Charlotte Church went for a flattering velvet mini-dress with playful sheer overlay and killer shoes.
Following her shock split from Strictly contestant Gavin Henson, the Welsh lass has embarked on a new romance with writing partner Jonathan Powell.

Meanwhile, Nadine Coyle, newly engaged and over on an extended stay from the States, brought a touch of LA style with her.
Wearing a white slip of a dress and a boyfriend blazer, she gave fans an eyeful of her endless, tanned legs.
