Nicole Scherzinger learned a very important style lesson Wednesday night: leave the dramatic slit dresses to Angelina Jolie's right leg.

Attending the U.K. premiere of Men in Black 3, Scherzinger wore a strapless, black Cengiz Abazoglu Haute Couture gown boasting a risque, thigh-high slit–and had to be careful to cover up when a gust of wind nearly caused an humiliating wardrobe malfunction. (Though she was mocked for her over-the-top red carpet pose, Jolie stunned in a velvet Atelier Versace gown with a similarly high slit at the Academy Awards in February).

The former X-Factor judge–who appears in Men in Black's third installment alongside Will Smith, Josh Brolin, and Tommy Lee Jones–was accompanied by her on-again beau Lewis Hamilton.

Scherzinger, 33, and her Formula One star beau split ways at the end of 2011; soon after, the Pussycat Dolls frontwoman confessed to The Mirror that she still had feelings for her ex.

"I still love him," she revealed. "It's all very recent and it's hard for me to talk about."

Just before Valentine's Day, however, the pair reunited and have been going strong ever since.

Speaking to Hello! magazine, the singer explained she feels good about where she is with Hamilton, 27, whom she first met in 2007.

"I believe in [love] more with each year–every girl does," she said. "We all strive to find a soulmate. Have I found mine yet? Keep watching!"
