Former X Factor contestant Ella Henderson has certainly grown up judging by her red carpet appearance at the Brit Awards last night!

The singer, 18, was pictured outside the O2 Arena in London wearing a very revealing black dress with cutout detail around the bust. It did, however, have a clever nude panel to protect her modesty!

Ella's blonde hair also appears to have been lightened and was curled and swept to one side. Very glam!

After walking the red carpet, Ella took to Twitter and admitted to fans: "Well that was mental. #redcarpet #BRITs2014 @BRITAwards x."
