Tulisa has certainly come a long way from her days of singing with N-Dubz as she has just been named the FHM’s sexiest woman in the world by readers of the magazine.

The X Factor judge came top of the 100 names listed by readers of the magazine, beating fellow singer Cheryl Cole into second place.

She also managed to beat off competition from some of the world’s current top models, including Bar Refaeli and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who was named in first place in 2011.

To celebrate her FHM’s sexiest woman win, Tulisa attended the official awards party with her boyfriend Jack O’Connell.

Wearing a stylish black dress covered in stud embellishments, she kept accessorising to a minimum, adding just a pair of stud gold earrings.

With her dark hair in a chic bun, she kept her look classy and elegant as she picked up her honour.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said the award was a “confidence boost” and “the most self-indulgent award I’ve ever won”.
