We’re only one week from the X Factor final but there’s always time to fit one more scandal in. This time it’s everyone collectively ranting about Simon Cowell’s change to the show’s semi-final voting format last weekend, which meant curtains for poor Mary.
Mary was clearly a lovely woman and had a great voice, but I’m definitely team Cher and I’m glad she’s in the final.
The contestants were upping the ante with their jewellery choices this weekend, each tapping the brands we’ve seen them go to time and again during the series. Rebecca Ferguson was dripping in diamonds from David Morris and wearing earrings from Boodles for her second song on Saturday night, while Mary wowed for the last time with jewellery from Butler & Wilson.
Of course with the final looming we’re running out of time to enjoy (and judge) the annual fash-off between Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue - so here goes.
I think Dannii reclaimed her X Factor style crown on Saturday night’s show, wearing an Aurelio Costarello corsage dress, which she again teamed with beautiful earrings from Annoushka. Meanwhile Cheryl still sparkled in an origami-style design from Stéphane Rolland, with earrings from David Morris and Garrard’s Regal Cocktail Ring in 18ct yellow gold and set with an on-trend pink tourmaline and white diamonds.
On Sunday’s nail-biting results show I think Cheryl managed to prize said crown from Minogue’s clutches, stepping out looking amazing in a black Zuhair Murad mini/maxi dress and yet more jewellery from Garrard, including the Orrery Drop Earrings and Coctail Ring, both made in yellow gold and set with diamonds. Fashionista Dannii put up a good fight and still looked stunning in a 50s inspired strapless black lace Jasper Conran dress with diamond earrings.
So who are you hoping wins the X Factor crown on this weekend’s show? Personally I’m hoping it’s not Matt. Controversial? Judging by previous series, Dannii and Cheryl always save the best until last so I can’t wait to see what they’re wearing this weekend. Enjoy the final as after that we’ll all have to start doing that thing called socialising again….
See you next week!
