Paloma Faith sparkles at Royal Academy of Arts bash

A host of stars attended the event, including Peter Capaldi, Kristin Scott Thomas and Charli XCX.

Paloma Faith turned heads in a show-stopping sequinned dress as she arrived at a star-studded party in London.

All eyes were on the singer as she walked into the Royal Academy of Arts party at Burlington House on Wednesday.

Her sparkly floor-length dress featured a black skirt, high neck and a dramatic pink and white bodice, with full sleeves.

Actress Kristin Scott Thomas also caught a few eyes, looking far younger than her 58 years in trousers printed with polka dots and butterflies and shades shielding her eyes from the evening sunshine.
