Last week at My Beautiful Ball held in honour of the Katie Piper Foundation all the best dressed philanthropists and A-listers alike were out in full force for the cause. Like the lady of the hour herself Katie Piper, Denise Van Outen opted for a full-length, strapless evening gown which was equal parts sultry and sophisticated. Team LBD were further impressed on closer inspection to find that Ms Van Outen's gorgeous black dress was made up of soft-to-the-touch black and iridescent feathers. And the addition of a waist-whittling peplum didn't go unnoticed on our fashion desk either! Teamed with matching red lips and nails and a delicate diamanté necklace the TV presented and West End actress showed us how to do ball gown dressing to perfection in the 21st century.
