Looking fabulous to receive her prestigious award, the 27-year-old star stunned fans in a slick power suit - and the most amazing Zara platform heels. Complete with a cropped tailored jacket and figure-flattering high waisted trousers, Rose opted for an edgy eveningwear look for the occasion - and it's a total vibe.

Adding a pop of colour, Rose's makeup artist Jaz Crush elevated the look with a smouldering emerald eye and fluttery lashes. Rose also rocked fluffy brows, rosy blush and a beautiful bold lip.

Rose's award is so well deserved after her momentous year. The Strictly winner not only made history with dance partner Giovanni Pernice as the competition's first deaf contestant, but she's also worked tirelessly campaigning for British Sign Language laws to change.

The actress, who has supported the bill to make BSL a recognised language, explained one of the many barriers deaf people face, telling the BBC: "If I go to the doctor and there's no interpreter it means I have to bring a family member with me. But I don't want that, I want privacy."

Rose had called on MPs to make BSL an official language and to be given legal status in the UK. She said the UK's lack of familiarity with BSL poses a real problem for the deaf community.

Speaking about the lack of respect shown to the deaf community, Rose recently told The Big Issue: "I'm backing it because this is my language. The fact that my country doesn't see it that way is really sad and means we don't get the respect we deserve and the language deserves."
