Apart from Dannii Mingoue the only shining light from this series of the X Factor has been Rebecca Ferguson.
She floored me with a beautiful rendition of Corinne Bailey Rae’s ‘Like A Star’.
Not only by her voice, but also by her breath-taking Luisa Beccaria Fall 2010 gown.
The mother of two from Liverpool has worn a few gowns during this series, most of which have overwhelmed her, but on this occasion she hit the right note.
It was dramatic without being over the top and the colour was gorgeous against her caramel skin-tone.
I was totally baffled by pairing of Rebecca Ferguson and Christina Aguilera. Clearly it was a case of who was in town, rather than finding someone to complement Rebecca’s voice.
Rebecca was class personified in her Richard Sorger Spring 2009 dress as she started singing ‘Beautiful’.
I loved the bejeweled neckline on her nude silk dress.
Christina looked like she was on a 10 minute break from working the poll at Peter Stringfellows. It was an awful match up and Christina totally dominated the song and didn’t allow Rebecca to shine during the duet.
As Rebecca walked onto the stage with her mentor prior to the results being read out, Rebecca looked gorgeous wearing a William Tempest Fall 2010 dress.
Her dress with a silver metallic bodice and cream skirt with a peplum at the waist, shows Rebecca has a very diverse style which doesn’t seem forced or manufactured.
I hope she wins so we can see more of her in the future.
For a Saturday night X Factor final Cheryl opted for a soft grecian look.
Her cream asymmetrical one shoulder Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 gown was decorated in silver embellishments across the bodice.
The gown was stunning, but I just couldn’t get on board with the ‘just got out of the shower’ hair.
Rebecca outshone her mentor last night.
