Lauren Laverne was at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden, London today to announce the Barclaycard Mercury Prize ’2011 Albums of the Year’.

She did so wearing a Topshop leopard print dress.

The dress was paired with a black studded leather belt, tights and black suede ankle boots with a spiked detailed heel.

This is pretty much how everyone is dressing in London at the moment. Tights and all because our summer (more like autumn) sucks big time.

Despite this look being weather appropriate, it’s also a fun look which she accessorized perfectly.

The twelve albums shortlisted for this year’s Barclaycard Mercury Prize are:

Adele – 21
Anna Calvi – Anna Calvi
Elbow – Build A Rocket Boys!
Everything Everything – Man Alive
Ghostpoet – Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam
Gwilym Simcock – Good Days At Schloss Elmau
James Blake – James Blake
Katy B – On A Mission
King Creosote & Jon Hopkins – Diamond Mine
Metronomy – The English Riviera
PJ Harvey – Let England Shake
Tinie Tempah – Disc-Overy
