ALEX Scott and Maya Jama are two rising stars of British television and it seems the celeb pals are exchanging fashion tips too.
Over the weekend, football pundit Alex, 38, stunned with a red PVC outfit at Soccer Aid, with fans branding it “perfection” and joking she was “brave” in the midst of a heatwave.
But eagle-eyed fans noted that the PVC number was similar to a vinyl midi dress Maya, 28, recently modelled for PrettyLittleThing.
The Love Island host and former Arsenal Women legend have been pals for years and presented the charity celeb football match together before.
Asked about potentially playing in a game herself this time around, Alex said: “Maya Jama threw it out there last year, and I said to her straight away: ‘If you’re going to step on the pitch, I will step on the pitch’, and we had a bit of a bet about it.”
Until we see them in matching footie kits, it appears they are taking inspiration from each others’ dazzling array of outfits too.
The duo starred at Soccer Aid in 2021 and Maya was particularly praised for her stylish flared peach suit.
One year later, Alex sported a similar orange number while commentating for the BBC at the World Cup.
The outfit caused a stir after she shared a photo of herself in the studio on Instagram and tagged the designer Reiss.
Alex received a dressing down from the Beeb because it was seen as promoting the company while she was working as a brand ambassador for the fashion label.
Cut it out
Back in February, Maya made jaws drop after debuting a bewitching red cut-out dress on Love Island.
On Twitter, one fan gushed that she had “no right being that flawless” and another added: “Maya in that red hot dress should be illegal.”
And just two days later, Alex was spotted in an eerily similar cut – albeit in a different colour – at the BAFTA nominees’ party.
The ex-footballer’s was compared to a “Bond girl” by fans and one commentated that she looked “like a million bucks”.
Zig and zag
The National Television Awards red carpet is no stranger to daring looks and back in 2021, Alex knocked it out of the park with her black glitzy dress.
Her outfit, which featured zig-zag cut-outs and sheer fabric, went down a storm and the following year Maya appeared to take tips from her look.
At the 2022 Brit Awards, the TV star wore a skimpy black cut-out bra-let and skirt that had a similar zig-zag pattern.
Coming full circle, that same month Alex wore a similar blag zig-zag cut-out for Soccer Aid 2022.
Alex sported a yellow dress with jewels for her promotional shots ahead of appearing on Strictly Come Dancing back in 2019.
It was one of the first times fans noticed her flair for fashion – mainly because they were used to seeing her in a football kit.
As the face of summer TV hit Love Island, it’s no surprise Maya loves to brighten things up too.
A month before Alex took to the dancefloor, she snared an eye-popping snap of a revealing yellow number based on a 90s Versace dress.
When it comes to the red carpet, both stars go shoulder to shoulder.
Maya wore a cream floor-length, one-shoulder gown with a thigh-high slit first at the 2020 National Television Awards.
The curve-flattering style made another appearance in May this year, when Alex attended the UK Premiere for Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
She made a splash at the London event in the near-identical outfit, which hung over a single shoulder and had a similar high thigh cut.
Maya and Alex know how to shimmer in silver too.
The former led the way at the grand opening party of Mayfair’s Bacchanalia restaurant in November last year.
Her ensemble had a cut-out section at the waist and a thigh-high slit that flaunted her enviable curves.
And at the 2023 Grammy Awards in February, Alex commanded the spotlight when she wore her own silver show-stopping dress.
The pundit’s dress had a similar thigh slit and a figure-hugging shape that showed off her body.
