Miss Jenkins is famous for her stage presence, however this time she was presenting in front of an audience of students rather than her usual adoring fans. The opera singer opted for a bold blue colour block dress for her appearance at the Oxford Union debate club, looking preened and professional for the occasion.

From powder to electric, blue hues dominated the SS13 catwalks this year with designers from Burberry to Jonathan Saunders favouring bold primary colours. Not only was the colour of Katherine's dress high on the summer season trend list, colour block designs are also in high demand this summer. Colour block dresses are an easy way to keep your look minimal whilst ensuring maximum style (and are super-flattering for all body shapes!).

Take a style tip from Katherine Jenkins and team with a pair of patent black heels and some simple, understated jewellery.
