She got caught out with unshaven armpits at the London premiere of The Dark Knight Rises last night.
But Pixie Lott wasn't about to make the same mistake twice.
After having forgotten one very important part of her grooming routine the previous evening, the 21-year-old singer made sure to cover any lurking underarm fuzz as she attended the European premiere of The Art of Rap this evening.

Other stars to have gone au naturel in the past include Beyonc, Britney Spears and Sharon Stone.

However, Pixie can't have been aware that Made In Chelsea star Kimberley Garner would choose a very similar aquamarine halterneck dress to wear to the event.
But while Kimberley showed off her slender figure in the outfit, Pixie went for a more modesty approach, and covered up her cleavage in the long dress.
Pixie, who has designed numerous collections for high-street store Lipsy, spoke previously about her fashion sense, and said she doesn't feel the need to shed her clothes to attract attention.
