The TV host works OTT make-up

Claudia Winkleman debuted a rather alarming new look at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards last night.

The TV presenter, 41, stepped out at London’s Royal Opera House with gothic eye make-up and an extremely tousled hairdo.

She opted for heavy lashings of dark eyeliner which was severely smudged underneath her green peepers, pairing her unique beauty trend with pale frosted lipstick.

Claudia‘s brunette locks had been styled into messy loose waves and her trademark thick fringe covered her eyebrows.

She was also sporting very brown fake tan, which seemed a little patchy in places.

Claudia has previously said that she gives ‘less and less of a toss every year’ about her body and that she ‘likes her skin to be the colour of teak’.

But even she seems to have realised that she was looking a little wild yesterday after receiving some criticism about her appearance.

‘What the crap happened to Claudia Winkleman at the GQ awards last night?’ wrote one Twitter user.

Another said: ‘@ClaudiaWinkle Did you mean it to look like that? #seriousquestion.’

Claudia Tweeted this morning: ‘Oh my. They’re not wrong. Eyeliner going in the bin. Ish.’
