The pregnant X Factor star was the belle of the ball on the red carpet

All eyes were bound to be on Dannii Minogue at this year’s National Television Awards, held at the O2 Arena in London, as she made her first red carpet appearance since announcing her pregnancy.

And, wow, did The X Factor judge give us something to look at – Dannii stepped out in a fantastic black and white striped prom dress with killer lipstick-red heels.

Amid a sea of floor-sweepers, purple dresses (as seen at the Golden Globes) and clingy, slashed-to-the thigh numbers, Dannii was the belle of the ball in her 50s-style frock.

Her favourite Australian label J’Aton Couture reworked a vintage Victor Costa dress for her. But if it was to accommodate her baby bump, it didn’t show – Dannii looked as sleek and sexy as ever.

Dannii stepped out in many J’Aton Couture designs during the 2009 series of The X Factor as she was pitted against fellow judge Cheryl Cole in the style stakes each week.

Celebrating and laughing backstage with Cheryl,who was wearing Stéphane Rolland, and their fellow X Factor judge Simon Cowell after the show scooped the award for Most Popular Talent Show, Dannii definitely had that pregnancy glow about her.
