Paloma Faith turned heads in a show-stopping sequinned dress as she arrived at a star-studded party in London.

All eyes were on the singer as she walked into the Royal Academy of Arts party at Burlington House on Wednesday.

Her sparkly floor-length dress featured a black skirt, high neck and a dramatic pink and white bodice, with full sleeves.

Faith wore her blonde hair around her shoulders and carried a simple clutch.

A raft of stars attended the summer exhibition preview party, including Doctor Who actor Peter Capaldi, singer Charli XCX and actress Anya Taylor-Joy.

Actress Kristin Scott Thomas also caught a few eyes, looking far younger than her 58 years in trousers printed with polka dots and butterflies and shades shielding her eyes from the evening sunshine.
