Former Dragons' Den star Hilary Devey has said that she is flattered that she appears to have inspired Madonna's headline-grabbing look at a New York gala.

The Queen of Pop, 54, posed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art ball in fishnet tights, black suspenders, pink stilettos, chains, a dog collar and completed the look with a crucifix hanging underneath her bottom.

Her severe black hairdo and sharp fringe made the singer look uncannily like Devey.

Devey, 56, who has been replaced by Kelly Hoppen on Dragons' Den after she quit the BBC2 show for Channel 4, told her Twitter followers: "Nice to see @mdna taking a few fashion tips xxxx".

The businesswoman, who made her fortune in freight haulage, added: "Flattered + honoured that @mdna has decided to take tips from this Northern material girl".

Other celebrities at the Punk: From Chaos To Couture-themed ball included Anne Hathaway, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz.

Embracing the punk theme, Madonna said that she was a fan of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen "and that whole era" but that "I wanted to do my own thing, but my own twist on it".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

A hospital, university or government agency could give you the paperwork you require to move ahead. Establish a friendship with an official who can serve as an advocate for you. Avoid getting entangled with a legal matter. Launching a lawsuit will cause more problems than it is worth. You're better off walking away from a troublemaker who has lots of time to waste in the court system. Cut your losses and focus on making a fresh start. You have the ability to build a secure financial future.More
