DJing Dame: Jo Whiley stepped out from behind the mic and into the spotlight on Monday when she hosted the 25th Music Industry Trusts Award, honouring The Who's Roger Daltry

Jo, who first shot to national fame back in the late '90s with her daytime show on Radio 1, oozed an air of chic sophistication in the breezy little number.

Opting for a navy blue number, which featured a layered neckline, the presenter flashed a hint of skin whilst retaining her modesty.

The thigh-grazing cut of the mini allowed Jo to subtly draw the eye to her toned legs, which she accentuated and defined with a pair of towering platform shoes.

Sticking to the age-old adage of 'less is more', the TV presenter kept things simple and only wore two bracelets on either arm.

Wearing her signature blonde locks in a coiffed off-centre parting, the DJ allowed her lustrous locks to fall to her shoulders and frame her face.

Opting for a natural and complementary palette of make-up, Jo allowed her pretty features to shine through.
