Last night on the X Factor Cheryl Cole wasn’t the first to wear the purple and pink Ina Soltani Fall 2010 dress.

Actress Lucy Liu wore the same dress back in April when she attended the Actors Fund Annual Gala in New York City.

The petite actress wore her hair back in a bun and complemented her black velvet belt with black YSL pumps and a black clutch.

Cheryl wins this for me as I prefer the length of her skirt, her hairstyle and her matchy purple pumps.

Lucy’s black accessories don’t really work for me.
