In good company: Reality shows collide as Lord Rob from Dirty Sexy Things accompanied Funda Onal to the premiere while Ben Ofoedu was dressed in a bizarre ensemble at the screening

She has slimmed down from a size 24 to a 14 after having a gastric band fitted.

And last night Vanessa Feltz showed off the results of the operation as she slipped into a little white dress for the London premiere of The Devil's Double.

The 49-year-old presenter displayed her noticeably slimmed down figure, as well as a deep golden tan, as she and fiancé Ofoedu arrived for the event in Leicester Square.

Vanessa underwent the £4,000 operation in Belgium last June after a surgeon relative recommended it.

However, the mother-of-two admitted in December the results of having the operation had been slower than she had hoped.

She said: 'I think I had this fantasy that the weight would drop off magically, but actually it was slower than I expected. It's going in the right direction though.'

On-trend: Rosamund Pike also wore white, which was featured heavily on the S/S 2011 catwalk shows

Vanessa wasn't the only one to opt for a white dress at last night's premiere.

Actress Rosamund Pike led the charge in a sparkling number cut just above the knee with tiny slashes on both legs, hemmed in with a smart slimline belt.

The 32-year-old finished off her outfit with a pair of black peep toe pumps and a miniature purse adorned with a zebra print patches.

Meanwhile Made In Chelsea star Funda Onal stayed on-trend with a loose, low cut summer dress, nude peep toe heels and a salmon pink handbag.

She was accompanied by Lord Rob - a fellow reality star who appears in Channel 4's Dirty Sexy Things, which follows the fortunes of a group of models.

Rob also got in on the act with a white long sleeve T-shirt, though he opted for dark coloured jeans.

The twosome later tweeted about their night, both excited at having met Latif Yahia, who the film is based on.

Rob wrote: 'Had great night at the devils double film premier with @FundaOnal, amazing amazing film, really outstanding.'

While Funda posted a photo with the caption: 'Met the original 'devils double' @latifyahia tonight what an inspiration! We could all learn a lot.'

Linzi Stoppard bucked the trend, choosing bright red for her showstopping number at the after party for the screening held at China White.

The violin-playing daughter of Tom Stoppard completed her eye-catching outfit with a pair of gold strappy wedge heels and a matching handbag.

TOWIE stars Kirk Norcross and Lucy Mecklenburgh also made appearances, alongside Rick Parfitt Jr and girl group Belle Amie - whose outfits were more suited to a festival than a red carpet premiere.

Also present was lead star Dominic Cooper - who also went for a slightly unorthodox ensemble comprised of a dark coloured blazer, white shirt, turquoise tie, light blue trousers and grey shoes.

The film is based on the true story of Latif Yahia's life as the double of Saddam Hussein's notorious and sadistic son Uday in Iraq.

Cooper said: 'Getting into the mind set was very hard because I despised Uday and I could find no redeeming quality, so it was about understanding what made that man the way he was.

'Because there are truly no redeeming qualities, no moral code - so you really have no idea how someone functions like that.

'I looked at things like his relationship with his father and the fact that Saddam never thought him capable of any military stance, and certainly wasn't going to offer him the role of taking over power.

'So you understand the aggression and the hatred and the bile. That gave me at least a key to understanding the psyche.

'Not that it excused it but at least it gave me an understanding of who that man was.'

Yahia's family's lives were threatened unless he agreed to live with Uday in Saddam's palace and appear in public for him if his life was thought to be at risk.
