The singer insists she has no plans to marry 29-year-old Tom - which will come as music to the ears of Corker.

But, then, Tom could claim that the acquisition of a puppy is down to broodiness.
She said last month: 'Tommy says to me, "So, when are we going to have the real thing?" but my dog Corker is the only baby I feel ready for right now.
'Even my doctor thinks I should get cracking, but there's still so much I want to do and when I have children I want to be able to be at home for them.

Toned: Sarah shows off her flat tummy in a pair of denim hotpants and cropped T-shirt
'I have no idea where [reports of a £2million wedding] came from, but someone’s telling porkies.
'You have to be engaged to plan a wedding. We’re in no rush to get married.'
At any rate, they looked very much like a family as they cuddled on the grass, drinking beers (not Corker) and throwing a ball around together.
Sarah bought Corker as a newborn in February.
Recently, reports surfaced that a top US acting agency is interested in representing Sarah.
After performing in BBC2 drama Freefall, which airs this month, bosses at William Morris Agency are keen to sign her up, a source told The Sun.
Girls Aloud will pursue solo projects next year with Sarah and Kimberley Walsh going into acting, Cheryl Cole and Nadine Coyle trying out solo projects, and Nicola Roberts working on her make-up range


SARAH HARDING will be hoping it's a Long Hot Summer so she can enjoy more days in the park like this. The GIRLS ALOUD singer squeezed in some golden time with boyfriend TOM CRANE and the couple's mutt Claude between the band's Glasgow and Birmingham gigs. Wearing a pair of denim hotpants and Fame-style top, she looked in great shape and happy to be in the company of her two favourite fellas. After playing about with Claude, Sarah cuddled up with Tom and sank a beer as the couple enjoyed the sunshine.

We're surprised the caner pair have ever seen daylight...
