Tutu pretty: The Only Way Is Essex star Sam Faiers arrives at Kirk Norcross' fairground birthday wearing a pretty pink tutu skirt and printed vest top
She can usually be found wearing long, low-cut dresses on hit ITV2 show The Only Way Is Essex.
But today Sam Faiers tried out a different style option as she joined the rest of the TOWIE cast for a day out at the fairground and arrived wearing a sexy mini tutu that Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw would be proud of.
The 20-year-old glamour model teamed the skirt with a cheeky ice-cream slogan vest top and a pair of metallic flip-flops.

And Sam didn't look at all daunted by some of the terrifyingly big rides on offer, taking it in her stride and leading the rest of the gang on to one of the biggest - Mega Motion.
Sam was joined by TOWIE castmembers Billie Faiers, Lucy Mecklenburgh, Harry Derbidge (who sported newly-dyed brown hair), James 'Arg' Argent, Joey Essex and Lydia Rose Bright at the fair as they celebrated castmate Kirk Norcross' birthday.
Glamour model Sam's sister Billie also arrived at the fair in huge wedges, teamed with a cute black playsuit as the cast made the most of the sunshine.
What a day! The ride was actually set up in Kirk's back garden as part of his birthday celebrations
Amy, 20, looked happy and relaxed on the day out, despite reports this morning she is unhappy about the amount of coverage she is receiving on this series of The Only Way Is Essex.
It was claimed today Amy has told producers she was annoyed with the amount of screen time the show's newcomers, such as Joey and Chloe Simms, were receiving.
