Holly Willoughby is proof that less is more.

Thursday night's ITV gala was an amalgamation of questionably dressed reality stars vying for column inches, sprinkled among elegant choices by industry veterans, while the This Morning host (36) stood out a mile in a classic black combination. The mother-of-three turned heads in a tuxedo style gown with a plunging neckline by Pallas Paris with diamonds from Boodles, with a pared back hair and makeup look.

She alter led the VIP guests at the after-party at the London Palladium, alongside Lisa Snowdon, Kym Marsh and Gemma Collins.

TV presenter Laura Whitmore (32) wore one of her signature suits, pulling a Kim Kardashian by going shirtless underneath, injecting some '90s-inspired glam with a pair of chunky velvet block colour heels, although she wasn't pictured enjoying the raucous celebrations later in the evening.

Loose Women's Katie Price proudly showed off her new veneers after revealing on-air yesterday she had to undergo painful dental surgery in Turkey to replace her veneers after she damaged them during a drunk skateboarding incident, before adding she failed to check the painkiller's ingredients and she had taken penicillin, which she is allergic to, unbeknownst to her.

"Last week they put me out for five hours and I flew back the next day, which was fine because they gave me all the antibiotics and everything and then on my way [to the television appearance on Loose Women], I was like, "'Oh my God, I feel really ill, really, really ill," she explained.

"And I read the box and - because I'm allergic to penicillin - that's what they'd given me so I was really ill for days after that. And then I did a chat with Piers Morgan with my temporaries and I was in so much pain."

She appeared back to her best, happily posing for photographers in a black mini-dress, while fellow reality stars including Lauren Pope, Stacey Solomon and Camilla Thurlow also walked the red carpet.
