"You are the QUEEN of bikinis," wrote one fan, whilst another agreed: "You SLAY national bikini day!"

Confirming our own thoughts, a third fan commented: "How are you so perfect? Look at your body!"

It's not the first time this week the star has caused some serious vacation envy, taking to Instagram several times to post jaw-dropping bikini photos onboard luxury yachts, dining in fabulous alfresco settings and even performing for Cartier.

Nicole has been living it up in Lake Como this month

The singer posed in front of the steps at the luxurious Villa D'Este, wearing a princess ball gown. She also included clips of her powerhouse performance from the night.

Nicole looked absolutely statuesque in a pastel pink gown which dazzled under the stage lights, complete with some glistening Cartier diamond jewellery. "A singer’s dream come true to perform here. What an honour," she wrote.

To add to our jealousy, she even posted pictures of herself taking in the fireworks one night in a gorgeous white off-the-shoulder gown with Thom as they celebrated her birthday at Lake Como.
