We love it when a gorgeous celeb wears a glitzty party dress that a) we can actually imagine ourselves wearing and b) we can find on the high street. So thank you very much Tess Daly for sharing details of your latest gorgeous outfit. The Strictly host posted a snap of herself in this sparkly metallic dress on her Instagram page, which she wore to a launch party of her and Kelly Hoppen's Prince's Trust charity candles at London's Fortnum & Mason store. This is one of those timeless forgiving dresses that hides bingo wings and bloated tums, yet shows off your derriere with its bodycon skirt. Best of all – it's by high street fave Reiss.

Tess' Reiss dress is the Ratya style, a metallic knitted dress in a navy metallic, priced £185. It is cut in a bodycon shape with drape-front detail, long sleeves and a straight neckline. Her followers adored her outfit, with one posting: "Fab dress. Love the boots. You look great." Another said: "Such a fab look for you @tessdaly - I have totally just nicked this outfit for a Christmas party - ordered dress and boots! Thanks."
The presenter is known for her minimal accessory style, preferring to let her dress, hair and makeup do all the talking. Tess wore her long blonde hair down in cascading waves and went for a dark eyeshadow, well-defined brows and a bronze-hued blush on her cheeks.
