Lewis helps Nicole skirt the steps

Nicole Scherzinger was helped out of an embarrassing red carpet stumble by boyfriend Lewis Hamilton at the Men In Black 3 premiere.

The former Pussycat Doll - who plays bad girl Lilly Poison in the new film - wore a striking floor-length black dress which had daring sheer panels, twisted detail on the corset, and a slit to the thigh to rival Angelina Jolie's famous right leg flash at the Oscars earlier this year.

But as the Nicole made her entrance down the steps in Leicester Square a gust of wind caught her skirt, and Lewis steadied her as the 33-year-old singer quickly held her dress in place to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions in front of the crowds.

Nicole admitted she and Formula One star Lewis still weren't completely comfortable posing for the cameras.

She said: "We find it quite nerve-racking. I think I'd rather be on stage with a mic in my hand and he'd rather be in a car racing, to be honest with you."

The former US X Factor judge and Lewis, 27, met in 2007 and went public with their relationship sixth months later.

They have split several times, most recently in October 2011, when they said their work was keeping them apart.

But they managed to rekindle their romance at the beginning of this year.
