As the drama heats up on Love Island, so too does Laura Whitmore's wardrobe.

Strutting her stuff into the villa for the most dramatic recoupling of the series thus far, the Bray woman stunned in a pre-loved dress once worn by pop icon Mariah Carey.

With heart-to-hearts and broken hearts at the centre of every episode of the reality TV series, it's no surprise that our stylish host often dresses to suit her romantic surroundings.

To kick off another incredible year of cracking on, Whitmore chose a repurposed red suit with heart-shaped detailing by designer Joshua Kane that she first wore on the show in 2020.

For tonight's heart racing recoupling, she wore a vintage (yes, 2000 is technically considered vintage) dress once worn by Heartbreaker singer Mariah Carey for Vogue magazine.

Sourced from My Runway Archive - a London based vintage designer archive - the Emanuel Ungaro hot pink leopard print dress features a thigh high split and romantic ruffles.

Stylist Emma Lane paired the heart-stopping look with some silver platform heels from Aquazzura.

For the explosive episode of post-Casa Amor pairings, hair stylist Penelope Ryan gave Whitmore's blonde locks an added layer of drama by applying a light pink tint with Alchemic Conditioner from Davines - an environmentally friendly hair care business.

To complete the look, celeb manicurist Michelle Class painted love hearts on each of Laura's nails, while make-up artist Tori Ball gave the presenter a 'Casa Candy' look featuring a light pink lip and shimmery eye.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Love Island would be breaking up with their fast fashion partners in order to couple up with eBay, giving contestants access to a pre-loved wardrobe in the villa.

Going by her outfits thus far, it seems that Whitmore is happy to follow suit during her visits to the villa.
