Cheryl who? X Factor USA judge Nicole Scherzinger was all smiles as she left a radio station in Paris earlier today
She is certainly making headlines around the globe after landing the coveted X Factor judging role replacing Cheryl Cole.
So it seems fitting that Nicole Scherzinger would want to wear a statement style of the moment and so she stepped out in an on-trend 70’s ensemble earlier today.
The former Pussycat Dolly donned a wide-brimmed black hat, a mesh strapless top and a pair of high-waisted flared jeans over platform shoes at a radio station in Paris earlier today.
And the retro look certainly hit the mark with the ensemble emphasising her slim waist and enviable curves.
Nicole has been enjoying her time in Paris this week after spending the weekend supporting boyfriend Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton in the Monaco Grand Prix.
She tweeted: ‘My french fans R so wonderful! ThankU 4 all the luv & support, it means so much 2 me! Ur love is killer! Xoxo’
Statement style: The singer evoked her inner 70s chick in a pair of high-waisted flared jeans a body-con strapless top and a wide brimmed hat
Nicole even got up close and personal with her fans outside her hotel in the French capital yesterday as she greeted a crowd of her young supporters with warm embraces.
But her loyal fans aren’t the only reason for the wide smile on Nicole’s face – her promotion from co-host to judge on the X Factor USA has no doubt left her ecstatic, not least because of the boost it will give to her growing solo career.
Hold on to your hat: Nicole couldn't wipe the smile from her face which will no doubt be down to her role as X Factor judge as much as the warm welcome she has received from her French fans
Meanwhile Cheryl, who has not returned to the UK version of the X Factor, has not been seen since returning to the UK after being sacked from the talent how.
Black Eyed Peas singer Will.i.am, who manages Cheryl Stateside, insisted the 27-year-old is not letting the situation get her down and is already making plans for the future.
