X Factor: Sunday Week 2 – Cheryl Cole In Versus

Looks like Cheryl Cole didn’t make me eat my words on tonights X Factor live results show.

The judge is still not budging when it comes to wearing colour, but at least her black Versus bustier dress was a considerably more interesting than the unflattering Azzaro jumpsuit she wore on Saturday’s show.

Her dress very much reminded me of the red Versus dress she wore during the X Factor auditions.

This is because her dress has same pleated flared skirt, so I couldn’t help having a de ja vu moment when she stepped out on stage.

Cheryl completed her look with the same Valentino bow-embellished satin sandals she wore on last weeks show.

Let’s pray one last time for colour next week.

Versus Spring 2011

The Versace Theatre had been turned into a playground for the Versus Spring 2011 presentation yesterday evening.

It had rustic swings, a roundabout, a slide, a climbing frame and the usual runway was replaced by grass. Real grass.

The sound of kids playing and laughing was heard in the background as we waited.

A school bell rang to signal the start of the show as the first model walked out.

We were first presented with a variety of tartan dresses. Then floral prints dresses, a mixture of both and stripes.

To close Christopher Kane and Donatella Versace presented colour block dresses.

We saw shorts, cardigans worn on shoulders, pleated skirts, pencil skirts and dresses with sexy cut-out details.

The accessories included satchels, strappy sandals and booties with cut-outs which all the same colourful prints as the dresses.

Favourites: Tartan mini dress and blue ensemble with a striped skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Leighton Meester

Fashion’s Night Out: The Show – Leighton Meester In Versus

More than 1,500 guests viewed the largest public fashion show in New York City’s history with “Fashion’s Night Out: The Show” at Lincoln Center last night.

The event was held as part of the run-up to Fashion’s Night Out on Friday, and New York Fashion Week which starts tomorrow.

Leighton Meester was one of the many celebrity guests who attended this event.

I was glad to see the “Gossip Girl” actress giving us edgy without any ridiculousness we’ve seen in the past.

Her Versus Fall 2010 blue bustier dress with cut-out details is super sexy, vibrant and fitting for this celebration of fashion.

She paired her dress with Christian Louboutin Venus Orlato 140 ankle boots and a jeweled clutch.

I’ve never been a fan of Leighton’s hair on the set of GG, so I’m really liking the rich colour and the volume for this occasion.

“Despicable Me” LA Premiere – Miranda Cosgrove In Versus

Miranda Cosgrove proves that she loves the Versus Fall 2010 collection.

Her first look was at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, the second at the “Despicable Me” LA Premiere this weekend.

When I look at this, it’s clear that her Versus Fall 2010 black pleated skirt and plum velvet top was deliberately picked as not to clash with the yellow red carpet.

Had she worn the red or blue dresses from this collection the contrast would’ve been too harsh.

So no grumblings from me about another black summer dress on this occasion.

This look is cute without being too sweet, and grown up without looking like Miley Cyrus.

Christian Louboutin Georgineta heels and Neil Lane jewels complete the look.

Runway To X Factor London Auditions – Cheryl Cole In Versus

The X Factor auditions came to London yesterday, and as always all eyes were on Cheryl Cole who was fresh from her romantic Tanzania vacation with her rumoured boyfriend Derek Hough.

The judge and pop princess looked adorable wearing a red Versus Versus pleated georgette dress which was presented by Christopher Kane during the Versus Fall 2010 with Donatella Versace.

Cheryl’s dress with straps details on the shoulders appears to be much lighter and more Spring-like as it doesn’t have the velvet panel.

As much as I love her dress, I’m also very much drooling over her Christian Louboutin Bikini 140 pony pumps.

As always I get giddy with excitement every time the X Factor comes around.

2010 MTV Movie Awards – Miranda Cosgrove In Versus

Best Mini Award
Whilst Christina Aguilera wore an impressive Atelier Versace dress to the 2010 MTV Movie Awards last night, Miranda Cosgrove opted for a look from its baby sister Versus.

The 17 year old actress wore a red Versus Fall 2010 dress which was as vibrant in colour, as it was interesting in style.

Her red v-neck dress with velvet panels maybe too much for some of you on a hot summers day in LA, but I think stars should try to do something different at MTV Awards ceremonies.

You can save florals for Premiere’s and Gala’s.
