That is what I said when I saw Cheryl Cole take the stage on the X Factor with her fellow judges Louis Walsh, Dannii Minogue and Simon Cowell on Saturday night.

I would’ve expected Cheryl to wear a this Atelier Versace Spring 2009 strapless gold embellished dress to the finale show, but Mrs Cole wanted to wow us from the start and she did just that.

The only thing I wondered was how was she going to sit in that dress. The skirt has a bird cage like structured skirt and those seats look so narrow.

I half expected the camera to pan to her and see her in another dress.

I can only assume the dress has some kind of collapse mechanism to allow the wearer to sit.

The look was paired with gold leopard print heels from her favourite shoe designer Rupert Sanderson.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Her hair was styled into a loose single plait which was swept across one shoulder, which seems to be inspired by Alexander Wang’s Spring 2010 models.

Sorry it took so long post this. I had to make sure I proper rights to these pictures as I didn’t want to be sued by peeps at X Factor. X Factor posts will be earlier next week.
