Pride of Britain Awards: Nicole Scherzinger proves she has The X Factor over Tulisa on red carpet

They go head-to-head in the style stakes every week on The X Factor.

Nicole Scherzinger stole the fashion crown at last night's Pride of Britain Awards 2012, beating rival Tulisa with her stunning red-carpet choice.

Pride of Britain Awards 2012: Nicole Scherzinger stole the show in her sizzling black gownThe former Pussycat Doll wowed the crowds as she arrived at London's Grosvenor House for the event, stepping out in a daring, floor-sweeping black gown with a cut-out bodice.

Following the current trend for daring thigh-high split gowns, Nicole showed off her enviable figure to perfection in the dress - which consisted of a lacy, cut-out bodice down to her waist and a flowing skirt.

Teaming her look with black and gold strapped stilettos, the X Factor judge wore her locks pulled back in a chic ponytail and accessorised with a simple pair of gold hooped earrings.

The Young singer arrived arm-in-arm with fellow judge Louis Walsh for the event, braving the elements alongside the star-studded guest-list - which included a mix of British TV and sporting talent.

Also making the Best Dressed List on the night was another reality TV favourite, Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden.

Myleene Klass followed closely behind in a shimmering gold and cream fishtail gown, which highlighted her lithe figure.

The Strictly host turned heads in her frock, which was more weather-appropriate thanks to the long, sequin-encrusted sleeves and keyhole cut-out at the bust.
