Strictly dancers Janette Manrara and Kristina Rihanoff have gushed over fashion designer Julien Macdonald whose show they both attended on Saturday as part of London Fashion Week 2018. Janette and her fellow Strictly dancer husband Aljaz Skorjanec, and Kristina and her rugby player boyfriend Ben Cohen, attended the glitzy event at Hyde Park's St John Church before sharing photos of their outfits on social media, and thanking the designer for an "incredible" show. Janette dazzled in a shimmering sequin dress, while Kristina showed off some serious sophistication in a mesh top paired with tailored trousers. Never one to shy away from bold outfits thanks to his time wearing Strictly costumes, Aljaz also put a fashion foot forward in a bright white jacket featuring embroidered detail, whereas Ben played it cool and classic in a black blazer and jeans combination.

Kristina later wrote: "We absolutely loved it ! Your collection is insane!" Janette also shared photos of the night and commented alongside the pictures: "Amazing night for #LFW2018 watching @julienmacdonald show! @aljazskorjanec & I loved being the #MacDonaldCouple last night dressed in his clothes! Haha! Truly incredible." Former Strictly star Ruth Langsford was quick to compliment them on how amazing they looked, simply writing: "Gorgeous."
