When it comes to making headlines in the music world, we can always rely on Jessie J. Yep, the US may have Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, but we've got our own beauty trendsetter who's racking up column inches. From the multi-coloured Cleopatra bob (blue, purple, black - we can't keep up!) to that sequin lip, Jessie J has made 2011 brighter and certainly more colourful.
So what have been the highlights? How could we forget her Union Jack lips for her appearance on Britain’s Got Talent?
Then there was that Diana Ross-inspired look she sported whilst rocking it on-stage at the Jingle Bell Ball earlier this month.
And remember the unexpectedly sophisticated Jessie we saw at the Women of the Year awards in June? Her hair was glossy and slick and rather than lime green eyeshadow or bright pink lipstick, her make-up was pared-down with little more than a slick of lipgloss, rosy cheeks and a flick of black eyeliner. WOW.
Earlier this year, we caught up with Jenny Longworth who works with the singer to create those amazing nails she wears and discovered a glitter manicure is Jessie's fave.
In the hair department, Jessie’s ability to be a chameleon never fails to excite us beauty girls. If she’s not trialling a dip dye, she’s customising her ponytail with vibrant streaks.
So where can our J-J go in 2012? A sequin eye a la Givenchy's Spring / Summer 2012 show, perhaps? Or maybe a bold 'Desperate Scousewives' brow like Kate Middleton? Whatever Jess and her team come up with, it’s sure to make beauty news - and we'll be watching.
