It was Gary Barlow's big night as he was honoured with a gala dinner.
So his wife Dawn of course played the proud partner on Monday night as she turned out to support the much-loved musician on his big evening.
It is the first time Dawn, 42, has been seen since the couple revealed the tragic news that their daughter Poppy was stillborn.
The Take That singer was heralded for his musical achievements and charity work at the Music Industry Trust Awards Dinner.
And Dawn was there by his side as she watched him be applauded for his achievements.
She was seen arriving at the bash at Grosvenor House Hotel dressed to impress in a black lace frock with gold beads adorning her neck.
Dawn finished off her look with her blonde locks tied into a pristine up 'do while she carried a matching gold clutch bag.
She mingled with the likes of his X Factor co-judges Nicole Scherzinger and Tulisa Contostavlos, while during the night she would have sat in her seat watching Barlow on stage with his Take That pal Robbie Williams.
It's the first public outing she's made with Barlow since the tragic news that their baby daughter Poppy had been stillborn in September.
The couple announced at the time: 'Dawn and I are devastated to announce that we’ve lost our baby.'
Gary became the 21st recipient of the prestigious Music Industry Trusts Award at the star-studded bash and admitted it means a lot to him.
He said: 'I've been doing this for 22 years now, and the one thing that's more apparent to me than ever before is how much I love performing. To be able to do it, I feel really lucky, I never want to turn my back on it.
'It's so special when you get something like this, because it's recognised within the industry. I'm a lover of this industry, I'd do anything to protect it, and when you're given something from that industry, I'm honoured.'
The 41-year-old singer was joined at the charity gala - in aid of Nordoff Robbins and The BRIT Performing Arts & Technology School - by a string of his celebrity pals including his proud Take That bandmates Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald, who also performed at the event.
Other guests included Sir Elton John, who presented Gary with his award, and his fellow 'X Factor' judges Nicole Scherzinger, Tulisa and Louis Walsh.
Robbie Williams, Dermot O'Leary, Mark Ronson, Taio Cruz, Kimberley Walsh and Alesha Dixon were also there to support the event, which has raised over £4 million for the two charities.
Previous recipients include George Martin, Michael Parkinson, Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue and Jools Holland.
