Don't cha wish your wardrobe was hot like Nicole Scherzinger's?
After bursting onto the UK scene in 2005 with the American girl band Pussycat Dolls, Nicole has since enjoyed success as a solo artist and famously coupled up with Formula 1's Lewis Hamilton.
Now she's stepped into Kelly Rowland's shoes as the new X Factor judge, alongside Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos. And while it might be the contestants' singing talents being rated and slated, Nicole's style choices will be under the spotlight, too, so the pressure to get it right is greater than ever.
Unsurprisingly, she's already bringing a touch of Hollywood glamour to the panel, and viewers have been promised designer gowns, big hair and plenty of bling once the live shows begin.
The A-lister, who is also the face (and fingers) of imPRESS nails at LittleBlackDress.co.uk, shares her best wardrobe tips here.
Q: How would you describe your style?
I can be quite daring with my clothes but believe that you have to feel comfortable and confident to carry off whatever it is you're wearing.
Q: What do you think is the key to a perfect dress?
I love a dress that's fitted, classy, sexy and feminine.
Q: Who are your favourite fashion designers?
I love Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli and Versace - brands that look very strong and sexy. For high street, I visited All Saints during my time in London and they had a fabulous selection of dresses and accessories.
Q: What is your favourite red carpet look you have worn so far?
I've loved all the dresses that I've worn on the red carpet but one of my favourites has to be the black dress that I wore at the premiere for Men In Black 3. It was by Turkish designer Cengiz Abazoglu and I loved how elegant yet flattering it was.
Q: You often wear little black dresses. Are you a big fan of the LBD?
LBDs are so versatile, which is why I think they've become one of my wardrobe staples. A little black dress can do so many things, I guess it depends what you accessorise it with. You can wear an LBD with boots and leather jacket for a gig, or accessorise with a clutch bag and killer heels for a night out.
Q: Who is your favourite fashion icon and why?
I've always admired Marilyn Monroe. I think she looked fabulous whatever she wore as she knew her assets and how to best show them off. I also love Victoria Beckham's style and think her dresses are amazing. I'm very inspired by my music and other artists in the industry such as Beyonce and J.Lo. Those ladies have fabulous bodies and definitely know their way around a dress.
Q: Have you got any outfits lined up in your wardrobe for your time on the X Factor live shows?
I've been so busy recently that I haven't really had a chance to think about my X Factor wardrobe but that said, I'm sure there will be an LBD or two.
Q: What about your beauty routine on the show?
So many people put time and energy into getting their hair, make-up and outfit just right and I see great nails as that finishing touch. I've become the face of imPRESS stick-on nails and love them. I'm a very expressive person and am known to talk with my hands so they're the perfect product for me. I can switch them up with each outfit so keep your eyes peeled to see which ones I'll be rocking.
