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?

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.
