Strictly Claudia Winkleman is unrecognisable in snaps before fringe and fake tan

Strictly Claudia Winkleman is unrecognisable in snaps before fringe and fake tan

October 18, 2020

Strictly Come Dancing star Claudia Winkleman is almost as well known for her kooky fashion choices and statement dark fringe – so you'd be forgiven for not recognising her in this throwback snap.

The BBC host can be seen in a noticeably more low-key outfit as she poses for the cameras in 1995.

Beaming away, the fresh-faced starlet rocks a classic blue denim shirt unbuttoned at the collar to tease a white vest underneath.

With a navy jumper around her waist and a dark jacket, Claudia looked really for all weathers as she gazed down the lens.

Rather than sporting dyed dark locks, the starlet rocked long dirty blonde hair which fell in loose waves past her shoulders.

Keeping her jewellery just as understated, she completed her look with a simple silver necklace and stud earrings.

The outfit is a far cry from the uber glitz and glam numbers she opts for when on prime time TV.

Always getting into the Strictly Come Dancing spirit and then some, Claudia often wears glittering gowns or plunging tops as she hosts the BBC One series.

Recently speaking frankly about her bold eye-liner and bands which have come somewhat as a trademark look for her, Claudia says she uses it like an armour.

Talking at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, the 48-year-old said: "If you've got a fringe and been spray painted, you're winning … it totally desexualises you.

"I don't want to be sexually attractive, I don't want to be cute or sexy.

"I want to be Yves in Lyons. It helps with ageing.

"My face is falling off … I don't care. I love getting old but I will still be the orange one with the fringe."

Talking about her fashion sense away from Strictly Claudia said: "I've got three pairs of the same black jeans, plain sweaters, a fringe, orange face, black eyes, white mouth like I've kissed a bottle of Tippex, and I'm good to go."

She later joked to the Irish Daily Mail: "I genuinely think it's my fringe that's given me this career."

Strictly Come Dancing returned to BBC One on Saturday night with a pre-recorded launch show.

In a bid to abide by the ever changing social distancing rules, Claudia and co-host Tess Daly are banned from touching each other or contestants and must remain two meters apart at all times.
