SPOTY Awards: Katie Melua narrowly escapes a wardobe malfunction in daring dress

BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards: Songstress steps out on the red carpet in revealing black frock

Katie Melua put on a very daring display as she took to the red carpet last night.

The songstress stepped out at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards in a revealing black knee-length dress, which just about managed to contain her enviable curves.

Featuring a shaped bodice under a black mesh at the top, Katie's dress flaunted her shape - with a black pencil skirt that skimmed her knees stopping her from revealing too much.


The 28-year-old made sure to keep the rest of her look to a minimum, ditching any fussy accessories and simply wearing her curled brown locks to one side.

Taking to Twitter before their appearance, Katie revealed she was hitting the SPOTY Awards in full support of her husband.

The singer didn't seem at all fazed by her bold fashion choice either, which sees her join the ranks of a whole host of stars opting for revealing numbers this season.

Along with hot trends such as tartan and winter berry colours featuring highly on celebrities' style lists of late, a trend for cut-outs seems to have come to the forefront this season.

Kristen Stewart first worked the look on the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 red carpet, revealing her midriff in a Zuhair Murad jumpsuit in LA.

The star later stepped out in London in a sheer, nude dress by the same designer in London, wowing her fans on the red carpet.

Christina Ricci and Diane Kruger later followed suit at a host of Hollywood parties, proving the trend is not just reserved for twentysomethings.
