Alesha Dixon In Valentino – ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Manchester Auditions

Alesha Dixon In Valentino - ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Manchester Auditions

Alesha Dixon joined her co-judge Amanda Holden for the Manchester auditions for ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ held at The Lowry on Thursday (January 29) in Manchester, England.

After her two previous looks failed to excite, this sees her on the road to redemption.

Back to her best, Alesha wore a ladylike and exquisitely playful Valentino Resort 2015 mini dress in a striking combination of black and red.

Finished with delicate ruffles, I love the contrast of the sharp, dainty collar and the sheer chiffon yoke.

Christian Louboutin tri-colour ‘Aqua Ronda’ PVC sandals, a Stephen Webster ear cuff and shoulder-length Sonal Bhaskaran earrings completed the look.

Do you agree this sees Alesha back to her best, or did you prefer her more muted recent offerings?

Alesha Dixon In Rick Owens – 2015 National Television Awards

Alesha Dixon In Rick Owens - 2015 National Television Awards

Alesha Dixon attended the National Television Awards held at the 02 Arena on Wednesday (January 21) in London, England.

The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge wore a Rick Owens black high-neck dress, which did nothing for her or me.

Perhaps Alesha has a new stylist as she’s gone from colourful, vibrant dresses of the House of Holland and Peter Pilotto variety to this sombre offering.

Even when styled with Stephen Webster jewels and Kurt Geiger sandals, there is nothing, apart from that gorgeous face, that can make me like this look.

Maybe with a new stylist she wanted a change. But is it a change for the better?

So far for me, no.

Alesha Dixon In Stella McCartney & Amanda Holden In Samuel Dougal – ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Edinburgh Auditions

Alesha Dixon In Stella McCartney & Amanda Holden In Samuel Dougal - 'Britain's Got Talent' Edinburgh Auditions

‘Britain’s Got Talent’ kicked-off its 2015 campaign with Edinburgh auditions held at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre on Monday (January 19) in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Alesha Dixon: The judged looked as beautiful and statuesque as ever wearing a Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2014 strapless, tailored, textured floral jacquard dress featuring a sweetheart neckline. Her styling was very much on point with gold accessories and a hot-pink lip.

Amanda Holden: Not to be outdone, Amanda also served up a very chic offering by Samuel Dougal. The red skirt suit, which some might liken to John Galliano at Dior, featured an off-the-shoulder belted blazer to set this apart from the usual skirt suit. Topped off with a red lip, the look was completed with Bionda Castana ‘Lana’ pumps to give this classic look a more modern feel.

2014 MTV EMAs Red Carpet Roundup

2014 MTV EMAs Red Carpet Roundup

The MTV EMAs 2014 took place at The Hydro on Sunday (November 9) in Glasgow, Scotland. I was expecting to be at least entertained by the red carpet arrivals; sadly it was a total bust. Perhaps they could can the event for good if this is the best they could muster for the red carpet.

Ariana Grande: Finally letting her hair down – literally, not metaphorically – the singer showed a more grown-up side to her red carpet dressing. Her black Cristiano Burani gown with cut-outs is basically a copy of a Michael Kors Spring 2013 gown which was much loved by Alicia Keys and Myleene Klass.

Alesha Dixon: Even with its decorative detailing, this Mary Katrantzou ‘Oriane’ shirt dress doesn’t feel glam enough for an awards ceremony. Taking the event out of the equation, I simply adore this bold look styled with fierce Sophia Webster ‘Mila’ cage sandals and a violet lip to die for.

2014 Pride of Britain Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2014 Pride of Britain Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of a few other notables who attended the Pride of Britain Awards held at The Grosvenor House Hotel on Monday (October 6) in London, England.

Alesha Dixon: The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge opted to flip the script, wearing a suit instead of a dress. The Ong-Oaj Pairam printed suit with leather patches was one of the sexiest looks on the red carpet despite all the attention-seeking plunging necklines and thigh-high slits.

Rachel Stevens: The singer, who hasn’t aged a day since her S Club 7 days, wore a David Koma Fall 2014 LBD, with the designer’s signature leather detailing adding a layer of sex appeal to the look. I perhaps would’ve been more excited about this look had she taken the dress up a few inches, but I do love her accessories, including a silver Anya Hindmarch ‘Crisp Packet’ clutch and teal-green Jimmy Choo pumps. You may remember that Jessica Alba wore a similar look to the Spike TV’s ‘Guys Choice’ awards.

Kara Tointon: The actress wore a signature lace Lover ‘Libra’ high-neck cap-sleeved frock which doesn’t feel quite right for the occasion, which is surprising considering she usually serves up high glamour on every occasion. I also can’t get past the makeup in this instance, which is making her appear rather ghostly.

Who Wore House of Holland Better…Alesha Dixon, Vanessa White or Gillian Jacobs?

Who wore house of holland better

This starburst print House of Holland Resort 2014 navy and coral dress has had three outings by three lovely ladies.

Alesha Dixon was the first to wear the dress while promoting her new fragrance, ‘Rose Quartz’ back in January, followed by Vanessa White who wore hers to the International Fashion Showcase in London and Gillian Jacobs who wore hers to PalyFest’s honouring of ‘Community’.

With Alesha opting for Sophia Webster coral shoes, Vanessa going for black pumps and Gillian Jacobs wearing navy Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, we can quickly discount Vanessa.

Henry Holland’s dresses evoke fun and free spirit and the shoes that matched that ethos were the coral Sophia Webster sandals, so Alesha wins for me.
