Leona Lewis showcases Lilyana Maslenishka’s dress and performs ‘Hurt’ at Royal Variety Performance 2011

Leona Lewis asked fashion designers to submit a dress for her to wear at the Royal Variety Performance earlier this year and last week, the former X Factor winner wore her special creation.

The ‘Collide’ hitmaker requested that the dress be ethically friendly and revealed that she was hoping to find the next Stella McCartney, who she would be able to work with again in the future.

The winner was chosen by Leona herself, Jo Elvin, UK Glamour Editor and fashion designer William Tempest and in the end the panel picked a design named ‘Radiance of Stars: Glamour for a Femme Fatale’ created by Lilyana Maslenishka of Bulgaria.

Leona wore the gown when she filmed her Royal Variety Performance in Manchester earlier this month and we have to admit, the brunette beauty looked exquisite in the green sparkly dress.

The star performed a cover of Nine Inch Nails and Johnny Cash’s ‘Hurt’, which she also showcased on last week’s X Factor final and will perform later this month on the X Factor USA.

It is taken from her new EP, which also includes versions of ‘Iris’ and ‘Colorblind’.
