The Mama Do singer first turned the heads on the red carpet in her floor-length gown, which was decorated all over with chunky silver sequins.
Featuring a thin mesh section at the top, the dress gave a sexy glimpse of her decolletage before it extended down into its striking vertical shimmering stripes.
Adding a further chic element to the look, Pixie layered a chunky black belt on top at her middle, to cinch in and enhance her enviably petite waist.

While she kept accessorises minimal to maintain focus on the show-stopping dress, the singer glammed up the look by styling her blonde locks into big and bold curls - drawing attention to her dewy make-up stunning features.
Carrying a tiny black box bag and of course, sporting her new engagement rock on her finger, Pixie oozed confidence as she playfully held her skirt out for the cameras.
The singer appeared to fly solo at the event - leaving her new fiancé Oliver Cheshire behind for her night on the town.

After dating the blonde for more than six years, the male model popped the question outside St Paul's Cathedral last month.
Pixie exclaimed it was the 'biggest surprise ever' as she showed off a dazzling diamond ring on Instagram, adding simply in the photo's caption: 'so happy.'
Talking on the red carpet about the emotional moment, the blonde beauty exclusively told MailOnline: 'It's still sinking in because I wasn't expecting it!'
'I just burst into tears [when it happened]. I was so tired and jet lagged as I'd just got back from LA and we'd been at a wedding party the night before... I'd had no sleep, so I just burst into tears, for once I was speechless! My mascara went everywhere.'

Having shown off her ring in excitement, the Essex native did admit that she is very cautious with her new sparkler, due to her often forgetful personality.
She explained: 'I'm getting used to wearing this ring - it was actually too big and I had to get it resized three times, but now I can wear it and I don't want to take it off because I lose everything, and I'm worried I'll lose it. That would be very bad.'
However while the pair are still celebrating their upcoming union, the Boys and Girls crooner admits they have not yet started planning the nuptials themselves.
Still in shock: Talking on the red carpet about the emotional moment, the blonde beauty exclusively told MailOnline: ' It's still sinking in because I wasn't expecting it!'
She confessed: 'I really haven't gone into plans yet. Next year's going to be super busy with new music and other stuff and I don't want to rush because it I want it to be absolutely perfect.'
Although she did add that she did not want to wait too long to marry her handsome beau: 'If I don't get time to do it then it'll definitely by 2018 for sure.'
Mirroring Pixie's eye-catching style in time for the holiday season was Fearne Cotton, who hit the carpet next in a daring scarlet ensemble.

The former Radio 1 host looked classically glamorous in the one-shoulder number, which was formed entirely of a bright red glittery material.
Cutting out at one side and extending into a sleeve on the other, the frock then skimmed and flattered her slim figure straight down to the floor.
Keeping thoroughly co-ordinated, Fearne then paired the glamorous outfit with matching shoes, which featured thin straps to give a glimpse of one of her many trademark tattoos.

Also matching the colour of the carpet at the event was singer Emeli Sande, who kept things sophisticated and demure in an unusual roll neck gown.
The dress appeared to be of a knitted material, featuring a wintry high neckline just a single seam down the middle as decoration.

However despite its loose fit the frock still managed to flatter her womanly curves, by perfectly hugging her ample chest before cascading to the floor in a waterfall hem.
Young star Zara Larsson was next to arrive - showing off her kooky style in a metallic mini dress layered on top of a crisp striped shirt.
The Swedish beauty, 18, was not afraid to bare the flesh in the thigh-skimming mini dress of shimmering charcoal which hugged her enviably slender frame.

However making the look more high-fashion and on trend was the pinstriped blue shirt underneath - which she pulled into a plunging, off-shoulder style to show off her golden skin and tease at her cleavage.
Maintaining the trendy feel throughout, the pop sensation accessorised with a chunky diamanté choker and swept her hair into a cute high bun, which left a few soft strands loose to frame her face.
With her clear and glowing complexion clear for all to see, Zara admitted that her naturally gorgeous skin was simply down to good genes rather than a specific beauty regime.

She told MailOnline at the event: 'My mum always had perfect skin, my sisters got perfect skin. She never uses make up, but I had acne for a while, I was needing antibiotics and everything. I had to use a lot of creams - I still do.
Also discussing her ever-growing music career, the blonde gushed that 2016 has been 'huge' but that she feels she's established her place in the European industry.
She said: 'I like that Europe's got my back when I walk into offices in America, because I know America didn't like Lush Life - they were too late to hop on the train and look how lush life blew up.'
Before adding on her bigger goals: 'My dream is to really make it in America because if you make it there you make it everywhere.'

Matt Goss also attended the event in a more striking look of a white suit jacket and waistcoat, red leather trousers and black trainers.
Things may have been slightly awkward for the singer, as his rumoured flame Rebecca Ferguson followed on the carpet soon after.
However the Bros singer was quick to shoot down any romance claims, as he admitted the former X Factor star was 'lovely' but that he is still single.
On the market: Matt Goss was quick to shoot down romance claims, as he admitted to MailOnline that rumoured flame Rebecca Ferguson was 'lovely' but that he is still single
Talking to MailOnline on the carpet about the speculation, he said: 'That just took on a life of its own. I know Rebecca, we spoke today and she's lovely.'
'But I'm single and the good thing is it's a nice feeling when you meet someone, especially as lovely as Rebecca, and you talk, but that happens at our pace and not anyone else's.'
Atop his love life, Matt discussed his new music - after releasing new single Gone Too Long - when he was grilled if he would be putting out new music with Bros.
High praise: Talking of the former X Factor star, who was at the same event in a chic black skirt and jacket co-ord, he said: 'I know Rebecca, we spoke today and she's lovely'
He told MailOnline: 'First things first, it's taken so long to get us on stage. I've got to be very diplomatic with what I say so I just wanna get on stage with my brother, get these arena shows done and then see how we go.'
Adding to the male guest list was rocker Adam Lambert - who jazzed up the traditional suit look with a purple acid wash tailored ensemble.
Having placed second on American Idol back in 2009, the rocker has since garnered a following in the UK after touring with rock legends Queen.

He said: 'I spoke to him the other night and he's in great spirits. He's so excited for potentially doing more performances next year, I can't really say much more than that but he's in a really good place.'
Not the only big British name Adam has mingled with however, he also gushed excitedly about recently meeting Robbie Williams - who has been calling the young rock singer 'beautiful' for years.

The singer explained of their meeting in Australia: 'I had heard things about Robbie for years, about how amazing he was and how lovely he was.'
'We finally got a chance to meet and we instantly hit it off, he's such a cool guy. He was talking to me about his wife and child and I think we're gonna try and hang out in LA. I wanna meet his baby!'
Having toured all over the world across the duration of the year, as well as making an appearance in Fox's Rocky Horror Picture Show, it is no wonder that the Indiana native is ready for some much-needed rest this Christmas.

He laughed: 'I'm gonna go home and chill the hell out. I've been working all year, I've been touring, I've been traveling, so I'm gonna go home chill with friends and family and try and absorb 2016 because it was kind of a crazy year.'
