Bug Eye Alert! Can Nicole Scherzinger Pull Off The Oversized Shades?

The question is, do bug eye shades suit anyone? If the utterly gorgeous Nicole Scherzinger can't pull off oversized sunglasses, what hope do the rest of us have? Our guess is slim to none...

The X Factor judge arrived at the Kiss FM studios in London on Tuesday, sporting some eye-catching and face-obscuring shades.

The former Pussycat doll, who was in town to promote her new single Boomerang, was totally on-trend as far as the rest of her outfit was concerned. Scherzy was putting her best monochrome-clad foot forward in a houndstooth coat (VERY Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2013) and Stella McCartney heels.

Back to THOSE shades. We're really not too hot on the whole sunnies which take up the best part of your face thang, plus is there really any need for shades in a very grey (and snowy) London?

However, this long-standing celebrity trend seems to be gaining rather than losing momentum (blame Victoria Beckham). Nicole's insect-style pair had us thinking Prada a la Beyonce.

What do you make of these face-fillers? Keen for them to hang around or wish the slebs would find a new shape already?

More from Nicole...
