Both opting for dresses with thigh-high splits, Tess Daly, 52, and Claudia Winkleman, 49, looked nothing short of fab-u-lous on week two of Strictly Come Dancing. 

Daly chose to wear Tel Aviv-based couture fashion brand, Galia Lahav. The wrap dress comes complete with a velvet skirt and a beautifully sequinned top which gave the Strictly glitter ball a run for its money. 

The $3,450 (£2,544) Barbara dress is giving us major Bond vibes, further highlighted by the barely-there black YSL stilettos she wore to complete the look. 

Winkleman clearly got the thigh-split memo, too, as she went for a red puff-sleeve Self Portrait dress, £360, with matching pointed red heels from Gina Shoes.

The presenters let their dresses do the talking, with minimal jewellery. They both went for a scattering of rings from sustainable jewellery brand, Tilly Sveaas. Winkleman also wore a ring by family-run demi-fine jewellery brand, Otiumberg.

Daly's hair was pinned back in a high ponytail with a dramatic fringe flick and she did not shy away from all the glitter when it came to her make-up. It is Strictly Come Dancing, after all. 

Her make-up artist, Aimee Adams, shared a close-up photo on Instagram, detailing the make-up look. 

"I'm feeling the second live Strictly with a flick, a pony and a stunning black dress," Adams wrote.

The dramatic eye line flick and gold and bronze eye shadow is courtesy of Urban Decay Cosmetics and we are here for the sparkles on top of sparkles. That's an autumn fashion choice we really do hope catches on. 

For Winkleman's make-up look, her make-up artist, Debbie Dannell, chose a nude lip to work in contrast with the red dress and it worked wonders. 

Using a mixture of Charlotte Tilbury, Mac Cosmetics and Marc Jacobs Beauty, Dannell achieved a parred-back, elegant look while Winkelman's hair stylist put a slight parting in her signature fringe.

In week one, Daly wore a red dress not dissimilar to Winkleman's in week two while Winkleman went for a black Retrofête number that looked remarkably similar to Daly's Galia Lahav week two outfit. 

Whatever fashion memos those two are sending each other, it's working.
