There's not many ways you can go wrong in black lace, but style-free Nicole Scherzinger someone managed to commit a fashion faux pas in an LBD – every woman's sacred wardrobe staple.
The 34-year-old X Factor judge is renowned for having naff taste in fashion, what with her tacky futuristic pleather trousers and over the top studded jackets, and now the former Pussycat Doll has made a black dress cry.
Nicole was spotted leaving a private party held at Annabels in London as she tried to attempt a classy look in a lace sheer black dress.
And all would have been well if she hadn't have worn a nighty-like dress underneath to protect her modesty instead of a long one, which resulted in the garment looking rather odd and cheap.

Although the evening number, featuring three quarter length sleeves, accentuated her slender figure – which is always a plus – the look somehow didn't work as she finished off the outfit with a pair of classic open toe black heels.
Perhaps it was Nicole's tightly scraped back hair that put us off this one – we can't quite put our finger on it. The prematurely cut underskirt doesn't quite help the starlet out in the style stakes, however. Run out of fabric, did you Nics?
The star has been tweeting her support for her 'wild card' on the X Factor, Adam Burridge, who she didn't let in to her final three boys.
She wrote: ''Hey everyone. Pleas keep voting for my boy @Adam_Burridge to get into the live shows #VoteAdam #Wilcard' '#VoteAdam. (sic)"
Nicole has some fun with the neon trend...
