Trick of the light Samantha Cameron has 'lollipop head' look at charity event

She was pictured pounding the pavement last week but it seems Samantha Cameron may be taking her exercise regime too far.

Either that or the Prime Minister's wife was the victim of some bad lighting at a charity event last night.

SamCam looked stylish but slender wearing a Peter Pilotto print dress, opaque tights and Next shoes.

She was joined by big names from the worlds of music, showbusiness, politics and art for a blues night to raise money for Save The Children.

Samantha, an ambassador for the charity, was among guests at A Night Of Blues at the Roundhouse in Camden, north London.

The dinner, auction and performances by artists Dr John, James Cotton, Jocelyn Brown and Maceo Parker was held to raise funds to help give children around the world a chance to fulfil their potential.

Mrs Cameron said: 'I'm delighted I could join Save The Children for this evening of amazing performances.

'As an ambassador for the charity, I am committed to supporting their life-saving work and it's fundraising events like this that play a big part in improving the lives of children that need it most.'

Supermodel Erin O'Connor said she hoped she had helped 'in a small way' by being at the event.

'Having just recently returned from a trip to India, it's impossible to under-estimate the impact that Save The Children has once you have seen the positive benefits of their work which enable children to live their lives,' she said.

'It is imperative that we all continue to support Save The Children by raising vital funds. Events like this are great in raising awareness and I'm happy I can help in a small way by being here.'

Other guests included actress Helena Bonham-Carter with her partner, director Tim Burton, newsreader Natasha Kaplinksy, actress Gillian Anderson, and rock star Ronnie Wood.

Kaplinsky said: 'Save The Children is very close to my heart, it's lovely to see all these people supporting it.'

Other attendees at the event included singer KT Tunstall, actor Toby Jones, comedian Alexander Armstrong, actresses Olivia Williams and Fiona Shaw, novelist Helen Fielding, and Education Secretary Michael Gove.
