Alexandra Burke has headed to New York to finish her third album, but she hasn't passed up the opportunity to party with UK singer Estelle while there too.

Alex, 25, flew to the Big Apple yesterday and wasted no time in getting her glad rags on to hit the red carpet. So much for jet lag!

She stepped out for the KWL 4th Annual Sports and Entertainment celebration and looked totally fresh faced after her flight, smiling for the cameras and schmoozing with the stars.

Wearing a black and gold patterned mini dress, Alex flaunted her toned legs and trim figure and completed her outfit with a pair of gold heels.

She styled her hair into soft curls and sported some fierce red nail varnish, which stood out against the metallic colours on her frock.

While on the red carpet, Alex teamed up for a few photos with fellow British artist Estelle, who now lives in the States.

Estelle, 34, looked cool and sophisticated in a black trouser suit and accessorised with a white clutch bag and and bright white nails.

However, it won't be all play and no work in NYC for Alexandra, as she is planning on finishing up her third studio album during her stay - something which has taken her two years to complete!

After parting ways with her record label last year, the songstress has been determined to continue pursuing her passion and has since signed a new management deal with KWL and Kevin Liles.

Coincidentally, Kevin is currently managing Estelle too, so we can imagine she and Alex had a lot to talk about at the bash last night.

It's certainly proving to be a busy year already for the former X Factor winner, since she is also training to be a life coach in a bid to bring more balance into her everyday routine.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine last week, Alex said: "I'm in a different space in my life at the moment and I'm actually currently training to be a life coach. I wanted some more balance in my life and it's definitely brought a different perspective."
