Runway To X Factor Week 8 – Cheryl Cole In Stéphane Rolland Couture

On Saturday night’s X Factor Cheryl Cole opted for something different.

She wore a gold palliette covered Stéphane Rolland Spring 2008 dress with a black chiffon sleeve, plus a large black bow on the side.

I went back and forth with this look many times.

On the one hand the bow feels a bit OTT for the dress, but without it the dress would’ve been less interesting.

The ankle boots are kill me, but those cute dimples make me forgive and forget.

I loved Cheryl’s Sunday night look.

Her black Stéphane Rolland Fall 2009 Couture one-shoulder dress was very elegant and sophisticated, and a lot more interesting compared to her Jean Paul Gaultier all black look a few weeks ago.

I loved the gathered detail on the shoulder and how her hair was styled into an elegant updo. She does edge a lot so this look was refreshing for me.

Despite both Dannii and Cheryl looking amazing on Sunday night, the biggest talking point was Simon Cowell’s suit.

This was because for the first time on X Factor Simon wasn’t wearing a black suit. I think the grey suits him quite nicely.

Runway To Gossip Girl – Blake Lively In Farah Angsana & Nanette Lepore

Thankfully I have Sky+ otherwise I would miss all my favourite programmes.

Last night I watched about 2 hours of Coronation Street back-to-back – finally Tony Gordon has been found out – and Gossip Girl which usually airs in the UK on a Wednesday night.

The episode was called “How To Succeed in Bassness” were Chuck threw a 1920’s-themed party for the opening of his club.

It was at the event we got to see Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen looking absolutely amazing wearing vintage silver embellished dress. She paired her dress with a Farah Angsana mint silk cape embellished with crystal embroidery from the designer’s Fall 2009 collection.

Her dress was paired with nude fishnet tights, and Christian Louboutin Very Galaxy peep-toes.

In another scene in the same episode we saw Serena at work with Blair listening to Serena’s telephone conversation with Chuck.

Serena was wearing a silky Nanette Lepore Darjeeling dress, with gold sequin embellishments, a sexy keyhole detail at bateau neckline, cute puffed three-quarter sleeves, and a flattering keyhole detail.

Dannii Minogue Wears Ralph and Russo & Donna Karan On Week 7 Of The X Factor

On Saturday nights X Factor show Dannii Minogue’s Ralph & Russo dress was a total disaster.

I only have 3 words for it TACKY, Tacky and tacky.

It looks like something a WAG like Alex Curran would wear.

Her dress was so dated and screams Euro trash, I was incredibly disappointed with her look.

Joan isn’t looking any better in this picture.

Dannii managed to redeem herself and do a complete 180 on Sunday’s show wearing an elegant Donna Karan Fall 2009 belted merlot jersey gown.

The turtle-neck gown hugged her curves and was more sophisticated than her previous look.

I think that Dannii should just stick to J’Aton Couture, as she was a knock-out when they were dressing her.

Everything else seems to pale in comparison.

Runway To X Factor Week 7 – Cheryl Cole In Giles & Jean Pierre Braganza

My first reaction when I saw Cheryl Cole on Saturday nights X Factor was “What the hell is she wearing?”

I’m her biggest fan, but this Giles Spring 2010 dress was ridiculous.

I tried to convince myself to like it during the show telling myself the look was cute and fun, but then she stood up to give Joe Mcelderry a standing ovation, and then I saw her thorn tattoo around her thigh and it just confirmed how wrong this look was for her.

It was Wham night, so I guessed the hairstyle was supposed to resemble a young Madonna in “Desperately Seeking Susan”, but ended up looking very childish.

Her Christian Louboutin Fifre ankle boots were the icing on a very tasteless cake.

Sunday night was much better as the X Factor judge wore a hot pink Jean Pierre Braganza Spring 2010 backless cold-shoulder dress from the designers ‘Psychadelactica’ collection.

I loved the bold colour, the tasteful plunging neckline, and the cute matching globe earrings.

The look was paired with Nicholas Kirkwood pearl embellished sandals.

Like I said it was better, but overall it she’s had much better weeks on the show.

Runway To “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” Promotional Tour – Kristen Stewart In Jason Wu & Herve Leger

So far the best looks Kristen Stewart has given us during the “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” promotional tour in my opinion were her Balenciaga and Proenza Schouler looks.

Why?

Because these look weren’t to girlie.

Last night Kristen and Taylor Lautner attend a screening of the movie in Tennessee wearing a Jason Wu Spring 2010 girlie dress.

Technically it shouldn’t have worked, but Kristen didn’t make this look seem like too much hard work.

I like that she belted the dress, and managed to keep her hair under control.

It’s wasn’t Cinderella fantasy tulle gown that didn’t suit her shape, nor personality and I don’t feel like she was wrestled into this dress.

This week Kristen was on the “Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” to promote the movie.

On the show she runs her fingers throw Conan’s hair after admitting she was “jealous” that Nikki Reed ran run her fingers through O’Brien’s hair during a 2008 Late Night appearance.

In the interview interview she talks about not liking fame, and expresses that she’s in the industry to make movies that her fans will love.

Will they love her wearing this black and white Herve Leger Resort 2010 dress?

Maybe they will, but they can’t seriously applaud that frightful hairstyle.

Runway To X Factor Week 6 – Dannii Minogue In Lisa Ho

On Saturday nights X Factor, Dannii Minogue surprised us all by not wearing J’Aton Couture.

Instead she wore a strapless gown slashed to her thighs by Australian designer Lisa Ho.

It’s a beautiful look, but Dannii has spoilt us with so much couture this series that this look didn’t have same wow factor as previous week.

I loved Danni’s hair, and the stunning silver statement necklace she paired with her sandy gown.

I loved Dannii’s Lisa Ho Spring 2009 printed kaftan, but it didn’t feel quite right for a Sunday night TV show.

It was perfect for St.Tropez or some other luxury holiday, but alongside Cheryl’s futuristic look Danni looked really out of place.

I also didn’t like her ponytail.

Firstly because it was crimped and secondly because I’ve grown so fond of her with shorter hair.

Burgundy YSL heels completed the look.
