Another day, another awards show. And last night it was the turn of the Royal Television Society Programme Awards, with Britain's best-loved actors and TV personalities descending on London in force.

Billie Piper was one star in attendance, nominated in the Leading Actress category for her role in I Hate Suzie Too. While we're obvs fans of the show and she's recently been making headlines with some statement hair dos (most recently her mullet-pixie hybrid), she actually caught our attention thanks to her killer Magda Butrym dress.

Spoiler alert: she may not have won any awards on the night, but we're crowning her one of the best dressed on the red carpet. The white gathered jersey created an all-over ruched effect and the midi design was finished with a ruffled neckline and thin spaghetti straps. But more importantly, it nailed two trends at once. Ruching? Check. Keyhole cut out detail? Check.

Strappy silver sandals and chandelier jewel and pearl earrings complete the look.

Here's a close-up look at the trending details on the dress – the ruffled neckline briefly meets in the centre of the chest to create a peek-a-boo cut out, and the ruching starts from the bustline.

Cut outs have been a major trend this season, with everyone from Heidi Klum to Dua Lipa and Ashley Graham trying the look. Ruching, too, has also been gaining traction, and just the other day Jennifer Aniston rocked an Isabel Marant floral print dress that featured similar central ruching.

This isn't the first time Billie has been experimenting with different trends on the red carpet. Trying out the corsage trend, she wore another Magda Butrym design to the British Vogue and Tiffany BAFTAs party a few weeks ago. Her look for this occasion was a satin pink mini dress that featured 3D flower decoration on the shoulder and hip. She attended the event with Lily James and posted a pic of the pair on Instagram.

Fans were clearly loving the duo, writing in the comments:

Divine ❤️❤️

We want in on this girl gang. And you know we'll be wearing either cut outs or ruching.
