Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

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.

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.

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.

I haven’t changed my mind with regards how I feel about Cheryl Cole from last week, but will always give credit where it is due.

On last nights X Factor she looked the best she’s ever looked all season.

It not quite in the realm of the Atelier Versace and Stéphane Rolland looks she spoilt us with last season, but it’s a step up from the boring samey, unflattering and uninspired looks she’s given us over the past few weeks.

She stepped onto the stage wearing an Emilio Pucci Fall 2010 dress which we’ve seen a hundred times before – well actually 4 times before. Twice in gold and one a piece in black and white.

The one-sleeved gold sequined mini dress really dazzled under the studio lights.

I was also very impressed with her new cut and colour.

That brazen hussy red colour has been replaced by a more demure chestnut colour and the WAG-eqse extensions had been replaced by a shorter classier ‘do which probably had some tracks for body.

Overall this was 10 out of 10 on all fronts from me. It took her 8 weeks, but she finally got there.

If you’ve been wondering why Cheryl always salutes when she’s introduced to the audience, it’s because she mimicking Simon as that’s what he did during ‘American Idol’.

Dannii Minogue looked breath-taking as she walked on the X Factor stage on Saturday night.

We’ve become used to her stealing the spotlight with choices, and her red Carla Zampatti dress did just that again.

I did get a slight feeling of de ja vu because the dress reminded me of the white Carla Zampatti dress she wore in week 6, but this dress has a lot more drama and detail on the skirt.

Her hair was styled into a chic updo which I appreciate every week because that way we get to see her stunning Annoushka earrings.

I’m finding myself looking forward seeing her earrings just as much as her dresses each week, and this is coming from a person who’s not usually fused by jewelery.

Talisman Gallery rings and Sergio Rossi nude pumps completed her look.
