That's one Rose-y behind! Lydia Bright shows off one VERY sunburned bikini bottom as she showers on the beach
17:36 GMT, 8 May 2012
She's taken a stand as the only female member of TOWIE who doesn't indulge in regular fake tans.
But sadly for Lydia Rose Bright, her creamy complexion proved her downfall yesterday in Dubai.
The blonde suffered some fairly severe sunburn- which was especially evident when she moved her bikini bottoms, showing the stark contrast with the colour of her skin underneath.
Cooling off: Lydia Bright enjoyed a seaside shower after a dip in the water yesterday in Dubai
… but sadly it appeared that Lydia had neglected to apply enough suncream
No doubt within a few days the burn will cool off and Lydia will be left with a flattering natural tan.
Ironically, Lydia's deep blue bikini would have really suited a golden hue.
The star showed off her rather rosy behind as she took a seaside shower.
Lydia looked pretty without make-up- an almost unheard-of occurrence for her- and it must have been a relief to take a dip without worrying about the dreaded panda eye when her mascara ran.
She was spotted applying suncream to her stomach on a sun lounger at one point, but clearly not as thoroughly as necessary.
Despite her sunburn woes Lydia was clearly sad to leave Dubai.
She posted on her Twitter page: 'Best holiday of my life crying inside right now can't believe its over I love Dubai ♥'
And Lydia tweeted on her journey home: 'Boarding my flight 🙁 Goodbye my private butler, floor to ceiling windows, sea view, four bathroom apartment I will miss you @GrosvenorHouse'.
Should get better in a few days: Though she may feel a little sore now, Lydia's burn will hopefully develop into a natural tan
However she wasn't off as quickly as she had imagined, and she added: 'Sitting in Dubai airport flight delayed 12 hours.
'Be careful what you wish for I said I didnt want to come home & now its bit me in the arse'
The blonde recently showed off her creamy complexion posing in a series of ragdoll poses in a shoot for Now Magazine.
And in the accompanying interview, Lydia told Now that she is moving on after splitting from her ex-boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent.
Could have been worse: Though her arms and shoulders were a little red, Lydia's face appeared to have survived the sun
Natural look: Lydia refreshingly went without make-up, a rarity for the TOWIE girls
She said: 'People come up to me in the street saying, “We want you to get back with Arg,” but at the moment it’s “never ever”. I wouldn’t want to put myself back into the position where I could be miserable again.
'I’d never ever turn around to anyone and say he doesn’t love me because I know he loves me so, so much. I love him as well but it’s a different love now.'
Lydia added that the reason the pair split was nothing to do with Arg's change in appearance or drastic weight loss, but down to his change in personality.
Checking her progress: Lydia certainly won't have to waste any money on a spray tan upon her return to Essex
Got to be careful: The sun tends to burn more acutely when reflected off water
She said: 'It was never about his looks. When we met, he was 18st with a skinhead and I fell in love with him for who he was.
'We broke up because his personality changed – going behind my back and the cheating allegations. I would’ve preferred him to stay the size he was but just be the same person I fell in love with.'
And Lydia also told Now about how she feels about her appearance, and what she would do to change it.
What do you reckon Lydia appeared to be asking her pal's opinion on whether she had caught the sun
Welcome chance to relax: After a stressful time following her break-up with Arg, Lydia must have relished the holiday
She added: 'I’ve had my teeth
whitened because a white smile makes such a big difference and I’ve had
my eyebrows tattooed. I do have stretchmarks on my bum but when I look
in the mirror there’s nothing that makes me unhappy.
now and then with an outfit I might think, “Oh, stick a chicken fillet
in!” but when I think of my body icons, such as Olivia Palermo, none of
them has big boobs. If I suddenly have these huge boobs on me, I’d
topple over, wouldn’t I'
No towel for me: Lydia was understandably comfortable with showing off her toned figure
Missed a spot: Lydia did apply suncream to her arms, but she should have paid more attention to her back
Took a break from the water: Lydia relaxed on a sun lounger in-between dips in the sea
