Catch the X Factor Style from the weekend

We’re now more than half way through X Factor and it’s safe to say that Cheryl Cole has officially adopted the sequinned dress trend.

On Saturday 14 November, Cheryl Cole wore an Alexander Wang Draped Sequin Mini Dress (£710, approx €798, Browns Fashion, pictured right) and looked stunning in midnight blue. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for her pulled back high ponytail hairstyle.

For a similar, but not quite draped Wang look, go to New Look for a navy sequin prom dress or (£35, €39), or Betsey Johnson for a shift styled version (€80 on Asos).

Alexander Wang (no relation to Vera), is THE designer success story of 2009. Since he launched his first women’s wear collection in 2007, I now look forward to his show every year at New York fashion Week (who am I kidding?.. well, the re-runs of the show on, I’ve never been invited to the live show!). Renowned for his edgy, sometimes masculine style, I was surprised at this dress being so girly and Cheryl Cole suited. More on Mr. Wang later this month…

Cheryl was her ever adventurous self on Sunday night, 15 November, supporting young British designers again during the X Factor by wearing a Richard Nicholl, white and gold corset dress. If this is on your Must Have list, Net-a-porter will sort you out at a whopping €1500. Otherwise, see Asos for a similar, non designer style (Forever Unique Gold Contrast Detail Strapless Dress ,€86).

Stacey Solomen X Factor 14 November

On to the contestants.  Alas, with only one female contestant left in the competition, Stacey was styled in a caramel coloured ball gown on Saturday. The dress, a custom design by Suzanne Neville, wouldn’t be the best outfit to date that I’ve seen on the lovely Miss Solomen, but I did love the concept that she wore €100,000 worth of borrowed bling! You can do the same from a nifty site called – it says what it does on the tin.

You Are Not Alone Song

However, on Sunday 15 November, I did think that Solomen was a vision of white in a French Connection dress, which I haven’t seen in the shops yet.

For the same performance on Sunday, it was great to see Lucie Jones back performing in a Kate Moss for Topshop white dress.

X Factor Male contestants 15 November

The male contestants were predominantly designer clad on Saturday night, with Jamie Afro wearing a smart Lanvin blazer, Danyl Johnson in a Balenciaga shirt to Olly Murs wearing Gucci trousers! I’m so sad to see Jamie go, he is such a likeable fellow!

    Hi Anne Marie

    I was wondering if you could help in an x factor related dress. Holly willougby was wearing a gorgeous white dress with lace top it was fitted at the waist and straight pencil style skirt on the xtra factor this week. Do you have any ideas where it comes from.

  7. Annemarie Says:

    M, it was a gorgeous dress indeed and Holly Willoughby wore the same dress in black on the Xtra factor the week before. Im gutted to say I cant find it though,have searched high and low :( I had a request about the black one too (with lace detail on top). Its just gorgeous on her.

  23. Pamela1204 Says:

    Hi , Wondering if anyone knows where holly got her dress from last sun 22nd Nov. It was a lovely royal blue ? I WANT ONE

    The Suzanne Neville dress is a custom design, as we’ve seen in the past on X Factor. You can check with local stockists though too, heres a list

  25. Annemarie Says:

    Jess, Staceys dress for the group song on Sunday 22 November is a custom dress by Maggie Cooke Design Construct. Contact details here: Tel UK 07946 473369 2b, Bassein Park Rd, London, W12 9RY

  26. Annemarie Says:

    Pamela, I loved that blue on Holly but dont know where its from. There’s one on called Petite cobalt blue bow front shift dress , but its sleeveless whereas Hollys had short sleeves.

  27. Julia Says:

    Where did Holly get the blue dress she wore for the Xtra Factor Results show on 22nd Nov?

    BTW – I think you should also go through what Holly wears every week as she is always so stylish.

  28. Liz Says:

    I’m desperate to know where Holly got her beautiful blue dress she wore on the 22nd, it would be perfect for my Christmas party! Does anybody have an idea?

  29. Annemarie Says:

    I hear you Liz, it’s really hard to find Holly’s dresses, I Love them all! This one from debenhams is similar but lacks the sleeves of Hollys, its chiffon with satin trim.

  30. sharon aidoo Says:

    Where can I find Danyl Johnson’s brown leather jacket that he wore on Saturday night’s show (21st Novmember)????

    Thank you!! I had a feeling it was a Diesel number..

  33. Free PS3 Says:

    Cheers for the great article – I enjoyed reading it! I always love browsing your blog. :)

  34. gaz Says:

    Do you know where lloyds shirt was from, the beige coloured one, on sat 28th nov show?

  35. Annemarie Says:

    Gaz, I finally found Lloyds beige Shirt from 28 November – it’s Caroline Massey at Topman.

  36. Lorraine Says:


  37. Annemarie Says:

    Hi Lorraine, I know the one you mean, it was Hollys dress on Xtra Factor on Saturday 28 November. Unfortunately, what she wore is really hard to find out! Ive trawled all the shops and cant see it, so it must be from last summer. Found thhis one in Aftershock, similar but not quite right as doesnt have the same neckline :(

  38. Claire Kenneford Says:

    Does anybody know where Stacey got her floor length pink dress from that she wore this weekend (28th/29th Nov) I really want them for bridesmaids dresses at my wedding!!

  39. Annemarie Says:

    Hi Claire, Staceys floor length pink or coral coloured dress is by Issa. This Brazialian dress label is sold on Netaporter and Matches fashion, but this dress isn’t online which leads me to believe that it’s next summers collection which is not for sale yet. You can buy a very similar version online on ASOS (£55, €68 approx) and it also comes in green or black, see See all of week 8 x factor style in more detail on

  40. Cally Says:

    Can anyone tell me where Lloyds jeans he wore on 14th Nov were from? It says above they’re diesel jeans (they look leather). I’ve searched everywhere but can’t find the same pair.

  41. Annemarie Says:

    Hi Cally, Yes they are by Diesel, and are leather looking wax effect jeans. I found them online on Yoox but only in limited sizes left Good luck!

  42. jody Says:

    Hi Can any one tell me where holly may
    have got her dress from what she was wearing sunday on 5th Dec
    the spotty number

    thanks x

  43. Annemarie Says:

    Jody, as always, Holly’s dresses are impossible to find out, would love to know the secret source. But I’ve found one very similar to the one Holly wore on the xtra factor on sunday 6 december, on John Lewis . It’s got smaller spots and a vneck, whereas Holly’s dress has a scoop neck and larger spots. If you like polka dots you might like to read our Polka Dots article here

  44. Rebecca Says:

    Does anyone know where Holly got that fab dress she wore on Saturday 12th. It was peachy/nude with some jewels at the front it was stunning?

    Thanks R

  45. Annemarie Says:

    Rebecca, Have trawled the shops online for Hollys dress but cant find it. Found a similar one with different neckline and no jewels on Edressme, where Holly’s bought some of her Xtra factor dresses before. Heres the link Also, there’s ashort version, again jewel -less, in Topshop

  46. Melissa Says:

    i want the one from the final xtra factor.. long black maxi dress with golddisk broach??
    Any ideaas where its from?

  47. Annemarie Says:

    Melissa, I cant find it :( Found a similar one to the one Holly wore on the final (Xtra factor), but without the gold broach in House of Fraser

  48. Cally Says:

    Thanks Annemarie, will be looking to get a pair in the New Year :)

  49. Annemarie Says:

    You’re welcome. What a fab New Years present for yourself!
