Nicola Coughlan is a Renaissance work of art modelling a figure-hugging tank dress

We'd never dare tell Queen Charlotte, but we're pretty sure she chose incorrectly when she selected her diamond of the season during season three of Bridgerton. Sure, Francesca Bridgerton (played by Hannah Dodds) is stunning, but anyone who's watched the latest season – don't worry, no spoilers here – will know the plot centres firmly on Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton's love story. And we really heart Polin, and not just because of the duo's spicy sex scenes.

Luckily, Kim Kardashian is here to fix Queen Charlotte's wrong. The SKIMS founder seemingly possesses the same power as the fictional royal to recognise a sparkler. Though while the Queen is choosing the most accomplished, most beautiful, and most eligible maiden on the marriage market, Kim K is booking the biggest name of the moment, from Lana del Rey to Sabrina Carpenter, to model for her shapewear brand. Same same, ya know?

So, no surprise to see the verified Bridgerton fan-girl secured Nicola Coughlan for her brand's new campaign shoot.

Set against a backdrop of Featherington-esque florals with an ethereal feel and Renaissance painting quality, the campaign captures Nicola swathed in SKIMS' figure-hugging stretch-jersey dresses in soft pastel shades including lemonade, cherry blossom and feather grey.

The tank-style designs perfectly show off the actress' self-proclaimed "perfect breasts" – an iconic comment she made during a post-screening Q&A when a journalist commented she was "very brave" going nude on screen in Bridgerton. And tbh, we can't disagree. Nicola is glowing like the ethereal beauty she is in the SKIMS campaign.

Yep, we reckon this is Kim's savviest business move yet. No doubt Lady Whistledown would have a lot to say.
