As the fashionista of Girls Aloud, Nicola Roberts always likes to stand out from the crowd.

Arriving at a pre-Olympics party last night, she looked incredibly glamorous in a low-cut, full-length gown.

However, while many fellow guests had teamed their couture with towering heels, Nicola decided to opt for comfort and wore a pair of Superga trainers underneath.

Arriving for the Warner Music Group's party at London's Tate Modern, the Cheshire-native wore a dramatic red column dress with sweetheart neckline, with her black and white trainers just poking out from underneath.

She then posted a close-up of her trainers on Twitter, writing: 'Party feet.'

In another image showing her dancing in the Tate's turbine hall, she wrote: 'Ball-gowns & Superga's'

The 26-year-old scraped her hair back into a bun on her head and wore gold hoop earrings and minimal make-up.

Nicola recently filmed her new TV show Styled To Rock, which features Rihanna and Henry Holland.

The Sky Living show features a group of young contestants whose fashion skills are put to the test in both designing and styling.

Meanwhile, also at the party was pop star Jamelia, who kept it simple in a fitted black dress.

Paul Weller's model daughter Leah also went for a LBD, teaming a bandage dress with nude sandals and a red clutch.

Irish TV presenter Laura Whitmore also went for a black dress, while Zara Martin went for a floaty ethereal number.

The party at the iconic South Bank art gallery comes a few days after the tragic death of a man in his forties at the venue.

He fell over 100ft from the balcony of the members' balcony to his death on Tuesday afternoon.
