Alexandra Burke Raises The Hem Of Her Black Dress

It looks like Alexandra Burke had tons of fun when she attended the opening of M&M World in London’s Leicester Square with her good friends JLS. What a radiant grin!

However, given that the new shop is four floors of retail space devoted to the sugar coated chocolate and peanut sweets, we’re not surprised she had a bit of a sugar rush.

This is just one of the photocalls that the hardworking singer has done in the past few days. She’s also jetted between Formula One parties and races and T4 On The Beach.

But despite her busy schedule she manages to look so effortlessly cool in her black dress at the shop launch.

If you wear the right clothes it’s easier to make it appear as if you have everything under control – even if your schedule is packed – and the tulip cut of Alexandra’s dress’s hem is super flattering as it reveals occasional glimpses of leg. This makes them look more slender as you never get to see the full leg, which is great if you don’t want to wear a maxi dress but would like more coverage than a traditional cocktail dress.

So what’s Alexandra got coming up next? Very can exclusively reveal that there are still opportunities to catch the X Factor winner on her All Night Long Tour until August – she’s got dates in Cork, Leeds and Burnley amongst other places.

And after that it will be time for her second studio album, which she has promised to be more experimental than her debut album Overcome.

She’s collaborated with Red One, Bruno Mars and Ne-Yo so you can guarantee tunes that you’ll feel compelled to sing along with.

And talking of compulsion, we’re feeling the urge to try different hemlines now we’ve seen what it’s doe for Alex. Check out the stunning sparkly Love Label scalloped beaded hem dress

The South mesh insert prom dress has a transparent strip above the hemline so the floaty fabric skims your legs and makes them look slimmer

Or the Forever Unique Dominika dress has a graduated hemline to flare out as you move – gorgeous!

Alexandra had some rock chick shoe boots to add some extra attitude and lengthen her legs. Check out the Love Label Heidi peep toe shoe boots

We look forward to seeing lots more of the X Factor star. Let’s hope she keeps up the positivity throughout her busy schedule!
