But she made sure she turned heads at the ELLE Style Awards tonight as she hit the red carpet in a sexy frock.

The 34-year-old wore a backless, extremely low-cut black floor-length dress to the swanky awards ceremony in London, with a slit up the side.

And she made sure she avoided a wardrobe malfunction as the singer kept her hand on the neckline of the dress, to ensure she didn't fall out.

S Club 7 star Rachel wore her hair swept back as she completed her sexy look with red nail polish and lashings of red lipstick.

The British star will be hoping she bumps into expected guest Bradley Cooper at the ceremony after she tweeted her love for him at the BAFTAs on Sunday night.

She posted: "Bradley cooper and Ben affeck looking extremely hot ! #BAFTAs"

Well yes we quite agree with you.

Radio 1's Gemma Cairney showed off her cleavage in a knee-length knitted dress with a slash across her chest.

She teamed the grey and beige knit with red shoes and a very tight top knot.

Model Daisy Lowe also went for low-cut, wearing a huge floral-print Dolce and Gabanna prom dress.

The 24-year-old joked that she hardly fitted into her car on the way to the swanky bash.

She tweeted: "En route to the elle style awards! And my dress is taking up most of the backseat! :D thanks @dolcegabbana http://instagr.am/p/VmizsfyoRr/"
