We imagine that when you're collecting an award for being a trendsetter there's even more pressure than usual to look stunning so it's a good job Nicole knows what she's doing!

She arrived at the event wearing a bold-shouldered black dress with plunging neckline and thigh split. Given it's an Accessories Council bash we were keen to see how she dressed up the look - as this picture shows, she went minimal. A black clutch, simple earrings, a ring and her wedding band.
