They are not shy about showing some skin when they take to the stage in their fun and funky ensembles.

But on Friday evening Little Mix decided to up their game somewhat showing that they have come a long way from their days on X Factor as they celebrated Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s 22nd birthday. 

And leading the way the birthday girl looked both stylish and sexy as she hit 55 Club in London alongside her equally glamorous and sophisticated looking bandmates.

Looking excited for her evening out the singer slipped on the strapless black frock which featured a split up the thigh and a plunging neckline with gold detailing. 

 

Creating a seventies inspired look she wore her hair in big bouncy curls and added a pair of gold hoop earrings.

She certainly wasn’t the only member of the group to show some skin though – newly engaged Perrie Edwards  opted for a dress with a plunging neckline.

The black frock fell to the middle of her calves and while it did show off her cleavage she managed to remain looking chic.

Jesy Nelson, who has become known for being the most daring in the group when it comes to fashion,  turned heads in her leather outfit.

The pretty star wore a skintight pencil skirt with a matching bandeau style top which revealed a glimpse of her cleavage and her midriff.

Adding a touch of colour to the group was Jade Thirlwell, who opted for a fun blue jumpsuit which featured cut-out sections around the side.

Completing her look she wore bright blue eye-shadow, while her hair fell in loose waves around her shoulders and down her back.

Ahead of their evening the group took to Twitter to wish Leigh-Anne happy birthday.

While Perrie added: ‘Happy birthday Leigh Leigh (Pocahontas) my beautiful sister! I love you more than anything! Hope you have the best birthday ever! Perrie <3’

They all looked lovely but I notice that DM has not commented on the fact that surely Perrie must have known that flashbulbs make things go see through etc.... Jesy and Leighanne's outfits are stand out. I think this is a style that they should cultivate. Much more flattering.

You'd have thought Jesy would be happy with her new figure but not a smile in a single picture. Too sexy to smile?? I don't think so...... Cut her off from the neck up, and she looks great, but what a sour face....
