Strictly’s Claudia Winkleman takes style inspiration from Elvis as she rocks a sparkly white suit

Strictly Come Dancing presenter Claudia Winkleman was simply dazzling on Friday night as she rocked a crystal embellished white trousers suit for the launch show. 

And it appears that Claudia, 50, has taken style inspiration from none other than Elvis Presley for this year’s series, with the host recently revealing that she’d fallen in ‘love’ with the Baz Luhrmann directed biopic about the King Of Rock ’n’ Roll.

With Claudia having recently told how she takes how her wardrobe theme for each series is inspired by a certain person or place, it definitely appears that she’s been all shook up by Elvis’ cool style this year.

On Saturday’s live show, the star also wore a pair of white boots which are a similar style to those worn by Elvis. 

A source told The Mirror of Claudia’s fashion choices: ‘Claudia loves having fun with fashion and Elvis is such a style icon it seemed a no-brainer to choose him as her inspiration for this series. It helps that he was a fan of sparkle, which suits Strictly.

‘Expect to see Claudia in lots of rhinestones and, of course, a pair of Blue Suede Shoes.’

Meanwhile, earlier this year, the Strictly presenter told how each year she’s bases her looks on certain themes.
