Good evening, everyone! Lea Michele waved and beamed at the cameras as she led the Hollywood glitz on the red carpet at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards
It is one of the biggest events on the UK showbiz calendar and gives our girls a chance to dazzle and shine and show off the Best of British on the red carpet.
But the Glamour Women of the Year Awards is also not one to be missed by the leading ladies across the Pond, who make the pilgrimage every year to Mayfair in London for the ceremony.
And leading Tinsel Town's girls was Glee's Lea Michele who looked sensational in a long dark blue strapless gown with a mermaid tail. She waved at the cameras and flashed her big beaming smile as she arrived at the event in Mayfair's Berkeley Square. Lea was joined at the event by actress Jessica Alba who had flown in especially for the party with her make-up artist friend by her side.
Frilly and fun: Jessica Alba arrived at the bash in a long black chiffon gown
And her pal did a great job making her look glamorous as she arrived wearing a long black gown with lace and chiffon around the neckline and shoulders, her make-up immaculate and her hair pinned up on her head.
Also attending was former X Factor judge Kelly Rowland who also opted for a mermaid tail dress but hers had a halterneck and was decorated with a big white feather pattern.
Sensational: Kelly Rowland looked a million dollars in her halterneck mermaid tail dress as she arrived at the party
Mind the frock! Thanks to a quick-thinking member of Kelly's crew, her dress was rescued from being dragged along the road as she stopped to talk to reporters
Other A-listers who had flown across the Atlantic especially to be here included Eva Longoria, who, after a week of parading a number of glamorous frocks during Cannes, decided to tone it down for tonight's party.
She arrived in an orange dress and looked like she was off for a girlie lunch instead of a red carpet bash but still managed to look fantastic.
