Pop star Nicole Scherzinger suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at Britain's National Television Awards on Wednesday (23Jan13) when camera flashes turned her dress transparent.

The former Pussycat Dolls singer's breasts were clearly visible under her plunging black gown during a flurry of bright flashes as she posed on the red carpet in London.

Fortunately, Scherzinger's modesty was preserved by strategically placed nipple covers, and she didn't appear to notice the fashion faux pas as she smiled for the cameras.
