She only got engaged at the end of last year but it seems Holly Valance is already auditioning wedding dresses.
The 29-year-old star arrived at a Marie Curie fundraiser last night wearing what looked like a stunning bridal gown.
The actress-turned-singer was joined by her fianc Nick Candy who popped the question to her during a romantic holiday in the Maldives.

Perhaps Valance was testing out the traditional colour before choosing her actual wedding attire.
The beautiful floor-length garment highlighted her slender figure and featured a lace top and long-sleeves.
The former Strictly Come Dancing star teamed the dress with a pair of gold heels and also carried an Alexander McQueen clutch bag as she made her way inside Claridges.

She had pulled her long hair up into a chic bun and wore minimal make-up as she posed with billionaire Candy.
He too could have been practicing his look for their upcoming nuptials wearing a smart black suit with a matching tie to the event – which raised 620,000 in total.
Once inside, Valance and Candy were treated to a lavish dinner and listened to speeches from host Heather Kerzner, Matthew Freud and Saffron Aldridge who highlighted their personal gratitude to Marie Curie Cancer Care nurses.
Freud spoke movingly about Philip Gould and his journey and acceptance of terminal cancer and a copy of his book was included in guests’ goody bags, which they picked up after watching a screening of When I Die: Lessons from the Death Zone.
Despite wearing such a beautiful dress, Valance no doubt has her eye on an expensive designer dress for her big day.

Last year, the Australian star admitted being in love with a billionaire sometimes irked her friends.
She said: 'I've got such a disgusting, wide, smug grin on my face all the time that my friends just want to slap me. I’ve never been so happy…
'I am a spoilt brat. My friends and my sister say: “I hate you!” when I show them what he’s bought me.'
