Holly Willoughby proved a classic black dress most definitely isn’t boring during a red carpet appearance in London last night.

The 38-year-old ‘This Morning’ presenter wore a black Christopher Kane dress for the ITV Palooza 2019 event, which took place at the Royal Festival Hall.

Willoughby’s sleek lob (long bob) style hair was parted at one side and fell just above her shoulders, showing off the dress’ beaded necklace.

She paired the black dress with a pair of black pointed court shoes from Gina Shoes London, and kept her accessories minimal - wearing just her engagement and wedding rings.

Patsy O’Neill, Willoughby’s make-up artist, ensured the TV presenter looked as flawless as ever with a deep tan, defined brows and shimmery cheekbones.

Willoughby never fails to disappoint with her outfits, which she regularly shares on her Instagram account, tagging the brands involved.

Earlier this year, she was voted one of the nation’s 30 top style icons by The Sun.

Other celebrities present at the star-studded event included Lorraine Kelly, Susanna Reid and Davina McCall.

Kelly wore a velvet and silk black jumpsuit from Zara with a stand-out bow detail at the waist, paired with an up-do and drop-style diamond earrings.

She paired it with a beaded black clutch evening bag and jewelled black pointed court shoes.

Also present was Lisa Snowdon, who wore a multi-coloured Rixo gown with a plunge neckline and a thigh high slit, paired with bright pink heels.
