Taking the theme of the night rather literally: TOWIE's Lucy Mecklenburgh steps out to Lingerie Awards in underwear-style dress
06:40 GMT, 20 September 2012
It was a swanky bash to celebrate the great and good of the lingerie design world.
And Lucy Mecklenburgh decided to take full advantage of the theme of Wednesday evening by stepping out in an underwear-inspired dress.
Attending the UK Lingerie Awards 2012 at London's Mayfair One venue, the Only Way Is Essex star made sure to stand out from the crowd by showcasing her killer curves in a revealing dress.

The black and cream lace spaghetti-strap top of the garment could have more than passed for a bra, and the 21-year-old beauty made sure to show off her assets in all their glory by wearing her hair off her shoulders.
Accentuating her hourglass curves with a red bandage-style skirt, the reality star looked her usual stunning self as she hit the red carpet.
But casting a protective eye over his lady was Lucy's co-star fiance, Mario Falcone, who looked dapper in a tailored black suit and crisp white shirt.

The couple seemed to be having a whale of a time at the event, with Lucy even making a new pal in the form of Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding.
Posting a snap of the pair on her Twitter page, she said: 'Me & Sarah Harding at the @UKLingerieAward .. Xx.'
Lucy and Mario – whose sister, Giovanna, is married to McFly's Tom Fletcher – also got the opportunity to spend some quality time with the band's guitarist Danny Jones and his model girlfriend Georgia Horsley, with the group cuddling up for a photo together.

It would have been something of a TOWIE reunion for Lucy at the bash, with former cast member Maria Fowler also in attendance, flaunting her curves in a skimpy monochrome number.
Sarah Harding, who shocked onlookers by puckering up to a snake on the red carpet, singer Natasha Hamilton and former WAG Lizzie Cundy were also among those who turned out for the occasion.
