Cindy Crawford originally wore a floor-length black dress similar to Cat’s to the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards 30 years ago. 

This black buckled bodice and sleek skirt dress has become iconic over the years and even Cindy’s daughter Kaia, wore a mini version of the dress for her 18th birthday in 2019. 

Though it was supermodel Christy Turlington who first wore the gown on the runway during Versace’s fall 1992 show.

Cat was keen to point out that her makeover was down to ‘filters and a team of people’.

Posing after the show with no makeup on, the presenter explained: ‘Thought I’d give you all a little break from all the glam for a second!’

‘It takes a team of people to make me look like ‘the host’ & I can’t thank them enough! And while yes filters can be oh so fun, here’s a little reminder they’re not real…. X’
