It was a surprise when Rachel Stevens had a night off from mum duties and stepped out for a party.
The former S Club 7 star, who devotes most of her time to her daughter Amelie, looked happy to be having a night out.
Wearing a black jumpsuit, one of her wardrobe staples, the singer looked happy and relaxed, the loose-fitting outfit clinched in at the waist with a black belt.
Knowing what suits her, the 34-year-old kept her jewellery minimal, adding a simple gold cuff to the look.
Adding some edge to the outfit, Rachel painted her nails a dark shade and added some nude skyscraper heels for extra drama.
The star kept her shoulder-length hair loose and casual and decided to go fresh-faced for the party, wearing minimal make-up.
Rachel was clearly looking forward to the Great Boodles Bangle launch party, taking to Twitter ahead of the bash.
The singer is rarely seen out and about since the birth of her young daughter in November 2010 but is still a great charity supporter.
In 2005 Stevens fronted the ‘Everyman Testicular Cancer Awareness’ campaign. Stevens’s role was notable as she was the first woman to represent this campaign. Her television commercial raised eyebrows with its suggestive content that included her telling men to “put one hand down their trousers and give their testicles a good feel”. On the commercial, Stevens commented, “Sometimes men need a little encouragement to think about their health. This is a funny way of raising awareness about a serious subject.”
In 2005 Stevens also took part in the ‘Make Poverty History’ campaign, which aims to eliminate poverty in developing countries by cancelling old debts, improving the way aid is given and removing barriers, so these countries can trade more effectively with the rest of the world. Stevens donated an undisclosed amount of money to the campaign, and also starred in television and magazine advertisements supporting the cause. Her official website also displayed the campaign’s official online banner.
On 15 November 2011 it was reported that Stevens had recorded a collection of songs about fruit and vegetables as a way of helping to encourage children to eat five portions of fruit and veg a day. The songs were for an album titled Tasty Tunes and were made available as free downloads from the website of children’s food firm Ella’s Kitchen. The songs include food-themed versions of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and “The Hokey-Cokey”, and Stevens said of the project, “As a new mum, I’m always looking for exciting ways to encourage my daughter to try new foods, especially greens. I hope tasty tunes help lots of parents sing about fruit and vegetables as part of their little one’s everyday playtime.”
