Maya was in high spirits as she made her way along the red carpet in the low-cut black blazer dress, which offered a glimpse of her toned abs thanks to a cut-out at the front.

How did BRIT Awards go ahead during the Covid pandemic?
The 2021 BRIT Awards marked the first live music event in the UK since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The indoor ceremony and live show formed part of the Government’s scientific Events Research Programme.
Enhanced testing approaches will examine how events can take place without the need for social distancing after all restrictions are lifted on June 21.
4,000 tickets were made available for the live ceremony, just one fifth of the venue’s 20,000 capacity, with 2,500 of those being given to key workers.
The BRITs will play an important role in paving the way for the return of live music at scale as the UK emerges from the past year’s restrictions.
Audience members were not socially distanced or required to wear face coverings once seated inside the arena, though they were required in communal areas such as the toilet or main concourse.
All attendees were allowed to purchase alcohol and concessions once inside the O2 Arena.
Attendees were also required to follow existing Government guidance when travelling to the venue and adhere to rules set out by the event organisers.
Among the rules, attendees had to provide proof of a negative lateral flow test result to enter the venue, and said test had to be taken at an asymptomatic testing site within 36 hours of the ceremony.
Upon arrival at the venue, all attendess were asked to take a PCR test, and will then take another test five days after the ceremony
It’s hoped this will gather further evidence on the safety of indoor settings, reduced social distancing and the removal of non-pharmaceutical interventions like face coverings.
At Tuesday lunchtime, admitting she’s had no sleep, the beauty was seen refreshing her visage in the back of a cab, with a 111Skin Celestial Black Diamond facemask on to refresh her skin.
‘No sleep – no problem!’ she declared, before being dropped off at swanky jewelers Bulgari to collect her diamonds for the evening.
She made a brief stop off at a petrol station en route – doubling her beauty mask up with a Covid surgical mask – before heading across London the venue.
