Runway To X Factor Week 5 – Cheryl Cole In Jean Paul Gaultier & Marios Schwab

On Saturday I couldn’t help but be disappointed watching Cheryl Cole walked onto the X Factor stage.

After her bold David Koma statement dress, her Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2009 sheath dress was tame in comparison.

I can only believe that the criticism of last weeks choice got to her.

Her JPG dress was instantly recognisable by the X on the bodice, which was featured on many pieces in the Fall 2009 collection.

Her dress appeared to be modified slightly from the runway, as her dress was embellished with black crystals to allow the dress to sparkle on screen.

She paired her dress with black platforms.

The dress was just OK, but the hairstyle felt very dated.

She should’ve pulled it back to show off the X and details on her dress.

I loved Cheryl’s burst of colour on Sunday nights show.

The judge wore a Marios Schwab shift dress with crystal-embellishments in an opening in the bodice from the Fall 2009 collection.

She interesting paired her dress with nude heels.

Again I had a problem with the hair.  On Saturday night it felt to dated, whereas her hair on Sunday nights show looked like the stylist got his inspiration from a local school playground.

You may remember that Sienna Miller wore a watered down and nearly unrecognisable version of this dress earlier this year.

    I actually loved the first dress, but the hair, I agree.

    Once again, on sunday, an excellent dress again (I actually prefer it with the embellished, unlike Sienna Miller, who wore a modified dress without it), but horrible hair.

    She needs to fire her hair stylist because it’s embarassing that her hair always looks horrible on this show. What’s worse is that she has L’Oreal campaign!

    The first dress was rather muted compared to what Cheryl has been wearing on the show eg the amazing Versace dresses. Yup! The hair needs to go or revamped especially if she wants to be taken seriously as a ‘fashion icon’. Please give us something else, Cheryl!!

    The first is nice in my opinion. It won’t get on any best dressed lists, but it certainly won’t get on worst dressed lists. The X is the only thing on the dress you can even talk about.

    The red on the other hand will stay in my mind. The pop of color and the little beeding contrast all work, especially on stage with the lights hitting it. Overall, another nice night of fashion for Cheryl.
