Her wild late night antics raised eyebrows on the Greek island of Mykonos, but back in New York City it was a comparatively sophisticated Nicole Scherzinger who emerged on Wednesday afternoon.
The former Pussycat Doll opted for a stylish cream crop top and matching pencil skirt – both of which helped showcase her famously toned figure as she took a quiet stroll through the city’s bustling downtown Manhattan.
Revealing taut abs and lithe, athletic legs, Nicole, 37, appeared to be upbeat ahead of her appearance on local radio station SiriusXM.
On a warm day in the city Nicole kept her eyes shielded behind a pair of Aviator sunglasses as she arrived at the New York studio for a chat on Wednesday.
Her appearance comes after a memorable holiday in Greece, where she let both her hair and her guard down while partying with her new boyfriend – footballer Pajtim Kasami, who at 23 is 14-years her junior.

While she started off the night looking stunning in a sparkly silver minidress, things went downhill rapidly ending with the starlet flashing her pink underwear as she twerked in the street, cosying up to her blonde pal, Caroline Stanbury – a friend of Prince Andrew – and having to be carried home by Pajtim.
Nicole and Patjim have only just met but the handsome hunk didn’t seem to mind stepping in when things got out of control, carrying her back to her hotel at the end of the night.
A source close to the singer insisted she was simply letting off steam having recently completed work on reality TV show I Can Do That in her native America.
Finshing touches: The singer completed her look with a pair of glossy nude stilettos, while her tousled brunette locks were maintained with a neat centre parting
The insider told MailOnline: ‘Nicole isn’t going out and acting like this every night but she was on holiday with her close friends, celebrating her birthday and completing the show.
‘She just let her hair down and had fun. And it’s been a tough year with her break up from Lewis (Hamilton).
Meanwhile Nicole, a former X Factor judge, is reportedly on the verge of signing up as a coach on BBC1 talent show The Voice UK, where she will replace Rita Ora.

The singer is a ‘front runner’ for the job on the BBC programme, according to The Sun.
Nicole is thought to be flying into the UK this week for talks with BBC chiefs, after current Voice judge Will.i.am has sung her praises.
A BBC source told the paper’s Dan Wootton: ‘Nicole is meeting with some of the top producers on The Voice this week to discuss the prospect of her replacing Rita.
‘Will.i.am, who is our most popular coach, is very close friends with Nicole and has been lobbying hard for her to join the panel.
‘Andrew Lloyd Webber has also sung her praises because of her talent and passion for mentoring young acts.’
Later that same day Nicole sported a figure-hugging beige dress as she was spotted out in New York City.
She coupled the low-cut bandage dress with a pair of coordinating beige pumps, and at times covered up with a stylish black leather jacket.
Nicole wore her tousled caramel locks in loose waves, and hid her eyes behind a pair of over-sized sunglasses.
She had been attending the AOL BUILD Speaker Series Presents: NBC’s I Can Do That at AOL Studios.
The performer made the appearance just days after winning the first season of NBC’s reality competition series I Can Do That.
She had shared her excitement over the win on her Twitter account, writing: ‘So sad to say goodbye but #victory is sooooooo sweet!! Much love to @ciara @cherylburke @joejonas @jeffdye @alanritchson @marlonwayans #ICanDoThat’
