Last Tuesday evening at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in London, music industry journalists gathered hear Whitney Houston’s new album “I Look To You”.

This will be the first album of original material Whitney has recorded since 2002.

At the event Whitney’s album artwork was revealed.

The star looks refreshed and beautiful – but slightly over airbrushed – wearing an elegant Herve Leger one-shoulder sliver and white striped dress.

Her hair was beautifully coiffed with honey coloured highlights, signally that the star is back with some style.

A second piece of artwork sees the singer looking sexier wearing a black paillette covered Carmen Marc Valvo Spring 2009 dress with a square neckline.

Her hair is straight whilst she gives us a sassy pose.

Songs for the album have been produced and written by Black Eyed Peas singer, songwriter Sean Garrett and R&B singer Akon.

The album will be available on September 1 and I can’t wait.
