Steps stars Faye Tozer and Claire Richards were among the star-studded arrivals at the LGBT Awards at The Brewery in London on Friday night.

The two singers opted to match their looks by donning bold white outfits, with Faye adding a playful twist by sporting a fun feathered blazer for the annual awards show.

Also in attendance was Olympic diving champion Tom Daley, who appeared to be enjoying his year-long break from the sport as he arrived in an eye-catching mesh vest.

Faye cut a stylish figure in a chic white blazer with a matching feathered boa and sophisticated trousers, adding some height to her look with nude thin-strapped heels. 

The singer swept her blonde tresses into a sleek ponytail and completed her look with gold hoop earrings and a black clutch bag.

Meanwhile Claire opted for a glamorous white bouclé two piece that consisted of an oversized blazer and matching palazzo trousers, teamed with a black bustier.
