Despite the controversy, which I will stay away from at this is a fashion site, Cheryl Cole walked onto the X Factor stage with her head held high on Saturday night.

The judge wore a Daniel Vosovic Spring 2011 asymmetrical LBD which the designer had presented during New York Fashion Week.

The designer will be more familiar to those in the US as he was on Project Runway.

Cheryl’s LBD was paired with Valentino bow-embellished satin sandals and De Grisogono jewels.

I do love the dress, its sexy and sweet at the same time.

I do prefer that you can see more of the lace underlay on the runway, but I totally understand that Cheryl needed more coverage for a TV show.

Who wins Saturday nights style battle?

Cheryl or Dannii?
