She said to Glamour: ‘I’m usually low-key, but when LV dressed me, I felt somehow mischievous and fabulous at the same time. ‘But also, when I wore those gorgeous dresses and heels, I was reminded that, as an actress, the style choices I make influence how directors think of me. Theres power in fashion.’ Simple add ons: The 27-year-old accessorised her look with a pair of cross-hatched sandals, a big black designer bag and a pair of round framed sunglasses The star confessed she was not always into fashion – no doubt that has changed since landing the role of cheerleader Quinn Fabray on her hit show.

She tried several times to get the audience to be quiet: she hit a metal ball, swore several times both quietly and loudly, and told them they were rude. Eventually, Apple said, Predictable! Predictable fashion, what the fk? and walked out of the venue. Those were not the only Apple antics last night: The singer also stood on her piano, performed a back-bend on the bench, and hit herself in the head with her microphone.
