The rain may have been falling across most of the UK recently, but Tulisa has been doing her best to brighten it up by wearing a sunny yellow dress.

The X Factor judge was snapped heading out to interviews to promote the release of her debut solo single Young dressed in a pretty outfit.

She has recently been in Florida and California recording her album and the promo video for her new track, so perhaps she wanted to show off some of her new clothes, even if the weather was a bit damp out.

Wearing a bright yellow skater dress, Tulisa accessorised with a cream handbag and a gorgeous beige mac.

Bringing more colour to her outfit, she added coral nail varnish to her fingers and toes and sported huge hooped gold earrings.

But Tulisa might have wished she wore different shoes, as her feet were likely to get damp in the rain as she wore open-toed denim sandals.

Her oversized sunglasses also added to her summery look, but might not have been much use thanks to the drizzly London weather.
