Claudia Winkleman, 49, did it again on week four of Strictly Come Dancing. The presenter wore a black catsuit-style jumpsuit, leaving viewers in awe of her style.

Winkleman has wowed us each week, with many high-street bargains thrown in for good measure, but week four might've just topped the leaderboard.

While Winkleman's jumpsuit impressed the judges (aka the viewers), Tess Daly, 52, failed to impress, with fans likening her maroon velour mini-dress to a "curtain". 

You can't win them all. 

"I can't imagine why Claudia Winkleman is trending at the moment. Wow, what an outfit #loveit," one fan wrote of the £295 Nadine Merabi jumpsuit. 

Another described her look as "stunning" and we have to agree. 

The skin tight look, which Winkleman referred to as "full body spanx" even has customisable lining dependent on skin tone. She paired the outfit with some Gianvito Rossi heels and her signature blunt fringe.

Fans were less enamoured by Daly's look - a red Alexandre Vauthier mini-dress. The brand, which counts Beyonce as one of its fans, specialises in high-end haute couture, but failed to wow viewers. 

Daly paired the dress with some barely-there heels from Gina Shoes and her usual jewellery from Strictly favourite, Tilly Sveaas.

Some likened the dress to a "1970s cinema curtain" while others compared it to Zapp Brannigan's signature outfit in animated sci-fi sitcom, Futurama. 

Velour may be having a comeback, but some people would much rather it stayed in the '90s, with calls to "sack the stylist". 

Despite the debate around Daly's velour dress, both presenters have scored highly with the fashion critics in 2021's Strictly Come Dancing. 

While Winkleman might've won the crown in week four, there's still a long way to go before we crown our Strictly fashion queen.
