MTV Europe presenter, Ireland’s own Laura Whitmore has just single-handedly reminded me why London Fashion Week is so exhausting. Here’s Whitmore today, at (from left) the Fyodor Golan, Felder Felder and Zoe Jordan shows in London.

I don’t have any television channels (something that is changing from Monday thanks to a very persuasive man at UPC), but I have kept an eye on Whitmore’s style over the past few years, and she is really nailing it lately. She’s undoubtedly a very good looking girl, and being blonde and petite often leads down that road of dressing in a very girlish, almost child-like way – but Whitmore manages to stay on exactly the right side of cool with these looks.

I am, I’ll admit, a bit concerned about the possibility that those shoes are all of the platform variety, but I’ll let her away with it – especially because of her leather ensemble in the centre, in which she manages to expose midriff and still look classy. Top marks, LW.

Check in tomorrow for the lowdown on day one at LFW – what will we be wearing this autumn?
