It'll see you through party season

I know Strictly Come Dancing is all about the fancy costumes the dancers where (hello sequins and feathers), but I have to say Claudia Winkleman's wardrobe this season has blown then all out of the water.

Case in point, the quite frankly perfect party dress she wore at the weekend's shows. It was a delicate slip maxi dress, scattered with shimmering stars. Basically the sexy little sister of THAT M&S constellation dress.

The good news is Claudia's is also from the high street, and it hasn't sold out yet. It's £55 from Topshop, and while sizes are limited online, you can search stock for your nearest store.

Claudia wore hers with heeled sandals for that classic evening look, but don't feel you can't wear it during the day time.

Simply layer it over a grey or black roll-neck jumper, paired with knee high boots.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
