Chef Nigella Lawson protects her skin from the Australian rays

Nigella Lawson hit Bondi Beach for the second day in a row yesterday but decided against wearing her burkini this time.

The TV chef covered her body from head to toe on Monday in an outfit designed to protect the modesty of muslim women, but yesterday she opted to flash a little bit of leg in a black dress instead.

Nigella, 51, who’s famed for her curves and usually seen in figure-hugging outfits, hid under the shade of an umbrella in her unflattering sleeveless black dress.

The conservative high-necked number is sure to have protected the fair-skinned cook from the blazing Australian sun, but she looked a lot different to the domestic goddess we’re used to seeing.
