Despite the heavy rain, Nicole popped on a pair of sunglasses before posing on the red carpet at the latest round of X Factor auditions, held at Old Trafford football ground.
Nicole didn't even seem to noticed her faux pas and instead stood there oblivious to the weather while a member of staff held a giant umbrella over her.
The former Pussycat Doll did, however, look smoking hot in purple bodycon dress with cutout detail around the bust.
She wore her hair in a sleek high ponytail and completed her outfit with a pair of black court shoes and a pink manicure.
Commenting on her outfit, Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack tweeted: "Nicole looks so beautiful today it's confusing my sexuality...."
It seems you're not the only one confused, Caroline. Although Nicole seems more in a muddle over the weather.
