Nicole Scherzinger shows off sensationally slender figure in slinky black maxi dress... as she puts on a brave face after act Freddy Parker is eliminated from the X Factor
She sadly lost her first act Freddy Parker on this weekend's X Factor.
But Nicole Scherzinger attempted to put the blow behind her on Sunday night, as she headed for a relaxing dinner after the live results show.
The 38-year-old former Pussycat Doll showed off her sensationally slender figure in a glamorous backless maxi dress as she enjoyed a bite to eat at C restaurant in Mayfair.

Slender: Nicole showed off her sensationally slender figure in the form-fitting maxi dress which hugged and flattered her figure all the way down
The Hawaii-born beauty put on a truly show-stopping display in the form-fitting maxi dress, which flatteringly hugged her figure from head to toe.
The classic frock remained plain at the front, with the black material stretching from its high rounded neck to her ankle, covering up her famously long and lean pins.
However the outfit came into its own at the back, where it featured a large cut-out to flash plenty of her gorgeous, glowing skin.

The dress was held up by thick black straps positioned in a chic diamond shape, before being secured by a satin ribbon at the base - which fell delicately down the back of her womanly frame.
Keeping the look both classic and classy, the Right There crooner teamed the dress with a pair of simple heeled black sandals with a single strap across the toes.
Nicole finished the ensemble with a thick slick of scarlet lipstick and lashings of dark mascara, tying the look together with hints of her trademark glamour.

Staying positive: The singer's upbeat appearance at C Restaurant comes after a difficult night on the show - which saw the elimination of her artist Freddy Parker (above)
Catching the attention of all outside the restaurant, is not difficult to see why Nicole caught the attention of her new man Grigor Dimitrov.
Nicole began dating the 25-year-old tennis ace after a very public split from F1 ace Lewis Hamilton last year, and recently gushed to Glamour magazine that she was in a 'good, solid, more balanced place' in her life.
Despite the relationship going from strength to strength however - with the pair enjoying an idyllic getaway to Italy in June - the beauty admitted recently that she was not yet ready to start a family.
United front: The duo left the studios arm in arm despite the devastating news for the young singer
Fewest votes: Freddy was eliminated after his sing-off with Saara Aalto was put to deadlock by the judges
When asked if she was feeling broody by OK! magazine, she said: 'No because I literally have the biggest family in Hawaii and they're popping out kids every day. For me, all that will come in its own time.'
She continued: 'I feel I have to be smart and take my time with my next project and my music, because it's got to speak and stand the test of time. But I can't wait to get married and have kids, it'll be awesome.'

Supportive: Nicole gave Freddy a huge hug as they parted ways outside the venue, with Freddy saying he 'loved every moment' of his experience on the X Factor
Stunner: Nicole turned already turned heads earlier that evening in the slinky white jumpsuit worn to X Factor live results show
Leaving the studios arm in arm, the contestant and mentor duo giggled together and waved at the awaiting crowds - putting on a united, happy display despite the heartbreaking evening for the young artist.
Freddy was booted off the second week of Live X Factor Shows, following a tense sing-off with Saara Aalto, after receiving the fewest votes on Sunday night's show.
This leaves ten acts remaining on the show, after Four of Diamonds replaced Brooks Way last week.
Controversially Honey G was the fifth act who was confirmed as safe- who threw herself onto the floor shouting in excitement.

'So sad to see Freddy leave tonight': Nicole shared a snap of her and her artist after the show
Second act out: Freddy Parker admitted he was 'devastated but so grateful' for the experience
Saara Aalto- who was in the same position last week but won the sing-off against Bratavio, Freddy Parker and Ryan Lawrie- also one of Nicole's boys - were left as the final three acts on stage, making for a very tense moment for the Pussycat Doll.
However following a nail-biting break- and a chirpy performance by Little Mix who performed new hit Shout Out To My Ex, Ryan was confirmed to have been saved by the Lifeline, leaving Saara and Freddy singing for the judge's vote.
Introducing his belting rendition of Rihanna's Stay, Nicole purred: 'Not only does he has a beautiful voice, but he's an all around beautiful person- I'm proud to introduce Freddy Parker'.
Emotional: First up was Freddy, who belted out Rihana's hit song Stay
Relief: Ryan Lawrie, also in the boys' category, was the last act to be announced as safe - making it a tense moment for Nicole
Controversial: Honey G threw herself on the floor in excitement when she was voted through
While his performance received a standing ovation from Nicole and Sharon Osbourne, Freddy only received two votes from the four judges, sending the result to deadlock.
A tense silence followed as the votes were counted, before Dermot O'Leary announced Freddy had received the least votes and would be going home.
Speaking about the exit from the show, the 18-year-old kennel worker said: 'I'm devastated but so grateful, I've loved every moment'.
Cheery: Gifty Louise and Matt Terry were confirmed as safe early on in the show
