Leona Lewis showed her fashion colours in a yellow coat last night to celebrate the big switch on
Leona Lewis lit up Oxford Street last night in a canary yellow coat as she performed a special set to mark the Christmas lights being switched on. Robbie Williams was the man responsible for flicking the festive switch but he also followed this with a musical offering of his own.
Clad in khaki trousers teamed with a sheer sequined top, Leona fought off the chill in a bright coat from Milly. She added a playful element with her hair in a side ponytail and a deep red shade on her nails.
Her set was complemented by Robbie Williams who still possessed the same energy and enthusiasm he did in the earlier Take That days as he took control of the elevated but small stage.
As well as musical treats from both Robbie and Leona and a welcome from Spice Girl and Heart radio presenter Emma Bunton, the crowds witnessed boy band Lawson perform, who helped drum up excitement before the 300,000 bulbs were illuminated.
Oxford Street’s Christmas lights feature large gifts and umbrellas ‘floating’ above the road, and this year, thanks to the sponsor Marmite, there is a 'love it or hate it' theme with classic Christmas characters also featuring on the mile-long display.
