Britney Spears In Brian Lichtenberg – ‘The X Factor’ Season 2 Austin Auditions

Britney Spears attended her first round of auditions as judge for ‘The X Factor’ Season 2 in Austin, Texas, yesterday afternoon.

She sported a neon-pink Brian Lichtenberg dress.

Her bright textured short-sleeve dress with a sheer panel is typical Britney. I hope before the finale she will have shaken herself out of the style rut and be introduced to another style of dress.

Every time it’s the same thing. Figure-hugging, short, sans bra.

We have a long way to go, so could someone please give her some assistance?

As if things couldn’t get worse, she teamed her pink dress with black suede YSL Tribtoo pumps.

Wavy curls, dark eye makeup and a pink lip shade completed the look.

Kelly Rowland In Vivienne Westwood & Stella McCartney & Tulisa Contostavlos In Alexander McQueen – X Factor Liverpool Auditions

Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos were at the Echo Arena for the Liverpool X Factor auditions today.

Both opted mid-season looks by British designers.

Kelly wore Stella McCartney Resort 2011 floral print shorts which she teamed with a blue top, a navy Vivienne Westwood blazer and Giuseppe Zanotti tan boots.

The tribal necklace was one thing too much for this look which already has so much going on. I think the earrings and the cuff provide enough bling.

Tulisa went in the opposite direction opting for a less busy look without any jewelry.

Her red Alexander McQueen sleeveless dress is from the Pre-Fall 2011 collection.

The cute pleated dress was paired with black Nicholas Kirkwood mesh sandals.

A fishtail plait completed her look.

Tulisa has yet to master owning a look. She doesn’t appear to have any belief in anything she wears.

It’s a beautiful dress, yet she’s not selling it to me.

It’s gonna be a long winter without the X Factor this year.

The X Factor UK Judges London Auditions

I think it’s fair to say that interest in the X Factor judges has waned somewhat since Cheryl Cole left.

I personally won’t be watching this year and many of you have expressed the same.

The Simon Cowell money-making machine rolled into London this week with Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland walking the red carpet dressed to impress.

Kelly wore a Versace Spring 2011 multi-coloured striped two-piece which showed off her super toned tiny waist.

The former Destiny’s Child singer accessorized her look with black Charlotte Olympia pumps, a Sass & Bide cuff and Lara Bohinc jewels.

N-Dubz singer Tulisa greeted fans wearing an Alexander McQueen butterfly jacquard mini dress.

Her cap sleeve dress was paired with navy YSL Tribute sandals.

Love it or leave it?

The X Factor UK Judges Birmingham Auditions

It’s only day one of the X Factor UK Birmingham auditions and already the new judges are in locked in a bitter “style war.”

Last year it was Cheryl Cole vs. Dannii Minogue, this year it’s Kelly Rowland vs. Tulisa Contostavlos.

Both ladies have very different styles.

Despite the big hype both looked quite meh today.

Kelly tried waaaaay too hard wearing a neon yellow lace Twenty8Twelve cropped top with a black mini skirt and the appropriately named Lady ‘Daf’ Louboutin pumps

I was more pleasantly surprised by Tulisa who was more demure wearing a black DKNY jumpsuit with red sandals.

I’m sure as time goes on designers will start throwing clothes at these two.

Remember how Cheryl went from Alice + Olivia and Topshop to Atelier Versace and Stéphane Rolland? I can’t see that happening on this occasion, but you never know.
