As a special guest, L'Oreal ambassador Cheryl certainly brought the sparkle to the event.
She boldly appeared to go unsupported beneath a jumpsuit that displayed her fuller bust with the help of a see-through fabric on the chest and a subtle, nude bra.
Elsewhere, the jumpsuit skimmed over her lower belly - an area that she has been keen to keep under wraps in recent weeks.

Only that afternoon, as Cheryl arrived in the French capital for the final few days of Paris Fashion Week, she courted controversy by further shrouding her frame.
The ex-Girls Aloud singer and former X Factor judge enveloped her figure with an oversized camel coat that she kept constantly closed.
With her eyes shielded behind a pair of sunglasses, Cheryl appeared to be in a subdued mood while repeatedly clasping the garment across her lower belly.
Similarly - in her first social media snapshot since pregnancy rumours were sparked last month - Cheryl's stomach was cropped out of a promotional image, last week.
Instead of denying the pregnancy claims, the singer's PR team appeared to add fuel the fire by tweeting a well-cropped selfie that cut just above her mid-section.
Cheryl has been dating X Factor hopeful-turned-boyband heartthrob Liam since February but they were reportedly secretly dating as early as December 2015.

Cheryl first met Liam when he was a singing contestant on the X Factor - on which she served as a judge at the time - in 2008.
Baby-faced Liam was 14 when he first auditioned for the show but he returned as a solo artist in 2010 only to be partnered with Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Louise Tomlinson, who went on to become global boyband One Direction.
They confirmed that they were dating after much speculation when he posted the first joint snapshot of the duo on social media.

More recently, fans speculated that Liam was using his social media to send a hint about Cheryl's 'pregnancy'.
Social media was abuzz with speculation when Liam changed his Twitter bio to say he was 'the happiest man in the world'.

A source told The Sun of the snaps: 'She had a massive pregnancy pillow which helps make your bump more comfortable when you're trying to sleep.
'She was asking the assistant for advice about another kind that she wanted.'
Meanwhile, Cheryl and her second husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini are yet to finalise their divorce, after their separation was announced in January.
The couple had been married for just 18 months but living apart for five months by this time, splitting on their secret second wedding anniversary.
The divorce has reportedly stalled due to his reluctance to sign a 'no talk' order.

The singer is being prevented from taking her relationship with new love interest Liam to the next level due to her ex's refusal to sign documentations banning him from talking about their short-lived marriage.
'J-B has moved on, it's been a really tough year for him with his father dying, leaving him the only remaining member of his family,' a friend of the Frenchman revealed to The Mirror.
'Then there is getting divorced and being bound by a confidentially agreement – which means he can never defend himself or clarify any false reports.
'He'd never say anything bad about Cheryl but he realised a long time ago, when he had to deal with everything alone, she wasn't the girl for him,' the pal continued on in hopes of clarifying Jean-Bernard's stubbornness.
The Geordie beauty married Jean-Bernard in 2014 after a three month courtship. She announced their separation earlier this year.
Since the uncoupling, Jean-Bernard is reported to have found solace in his estranged wife's friend, Vanessa Perroncel.
And it is his strong-willed stance against signing the papers that will inhibit Cheryl from ploughing ahead with her relationship with One Direction's Liam.
Cheryl was previously married to footballer Ashley Cole for four years, between 2006 and 2010.
