And for the Creative Arts Emmys on Sunday night, the GMA star sported a completely new look for the celebratory event.

Robin's film, Robin Roberts Presents: Mahalia, had been nominated for Outstanding Television Movie, and the 60-year-old rocked a chic updo for the occasion.

The popular journalist wore a white low-cut tailored jumpsuit to the event, which was accessorised with diamond earrings and a matching necklace.

While Robin's film didn't win – with Dolly Parton's Christmas on the Square taking home the award - the star had a wonderful night nonetheless.

The star also hosted and produced a powerful and emotional documentary on ABC called Women Of 9/11, which shone a light on the inspiring female first responders and survivors of the horrific terror attack, 20 years on.

In the programme, Robin also spoke with Genelle Guzman-McMillan, the last person pulled out alive from the World Trade Center rubble after 27 hours.

She enjoys nothing more than spending her weekends with her partner of 16 years, Amber Laign, and their rescue dog Lukas. The couple recently celebrated their 16th anniversary, having first met after being set up on a blind date by a mutual friend.

They live apart during the week, something Robin previously joked was the secret to their happy long-lasting relationship. The journalist opened up about her living situation in her book, Everybody's Got Something, in 2014.

She wrote: "Amber and I have been a loving couple for almost ten years now, but we choose not to live together. Maybe that's why we've lasted almost a decade!"

While the TV star is based in Manhattan during the weekdays so that she is close to the ABC studios, Amber lives full-time at their home in Connecticut.

Robin joins her there at the weekends and also spends a lot of time there during vacations. Amber was Robin's rock during her devastating cancer battle and bone marrow transplant, and was her main carer during this time.
