Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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That brazen hussy red colour has been replaced by a more demure chestnut colour and the WAG-eqse extensions had been replaced by a shorter classier ‘do which probably had some tracks for body.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

Whilst Cheryl Cole was scrapping like a back-street alley cat, Dannii Minogue was class personified on Saturday nights X Factor.

The Australian judge wore a warm chocolatey Gucci Pre-Fall 2010 halter dress with a gold necklace detail.

I would’ve been tempted to add a gold belt to this dress, but the dress worked perfectly without it.

Her effortless grown up style continues to impress. There is nothing try hard about Dannii.

Her look was accessorized with Annoushka earrings which totally perfected the look, plus a Talisman Gallery ring and Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

I want to focus on fashion, but last night on the X Factor Cheryl Cole proved that despite all the designer clothes, the L’Oreal contract and the best efforts of her PR team to make us forget about the Cheryl Tweedy who attacked a toilet attendant, she still has no class.

I lost total and utter respect for her when she used the show to try to publicly humiliate Wagner over some false media story in the Mirror of all papers. Like it’s the holy bible of truth.

She reminded us that the show isn’t about the contestants vying for a £1 million recording contract, but that the show is ALL ABOUT HER.

She needs to count her blessing because she can’t sing and she did get lucky, so she needs to climb down from her high horse and get over herself.

You can read her embarrassing attack on Wagner here.

As for what she wore on Saturday night I think Julien MacDonald summed up my feelings on her style this week when he allegedly said to her, “Who are you trusting and who are you working with? What are you thinking?” To which she allegedly ran off crying.

Truth hurts. Allegedly.

Cheryl’s lost her mojo. She doesn’t care anymore and this “Dancing On Ice” costume proved that.

I can’t wait for the public apology tonight which will be scripted to perfection by her PR team.

Thanks to High Heel Confidential for identifying Cheryl’s dress.

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.
