Laura Whitmore reveals more than her thermals

Laura Whitmore walks the red carpet at the BAFTAs last night

What’s the trick to Laura Whitmore’s red carpet success? Socks and thermals. According to Laura, that is.



The blonde beauty looked incredible in a chic black jumpsuit at the BAFTAs on Sunday night and has been rocking a number of eye-catching looks of late, and after curbing our jealousy to the side, we're wondering how she manages to get it right every time. It seems, we're not wearing enough layers. 


“Practicality is always number one,” she said. “On Sunday, I’m going to be on the red carpet that’s freezing, so there will be thermals underneath my dress and there will be comfortable shoes.

“Even when I went to the National Television Awards two weeks ago, I was wearing socks. My dress was really long and I was freezing, so I just put on a pair of socks underneath because no one could see my feet, so that was fine.”


And the newly single star, who split from her live-in boyfriend of two years, Danny O’Reilly, frontman of The Coronas, has been staying tight-lipped on the details of their break-up. After making a dramatic entrance to the IFTAs last year, the high profile pair were noticeably absent, and Danny was nowhere to be seen while the Bray tv presenter rocked the red carpet at the Royal Opera House in London for the BAFTAs.

Despite landing a modelling contract with Select Model Management last year, she revealed that she won’t be making a permanent move to the catwalk because, she says, her personality is too outgoing.


“I can’t shut up,” she added. “When I was about 17, I did a lot of modelling in Ireland and they always told me off for talking too much. I’m not a model, I’m a tv presenter, but it’s a nice thing to have on the side.”
