However, Cheryl need not have worried about competition in the style stakes from fellow judge Rita Ora as the Kosovan-born singer was unable to attend the event.

Cheryl silenced body shamers who say she has lost too much weight as she radiated happiness and a healthy glow on the red carpet.

Wearing a €3,000 velvet floral dress by cult label Balmain and Giuseppe Zanotti gold sandals, the X Factor judge looked happier than ever.

The Geordie native recently silenced rumours that she was suffering from an eating disorder.

"No, I'm not anorexic," she insisted. "It all started with a girl on Instagram calling us a bag of bones."

The star, who married entrepreneur Jean-Bernard Fernandez Versini in a surprise ceremony lasts summer, insists that her thin frame is down to her hectic work schedule.

"I work 12 to 14 hours a day. I don't even have time at the moment to exercise - and I don't need to either."

"It's nice that people are concerned, but honestly there's no cause for concern. You can see I am completely and utterly well and happy," she told The Mirror.

Indeed, her fellow judge Simon Cowell has agreed that the former Girls Aloud star is now in a "good place" since finding love with husband Jean Bernard.

"She's definitely happier than she was a year ago, much happier ... I think sometimes you can go through years when everything gets a bit too much and I think for Cheryl - I don't know what it was about last year - there was something off," he told HELLO! Magazine.
