X Factor Live Show Week 3

The big band theme on Saturday 24 October inspired some serious Hollywood glamour amongst contestants and judges alike.

The most wow outfit, in our opinion, went to Cheryl Cole, who on Saturday night wore yet another Atelier Versace Spring 2009 dress. Cole ditched the short Atelier Versace minis from the previous two weeks, for a white, floor length gown which we thought was utterly divine. It was the same designer and dress that Penelope Cruz wore to the Vanity Fair Oscars after party in February.

Cheryl’s hair was like that of a 40’s Hollywood siren, accessorising with a modified bridal headband by Jenny Packham.

On Sunday night Cheryl upped the fashion ante in a Julian Macdonald silver scale mermaid-like dress (pictured) from his spring summer 2010 collection. Cheryl Cole is certainly a fan of Macdonald, as last week during her own live performance, her see-through body was by the very same designer.

Lucie Jones

Bridal designer wear were also a popular choice on Saturday, as both Lucie and Stacey wore customised dresses by Suzanne Neville. This designer won Best British bridal Designer 2009 and also dressed Miss Frank in chic suits on the night.

For Sunday’s group song, Lucie swapped designer for high street in a Lipsy futuristic prom dress, £60, €67 (pictured).

Stacey Solomen

We are loving the monochrome houndstooth trend which appeared on Sunday night on the ever talkative Stacey.

This French Connection sequin Dazzi dress comes in black and white or fuschia and white (pictured,£180, €200).

  1. Rebecca Says:

    where did stacey solomon get her floor length sparkly gown for her performance?

  2. aoifs Says:

    A lot of high St brands featured this week which is good to see. Topman is a popular one on the guys!

    I can’t make up my mind on the mermaid dress on Cheryl – tacky? It was definitely a show stopper and I think she just about pulled it off.

  3. Annemarie Says:

    Heh Rebecca, Stacey’s sparkly ball gown is by British Bridal designer Suzanne Neville

  4. orla Says:

    I *heart* Cheryl Cole. She always looks immaculate and seems to have grown into her style of late. A million miles from her disasterous pink ruffly shirt that she wore to her first audition for Popstars.

  5. hayley Says:

    do you know anyone who stocks manesh arora ive looked everywhere

  6. Annemarie Says:

    Try http://www.manisharora.ws/manish.html for a list of stockists worldwide. This guy is known as the John Galliano of India and has shown collections at London Fashion Week for the past 4 years, wow!

  7. Delighted Says:

    Very Well written, now its time to go shopping! thanks

  8. Sara Says:

    Just spotted Cheryl’s dress, well a close looking version, in the window of Julien, Stephens Green, Dublin for €350! It has a gold detail on the waist and on one shoulder but looks amaaaaaazing

  9. Shannon Says:

    Where did Jedward get their hightops from on Week 2 – green/black and red/balck?

  10. Annemarie Says:

    Shannon, After a lot of research, I found their footwear from week 3 were: Pink and black trainers – Supra. Green and black trainers – Adidas

  11. Janet Says:

    Hi there could you tell me where cheryl’s hair band/slice is from week 3 big band night is gorg

  12. Annemarie Says:

    Janet, Cheryl´s hairband is by Bristish bridal designer Jenny Packham. Pennys/primark had a smaller version recently which was more pearl than sparkly but I fear that its no longer in stock.

  13. Amber Says:

    I found a bridal accessories website that sells Cheryl’s headpiece, it’s called Acacia II by Jenny Packham, £350 though!! I loved it, but perhaps it was a bit OTT for the show? The dress was stunning 😀

  14. laura jaye Says:

  15. Annemarie Says:

  16. imelda Says:

    does anyone know where staceys black n gold sequined dress from last nights performance 28th nov is from?!


  17. Annemarie Says:

    Hi Imelda, Staceys dress on X Factor 28 November is by Diane Von Furstenberg. It’s called Persal embellished velvet dress and is available online on Net-A-Porter.

  18. Sunenah Says:

    hi. could anyone tell me where i could find the floor-length peachy/pinky dress stacey was wearing for her second song, last night on the 28th November? that would be really great. thank you.

  19. Danielle Says:

    Does anyone know where her second dress on 28 nov was from? The pink strapless maxi dressthanks

  20. Jackie Says:

    Can anyone tell me where Stacey got the short off the shoulder black pleated dress she wears on the opening shot of each show where the contestants start off in silhouette?

  21. Annemarie Says:

    Jackie, Danielle and Sunenah, Stacey’s coral or pink coloured maxi dress on X Factor 28 November is actually by Issa. This designer is normally on Net-a-porter or Matches fashion but this dress is not online which leads me to believe its for the new season, SS 2010. Luckily, theres a similar dress on ASOS though http://short.ie/3wecxf
