Miley Cyrus is all grown up at the Kids' Choice Awards in glamorous flowing gown

All grown up: Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus, 18, shrugged off her recent troubles and appeared radiant and composed in a grown up dress

From the pictures of her smoking a bong, to the very public row with her famous father, Miley Cyrs has had a difficult year.

But the 18-year-old put that behind her as she arrived for the Kid's Choice Awards in a glamorous flowing floral dress tonight, The gown, complete with train, highlighted Miley's slender figure. The Hannah Montana star has been criticised for her occasionally revealing clothing in recent months, but looked glamorous on the orange carpet.

Things have picked up for the former Disney star since her highly-publicised troubles, she was recently seen smiling after her parents Trish and Billy Ray reunited.

Meanwhile Heidi Klum went for the simple and understate look in a black mini dress, embellished only with white embroidery around the neck.

The 37-year-old presenter of Seriously Funny Kids matched her tailored shift with a pair of black high heels, wearing her hair in a simple slicked back bun.

Perhaps her low-key look was simply down to time constraints.

Earlier in the day the mother-of-four had dressed down in a striped shirt as she took her daughters Leni, six, and Lou, one, to ballet class with husband Seal.

Choosing white were reality star Kim Kardashian and Disney Star Selena Gomez, 18, whose boyfriend Justin Bieber was absent - away performing in Europe.

Sisters Paris and Nicki Hilton wore pink and white mini dresses, posing together as they stood on the red carpet under the late afternoon LA sun. Paris held one leg up in the style of a flamingo, while her sister posed more traditionally.

Also on the red carpet was the Black Eyed Peas, with Fergie making it clear she was ready to embrace whatever the evening threw at her.

The glamorous frontwoman said she's become strangely curious - and a little afraid - of what the infamous slime will feel, smell and taste like at the 24th annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award.

She'll be donning a custom-made outfit for a kid-friendly medley with her fellow Peas, marking the group's first time at the slimy ceremony.

'We've always been on tour every year,' said Fergie. 'My mom would call me and say, "You know you're nominated for Kids' Choice Awards."

'I would watch the show on the Internet, and it would make me sad that we couldn't be there. This is a special moment for us to be able to come to this particular award show and rock it.'

Fergie and the Peas are also up for one of the fan-favourite ceremony's blimp-shaped trophies in the favourite music group category against musical siblings the Jonas Brothers, country crooners Lady Antebellum and boy band Big Time Rush, who are also slated to perform at the University of Southern California's Galen Center, along with Willow Smith and Train.

'There's still a giant sense of surprise. No one rehearses being slimed. You can't really imagine the feeling of that coldness dripping through your clothes and into every pore of your body.'
