Leona Lewis: I'm a fashion one off

Leona Lewis has named her favourite princess red carpet moment.

The singer named the purple gown she sported at the Golden Globe Awards in 2010 as her all-time best outfit.

This was her defining style moment as she was able to put her own stamp on the ensemble.

"This is my favourite ever red carpet look. Roberto Cavalli sent loads of dresses for me to try on in my hotel room, so I could pick one to wear for that night. I loved the colour of this dress - it's like a fairytale dress!" she exclaimed to UK magazine Closer.

"I hit the shops in LA to find some funky jewellery and a box clutch to keep the look unique."

The singer is a keen advocate of animal rights, which means she also sources beauty products that are cruelty free.

Leona is an ambassador for The Body Shop but shared which other beauty brands have caught her eye.

"I love Liz Earle lip gloss in Apricot - it gives a subtle sheen. I also use Liz Earle Cream Blush on my lips sometimes for a hint of colour," she added.

"My beauty rule is heavy eyes or lips - never both! I love a feline flick, and always use a moisturising hair mask before events."

In February this year, Leona showed her fashion prowess when she attended the opening of the world's tallest hotel wearing a black velvet dress. She's also not afraid to take risks on the red carpet, as seen by her appearance at The Love Ball in February 2010 in a one shouldered metallic futuristic looking number.

"The gothic trend is tipped to be big next season, so I thought I'd get in there first," Leona said of her look.

"My pal William Tempest lent me this architecture-inspired frock. It's so quirky."
