She rose to fame as a shy and retiring singer on Britain's The X Factor back in 2006.
But over the last six years Leona Lewis has certainly come out of her shell, in both personality and style.
And today the singer ensured she was noticed as she dressed in a stand out frock ready to fly out of Los Angeles back to England.

The 27-year-old wore a vibrant purple maxi-dress with big chunky heels to catch the flight from LAX.
She finished her look off with a loose fitting camouflage jacket and sunglasses while her hair was worn wavy and down.
Leona couldn't keep the smile off her face – and it's because she couldn't wait to get her feet back on home soil.
