In my opinion, there’s not been much to get excited about in this year’s X Factor (I’ve only really been interested in the girls category and now most of them are gone!) although I’ve found a new reason for watching the show – the weekly fashion battle between Nicole Scherzinger and Tulisa.
In previous years, the female judges have always been compared with each other, and the ITV bosses have tried to orchestrate a fashion face-off between the likes of Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue, or last year Kelly Rowland and Tulisa, but really there’s never been much of a contest – it’s always Cheryl who wins in the fashion stakes.
But this year, I think that the contest between the female judges is a much closer-run race and many of the press have spotted that this is the real reason that ladies throughout the country are tuning in on a saturday night and are featuring Nicole Vs Tulisa articles on their fashion pages.
People are picking their favourite outfits each week and tweeting or blogging their choice. You can even shop by your favourite judge’s style on websites such as Very.co.uk and ASOS.com. Although I’ve remained on the fence so far, I enjoy watching the fashionistas strutting out each week and am loving the diva poses they are throwing.
One thing’s for sure: Nicole and Tulisa are certainly championing the traditional Little Black Dress this year and this lace-and-sparkle look has filtered down to the high street in time for the Christmas party dress rush. Here’s my pick of the best X Factor dresses from OMG Fashion, Zara and Very.co.uk:
Let me know what you think – who is the best dressed X Factor judge and will you be wearing a little black dress this festive season?
