Looking good. Below: how she looked before

Her natural beauty combined with her glorious voice once made her one of the most successful singers of her generation.

And posing for photographers in a striking floor-length black gown with diamonds dripping from her ears, she once again looks every inch the global superstar.

The image is a far cry from many of the recent pictures of Whitney Houston, looking tired and ravaged by drug and alcohol use.

But at the 17th Carousel of Hope Ball on Saturday, Whitney defiantly turned on the glamour in a bid to forget her estranged husband Bobby Brown.

She blew kisses for photographers in the figure-hugging dress at the benefit event for the Barbara Davis Centre For Childhood diabetes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

Her skin looked luminous and hair perfectly styled as she stepped out at the charity ball.

The event was one of Whitney's first public appearances since she filed divorce papers on her husband of 14 years.

The 43-year-old singer, who has sold more than 100 million albums, marked an end to the tumultuous marriage when she filed divorce papers earlier this month, seeking custody of the couple's 13-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina.

Whitney has entered rehab twice during the marriage, on one occasion her family claimed she was 'incapable of looking after herself'.

Well she doesn't have to hide the bruises anymore, so that's a start. Also anybody would look great without that horrible accessory draped all over her like she had before.

Not being Bobby Brown's wife makes Whitney Houston feel 'great'

Splitting up with hubby Bobby Brown seems to have done singer-actress Whitney Houston a world of good. On Saturday, the 43-year-old singer made her first public appearance after her separation at the 17th Carousel of Hope Ball in Beverly Hills. And her stunning appearance was a far cry from the stoned look Houston had made a permanent fixture of her life lately.

Looking healthier and happier she has in a long time, Houston turned up at the charity event for juvenile diabetics sporting blond hair, a black Armani gown and diamond chandelier earrings. She admitted that she was feeling much better after her stint with rehab for drug abuse and alcoholism.

“I feel great,” the singer said. Escorting her at the event, which raised US$70 million, was producer Clive Davis, who is helping Houston with her new album.

“She's been through emotional trauma, and everybody's rooting for her. Support poured in from other quarters as well. Denzel Washington, who co-starred with her in The Preacher's Wife said he was 'praying' for her return to the Hollywood and music scene. “I've talked with Whitney a few times since I was in New Orleans. She's made a decision to turn her life around and I'm just praying for her. She's been clean and clear for months now. She's on the right path and I just pray she continues on that path,” Washington said.

If guests at the event are to be believed, Houston is determined to continue on that path. “Whitney looked really great. No one could take their eyes off her. It was impossible to imagine this was the same woman photographed at such a low ebb earlier this year,” one of the guests said. Also present at the event were Halle Berry, who suffers from diabetes, and boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, Hilary Duff, Teri Hatcher, Brooke Shields, Sharon Stone, and Warren Beatty and wife Annette Bening.We're going to make a killer album,” he was quoted as saying.
