Alexandra Burkes glam snaps – bikini, minidress and gown held up by luck alone

Alexandra Burke shot to fame in 2008 after winning the X Factor in 2008.

The star initially competed in the second series of the show, reaching the judges houses stage where she was one of Louis Walsh's final seven.

But the boyband exec initially didn't choose her to go through to the live finals as she was too young at the time.

However Louis was eventually left red-faced as she went onto win the ITV reality singing competition in 2008, after being mentored by Cheryl Cole and beating out the likes of JLS to sign a record contract with Simon Cowell's record label Syco, going onto create an illustrious career for herself.

As she turns 34 on August 25, Daily Star has taken a look at some of her best moments

Thigh-split dress

In terms of fashion, Alexandra got to a great start on her X Factor 2008 stint, but no look was as iconic as her finale outfit.

Alexandra struggled to hold back tears as she took to the stage to perform the iconic Dreamgirls track Listen alongside her idol, worldwide superstar Beyoncé who also sang the track in the 2006 movie.

Although it was a huge coup to book Beyoncé on the ITV show, the eyes of the nation were on not just on the former Destiny's Child recording artist as Alexandra more than held her own.

This was helped by her stunning look that night which was inspired by the hit movie musical as she wore a stunning floor length body-con silver gown with a thigh high slit. Her shoulder length black tresses styled into a middle parting emitting perfect curls.

Red carpet glamour

Alexandra wowed onlookers when graced the red carpet at the Pride Of Britain Awards in 2021.

The former Strictly finalist wowed onlookers as she donned a strapless silk dress adorned with metallic gold disc sequins complete with a plunging neckline.

The recording artist beamed as she wore glossy lipstick and thick eyelashes with her hair carefully styled up in tightly knit waves.

Show-stopping gown

Alexandra made her red carpet debut with her West Ham goalkeeper boyfriend Darren Randolp at the Premiere of Dune in October of 2021.

And whilst winter was on its way, Alexandra turned up the heat on the red carpet as she took centre stage.

The former singer truly gave the A-LIst Hollywood stars a run for their money as she wore a silky one shoulder steel coloured velvet dress with matching metallic nails.

All emphasis was on the dress as she accessorised the outfit with simple black heels and a subtle small dark clutch bag.

Frock held up by luck alone

Before Alexandra performed at the Festival of Remembrance Gala in November last year, the singer took to instagram to show off her jaw-dropping outfit.

She donned a black ballgown with heavy crystal embellishments on the torso, then delicately spread out over the skirt to give an elegant and sophisticated look.

Her long hair was straightened and split into a middle parting as she sported subtle naturalistic make-up with only simple eyeshadow to compliment heavy lashes.

Bikini bombshell

Alexandra put on a glam display as she posed in a high-waisted palm print bikini last year.

The Bad Boys hitmaker flaunted her curves in the two-piece, which she accessorised with a short-sleeved oversized hot pink shirt.

Clutching a pair of tortoise-shell sunglasses in her right hand, she wore her light brown tresses in beautiful waves which cascaded down her back.

To accompany the sizzling shots, she penned: "Can you tell I’m a tropics girl? Hope this bikini & kaftan brings the sunshine back.."

Chic minidress

The Start Without You singer made sure she was the centre of attention as she posed wearing a figure-hugging white minidress.

She showed off her famous pins which were often on display during her time on BBC's Strictly Come Dancing.

Alexandra enhanced her natural beauty with some glam makeup and left her hair in loose waves for the sunning photograph.
