Nicole Scherzinger talks Lewis Hamilton, leaving X Factor, and her plans for the future in InStyle UK October

Last Updated on 1st September 2014 We might have missed her face and hilarious one-liners on The X Factor at the weekend, but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten all about Nicole Scherzinger. And to prove it, she is covering the InStyle UK October issue – showing the world that she is here to stay! The former Pussycat Doll turned solo artist turned X Factor judge was shot by Maxine Eggenberger for the cover and accompanying editorial images, and certainly doesn’t hold back during the interview either. An all-round great issue that you won’t want to miss! She told the mag about her on again off again relationship with Formula One pro Lewis Hamilton – and how it’s very much on again – as well as the real reason she left the X Factor, and her plans for the future. Hint: she’ll be singing, dancing and acting! (Spoiler alert: it’s Broadway! Squeal!) You’ll have to buy or download the InStyle UK October issue to see more pics and read the full interview!

Does Robert Pattinson’s sister have the X Factor?

Last Updated on 31st July 2014 As well as drooling over Cheryl Cole/Fernandez Versini’s wardrobe and checking out her on screen chemistry with Simon Cowell and the rest of the judges on the panel, we have yet another reason to watch and get excited about this year’s X Factor. And that’s thanks to Robert Pattinson and his (hopefully) super-talented sister Lizzie. “She blew them away with her husky, soulful vocals,” a ‘source’ reportedly told The Mirror. “She’s different to usual X Factor contestants – she really stands out. She could go all the way.” How exciting! R-Pattz fans will already know that when he isn’t pretending to be a vampire in the Twilight films, he is partial to a bit of a singsong with his guitar, so it’s safe to say that the musical talent runs in the family. We hope she makes it to the live finals so we can see his pretty face in the audience every week! Watch this space!

Cheryl Cole is cute in white for first day of X Factor auditions

Last Updated on 17th June 2014 The X Factor is back – and so is Cheryl Cole! Cheryl is back on the X Factor judging panel with on/off pal Simon Cowell, Scary Spice Mel B, and of course, Louis Walsh. It just wouldn’t be the X Factor without him, would it? No big hair and floor-length trousers this time round, as Cheryl looked cute, chic and sexy all rolled into one for the first day of auditions in Manchester. That’s the Cheryl we know and love! Our favourite little Geordie Princess wore a cute pleated white mini skirt, which she teamed with a slouchy white tee and to-die-for metallic blue strappy heels. She’s got that casual chic look nailed! We know this is going to be just one of many posts about Cheryl Cole’s X Factor style as we have great expectations for her X Factor wardrobe.

Cheryl Cole debuts new look for X Factor press conference

Last Updated on 13th March 2014 When we saw Cheryl Cole rock a stunning Roberto Cavalli dress at the designer’s autumn/winter 2014 show during Milan Fashion Week last month, we made no secret of the fact that we wanted to see more of her! And, now that it’s been announced that she is returning to the X Factor judging panel, it looks like we got exactly what we wished for! Our pint sized Geordie Princess looked incredible at the X Factor press conference at the swanky Arts Club in Mayfair yesterday (So swanky that Beyonce was spotted in there last week; just sayin’.) She wore a sexy black Lela Rose pre-fall 2013 dress for the occasion, and even debuted a fab new hairstyle at the same time, too. It was longer and blonder than ever, and we have to say that we have once again fallen under Cheryl’s spell. Are you glad to see her return to the X Factor? Do you love her new look?

It’s official: Cheryl Cole returns to the X Factor

Last Updated on 11th March 2014 Yep, you read right, Cheryl Cole is returning to the X Factor! Looks like there’s no longer any bad blood between our Geordie Princess and Simon Cowell, who sensationally fired her from the American version of the show all those years ago, as Cheryl is getting a whopping £1.5 million (more than any other judge, except for Simon himself, natch!) to sit on the judging panel. ”I’m very happy and excited to be returning to The X Factor,” Cheryl said in an official statement. “I’m inspired and ready to find new talent and potential pop stars. It’s going to be a fun series.” Aah, we cannot wait! Will Simon be a lot more sensitive to Cheryl and the X Factor hopefuls now that he has become a dad? We guess we’ll just have to wait and see! Are you glad to see Cheryl back or should Nicole Scherzinger have stayed on for a third year? Let us know your thoughts! [Daily Mail] [Image]

