Florence Welch had three wardrobe changes for her performances at VH1’s Divas Celebrate Soul event, which was held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City last night.

The most uncharacteristic was her Emilio Pucci embellished dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

Usually Florence performs in gowns, so this festive ornate velvet dress is quite a departure from her recognisable style.

The glamorous dress, which is elegantly offset with crystal embellishments, was teamed with plum ankle-strap pumps.

Florence’s second look was a Naeem Khan Fall 2011 gown which she wore with a gold camisole.

This fully embellished batwing gown is more typical of Florence’s performance style.

I love the colour against her pale skin. It’s the perfect look for a grand performance.

It’s not often we see Florence wearing black – in fact, I can’t recall her ever wearing black – but she smoulders as she performs in this black Temperley London Spring 2012 tuxedo gown with a plunging neckline and thigh-high split.

Unfortunately the dark background is preventing us from seeing all the details on her gown.
