You can’t go wrong with a little black dress – and Claudia Winkleman has confirmed just that with her stylish look for the latest instalment of Strictly Come Dancing.

The presenter, 49, wowed fans of tonight’s show, which was the much-loved ‘Movies Week’, in a slinky, off-shoulder number from none other than Zara.

While the high street frock costs just £89.99, it is currently sold out on the Spanish chain’s website.

Finishing off her chic ensemble, the star opted for an eye-catching pair of bright red heels from luxury shoe label Manolo Blahnik and hooped earrings from jewellery brand Optiumberg.

In a picture shared to Instagram, Winkleman – who also sported her trademark thick, brunette fringe and smokey eye make-up – could be seen posing off-set before taking to the stage.

The mother-of-three’s post has received more than 4,400 ‘likes’ and dozens of comments praising her outfit choice for this evening’s programme.

Social media users called her dress “gorgeous” and “stunning”, while many agreed that her heels were “simply divine”.

Her “textured dress” is described on the Zara website as having a fitted silhouette with a straight neckline, metallic thread detail and frayed trims.

Meanwhile, her co-host Tess Daly dazzled in a glamorous floor-length, Grecian-style lilac gown, with a thigh-high split.

The presenter, 52, accessorised with sleek blonde locks, purple eye-shadow and a pair of strappy nude heels. 

It comes after Winkleman slipped on a pair of black leggings, costing £12 from River Island, for last Sunday’s results show.

She wore them along with a black blazer, costing £69.99 from Zara, and a pair of nude, suede Gianvito Rossi pumps.

The star clearly can’t get enough of the Spanish fashion empire right now – however she has long turned to the brand when it comes to her ensembles for the BBC show.

It’s thanks to her stylist Sinead McKeefry, who Hello! last year reported scours the popular chain for outfit ideas, along with designer fashion website Net-A-Porter.

In the 2020 series of the show, Winkleman wore a black sleeveless, tuxedo-inspired dress from the purse-friendly shop, while in 2019 she wore a red sequinned suit.

McKeefry revealed: “Claud loves fashion so she is happy to experiment.”
