She was trying a new look, ditching the usual trainers for designer heels.
But Eliza Doolottle was let down by her dress which looked as though it had been through a paper shredder.
The singer was caught out by a gust of wind after attending the launch of pop-up restaurant The Lion at the Brompton Club in South Kensington, London.

The black number, which featured spaghetti straps and cut out panels at the front, blew open to reveal her slender legs. And the star looked a little worse-for-wear as she headed home in the back of a taxi.
The 24-year-old paired the dress with white and silver Christian Louboutin heels, gold earrings and a black fringe bag adorned with colourful beads.

There was no sign of Eliza's boyfriend, Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden, who was thought to be back in Los Angeles, but she still managed to speak to him via Skype when she arrived home.
The brunette tweeted a photo of the 33-year-old lazed in front of his computer chatting to her. Her own photo can be seen in front of the screen. She wrote simply 'Cyber love'.
Joining Eliza last night was popstar Pixie Lott who opted for a black, button-up dress with a white collar and black wedges.

Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts was also there, dressing down slightly in a white printed T-shirt and long black skirt.
Saturdays singer Mollie King's ex-boyfriend David Gandy was also there,
attending his first public event since he gave an interview on their
break-up for the first time.
Nicola and Eliza posed for photos with U.S. Entourage star Jeremy Piven, who is in London to shoot the Mr Selfridge movie.

The couple announced their split in
February after 10 months together, with Gandy at the time claiming 'it
wasn't the right timing'.
However, two months down the line, the Essex-native admitted his 'weirdness' can be challenging for other people to live with.
The Dolce & Gabbana pin-up tells the June issue: 'My perfectionism can make it difficult. I know my ex-girlfriend struggled.
have to be perfect – everything in the house, every car I buy. That’s
incredibly hard to live with if you don’t understand it.'

Although he was disappointed their romance didn't work out, Gandy admitted he is happy being single.
He explained: 'I can get on with my own life, my own ‘perfections’, without needing to explain that weirdness to someone else.
'If either a relationship or my work must suffer, then I’m afraid it has to be the relationship.
32 and more than anything I want to find a girlfriend and have
children. I want to be able to say, “I've done enough”. Hopefully, one
day a girl will come along and I'll think she's far superior to my work
and let my priorities go.'
