While we’re still every bit as captivated by all the Cannes action, we’re giving some attention to Blighty this afternoon, as it was the first day of our X Factor auditions yesterday – and we think that’s something to get exited about!
Tulisa Contostavlos, last year’s winning mentor, is back – and we’re a little bit in love with her sartorial choice for the big day. She was voted FHM‘s sexiest woman in the world, after all, but it goes beyond sexiness for us.We love how the judge added a studded, chunky waist-defining belt to the floral dress, which instantly gives an otherwise girly look a feisty rock n roll edge. Karl Lagerfeld would be proud… and if you saw our ‘Midweek Moodboard’ yesterday, you’d understand why we are too!
Geri Halliwell (is she a guest judge? Is she sticking around for the whole show? Who actually knows?!) also made a huge effort, but more with her antics rather than her outfit. (We saw pics of her clambering out of a car window and onto the roof… ‘nuff said!) The lady formerly known as Ginger Spice wore a very short, lace mini dress with cut out detailing at the back; while it isn’t the most age-appropriate of dresses, there’s no denying that her figure is still perfect for it. Loving the hair too!
Bring on X Factor 2012!
