Bumblebees and Pearly Queens: TOWIE stars Sam and Lauren stand out in tight and bright outfits at the TRIC Awards
16:08 GMT, 13 March 2012
Only one of them just returned from a sunny holiday in Dubai, but it was hard to tell who when The Only Way Is Essex stars Lauren Pope and Sam Faiers attended the TRIC Awards in London today.
The reality stars were representing the ITV2 show at the awards, where it won for Best Satellite/Digital Programme.
Both showed off tanned legs in short ensembles – but only Sam's was the real deal. Lauren faked her golden glow that set off her bumble bee-inspired dress.

Lauren added simple black heels and clutch bag to go with her striped and floral-print frock.
She joked on Twitter: 'On way to the TRIC Awards to meet the Towie gang n I think I may be wearing the worlds most least subtle patterned dress! Haha.'
Sam, 21, looked like she was taking sartorial tips from a Pearly Queen, in a shorts suit lined with pearls.
