Simon Cowell took his adopted family out last night, playing the cool uncle as he celebrated with X Factor stars Leona Lewis and One Direction.

The music mogul and his protégés headed to the Savoy Hotel for a fundraising event in honour of The Katie Piper Foundation, of which the Syco boss is a patron.

The Bleeding Love singer looked incredibly elegant in a sleek white cocktail dress and adding a splash of colour to the classic look with blood red shoes and lipstick to match.

The reality TV judge also scrubbed up well, looking rather suave in his suit - although of course there was the obligatory flash of chest hair.

Despite opting for no tie and an open buttoned shirt, it was still far more dapper than his usual jeans and T-shirt attire.

But whether bleached teeth and square hair do it for you or not, One Direction won hands down when it came to catching the female eye.

The quintet looked ecstatic with their new found fame, grinning away in their formal attire.

Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan clutched their goodie bags as they smiled for pictures and proved why they are earning their reputation as heartbreakers.

Myleene Klass also looked radiant, opting for a similar colour co-ordination to the Bleeding Love singer.

The mother-of-two, who only gave birth to her second daughter Hero in March, wore a chic white dress and red lipstick, teaming it with black heels and a studded clutch bag.

The former Hear'Say singer oozed with sophistication and flashed a daring glimpse of cleavage through a slit in the front of a gown but still looked classy.

While Myleene isn't quite part of the X Factor elite and a member of Simon's gang, she has walked a similar path after catapulting to success from winning ITV show Popstars in 2001.

Entrepreneur Michelle Mone put in an appearance, looking ravishing in a prom queen dress and long flowing blonde locks.

The Glaswegian businesswoman is the founder of lingerie company Ultimo, which might go a little way to explaining why she had such a seductive bustline on display.

Presumably inside the venue there were drinks flowing aplenty, as Cowell, 51, seemed to forget what car was his at the end of the night.

As he left the Savoy he accidentally jumped into the wrong vehicle before realising his mistake.

Luckily he took the error in jest and made a silly face for the waiting photographers.

The event was held in honour of Katie Piper, a former model and TV presenter who was raped by an ex-boyfriend and scarred for life after he hired someone to throw acid in her face.
