So You Think You Can Dance Host Cat Deeley
HOMETOWN: Birmingham, England
WHY YOU KNOW HER: She's the bubbly Brit who chats up would-be dance champs on the hit FOX competition, which kicks off its third season May 24.
• On her passion for fashion: One of the reasons fans tune in is to see what beautiful—or over-the-top—confection Deeley is wearing (often paired with bare feet). "French Vogue is my bible. I like beautifully designed and made things," she says. Luckily, "I can borrow things, so my addiction doesn't cause me bankruptcy!"
• On her two left feet: Despite hosting a dance show, "I can't dance!" swears Deeley, a former model and MTV veejay in Britain. "My flailing limbs could take out at least four people. The only time I look good dancing is next to my dad at a wedding."
• On the sexiest scents alive: So much for rumors the single Deeley has stepped out with Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney. "I haven't met either one of them," she says. "Maybe that should be my mission for this year. I'd quite like to know what they smell like at the very least." Clooney's scent? "I bet it's something classic and spicy and gorgeous."
• On being cat-fight ready: She's a Sex and the City fan, but watch out, Sarah Jessica Parker. "When we were doing the last season of Dance, [she] saw me on the show, loved my hair and makeup and wanted to book my team for an event. I got so excited I can't even tell you! But I told them, 'If she starts to take you away from me, I will kick her in the shins. I'm not above it!'"
