Leona Lewis dazzles in a purple tulle off-the-shoulder gown

Leona Lewis was honoured with singing at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Albert Hall in London on Saturday evening.

The songstress, 34, dazzled on the night in a glitzy purple tulle gown as she took to the stage to perform a selection of tracks to a crowd of servicemen and veterans.

This year’s event marks 75 years since notable battles of 1944, which included Monte Cassino, Kohima and Imphal, D-Day and the collaboration of Commonwealth and Allied forces.

Leona’s stunning floor-length dress featured a pretty off-the-shoulder neckline and a form-fitting top half, before flowing into a dramatic jewel encrusted skirt.

The dress was heavily embellished across her midriff, as she decided to keep the attention on the gown by forgoing any accessories.

However Leona did choose to show her support for the Poppy Appeal by wearing the small red flower pinned to her dress.

Leona wore her curly locks in a loose natural style, while highlighting her pretty features in soft touches of make-up in a shimmering bronze pallet.

Leona, who released her last single in 2015, is working hard back in the recording studio following her wedding to Dennis in the summer.

The couple exchanged vows in Tuscany at Sting and Trudie Styler’s lavish 16th-century vineyard and estate, Il Palagio, on July 27 in front of 180 friends and family members.
