So we saw five-member boy band Nu Vibe be eliminated from the X Factor show this weekend, but that is not the only thing which has caught the headlines. Just like last year with Cheryl Cole and Dani Minogue, the battle of the dresses swings into motion from the first live show. Even with two brand new X Factor judges, this year has been no different. The fight for the best frock between Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland has commenced!
With this dress off each week it means that Fashion PR’s everywhere are pushing for their brands to be worn by one of the girls. In week one a Herve Leger was worn by Tulisa, whilst Kelly opted for Atelier Versace and Robert Cavalli. This weekend Kelly was seen in Todd Lynn and Julien McDonald. Over the course of the four live X Factor shows, five designer labels gained exceptional publicity as the girls looked stunning in the frocks.
It is noticeable that Ms Rowland likes her designer labels, however, Tulisa has said, “I loved experimenting with labels like Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen during the auditions but I’m a high street girl at .” Ms Contostavlos has proven to be a massive hit with the nation and it’s great to know that she loves our high street shops too ladies, being a huge fan of River Island and Lipsy. Both women are perfect advocates to be seen in designer or high street brands, so Fashion PRs should be snapping up this massive opportunity for the next ten weeks to really showcase their pieces.
We ladies will have our own opinion on who was best dressed on the live shows we have already seen, however this weekend both girls stirred up controversy in their choice of frocks. The show was supposed to be toning down things after Rhianna and Christina Aguilera’s choice of outfits for their performances last year. However on Sunday night’s show, despite Ofcom ruling that provocative clothing was inappropriate for the X Factor’s family viewers, both female judges were seen revealing plenty of cleavage and both ensembles were seen to be extremely risqué. If there is a repeat occurrence of such dresses, then it could cause more negative publicity for the show.
It’s simple really; yes they are both very attractive young women, so they should flaunt what they have got. But, they have to remember the viewers of the show, so should be minimalistic and subtle. If dressed correctly and each create a unique and individual style, they themselves could become a brand.
Four shows and eight different dresses so far, which girl will win the heart of the public?
