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?

The X Factor UK Judges Birmingham Auditions

It’s only day one of the X Factor UK Birmingham auditions and already the new judges are in locked in a bitter “style war.”

Last year it was Cheryl Cole vs. Dannii Minogue, this year it’s Kelly Rowland vs. Tulisa Contostavlos.

Both ladies have very different styles.

Despite the big hype both looked quite meh today.

Kelly tried waaaaay too hard wearing a neon yellow lace Twenty8Twelve cropped top with a black mini skirt and the appropriately named Lady ‘Daf’ Louboutin pumps

I was more pleasantly surprised by Tulisa who was more demure wearing a black DKNY jumpsuit with red sandals.

I’m sure as time goes on designers will start throwing clothes at these two.

Remember how Cheryl went from Alice + Olivia and Topshop to Atelier Versace and Stéphane Rolland? I can’t see that happening on this occasion, but you never know.

Runway To Katsuya – Kelly Rowland In BCBG Max Azria

Kelly Rowland and Brandy were spotted hand-in-hand as they left Katsuya restaurant in Hollywood last night.

The R&B singers looked in high spirits as they were followed by the paparazzi.

Brandy opted for a black and white look, whilst Kelly wore a BCBG Max Azria Fall 2010 strapless dress.

I love how she’s taken this Fall dress and turned it into a perfect summers evening dress.

I also like how she let the dress drape naturally rather than adding a belt as it was styled on the runway.

Black open-toe ankle boots and a gold bangles completes this fantastic look.

More From “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” London Premiere

Nikki Reed looked beautiful on the red carpet at yesterday’s “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” London Premiere.

She wore a salmon one-shouldered Alberta Ferretti wrap dress paired with silver Brian Atwood peep-toes.

Those “Twilight” actresses sure do love Brian Atwood’s pumps.

Kelly Rowland wore a shimmering Chapurin Fall 2010 dress with sheer black panels.

I couldn’t get excited about her dress, as her Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte heels are far more interesting.

This is the third time we’ve seen the singer wear these edgy heels.

My favourite on this red carpet was Holly Willoughby.

She had a lot more personality than everyone else and stood out on this snoozefest of a red carpet.

I love her sexy in her red strapless dress which she paired sexy Christian Louboutin Lady Claude leopard peep-toes and a black clutch.
