Who Wore Notte by Marchesa Better? Ashanti or Kelly Rowland

Ashanti chose this pretty pink Notte by Marchesa dress to attend the launch of the “2BHAPPY” jewelry collection in New York back in November 2010.

The sleeveless fuchsia dress features a gorgeous ruffled trim draped along the body.

The singer accessorized with black diamond encrusted ankle-strap heels and “2BHAPPY” jewelry, including an oversized pink heart shaped cocktail ring and rows of bracelets in assorted metals.

Ashanti finished her look by styling her blonde-streaked hair in soft waves and wearing brown and gold smoky eye-shadow.

Kelly Rowland wore the same dress to attend the 2011 BET Awards back in June.

The singer paired her look with diamond hooped earrings and bracelets and nude cut-out sandals.

Kelly chose to wear her hair in a sleek up-do with side swept bangs and don light pink lipstick.

Whilst I prefer Ashanti’s hairstyle and shoes, Kelly is definitely getting my vote as I think the dress fits her body much better. I also like her diamond accessories better than Ashanti’s as they’re much more elegant and complement the dress better. Ashanti’s feel a little too costume-y for my liking.

Kelly Rowland In Versace – The X Factor Press Launch

Kelly Rowland joined her fellow X Factor judges Louis Walsh, Tulisa Contostavlos and Gary Barlow for the official photocall at 02 Arena in London today.

Kelly looked amazing wearing a Versace Fall 2011 dress.

The singer showed off her stunning figure in her LBD with a green python panel snaking around the dress.

I love the long soft curls, but the Giuseppe Zanotti wedges weigh down the look.

She always seems to opt for heavy Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and this occasion was no different, unfortunately.

This is Kelly’s second Versace look whilst promoting the UK X Factor.

She definitely has the body and attitude to pull off Versace.

Kelly Rowland In Cushnie et Ochs – “Here I Am” Album Launch Party

Kelly Rowland was supported by her girls Beyonce Knowles (in Lanvin) and Michelle Williams for the launch party of her new album, “Here I Am.”

The soiree was held in the Moet Rose Lounge at the top of The Standard Hotel in New York City last night.

Kelly made sure she wasn’t in anyone’s shadow by wearing an uber sexy Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2011 dress with a central split.

I wish she’s pulled her hair off her shoulders so we could get a good look at the sleek black halter with cut-out details in the bodice.

Her dress was teamed with a pair of very heavy Alejandro Ingelmo woven slingbacks, which have been worn by her former Destiny’s Child band-mate LeToya Luckett to the 2009 BET Awards.

Blue eye make-up made her eyes pop plus she added Lorraine Schwartz and OFIRA jewelry to complete her look.

Kelly Rowland In Vivienne Westwood & Stella McCartney & Tulisa Contostavlos In Alexander McQueen – X Factor Liverpool Auditions

Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos were at the Echo Arena for the Liverpool X Factor auditions today.

Both opted mid-season looks by British designers.

Kelly wore Stella McCartney Resort 2011 floral print shorts which she teamed with a blue top, a navy Vivienne Westwood blazer and Giuseppe Zanotti tan boots.

The tribal necklace was one thing too much for this look which already has so much going on. I think the earrings and the cuff provide enough bling.

Tulisa went in the opposite direction opting for a less busy look without any jewelry.

Her red Alexander McQueen sleeveless dress is from the Pre-Fall 2011 collection.

The cute pleated dress was paired with black Nicholas Kirkwood mesh sandals.

A fishtail plait completed her look.

Tulisa has yet to master owning a look. She doesn’t appear to have any belief in anything she wears.

It’s a beautiful dress, yet she’s not selling it to me.

It’s gonna be a long winter without the X Factor this year.

The X Factor UK Judges London Auditions

I think it’s fair to say that interest in the X Factor judges has waned somewhat since Cheryl Cole left.

I personally won’t be watching this year and many of you have expressed the same.

The Simon Cowell money-making machine rolled into London this week with Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland walking the red carpet dressed to impress.

Kelly wore a Versace Spring 2011 multi-coloured striped two-piece which showed off her super toned tiny waist.

The former Destiny’s Child singer accessorized her look with black Charlotte Olympia pumps, a Sass & Bide cuff and Lara Bohinc jewels.

N-Dubz singer Tulisa greeted fans wearing an Alexander McQueen butterfly jacquard mini dress.

Her cap sleeve dress was paired with navy YSL Tribute sandals.

Love it or leave it?

Kelly Rowland In Edition by Georges Chakra – The 5th Anniversary “Creme of the Crop” Post BET Awards Dinner Celebration

After the 2011 BET Awards, Kelly Rowland attended the 5th Anniversary “Creme of the Crop” Post BET Awards Dinner.

The singer wore an Edition by Georges Chakra Fall 2010 mini dress.

Silver sequins and beaded details covered her asymmetrical dress with a nude insert going across the body.

This is a perfect look for someone with a super hot body like Kelly.

I just wish she would return to her Destiny’s Child cropped hairstyle, as her current style does nothing for her.

Jimmy Choo ‘Dome’ diamanté-embellished suede sandals completed her look.

2011 BET Awards Red Carpet

The 2011 BET Awards was held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA yesterday.

Kerry Washington: The actress wore an acid green Michael Kors column gown. I love the colour which is perfect for this red carpet on a sunny day. With that in mind I have to ask, “why black pumps?” Gold strappy sandals would’ve worked so much better to complement her Kotur clutch, belt, gold Lana jewelry and the halter ring detail. I will never understand her decision to opt for black pumps on this occasion.

Keri Hilson: Whilst Kerry opted for a summery look, Keri’s had a Fall feel to it. The singer wore a bicolour Tibi purple and black strapless jumpsuit with black open-toe sandals. She accessorized with gold sculptural Ann Taylor cuffs, a Judith Leiber ‘Ridged Rectangle’ leopard printed haircalf minaudière, a Carla Amorim ring and a gold necklace with a green pendant.

Alicia Keys: The singer opted for zebra print Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps to match her monochromatic Dolce & Gabbana look. Wilfredo Rosado fine jewelry and a fishtail plait completed her look.

Keke Palmer: I’m not quite sure how Mandalay continues to get away with ripping off other designers. Keke’s silver paneled dress is a total rip off from a Balmain Fall 2009 dress.

Kelly Rowland: The UK X Factor judge opted for a Notte by Marchesa fuchsia dress with a cascading ruffle detail which we’ve seen a few times on the red carpet. Her beautiful dress was paired with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Bisson’ heels.

Nicki Minaj: Of all looks at this event, Nicki was the one that made me itch the most. The singer wore a Mark Fast knit dress, with thick tights and black booties in that searing heat?
