Lucky Day: Nicola Roberts films her second solo music video in New York City and flashes her knickers
In her first solo music video, Beat Of My Drum, she wore patterned pants and now Nicola Roberts is flashing some new knickers.
The 25-year-old singer was shooting a video in New York yesterday for her new upcoming single and showed off a pair of leopard print smalls.
The Girls Aloud star teamed up the pants with a barely-there floral dress and some Nike high tops.
Despite looking like she’d forgotten her trousers, Nicola appeared to be starting a new fashion trend in the Big Apple.

Her second single Lucky Day follows the release of Beat Of My Drum last month from her debut solo album yet to be released.
The album, titled Cinderella’s Eyes will be released on September 26 this year to follow on from two single releases.
But although she received raving reviews from music critics for Beat Of My Drum, Nicola failed to top the charts with it.

The upbeat pop song was written by Nicola, with the help of Maya von Doll, Wesley ‘Diplo’ Pentz and Dimitri Tikovoi.
Nicola was filming the video yesterday at St Marks Place in the East Village of New York City and when she wasn’t dancing around, she posed behind some newspaper stands.
And she tweeted after filming: ‘Today was my ‘Lucky Day’… Had the best time shooting my 2nd video. I met some lovely people. I love NY… All feels very surreal right now. X’

But after a fleeting trip Stateside, Nicola was back in London today for the film premiere of Horrid Henry at London’s Southbank today.
Roberts tweeted this morning: ‘Just landed in London after THE scariest bumpiest flight ever! Didn’t sleep a wink! HATE flying x’
She walked the red carpet to lend her support to Girls Aloud bandmate Kimberley Walsh, who has a role in the children’s film.
Sarah Harding also arrived for the event, but their other bandmate Cheryl Cole was nowhere to be seen – nor was Nadine Coyle.
