X Factor Saturday Final: Rebecca Ferguson In Luisa Beccaria, Richard Sorger & William Tempest

Apart from Dannii Mingoue the only shining light from this series of the X Factor has been Rebecca Ferguson.

She floored me with a beautiful rendition of Corinne Bailey Rae’s ‘Like A Star’.

Not only by her voice, but also by her breath-taking Luisa Beccaria Fall 2010 gown.

The mother of two from Liverpool has worn a few gowns during this series, most of which have overwhelmed her, but on this occasion she hit the right note.

It was dramatic without being over the top and the colour was gorgeous against her caramel skin-tone.

I was totally baffled by pairing of Rebecca Ferguson and Christina Aguilera. Clearly it was a case of who was in town, rather than finding someone to complement Rebecca’s voice.

Rebecca was class personified in her Richard Sorger Spring 2009 dress as she started singing ‘Beautiful’.

I loved the bejeweled neckline on her nude silk dress.

Christina looked like she was on a 10 minute break from working the poll at Peter Stringfellows. It was an awful match up and Christina totally dominated the song and didn’t allow Rebecca to shine during the duet.

As Rebecca walked onto the stage with her mentor prior to the results being read out, Rebecca looked gorgeous wearing a William Tempest Fall 2010 dress.

Her dress with a silver metallic bodice and cream skirt with a peplum at the waist, shows Rebecca has a very diverse style which doesn’t seem forced or manufactured.

I hope she wins so we can see more of her in the future.

For a Saturday night X Factor final Cheryl opted for a soft grecian look.

Her cream asymmetrical one shoulder Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 gown was decorated in silver embellishments across the bodice.

The gown was stunning, but I just couldn’t get on board with the ‘just got out of the shower’ hair.

Rebecca outshone her mentor last night.

X Factor: Sunday Week 9 – Cheryl Cole In Zuhair Murad

Cheryl Cole also wore a black dress on the X Factor on Sunday night.

The judge was the 3rd person to wear a Zuhair Muard Fall 2010 dress this weekend as Katy Perry and Anna Kendrick also selected looks from this collection.

I loved the one shouldered dress with a chiffon train falling from the hips, but for some reason I had this a strong feeling of de ja vu.

The dress was nice, but nothing to get excited about on Cheryl.

Black pumps completed her look.

X Factor: Sunday Week 9 – Dannii Minogue In Jasper Conran

On Sunday night Dannii Minogue continued her flawless run on the X Factor.

Her style is the only thing that keeps me watching the show as the show appears to be fixed and the contestants are so very dull.

Dannii looked like a Hollywood icon taking the stage wearing a Jasper Conran Fall 2009 strapless dress.

I love that she didn’t mute the lace dress by lining it.

As we’ve come to appreciate every week she glows and outshines her fellow younger judge.

Christian Louboutin heels and Annoushka jewels completed her look.

Two more looks go.

X Factor: Saturday Week 9 – Cheryl Cole In Stéphane Rolland Couture

I had mixed emotions when Cheryl Cole walked onto the X Factor stage on Saturday night.

On the one hand I was happy that she’s finally wearing Stéphane Rolland, but unfortunately her white Fall 2008 Couture dress with a black obi-style belt falls a bit flat on her – literally.

The look has a lot more personality on the runway. The decision to flatten the structure and folds on this dress wasn’t a smart one in my opinion.

You know how I feel about tampering with Couture, so this look doesn’t quite work for me as she presented it.

I don’t hate it, but she took this look from Couture to Pre-Fall.

Champagne coloured pumps and crystal drop earrings completed her look.

X Factor: Saturday Week 9 – Dannii Minogue In Aurelio Costarella

Dannii Minogue made yet another breath-taking entrance onto the X Factor stage on Saturday night.

The Australian judge was radiant wearing a nude Spring 2010 dress by Australian designer Aurelio Costarella.

You may remember that Dannii wore Aurelio Costarella twice during last years X Factor.

Every week I say this is my favourite look from Dannii and I have to say it again because she is constantly outdoing herself.

The colour of her dress is divine, I love the lace panels on the sides which gives the looks a narrow waist and I love the Carrie-esqe corsage on the shoulder.

As always she accessorizes perfectly wearing Annoushka earrings, a Talisman Gallery and gold Fendi heels.

I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it again; she glows in designs from her motherland. Every week she’s like a breath of fresh air.

X Factor: Sunday Week 8 – Cheryl Cole In Gianfranco Ferré

So Cheryl Cole, do we have to fall out before you start wearing clothes I like?

Tonight on the X Factor Cheryl wore one of my favourite looks from Gianfranco Ferré’s Fall 2010 collection.

The elegant gold gown carries on the golden girl theme from Saturday nights show.

Her shimmering jersey gown with a beaded bodice and front panel was absolutely gorgeous.

This now becomes my favourite look from her this season.

It looks better on Cheryl than it does on the model as it’s more fitted around Cheryl’s waist.

She’s really had a great weekend style-wise. Let’s pray she keeps it up.

Brown suede Christian Louboutin heels and di Grisogono jewels completed her look.

X Factor: Sunday Week 8 – Dannii Minogue In Halston

On the X Factor tonight Dannii Minogue let her hair down after a few weeks of sporting elegant updo’s.

As you know I’m not really a fan of her ombre hair and tonight her hairstyle made her look like medusa.

She arrived on stage wearing a black Halston Spring 2011 plunging halter gown with a draped skirt.

The sleek black dress was accented with a gold waistband and a red HIV Awareness pin.

I loved everything about this look excluding the hair.

Dannii accessorized with Talisman Gallery earrings and Charlotte Olympia heels.
