LAURA Whitmore has backed a Caroline Flack tribute dress after its designer confirmed they will donate £100 to charity per frock purchased.
The 34-year-old TV presenter was left heartbroken by the death of her friend earlier this month.
After jetting back from South Africa where she hosted the Love Island final on Sunday, Laura encouraged her followers to buy a version of a dress Caroline, 40, wore to the NTAs last year.
The bright orange garment featured shorts with a floor length skirt around the back and the style has just been re-released by its designer, Hasan Hejazi.
Sharing a picture of the new pink version of the ‘Caroline’ dress, Laura wrote: “My mate @hasanhejazi made a pink dress of the version Caroline wore with profits going to @Mindcharity.”
Laura followed her post up with a screenshot of her purchasing one of the dresses for herself.
On the designer’s site, the description read: “This piece is a tribute to Caroline Flack who originally wore this dress in orange to the National Television Awards in 2019.
“Due to it’s popularity we have released this new colour in pink for Caroline and to raise money for the Mind charity. Pink is a colour that symbolises love, compassion, playfulness and most importantly kindness.”
The site added: “All profits (Approximately £100 per dress) will be donated to Mind, a registered charity who provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
“‘In a world where you can be anything, be kind.’ – Caroline Flack, 2019.”
During Sunday’s Love Island finale, Laura – who replaced Caroline as host – was tearful as she paid tribute to her late pal.
“The past week has been extremely difficult, coming to terms with the loss of our friend and colleague, Caroline.
“We’re thinking of her family and everyone who knew her at this time.
“Caroline loved Love Island, she loved love and that’s why tonight’s final is dedicated to her.”
