Nicole wows in a Michael Costello fishtail frock

Nicole Scherzinger earned her fashion stripes once again tonight as she hit the X Factor stage in a stunning black couture gown by Michael Costello.

Every Saturday Scherzy gives us a sneak peek of her outfit from backstage before anyone else. And we've fallen head over heels for tonight's dramatic ensemble.

The stunning judge chose a striking strapless fishtail frock with gorgeous origami detail as her Saturday night showstopper.

Teaming her gown with Gianmarco Lorenzi heels, fierce statement rings by Frost of London and Kirstie Maclaren and geometric spike earrings from GemAlly, Nicole showed that maximum glamour often means minimal fuss with her simple yet oh-so-chic look.

The judge completed her outfit with a slicked back high-impact top-knot, layered kohl liner and a girly bright pink lip. What a knockout.

What's been your favourite of Nicole's X Factor looks so far?
