On Friday, the star donned a jaw-dropping metallic mini dress for her hosting duties, completing the look with a statement ponytail à la Ariana Grande – and we loved it!

The gorgeous dress was an eye-catching bronze hue and the one-shoulder design made it even more unique. Janette finished off her look with black and gold high heels and glowing makeup.

She wrote: "Channeled my #Latina vibes for last night’s #ItTakesTwo Make-Up: @summerdyason Hair: @georgia_woodland Styling: @gaylerinkoff."
