Claudia Winkleman delivered yet another noteworthy wardrobe moment as she took to the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom with co-host Tess Daly on Saturday night. 

The BBC presenter, 51, was a total vixen in a black and gold embellished jumpsuit by Nadine Merabi. Complete with a fitted bodice and fluid flared trousers, Claudia's show stopping number lit up Strictly with its glitzy padded shoulder detailing and dripping jewels.

Strictly fans were beguiled by Claudia's luxurious velvet number and glossy raven hair in her backstage photo, rushing to the comments to declare her Saturday Night Fever inspired look "exceptional". 

"WHAT AN OUTFIT," penned a fan, as another wrote: "I need this jumpsuit more than a superhero needs a cape." 

"My favourite outfit so far in this series!!! It’s a 10 Claudia," applauded a third fan. 

Claudia and her loyal stylist Sinead have worked together since 2005, and their 17-year friendship just keeps getting better as the Central Saint Martins alumni continues to deliver in the style stakes.

Speaking to Grazia in a recent interview, Sinead spoke about her doting friendship with the star: "We have a really good laugh. It just doesn’t feel like work," she said. "We always joke about how we hate the summer and love the winter. Wearing black, having a uniform. That’s her whole thing."

 Claudia's signature gothcore look has had some seriously spellbinding additions in this year's series, with the star rocking everything from Barbie pink to angelic white bouclé suits in an unexpected departure from her usual all-black attire.