Get Tamera Foster’s sequin X Factor look

Last Updated on 4th November 2013 She may have been in the bottom two of the X Factor last night, but rewind to last week and she was all we could talk about in the My Fashion Life office. As much as we loved her powerful rendition of Beyonce’s Listen, it was her sequin dress that got most of our attention. We pretty much accepted that we could never get our hands on anything so sparkly and fabulous… until we learnt that it came from none other than River Island and we too could slip into the sequined delight with just a little over £100. It will only set you back £125, and will answer all your Christmas party ensemble prayers. You’ll be the belle of the ball! Black sequin embellished maxi dress, £125, available at River Island    [Image]

Ellie Goulding “doesn’t care” what you thought of her Julien Macdonald X Factor dress

Last Updated on 18th October 2013 Almost a week after she first debuted it on the X Factor stage, the world is still talking about the barely-there dress Ellie Goulding wore to perform in on Sunday night. We loved the sparkly slashed Julien Macdonald number, and thought it was just right for the stage, but not everyone agreed. The dress received a lot of backlash on social media, but Ellie Goulding wants everyone to know that she doesn’t care. She felt special in it, and that’s all that matters to her. “My stylist finds me the most amazing things,” she began. “There was a choice of dresses and I just felt the best in that one. “I felt so special and I don’t care what anyone says. I wanted to take it up a level.” We don’t think the 26-year-old singer sounds too upset about all the negative Twitter feedback, do you? If everyone had her confidence and attitude, the world would be a far better place! [Telegraph]

Ellie Goulding and Nicole Scherzinger prove Julien Macdonald has the X Factor!

Last Updated on 14th October 2013 Despite getting his sparkle on as a contestant on its rival TV show Strictly Come Dancing, Julien MacDonald definitely had the X Factor at the weekend! Not only did judging goddess Nicole Scherzinger step out in a white fringed dress for Saturday’s live show, but the gorgeous Miss Ellie Goulding also chose one of his shimmering, glittering creations for her performance of Burn on Sunday night’s results show. Ellie’s dress definitely got a lot of attention on good old social networking platform Twitter, but not everyone was as blown away by her sartorial choice as we were. Although we agree that its raciness and sexiness might not be for everyone – and appropriate for all occasions – we certainly think Ellie Goulding pulled it off during her performance. It was the perfect attire to kick off the first results show of the series – plus with a flawless figure like hers, why shouldn’t she dare to bare, eh?! Did you like Ellie Goulding’s sexy dress or do you think it was a bit too much? (Or too little, as it were!)

Nicole Scherzinger stuns in Three Floor jumpsuit at X Factor launch

Last Updated on 30th August 2013 Has it really been a year already? The X Factor will return to our screens tomorrow, and our eyes will be glued to the TV as we scope out the new singing talent, and of course, check out what the female judges are wearing. Nicole Scherzinger had so many style hits last season, so we’re mega exited to see what she will be rocking in the auditions and live stages of the show. And if what she wore to the launch at The Mayfair Hotel yesterday was anything to go by, we think were going to be in for a real treat. Nicole looked phenomenal in a fierce strapless jumpsuit from Three Floor – look at her working it on the red carpet! She accessorised with red hot pumps and contrasting bright yellow nail polish and had her enviably glossy raven locks swooping effortlessly over one shoulder. Flawless is an understatement! Will you be tuning into the new season of The X Factor?

Tulisa out, Sharon Osbourne in at X Factor UK

Last Updated on 22nd April 2013 We guess we can wave goodbye to those Nicole Scherzinger v Tulisa Contostavlos style wars we had during last years X Factor, then. Nicole seemed to win most of them anyway, so maybe it’s for the best. Yep, apparently the rumours are true, Tulisa will no longer be a judge on our favourite ITV musical talent show, and she is due to be replaced by former X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne. How do you all feel about this? “Sharon will be an X Factor judge and it is only a matter of days before the deal is finalised,” a source reportedly said. “She is being paid a hefty sum of £2 million as Cowell is desperate to have her on the show. “She is also expecting to earn half a million more in book and publishing deals. There is no way she would turn down such a well-paid job.” We hope daughter Kelly – who has turned into quite the style maven these past few years – will help her mother rock a killer wardrobe and give Nicole a run for her money. We’re excited; are you? [Mirror]

Kelly Brook brings the sex factor to Celebrity Juice

Last Updated on 30th May 2019 Kelly Brook, you sexy mumma! (Well not literally but we have every faith that if and when Kel decides to multiply, she will be one of those yummy mummies of which we regularly speak.) The genetically blessed curvy model and presenter looked rather flawless as she headed to the Riverside Studios to film the latest episode of Celebrity Juice, where she is acting as team captain while Fearne Cotton is away on maternity leave. The jewelled detailing on the, ahem, bust area draws attention to her enviable assets the classy way, while her stunning red accessories bring extra sex factor to Kelly’s look. Not that she needs any additional tricks to look sexy, mind. Are you rating this look as much as we are?

