The pair were clad in business clothes for the late night shoot, perhaps taking a detour from their original plans for the evening.

Nicole hid her slim figure in a somewhat frumpy ensemble consisting of a loose brown blouse, grey pencil skirt, long black cardigan, and nude pumps.

The Oscar winner wore minimal make-up, as her strawberry locks were styled in a relaxed low ponytail.
