Leona Lewis Looks Lovely On A Date Night In London

X Factor chart-topper Leona Lewis is back in the UK and she’s lookingmore beautiful than ever. Could it be because she’s in love?

The reason we ask is because she was spotted at Nobu restaurant in Mayfair with her handsome backing dancer Dennis Jauch.

With it’s seductive lighting and sharing platters of sushi, Nobu is the ultimate date place. And Leona dressed up for the occasion in a semi-transparent lace top, a pretty pleated skirt and statement shoes. It’s not outrageously flamboyant or attention-grabbing but it’s a very good Meet The Parents outfit. Gorgeous but understated!

Talking of which, Very can reveal that Leona and her man are now so close that he’s met her parents. Not at this occasion at Nobu, but since the couple got back in the UK from Leona’s place in LA they’ve visited her folks place in London.  We’d say that was a sign things were serious.

Leona was with her ex boyfriend Lou Al Chaama for eight years, so the pressure’s on Dennis to charm his way into the Lewis clan.

But Leona clearly wants things to work out or she wouldn’t have gone to the effort of dressing up.

By now she knows what suits her and one reason she’s chosen a skirt and top over a dress is that tucking the top into the skirt draws attention to her tiny waist. This is great if you have an hourglass silouhette or want to achieve one.

And if you’re pear shaped then a skirt that is loose and pleated will flare out over your legs, creating a slimming effect. Well done Leona!

If you’ve got a date night coming up then Leona’s a very good role model to copy, which is great news as you can easily recreate her look with items from Very.

Start with the French Connection Vaity lace top – an almost identical copy of Leona’s lacy number.

If you want something summery and white then the Love Label one shoulder ruffle blouse is feminine and chic but less see-through than the lace top.

Copy Leona’s tactic to flatter pear shaped figures with the South pleated knee length skirt – this will also keep your legs cool on hot nights

Finish with the amazing Iron Fist lacey days platform shoes. When you’ve been so sensible with the rest of your outfit then you may as well have some fun with your shoes.

And the Fiorelli floral constantin cross body bag is the perfect party bag. It’ll hold all your essentials but is cute and compact so it won’t detract attention from your outfit

Good luck to Leona and Dennis in their relationship!
