Nicole Scherzinger Wows In Flares At Cosmopolitan Women Of The Year Awards

What, no flesh-flashing cutout dress? Nicole Scherzinger was elegant and cool at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards at Victoria & Albert Museum on Thursday night in a navy wide-leg trousers and matching strapless corset top.

The top featured a waist-cinching belt with a gold zip up the front, which was enhanced by her signature gold bracelets and rings.

The X Factor judge, who won the Ultimate TV Personality award, opted for a funky updo, and finished the look with a pop of pink lipstick.

While on stage, Nicole performed a tribute to Nelson Mandela by singing This Little Light Of Mine.

Other stars at the bash, which was hosted by Fearne Cotton, included Ellie Goulding, Little Mix and Sarah Harding.

What do you think of Nic's toned-down look?
