Nicola Hughes knows how to make an impact.

The Irish beauty queen turned reality star (27) might have been competing with Cara Delevingne and Rihanna for column inches at Monday night's London premiere of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, but that didn't stop her from pulling out all the stops.

The former model, from Dublin's Sandyford, opted for a neon green silk wrap dress, offset by her newly dyed pink hair, which she wore her hair in festival-ready buns.

Nicoloa took the pink plunge earlier this month and has embraced the funkier hue for summer. Since moving to London in 2015 to be with now ex-boyfriend Alex Mytton and appear on E4's Made in Chelsea, she has been busy making a name for herself across the pond, thanks largely to her 216,000 Instagram followers since leaving the reality show last year.

While Mytton has moved on with Kate Moss' younger sister Lottie, who also recently dyed her hair pink, Nicola is currently dating Charles Tupper. The same Charles Tupper who dated Binky Felstead after she broke up with Alex Mytton.

And you thought your relationships were complicated?
