The 2021 MasterChef grand final is almost upon us, but while we’ve yet to see who gets crowned this year’s best home cook, there was one clear winner in the fashion stakes last night.
Judges Jock Zonfrillo and Andy Allen were looking very dapper in their black tuxedos, however, there was no looking past Melissa Leong who absolutely stunned in a yellow silk slip dress from Ted Baker.
The TV star looked as though she’d walked straight off a red carpet - or, as a few people pointed out on Twitter, out of a Kate Hudson movie - in the elegant frock.
The look garnered lots of attention on social media, with viewers heaping praise on the popular judge.
“Melissa is so stunning tonight, a goddess,” one person said on Twitter, while another wrote, “Melissa’s looking like Belle in her yellow dress but who's the Beast, Jock or Andy?”
Others put it more simply, writing on Instagram, “Holy Smokes Mel!!”, “Stunnnnning!!!!” and “Love that dress!”
After Elise's elimination in last night's semi final, Justin and Kishwar will be joining Pete in the grand final that starts tonight and finishes on Tuesday.
