Nicola McLean steals attention with outrageous plunging neckline, as she outshines Amy Childs


How is it possible to outshine Amy Childs in a cutaway leopard print dress Take the plunge like Nicola McLean, of course

It's not easy to upstage a lady in a cutaway leopard dress – especially when it's Amy Childs.

However, hats off to Nicola McLean who stole the show tonight with an outrageous plunging neckline.

The former Celebrity Big Brother housemate, 30, stepped out in the daring creation at the Pia Michi launch party and catwalk show held at The Millenium Hotel in Grosvenor Square in central London.

Posing with her hands on her hips, it was difficult to focus anywhere else other than her cleavage.

While Nicola's dress, a floor-length
gown speckled with Dalmation spots and peacock feathers, had a lot of
colourful detail, all eyes were undoubtedly drawn to her chest which her
pendant nuzzled in.

Quick change! Amy was thought to have changed into a purple number after wearing the same dress as another guest

Amy, on the other hand, wasn't too far behind in the eye-popping stakes.

The Essex beauty, who shot to fame on
ITV2 show TOWIE, paraded on the red carpet in a leopard print frock
that appeared to be made of faux snake skin, and featured cutaway detail
on the side.

The panels against her torso were glittered with sequins and chunky metallic jewels.

Earlier in the day, the redhead had
been practising with cousin Harry Derbidge ahead of their Let's Dance
For Comic Relief performance, which will kick off on Saturday night.

She tweeted: 'Busy day today ,
rehearsing with @MrHarryDerbidge for #letsdancecomicrelief , then
tonight @Piamichi party …… ;)'

Katie Price's protg Amy Willerton, 19, also put in an appearance, busy on her quest to take over the reigns from her infamous mentor as red carpet queen.

Sky Sports presenter Charlotte Jackson showed her fellow female specimens that it's possible to look sexy, while still looking demure.

The blonde bombshell protected her modesty in a high neck Grecian gown, instead flaunting a little flesh at the back.

Yet Lizzie Cundy was in keeping with the theme, stepping out in a black sequin dress with a sheer upper bodice slashed to the navel, reminiscent of someone from a Hollywood casino.

Several ladies played it safe in all-black ensembles, with Vanessa Feltz and her daughter also opting for dark shades, alongside Daniella Westbrook and designer Pia Michi herself.
