X Factor Fashion – Halloween shockers

Well, there was no Kelly, owing to a cold of Transatlantic proportions, so we got former X Factor winner Alexandra Burke to keep the seat warm. But the looks on display bordered on fright night proportions, with only one outfit really winning the Fashion-Mommy seal of approval. Here are a rundown of  this weeks looks from the judges table.

Tulisa as Catwoman

Tulisa channelled the spirit of Catwoman and Emma  Peel in her form-fitting Catsuit. She looked great, and her figure is amazing, but this was more a costume than an outfit for the most high-profile role in British telly. The catsuit was by Jitrois and definitely left the male audience panting for more, but unless you are going to a fancy dress party as  Marianne Faithfull circa ‘Girl on a motorcycle’, I’d give this a miss.

Alexandra opts for a Cabaret look…(but don’t mention Cabaret…OK.COM)

If Tulisa had  opted for fancy dress, then Alexandra Burke was opting for a more sophisticated look. She wore a black  and white sequin dress that  had me thinking Las Vegas Showgirl, and I hated that she had teamed it with such clumpy boots. Another fail for me.

Tulisa’s frocky horror

Sunday saw the Tulisa dress up weekend continue, or at least I think she was dressing up. She wore a full length maxi dress that was dark and dramatic in  shades of grey. It reminded me of the sort of gowns worn by witches in pantomimes, and was a strange look that seemed to stun all the social networking sites.Comparisons to Morticia Adams abounded, with others asking if she was taking the Halloween theme just a tad too seriously…

Alexandra in Jonathan Saunders…finally..Hurrah!

Finally,there was a dress that I could really admire. Alexandra wore a knockout Jonathan Saunders green and black shift style dress that I adored! With a gorgeous bird print and eye-catching diamond print, this dress was a dream. It took two episodes and three not so good outfits before we finally hit the jackpot.
