What The X Factor Contestants Wore In Week 1

Yesterday we saw how stunning Cheryl Cole looked in her Atelier Versace dress, today we look at what the contestants, Alexander Burke and Dannii Minogue wore.

Rachel Adedeji – who Louis Walsh called the UK’s answer to Rihanna – wore navy skinny jeans, orange platform heels, with a sequin stripy top which I thought was from the Balmain Fall 2009 collection, but it’s just a very good copy.

Stacey Solomon wore a Dolce & Gabbana Marilyn Monroe motif tee with jeans, a leather belt and studded sandals.

Both are wearing KG for Kurt Geiger heels.

Lucie Jone wore a purple BCBG Max Azria silk dress with a drape on one side.

Her dress was paired with nude and black multi-strap sandals from River Island.

Reigning X Factor champion Alexandra Burke performed her new single “Bad Boys” on Sunday’s result show.

I was really surprised at how good the song was, and also how fabulous she looked.

The diva-in-training put in a very energetic performance wearing a gold paillette mini dress paired with matching Christian Louboutin Archidisco 120 T-bar sandals.

Dannii Minogue looked like she didn’t even want to try to compete with Cheryl as they are constantly in ‘Dannii vs. Cheryl style wars’ which must get very tiresome.

She kept her look very demure wearing a purple plunging dress paired with jewels from Kara Ross and Valerie Wade.

Runway To Simon Cowell’s 50 Birthday Party

I held off posting this for a day hoping we would get better pictures, but this is the best it’s going to get.

I’m so gutted we don’t get to see a full length picture of Cheryl Cole wearing the same Versace dress which Blake Lively wore to the Costume Institute gala.

Cheryl is so petite, so I would have been interested to see if she could carry off such a dress.

I love the dress, but the 80s style hair is a buzz kill.

Chloe Green daughter of Sir Phillip Green look gorgeous wearing the same Balmain gown we have seen Beyonce Knowles wear on the red carpet.

Again I wish I could see more of the dress, which she is carrying in order not to drag her £10,000 gown on the floor.

My absolute favourite was Terri Seymour, the long suffering ex-girlfriend of Simon Cowell.

With the wind in her hair and the skirt of her Marchesa Resort 2009 strapless embroidered gown, she looks like an angel even though both Taylor Swift and Mary J Blige wore this same dress in different colours last year.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell wows in a white satin Atelier Versace Fall 2009 lace up gown, as she sparkles with a diamond and pearl necklace by Fawaz Gruosi.

Dannii Minogue and Amanda Holden both opted for Ralph & Russo gowns.

Dannii looked effortlessly chic in a black and gold Ralph & Russo dress, whilst Amanda was blinged out in a white heavily embellished gown.

Hopefully Hello! or OK! magazine will feature non photoshopped pictures of this event.

I hate those magazines when they photoshop guests together in pictures. It so incredibly obvious and tacky.

Runway To X Factor Dubai Auditions – Kylie Minogue In Emanuel Ungaro & Danni Minogue In J’Aton Couture

The X Factor judges took the final 24 contests on various locations for their final auditions.

Dannii Minogue took her 6 to Dubai, where she introduced her sister Kylie as the second judge.

Kylie wore a cute mini green one-shouldered Emanuel Ungaro Spring 2009 dress.

Thanks to everyone who identified Dannii’s stunning multi-coloured gown as J’Aton Couture. I need to brush up on my Australian designers.

It was quite easily my favourite look of that show.

Kylie looked amazing and took in the screams of delight from girls who were lucky enough to meet her.

Even Dannii seem in total awe of her sister. It was such a cute moment.

Myer Spring/Summer 2009/10 Collection Launch

The X Factor is due to start on Saturday in the UK, and I can barely contain my excitement.

We’ll be watching what has been taped weeks in advance, so this gives the judges some time out before the drama of the live shows in the Autumn.

X Factor judge Dannii Minogue is back at home in Australia, and she was sitting front row at this show wearing strapless corseted Victoria Beckham Fall 2009 dress with an organza bodice overlay and sequin hip panel.

Danni wore her dress with black clutch and Christian Louboutin pigalle heels.

The dress looks good on Dannii, but it would’ve been better had she shortened it.

No matter what we say about Victoria’s style, it seems that celebs just can’t get enough of VB threads that the moment.

Victoria Beckham and Selita Ebanks have both already worn this dress.

Former Miss Universe, Jennifer Hawkins is currently the very pretty face of “Myer”.

She arrived on the red carpet wearing a plunging black dress, with a bow detail on the waist and crystal details on the shoulders.  Those details remind me of the Givenchy Spring 2009 collection.

Black peep-toes complete the look.

Lara Bingle was ‘glowing’ in a pale pink long sleeve Prada dress which has a the back cut-out.

Her hair was slight wild and messy and her make-up kept light.

YSL white strappy sandals complete the look.

X Factor Judges Spotted in Glasgow

I’m over the moon excited that X Factor auditions have started, because it means we can get a regular peek in to Cheryl Cole’s closet, and marvel at how her hair stays so voluminous.

She arrived in Glasgow for the first auditions wearing an Alexander McQueen top, Alexander Wang black leather pants, and Rupert Sanderson black pumps.

Last year we saw her on the show wearing Matthew Williamson, Tibi, Julien Macdonald, Luella, and Krystof Strozyna.

According to Grazia, she has been seen stocking up on labels such as Maje.

We should look foward to seeing these Maje pieces in the early auditions.

Danni Minogue arrived in Glasgow with a brand new shorter hair style, sporting an embellished knitted dress.

Danni wore lesser known designers last year, and I’m sure she will stick to that same formula this time around.
