While she tends to opt for muted tones and neutrals, Willoughby isn't afraid to experiment with colour either. At the 2019 Pride of Britain Awards the presenter made an entrance in a zesty red and purple number with statement structured shoulders.

She knows how to work an LBD too. Take a style note on how she made the simple black dress she wore to the ITV Palooza that little bit fancier, with jewel embellishment around the collar.

Sheer perfection!
