Nicole Scherzinger: Lady GaGa even wears fishnets and corsets to the airport

Although you may think that the Pussycat Dolls are as primped and preened as a pop star can get, lead singer Nicole Scherzinger has revealed that there is one star who beats them all hands down.

Eccentric Poker Face singer Lady GaGa is currently the support act for the Pussycat Dolls’ Europe and Oceania tour and Nicole said her wacky costumes are no onstage gimmick.

"The most amazing thing is she was like that before all the fame. We’ll be at the airport and she’ll have full fishnets and the brassiere on even then," said the incredulous Doll to Showbiz Spy.

Meanwhile, Nicole revealed that the burlesque-inspired stars prefer the dressed-down look when they are not performing and that they counter Lady GaGa’s fishnets with old jogging bottoms.

Lady GaGa changed costumes six times during a recent concert in New York, but each outfit included her favourite fishnet tights, which she has also been known to wear out shopping with just a leotard.

With the summer months approaching, perhaps you’re looking forward to a season of barbecues and garden parties in the sunshine.

However, this may require wearing floaty dresses and perhaps even shorts, which unfortunately means there’s no hiding your lumps and bumps under chunky layers like we’ve been doing for the past six months. Drat.

You can usually rely on Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to don something brightly coloured in the hosiery department when she performs – and this weekend was no exception.

Penelope Cruz-es into new movie role in hold ups

New pictures have been released of Penelope Cruz looking very risque in a burlesque outfit complete with hold ups.

Appearing to have taken inspiration from Dita Von Teese, the Spanish senorita was pictured in the Sun wearing a corset and the opaque hold up stockings as she reclined on a stage and put her leg up by her ear.

The pose was part of a scene from new movie Nine, which also stars Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman and Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas.

However, the limbering and stretches didn’t come easy for Penelope – she revealed that she had to take dance classes for months in order to win the role and was left battered and bruised by the tough routines.

"You just have to keep going and forget about any physical pain," she said bravely.

I think we’ll stick to Pilates, thanks!

If you need hold ups, has some with lacy tops – just like Penelope’s – in both nude and black.
