Showcasing her signature style, New Rules star Dua highlighted her toned figure in a black dress, complete with a classic bralet and see-through panels.

The pop princess dressed up her look with gold chained jewellery, while her tresses were swept away from her face and into a tight bun.

Joining the string of ceremonies that have had to skip a glitzy bash this year and go virtual, thanks to COVID-19, the awards were hosted by comedian Tom Allen.

Several guests linked in from Australia and the USA, with 14 award winners as well as representatives of the NHS LGBTQ community and the entire cast and director of Ryan Murphy’s Boys in the Band movie.

Presenters included Mark Ronson, RuPaul, Simon Callow CBE, MNEK, Todrick Hall, Layton Williams, Max Harwood, Dr Ranj Singh and Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful OBE. 

Entertainment on the night also featured live and exclusive performances from the Vamps (Married in Vegas from the number one album Cherry Blossom) and Paloma Faith (Better Than This from her incredible new album Infinite Things).

The awards are to benefit the Attitude Magazine Foundation for LGBTQ causes, which has raised and distributed more than £250,000 since summer 2018. 

Darren Styles OBE, Publisher of Attitude magazine, said: ‘This has been the most extraordinary running of the Attitude Awards, where the more usual 650 guests in black tie at the Roundhouse have been replaced with a world audience in the digital, virtual space.

’14 amazing presenters, 14 great winners and 5 roof-raising live performances have resulted in a blockbuster show that – we hope – has uplifted the watching LGBTQ community.

‘May our award winners inspire anyone, anywhere, of any age to embrace who they truly are, free to be the best that they can be.’
