When she started as a weather presenter on GMTV in 2000, few realised the celebrity status Clare Nasir would one day enjoy.

But it seems the 40-year-old star has become so famous she”s now something of a trendsetter.

Geri Halliwell last night stepped out in the same purple cutaway dress worn by Clare in January.

Geri opted for the sexy dress, which showed off her toned figure, as she attended an exclusive Lady Gaga showcase at London”s Annabel”s nightclub yesterday evening.

The outfit, which Geri teamed with nude heels, highlighted the singer”s cleavage and also drew attention to her tiny waist.

And the dress had the same effect when Clare wore it back in January to proudly show off her new size six figure after losing an astonishing amount of weight.

What”s so funny Geri and Henry mess around in the back of their taxi

But following Gaga”s performance, things went from bad to worse for Geri.

In an attempt to congratulate Gaga after the show, Geri is said to have somehow managed to bypass the security and get into the singer”s dressing room backstage.

Geri was then thrown out by security, much to her disgust.

A source told the Evening Standard: “Lady Gaga had taken one of the venue”s private dining rooms as a dressing room and it was a haven for her amid the chaos outside.

“Geri seemed desperate to get inside and somehow managed to walk in unannounced.

“Lady Gaga wasn”t happy and didn”t even give her a chance to explain before she was removed security. It was highly embarrassing.”
