This week every A-lister worth their mettle gathered for businessman, Ben Caring's birthday party at Annabel's in London. But in amongst all the floor-sweeping dresses and embellished two-pieces it was Team LBD favourite, Nicole Scherzinger (read our exclusive interview with her!) who really stole the show with her black lace dress. The lace midi dress was the perfect mix of demure and sexy featuring long sleeves, a black slip and high neckline as well as a flash of flesh through the sheer and lace panels. Teamed with her slicked back hair, over-sized diamond earrings and classic black peep-toe shoes Nicole made sure all eyes were on her. Make like Nicole and add a simple black clutch bag to your look and dance around it all night - we have it on good authority that's exactly what the X Factor judge did!
