The TV personality appeared on Kyle and Jackie O today to laugh off criticisms that her frock, designed by Rachel Gilbert, had a detail to the left of her lap that resembled the female anatomy.
The 32-year-old told the radio duo the ‘vagina’ was first pointed out to her by her “gay producer”.
“He said it ‘it looks like a vagina’. I did think it was going to happen, (that someone would say it) but I got through the whole day and no one said it,” she said on air.
“Now it’s there anyway, I thought it was great. It was sparkly and gorgeous… I did know they might call it ‘the vagina dress’ and I still wore it anyway,” Edwina said.

“Your face and body are to die for…. But, sorry, the thing on the dress looks like a part of a female anatomy. I know I am not the only person thinking this…,” one commenter wrote of Facebook.
“It would have been a lovely dress bar the anatomy hanging off it. Love the colour,” added another, before everyone cut to the chase and unanimously decided: Edwina had a vagina on her dress.

“Lose the vajayjay and it would have been perfect,” a follower admitted.
Some thought the added detail looked more like a doughnut than a vagina. “Pretty colour but the high neckline and donut thing on the front, just doesn’t look right,” wrote a follower on Edwina’s Instagram.
Another thought it looked more like a uterus, asking, “Nice but why is there a uterus on the outside of your dress?”
