"Getting ready for the Balmain dinner @balmain HAI HAIRCUT," she captioned the first photo, a profile shot showcasing her chic new look.

Ellie has opted for a new sleek shoulder-length bob

It wasn't just Ellie's new hair which turned heads at the glamorous dinner. The young star dazzled in a floor-length glittering gown from Balmain's Pre-Fall 2015 collection, which featured a daring plunging neckline, completing her glitzy ensemble with a pair of black and gold strappy sandals. When it came to beauty Ellie was the ultimate English rose with barely-there make-up save for a touch of blush for a healthy glow, thick and full lashes with a slick of black mascara, and to finish off, a touch of nude lipgloss.

The Burn singer, who was not joined by boyfriend Dougie Poynter for the event, mingled with models including Lily Donaldson and Amber Le Bon throughout the evening, as well as catching up with Olivier following his successful show during Paris Fashion Week last month. Fashionistas including Jourdan Dunn and Poppy Delevingne also stepped out for the evening, both dazzling in fringed long-sleeved minidresses by Balmain. Later in the evening, Lily and Jourdan stole the show on the dancefloor as they laughed and danced with Olivier at the after party.
