Style winner on X Factor
When it comes to X Factor the biggest loser is style or stage costume. Somehow all semblance of a look goes out of the window. My sport on a Saturday night is just as much about shrieking at the TV and the contestants outfits as it is with agreeing with mainly everything Simon Cowell says (I am slightly worried by this does it mean I'm good or getting long in the tooth!)
And when Simon Cowell comments on how badly dressed someone is, you know it must be bad as this man doesn't have a fashion bone in his body, he doesn't care. Yet in his three X Factor contenders we have the first ever naturally stylish person ever to have been on the X Factor in Jamie Archer (pictured above, image courtesy of Daily Mirror). The likely lad in Olly Murs with his easy modern modish look beloved of the Essex hinterlands. Even Danyl Johnson had been polished into a non descriptive but effortless smart look much improved on his dreadful shorts and dare I say Fat Face default style due to not having a clue. All three exude confidence and polish with Jamie finally making an X Factor finalist a cool creature not a naff wannabe.
So what of poor Stacey Solomon who was possibly put in the worst dress and make up ever. As a stylist I know women have one breast bigger than the other but on Saturday night the whole of the viewing public would have noticed Stacey's larger right breast a bit lopsided in dodgy prom style dress. The girl is a complete dear and without any pretensions so she wouldn't dream of complaining... so on her behalf please get her styling right she needs to wear a good supportive bra. Her garments need to fit and sheath style is far better for her frame than a New Look cut in any length.
