MAURA Higgins has sparked speculation of a celebrity feud after pulling out of an A-List event, deeming her outfit “not appropriate.”
Yet the following night, while preparing to attend the British Fashion Awards, the Glow Up Ireland host had a change of heart.
All glammed up with a perfect face of make-up, Maura took to her Instagram Stories to tell fans: “So guys, everyone is messaging me like, ‘Where are ya and where are the red carpet pictures?’
“I’ve had a bit of a nightmare.
“So obviously you can see I am fully ready. Glam team are on point as usual.
“Basically… the dress, the shoes, everything wasn’t something I’d wear.
“I don’t really know what to say, it’s like, I just feel it’s not very appropriate for the Fashion Awards.”
She then clarified: “I obviously do like to go daring, you guys know that, but I just feel, Ek weet nie. It’s just not right.
“So yeah, I’ve decided not to go. I’m still in the hotel as you can see.”

Maura’s shimmering gown featured a plunging v neckline which revealed her cleavage.
The gold halterneck design was tied at the nape of her neck by two tiny straps.
Vroeër die dag, she told how she was being given the attire on the night.
Maura wrote: “BFA tonight… first time to have zero control on my outfit… excited to see what @scott_henshall has designed for me.”
Scott is a king of red carpet glam, and used to be a creative director at fashion house Mulberry.
At the same event, he designed a gown for socialite Lady Victoria Hervey, who wore an LBD with a flowing black train.
The shindig marked Scott’s first appearance at the Fashion Awards since 2007, where he also designed for Karen Millen OBE, Dame Kelly Holmes, Iris Law and Talulah-Eve.
