Every week we wonder how Nicole Scherzinger will top her last X Factor outfit. But, every week, she somehow manages it.
For the semi-finals on Saturday night, she wowed in a dramatic black strapless gown with a peplum detail by Michael Costello Couture.
Beyoncé versus Elton John night was always going to be a big-hitter, so the dress had to follow suit. And the crocodile-print frock certainly lived up to it. Nicole finished the look with a huge high bun, fierce spiked earrings from Gem Alley, and a peppering of trendy gold rings.
She pulled a pose as she stepped out on the stage that left her looking like some sort of amazing style sculpture.
