Christina Aguilera steps out in figure hugging style

SINGER Christina Aguilera was honoured for her contribution to the arts last night.

The Voice judge was delighted with the award at the 2012 NCLR ALMA Awards.

The beaming mum-of-one (31) stepped out in black figure-hugging floor-length Michael Kors dress, slashed to the thigh, and which showed off her curves to full effect.

She also chose the night to debut her new hair - a long ponytail with purple and pink highlights. Her look was complimented by a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, and Neil Lane jewellery.

The ‘Beautiful’ singer later later stepped the honour at the ceremony last night, which highlighted the best American Latino contributions to music, film and television.

The award for the ‘Candy Man’ chanteuse came two nights after the official release of her new song ‘Your Body’ and two months before the launch of her seventh studio album.

Currently, she is enjoying success as a coach on the American voice of ‘The Voice’. The new series is now going head to head with Simon Cowell’s US version of X Factor.
