My first reaction to seeing Jessica Stam at the American Ballet Theatre’s 2012 Gala was ‘What is Jessie J doing in New York?’.

I don’t think I will ever get used to seeing Jessica with dark raven locks.

The model looked sensational attending this glamorous event wearing a Valentino gown.

This striking signature lace gown with a lace draping and cascading ruffles was beautifully styled with a matching Valentino mini ‘VaVaVoom’ leather shoulder bag (worn as a clutch) and bedazzling peep-toes.

She gave us more bedazzlement with silver cuffs and stunning statement earrings.
