Last night’s X Factor was all about love and heartbreak which was fitting when it came to some outfit choices – some I loved, some broke my heart.
Cheryl was definitely the best dressed judge last night with her red, one shoulder gown fitting in perfectly with the heartbreak and love theme. I adored the drama of it! I’m not sure about the chocker, it looked more like a cat collar than Cartier. Her hair as well just ages her – the curls were too tight, she would have suite younger, loser curls. I quite liked Nick’s suit – the Zoe Jordan-esque print made a normal black suit different and it was very much a Grimshaw outfit. He’s really impressed me this series with his outfit choices- very sartorial but showing his personal style.
Oh Rita, I know you want to be edgy but it just looked messy! The suit was ill-fitting and the cape was unnecessary, the texture looked a blanket. I think she strip it all back and show off the beautiful woman she is. However, her hair and make-up was my favourite of the judges. Another show, another suit for Simon. This Saturday he’s gone from grey which is a bad choice. He looks likes a middle aged man on his way home from work at the office, not a mega successful recording company owner. Oh Simon!
I loved the simplicity of Che’s black suit as it didn’t distract from his emotional performance. I liked the how minimal the outfit was but the the gold shinny shoes added a bit of glamour to the proceedings. Despite Rita dressing her like her mini-me, I really loved Louisa’s outfit. The cape draping detail at the back really worked well with the choir/smoke feel and her figure looked amazing! (And you know you’re a star when you can preform with no shoes on!)
This is based mainly on the hair style but 4th Impact were one of the worst dressed. The matching white suits with awkward length-ending crop tops look a little too Eurovision. Cheryl needs to start dressing them in separate outfits so their personality can come through. I absolutely love Lauren and her voice is definitely a contender for the winner’s title but please wardrobe department, put her in something other than a black body-con dress. Her Mariah Carey song presented the chance to wear a dramatic detailed dress or something short and gold like the diva herself.
