Runway To X Factor Italy – Asia Argento In Sophia Kokosalaki

I have been talking about the X Factor a lot since it started 3 weeks ago here in the UK, but Italy also have their own version.

The gorgeous Asia Argento who you may remember was one of the judges during Cannes Film Festival this year, was also a judge on the Italian X Factor this week.

During Cannes she wore a lot of Armani’s Privé gowns, but on the X Factor she looked outstanding wearing a black and gold Sophia Kokosalaki Fall 2009 mini dress, with glossy black leggings and black booties.

I love Sophia Kokosalaki’s work, so I’m happy that she is getting a lot of celebrity love at the moment.

Rinko Kikuchi recently wore a very similar gold and black dress to the 22nd Tokyo International Film Festival Opening Ceremony.

    FC,the man who is near Asia is her ex boyfriend,an Italian alternative-rock singer and now a judge on X-Factor.His name is Morgan ;)
    Francesco Facchinetti is the presenter of the show.
    I’m Italian so I’m sure about this information.
    Anyway,I was wondering which designer Asia wore at the show and now I know.Thank you!I really like the dress.

    I love Sophia Kokosalaki. Is Asia Argento a judge on the Italian version of The X-Factor?!

    • Fashion Critic October 30, 2009 at 16:00 #

      I’m not sure if she was a guest judge or a regular judge.

      Hopefully someone can confirm.

    the picture doesn’t make her justice at all, she was literally GLOWING on screen. I was completely blown away with her, pure gorgeousness <3

      I can only imagine.

      I agree. She looked amazing and I immediately recognized the dress.

  5. Alice[*] October 30, 2009 at 16:05 #

    She was just a guest judge ;)

    I too love Sophia Kokosalaki’s work and I love how this dress hugs Asia’s curves – just not sure about the glossy leggings> Also, I really like the hem detail that appears in the runway model’s dress, and it seems it has been changed in Asia’s dress? Either that or the leggings flatten it out……

    she looks hot, but those shiny legging bug me

    Have to say that Simona Ventura was an X Factor judge until she decided not to join the show this year.On X Factor she wore DSquared2 and Gianfranco Ferrè and on intalian Survivor she wore Valentino,Giorgio Armani and Dolce e Gabbana..she is the most fashionable italian host..according to me you should dedicate some post to her.. ;)
