KATIE Piper dazzled on the red carpet last night — just three years after her devastating acid attack. The 27-year-old looked ravishing in a plum one-shoulder dress at the TV Choice Awards.
In 2008 her ex-boyfriend arranged for acid to be thrown at the former model, leaving her with third-degree burns and the worst injuries her medical team had ever seen.
Katie lost her eyelids, half of her left ear and most of her nose. Her eyes, mouth, tongue, oesophagus, arms, hands, neck and cleavage were also badly burned.
But last night she looked almost unrecognisable as she appeared at the bash looking stunning and happier than ever.
The numerous operations and procedures she has undergone since appearing on a documentary about the effects of the attack, Katie: My Beautiful Face, have paid off.
Brave Katie now runs her own successful charity to help people living with disfigurement — The Katie Piper Foundation.
Katie said: "I'm so happy with how the foundation is going and last week was so great with Simon (Cowell) coming, and we raised so much money."
But the humble lady doesn't take all the credit for her many achievements.
She added: "It's not just me, I have such a great team around me, and we have so many great members of staff and amazing volunteers who give up their time to support the foundation.
"I'm so lucky to have such a great network of family and friends."
