Cheryl Cole loves black this season of X Factor.

If it wasn’t official before, it is now.

Tonight the judge wore an Editions by Georges Chakra Fall 2010 gown which is sold exclusively at Dia Boutique.

The black gown had a very sexy plunging keyhole neckline with a sheer panel, a thigh slit which she showed off à la Blake Lively and an open back.

I love the flowing chiffon skirt and the beaded details on the waist.

I think she worked the gown quite well, but lets talk about the elephant in the room.

The hair.

I think we all saw the hair before the dress.

It made me think of one of the female characters from the game ‘Street Fighter’, but on Twitter they’re saying she looked like Minnie Mouse.

It’s nice she’s doing something different with it.

I’m still very much baffled by it, but I surprisingly didn’t hate it.

I guess it’s a case of ‘Be careful what you wish for’.

Brian Atwood Balleto platform sandals and di Grisogono jewels completed her look.
