'clothes on that may be to attract attention' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I can't understand how they can define each other.

'girl's beginning to enter with no' is the wordplay.
'beginning to' indicates taking the first letters.
'enter' indicates putting letters inside.
'with no' becomes 'nude' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
The first letter of 'girls' is 'g'.
'g' inserted inside 'nude' is 'NUDGE'.

(Other definitions for nudge that I've seen before include "Push with the elbow" , "Festive entertainment" , "Elbow someone gently" , "Shove" , "Prod gently with elbow" .)
