In a shock move, Jessie J chose to cover up for the 2012 GQ Men of the Year Awards earlier this week.

The singer, who’s best known for her outlandish, skintight outfits, was barely recognisable in this double-breasted Emilio Pucci gown.

Yes, there’s still that flash of leg, triangle of bare back and plunging neckline, but the sheer volume of the dress was enough to prompt me to do a double-take.

The cut is divine on Jessie, as are the sequinned lapels and handy pockets. The metallic shoes are also gorgeous and the gold locket is the perfect eye-catcher.

Is it just me or has her hair been toned down from jet black to a softer brunette? The dewy cheek and orange lip also add a feminine touch.
