X Factor Fash-Off: Kelly Rowland, Tulisa Contostavlos AND Florence Welch are all-white!

07 November 2011 by

And Kelly is BACK! Thank heavens that the Destiny's Child-er has recovered from that nasty bout of sickness, returning to our shores to provide the proceedings with a swish of glamarama. Yes, this can only mean one thing: the X Factor fash-off continues!

Well, Kelly truly was on fine form, sweeping through those slidey doors in a fuchsia strapless chiffon gown to match the poppy on her bodice. Nice work! You can tell from the elegant draping, thigh-high split and layers of ladylike chiffon that this one's from the master of femininity, Alberta Ferretti. K-Row (or should that be K-WOW?) polished off her look with tumbling curls and a ginormous diamond necklace by Asprey London.

But some watchers argued she was trying a tad too hard - 'Kelly looks like she's goin to prom,' Halima Hussein noted on Grazia UK's Facebook page. And we can see what she means, especially in comparison to Tulisa Contostavlos who was sticking to the typical Saturday night fare in a thigh-skimming mini-dress. Covered in sequins and with one sharp shoulder, this frock is exactly what we'd imagine Tu-Tu wearing for a night of club classics with the N-Dubz crew.

Onto Sunday night and Kelly was cracking out another floor-sweeper, this time of the John Galliano variety. And as if to prove that they really are in sync, Tulisa also chose a white number - frothy, short and clinched by a ribbon-like belt to match her strappy sandals. Is this the gals' way of waving the white flag of surrender, we wonder?

Florence Welch wears Roksanda Ilincic on the X Factor

Clearly black + white was the theme of the evening because forget the judges for a moment please - did you SEE Florence Welch dressed like a businesswoman-slash-angel? We swoon. This incredible jacket + dress + floaty chiffon creation comes courtesy of Grazia fave Roksanda Ilincic. ‘It was a great honour for me to be able to work with Florence once more and dress her for such a high profile, iconic appearance on British television,' the delighted London-based designer said. 'This bespoke art deco inspired dress was an incredible challenge; however I hope it added to the incredible spectacle that is always innate within her performance.’ We say YES!
