The stars were out in force last night (21 October) for the Inside Soap Awards, and Jorgie Porter was high on our style radar with her super-chic outfit.

The Hollyoaks star ditched the posh gowns, opting for a fierce animal print suit paired with towering platform heels instead.

We nabbed a quick chat with the blonde bombshell to talk all things fashion and beauty!

You look gorgeous, where is your outfit from?

"The Kooples (jacket, £295 and matching trousers, £155), I love it there. My shoes were so cheap from the market, and my bralet is from Topshop, it's actually meant to be underwear! My necklace is Topshop too. My chunky rings are attached to my clutch which I bought from Cricket in Liverpool, it's such an immense shop which stocks designers like Christian Louboutin. My other ring is from a pop-up vintage antique fair in New York, and I'm wearing glitter nail varnish from Urban Outfitters."

Did you have a last minute outfit panic?

"Yes absolutely, I was worried about wearing a suit because it's so boyish and my femininity might disappear!"

Did your boyfriend, co-star James Atherton, help you pick what to wear?

"He actually said he was a bit gutted he didn't wear a leopard print shirt to match. He said: 'That would have been good, wouldn't it?!'"

How are things going with James?

"Really good, he's here tonight which is exciting. We've been together for about two years now."

Have you posed on the red carpet together?

"No we never really do that, I think he would find it a bit cringy!"

What make-up look have you gone for?

"I actually had to do my own make-up tonight. I've managed to get eyelash glue on my eyelid, so every time I blink my false lashes get stuck! I went for a dark smoky eye, although I was quite rushed because we had to leave quickly."

How long did it take you to get ready?

"Not long really, my hairdresser was so fast, she took about eight minutes and my make-up took about six minutes. That's the fastest I've ever got ready!"

What are your make-up must-haves?

"Dior Diorshow Black Out Mascara, £23, is amazing, and I also love Lashout! Semi-Permanent Lash Extensions. It's so nice to wake up in the morning with long, luscious lashes, and you hardly have to put any make-up on, just a bit of tinted moisturiser and you're done. My favourite tinted moisturiser is by Laura Mercier, £33, but in the evening I use Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, £34.50. The coverage is fantastic.

"I also love Benefit make-up, the packaging is so cute and they have great ideas for products, like their High Beam, £19.50. I like Art Deco too, they make great metallic eyeshadows."

Did you know what hairstyle you wanted tonight, or did you give your hairdresser free rein?

"Yes I knew. If you're wearing a suit and have your hair down it can look a bit too heavy, so I definitely wanted it up. My hairdresser Kelly was from Phil Smith Hair, and she did a great job. But sometimes I just let my hairdresser do what they want, I trust them!"

Who are you excited to see tonight?

"Charley Webb, I love her and she's been doing fantastically well in Emmerdale, so a little chat with her would be nice."
