The hot pants must be in the wash: Alexandra Burke covers up in a rather demure outfit
23:30 GMT, 18 April 2012
She isn't normally the kind of person that likes to cover up and hide her body.
But, last night Alexandra Burke surprised everyone with her rather demure and low key fashion style.
The 23-year-old arrived at the The Village, Westfield London, for the Fashion Playground event sporting a simple look.
Cloak and dagger: Alexandra Burke arrived at Westfield London with her curves covered, last night
The Elephant singer was uncharacteristically hiding her curves under a thick short jacket with large lapels and had her hair pulled back in a simple ponytail.
She teamed that with a pair of plain black trousers and a pair of leather boots which she accessorised with a small white handbag.
Her fans are more used to seeing her both on and off the stage in hot-pants and other revealing outfits that show off her legs.

Burke, who has just been confirmed to perform at the 2012 T4 on the Beach, enjoyed herself and said on Twitter: 'Had a great time the @Westfieldlondon Fashion Playground. #funtimes'.
The former X Factor champion was slightly overshadowed by TOWIE star Georgina Dorsett who made sure all eyes were on her.
The 27-year-old looked great in a pair of leather trousers which she wore with a see-through white blouse and strappy heels.
She may only be a supporting character in the hit reality TV show but she ensured she was the leading lady at the shopping event.
