She became the shock exit on The X Factor on Sunday night, after initially being labelled as the favourite to win this year's show.

But teenager Ella Henderson has managed to remain dignified since departing the series.

And she's already getting used to her new found showbiz lifestyle, despite no longer being part of the programme.

On Tuesday night the 16-year-old mingled with a host of stars as she was invited to the Amy Winehouse Foundation Ball, even rubbing shoulders with James Arthur, the man who was saved instead of her on Sunday night's X Factor.

But she seems to have accepted the shock as she looked perfectly happy and content as she posed up on the pink carpet.

She wore a cute navy velvet dress with belt detailing, tights and boots, while her hair was worn up in her staple bouffant half up 'do.

Ella posed with her hand on her hip as she composed herself for the attention she would no doubt be receiving.

And James Arthur was also among the guests in honour of the late Back To Black singer.

He wore a a suit jacket with skinny jeans and a thin tie as he turned out at the bash at London's Dorchester Hotel.

Among the other stars were firmer Made In Chelsea star Kimberley Garner, who ignored the predominant black tie theme by standing out in a bright coral frock.

The floorlength gown did, of course, show off her back while she bared even more flesh with the very high side-split.

Catalina Guirado also went for bright as she wore a similar pink gown to the bash.
