Joining together to celebrate the finest ladies of 2013, Ellie Goulding and Nicole Scherzinger attended the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards at Victoria & Albert Museum in London on Thursday (December 5).

The "I Need Your Love" singer showed off her tiny waist in a strapless white dress with a black skirt as the "X Factor" UK judge sizzled in a black bustier and matching pants for pics on the red carpet.

This year, the UK publication named Nicole Ultimate TV Personality and upon accepting, she shared, "I'm humbled to receive this award, mostly because I've been so inspired listening to the stories from the courageous and shamazing, bad-ass, righteous women tonight."

Meanwhile, Ellie nabbed Ultimate Music Star, telling the audience, "I never thought I'd win a Cosmo award, I'm a bit nervous, I hate public speaking, but thankyou very much to everyone at Cosmo for believing in me and putting me on the cover, it's one of my first ones ever, so thank you."
