She doesn't even need make-up! Michelle Ryan looks fresh-faced and feminine at the Hampton Court Palace Festival
14:16 GMT, 15 June 2012
She may have recently turned 28, but Michelle Ryan could probably pass for being in her early twenties.
The British actress managed to look pretty and fresh-faced yesterday despite wearing hardly any make-up at all.
As she arrived at the Hampton Court Palace festival, Ryan looked glowing and confident when most women in that situation would worry that they don't look good enough.

The former EastEnders star also chose
quite a simple outfit to wear to the event wearing a navy, white and
orange loose-fitting dress.
The casual garment highlighted her slender figure and fell just above her knees.
Ryan teamed the dress with a pair of patent nude stilettos and also carried a navy blue handbag on her left shoulder.
Despite making the transition from soap star to film star, the brunette has clearly been kept down to earth when it comes to her appearance.
Made up: Singer Sinitta and model Golan Hofit did arrive wearing make-up
New friends Liza Minnelli and Sheridan Smith posed together backstage at the festival
However, not all of the female attendees were so confident about going bare-faced and singer SInitta and model Golan Hofit opted to wear make-up.
Sinitta kept the rest of her outfit fairly laid-back teaming black trousers and a jacket with matching wellies.
She completed her look with a straw hat and gestured the peace sign as she posed for the cameras.
Legendary: Liza Minnelli treated guests to a performance
Another two famous ladies who attended the opening night of the festival was the legendary Liza Minnelli – who also performed – and Sheridan Smith, who was lucky to pose with the dark-haired star.
Minnelli kept her look simple by wearing all black, whereas Smith wore a pair of leopard-print jeans and tan ankle boots.
Sir David Frost and comedian Frank Skinner were just some of the male guests who turned up to watch the show.
