The most wonderful thing about Susanna Reid's best looks is that they span day and eveningwear. During her decades-long career, the TV star has revealed her sleek sense of style on numerous occasions - from breakfast show hosting duties to glamorous red carpet appearances - so you can get plenty of sartorial inspiration for a wardrobe upgrade whether you're after a sharp office outfit or a dazzling ensemble for a night out. 

Reid trained as a journalist before getting her broadcasting start working in local news for the BBC. The star had been working as a reporter on BBC News 24 for two years when she got an unexpected opportunity to be a stand-in presenter. This then turned into a permanent position, and she went on to front BBC Breakfast and lead TV coverage for big events like the Oscars and New Year's Eve.

In 2013, Reid - who has three children with her ex-partner Dominic Cotton - solidified her status as a household name with an appearance on TV series Strictly Come Dancing. The following year, in 2014, the BAFTA-nominated presenter left the BBC for ITV and started fronting the channel's breakfast show Good Morning Britain. During this time, she also became known for sharing pictures of her stylish outfits with her hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers.

Reid is revered for her feminine sense of style, which predominantly revolves around an array of chic dresses - featuring everything from floral midis to sequinned gowns. Despite the seriousness of her background as a news journalist, the presenter takes a fun approach to fashion, and she plays around with everything from colour and fabric to hemlines and accessories.
