X Factor: Saturday Week 6 – Cheryl Cole In Roberto Cavalli

On Saturday night, the first word that came out of my mouth when the screen went back to reveal the X Factor judges was, “Finally.”

Finally Cheryl looked gorgeous wearing a Roberto Cavalli champagne coloured beaded gown.

This picture isn’t quite doing her justice, but this is the most glamorous we have seen from the judge in 6 weeks.

The strapless gown looked stunning on screen. I was surprised to read comments on twitter saying the dress was too tight and that she was spilling out of it.

I don’t see that.

Stunning di Grisogono jewels and a bejeweled poppy completed her much improved look.

Was this an improvement for you?

Runway To X Factor – Kylie Minogue In Mark Fast

Kylie Minogue gave us the world premiere of her new single “Better Than Today” on Sunday nights X Factor.

Despite a minor slip in her spikey silver Christian Louboutin heels her performance was flawless.

The Australian singer wore a daring Mark Fast Spring 2011 dress whilst belting out her new single.

The red hot fringed dress is the 4th Mark Fast dress Kylie has worn whilst either performing or for a TV appearance.

Kylie has been supporting a lot of young British based designers recently and I’m sure they are happy to have a mega-star wearing their sexy pieces.

She looked breath-taking and was easily the best dressed on the night.

Piaget jewels completed her look.

X Factor: Sunday Week 5 – Cheryl Cole In Bodyamr

Bodyamr seems to be a Girls Aloud favourite.

Last week Nicola Roberts wore a dress from the Spring 2011 collection, and last night on the X Factor Cheryl Cole picked a look from the same collection.

Unfortunately for Sunday nights results show Cheryl didn’t pick such a fashion forward piece like Nicola.

She opted for a fitted nude embellished one-sleeved dress with a high neckline and a cold shoulder.

As the weeks go on I’m finding myself becoming less enthusiastic about Cheryl’s style on the X Factor.

She’s gone from wearing Atelier Versace and Stéphane Rolland to dresses that leave me totally uninspired.

At this point I going to give up on wishing she will reclaim her glory of last season.

X Factor: Sunday Week 5 – Dannii Minogue In Dolce & Gabbana

On the results show for the X Factor on Sunday night Dannii Minogue arrived on the stage wearing a well worn Dolce & Gabbana dress.

It may have been reissued for the Resort 2011 season, but we’ve seen it a million times before.

I’m so used to Dannii giving us originality that I can’t get excited about this look.

Christian Louboutin pigalle heels Stephen Webster earrings and ring plus a Garrard necklace completed her look.

X Factor: Saturday Week 5 – Cheryl Cole In Emilio Pucci

I found it really hard to get Cheryl Cole’s look on Saturday nights X Factor.

The judge wore an Emilio Pucci Fall 2010 one-sleeve dress with a shoulder strap and sexy lace panels

Her dress was pretty enough but it looked more like lingerie, plus it reminded me of her dress from Week 1.

Cheryl was also clearly inspired by Rihanna last week, because Cheryl sported a floral headband which didn’t work for me either.

This has to be my least favourite look from Cheryl on the X Factor.

She was in LA for a few days this week so maybe she didn’t have much time to work on this look.

Christian Louboutin studded heels completed her look.

X Factor: Saturday Week 5 – Dannii Minogue In Philip Armstrong

Dannii Minogue was a perfect vision of loveliness on Saturday night when she stepped on the X Factor stage.

She wore a nude Philip Armstrong Spring 2010 metallic dress which had a bow neckline.

This is the type of structured interesting non-predictable dress I want to see more of from Dannii.

The mother of one looked sophisticated and effortlessly elegant.

This is the second time since the show started that I really loved – instead of just liked – her look.

Stephen Webster and Annoushka jewels, plus Brian Atwood nude heels completed her look.

She was easily my favourite this week.

X Factor: Rihanna In William Tempest

Rihanna performed live on the X Factor on Sunday evening.

The singer wowed audiences with a rendition of her latest single “Only Girl (In The World).”

Mid way through her performance her dancers started a food fight by throwing cakes around the “Alice In Wonderland” set.

The ‘mad hatter’ wore a William Tempest Spring 2011 dress.

You may remember that I picked this dress as one of my top 10 looks from New York Fashion Week.

Florals accents adorned her head and her white and nude devore dress with a sculptural skirt.

This was always going to be a performance dress rather than a red carpet dress, as I can’t see how any star would be able to sit in this beautiful dress.

I would’ve loved the look even more had it not been for those biker boots, but Rihanna does rock this look really well.
