Susanna Reid has become a style icon among the early morning TV watchers.

Viewers who tune into her daily news reports and humorous quibbles with controversial co-host Piers Morgan on ITV’s Good Morning Britain are never let down when it comes to the star’s sartorial offerings.

From tailored skirts and dresses to fashionable two-pieces and daytime frocks, the morning news presenter always pulls off the latest styles and gets us all scrambling for our purses.

And this week she has definitely not disappointed.

Susanna kicked off the week on Monday with a gorgeous colourful number to brighten up the dreary mornings that the whole country has been plagued with, thanks to the borage of storms that have hit the UK in recent weeks.

The short-sleeved midi shirt dress is designed with an all-over leopard print.

However, instead of the classic brown, black, tan, nude and rust colours that the animal print usually comes in, Susanna’s Damsel In A Dress number donned a bright violet purple, fuchsia pink and peachy-orange colour theme.

The stylish button-up dress also featured a trendy no-collar collar, sleek gold buckles for a touch of glam, and a camouflaged belt at the waist to nip the tummy in and create a smooth hourglass shape.

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
