Louis Smith looks like he has been raiding the Strictly costume cupboard, wears bizarre suit to sports awards

Louis Smith can never be accused of not being a sharp dresser.

Kate presents Sports Personality The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge presented awards at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards on Sunday night (16DEC2012), her first public appearance since she was hospitalised for acute morning sickness.

Well, perhaps until last night.

The Olympic silver medalist and Strictly Come Dancing contestant attended last night's Sports Personality of the Year awards dressed in an uncharacteristically unfashionable choice of attire.

We've heard of geek chic but somehow Louis managed to look full on geek with none of the chic.

The gymnast donned a tight fitting suit jacket, bow tie and baggy check print trousers.

He looked more ready for a cheeky Charleston than to walk down the red carpet for one of the biggest nights in sport.

Louis Smith finished off the odd outfit with a pair of giant comedy horn rimmed specs and novelty sized buckled belt.

As Craig Revel Horwood would say, his outfit was a dis-ASTER.

Still it wasn't all bad news for Louis Smith last night.

The Olympian was announced as one of the four finalists of Strictly Come Dancing this year alongside Kimberley Walsh, Denise Van Outen and Dani Harmer.

Clearly overjoyed in last night's show, Louis was at a loss for words over the news.

Let's just hope for his sake that is dancing is better than his fashion sense in next weekend's grand finale.
