Claudia Winkleman just rocked the most incredible outfit for the Strictly Come Dancing 2020 launch show. Making a welcome return to the BBC ballroom alongside co-host Tess Daly, Claudia dazzled viewers in a bronze, sequinned trouser suit from Topshop.

The 48-year-old star wowed in the fabulous outfit, which featured wide-leg detailing and was sparkly enough to give the Strictly glitterball a run for its money! 

She accessorised with elegant rings and opted for her trademark hair and beauty look, styling her dark locks down loose and opted for heavy black kohl on her eyes and a slick of nude lipstick. We're obsessed with Claudia's classic look - which her stylist Sinead McKeefry confirmed was from Topshop on Instagram.

The star also added a protective face mask to her look, of course, which prompted plenty of fans to suggest she find herself a shimmery version to match her outfit.

Claudia is dressed by stylist Sinead McKeefry, who spoke to HELLO! last year about the star's go-to glittery outfits. 

Discussing their working relationship, Sinead said: "Claudia and I shop together but that usually ends in ten minutes of trying on and then a three-hour coffee and a gossip.

"I start prep for Claudia's outfits in August and we do a few big fittings throughout the run and then usually see how we feel on the day."

We can't wait to see what the rest of the series brings!