Get Ella Henderson’s metallic X Factor tour look

Last Updated on 5th February 2013 We see a hint of sunshine creeping through our window this afternoon, which is why we’re in the mood for something jazzy and funky. X Factor contestant Ella Henderson always provided us with shiny, fashion-forward ensembles during her time on the show, and that hasn’t stopped now she’s on tour either. We’re particularly fond her bold, metallic, look above, and would quite like to recreate it for ourselves. We love it because the colours contrast perfectly with each other, they’re bold and attention-grabbing, but can easily be translated from stage to pavement (or night club, heck even office if that’s how you roll!) with ease. All the exact pieces Ella wore are still available, so snap them up now to avoid disappointment. Disco leopard flare skirt, £38, French Connection available at John Lewis Embellished top with scalloped hem, £65, available at ASOS Studding shoe boots, £19.99, New Look available at ASOS [Image]

X Factor’s Lucie Jones launches lingerie collection

Last Updated on 30th January 2013 Remember Lucie Jones from the X Factor way back in 2009? Don’t feel too bad if you don’t as we needed some help too – good old YouTube – but it’s okay because she’s launched her own range of lingerie now which should hopefully get people talking about her all over again. The 21-year-old Welsh singer-turned-(sort of)-designer has created her very own Loved by Lucie lingerie collection, which reportedly consists of fun, feminine, cute, and comfortable pieces. “I wasn’t going for outright sexy – I wanted something fun and feminine,” she said. “It’s for real women who like to wear cute but comfortable underwear. The pieces feature gorgeous lace trims and lovely floral prints, and they’re flattering. You’re not going to bulge over the sides of the knickers for example.” If you like your girlie florals and pretty patterns, we think it’s worth checking this collection out!

Kate Moss turns X Factor stylist?

Last Updated on 8th November 2022 We all know that the contestants’ wardrobes are just as an important part of the  X Factor as the singing. Therefore it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that Simon Cowell and the team are pulling out all the stops to ensure the 10-year anniversary series this year will be something special. And there’s no one better than ultimate British supermodel Kate Moss to guarantee that, is there? Instead of parading up and down a makeshift catwalk on the show though, Mossy will reportedly be getting involved behind the scenes, as she will act as stylist to the contestants for one very special Britpop week of the live shows. Sounds pretty cool! “The one-off special is about the show being more than just music,” a source reportedly told Grazia. “He wants Kate talking about her memories, outfits she wore in the 90s and dressing some of the contestants. Kate is definitely up for the challenge. “Simon is absolutely desperate to breathe life back into X Factor. He knows he has to change everything from the judges to the sets to the contestants themselves, but he also wants each show to contain something never seen or done before, something he calls: ‘Blow your pants off moments.’” We hope Kate doesn’t interpret that too literally when she’s styling the contestants. We are giddy with excitement at the thought of Kate Moss being let loose in wardrobe. Are you looking forward to it?

Nicole Scherzinger blows us away with Julien Macdonald and Zuhair Murad X Factor dresses

Last Updated on 10th December 2012 Once again, Nicole Scherzinger left our jaws floor-bound during the two-day X Factor final at the weekend. We’ve pretty much lusted after every single item the American judge has worn on the show these past few months, but we definitely think she saved the best outfits til last. Nicole opened Saturday’s show in a sensational striking red Jessica Rabbit style floor-length dress by Zuhair Murad, leaving us lost for words (a rare occurrence, we must admit) until we composed ourselves during the ad break. We cannot fault her hair, make-up and subtle jewellery either! And as if one glitzy gorgeous dress wasn’t enough to satisfy our sartorial senses, Nicole took inspiration from former X Factor judge – and current nation’s sweetheart – Cheryl Cole, by donning a dress not hugely dissimilar to one she had previously worn on the show a few years ago. Beady-eyed viewers and fashionistas would recognise that the silver sequin creation Nicole rocked for her powerful and moving duet with finalist Jahmene Douglas was in fact by none other than Julien Macdonald. Minds once again blown! Which dress do you prefer? [poll id=”382″] [Image 1] [Image 2]

Khloe Kardashian gets it right at the X Factor viewing party

Last Updated on 7th December 2012 We don’t think Khloe Kardashian‘s style is appreciated enough, but that’s all about to change this morning! The youngest of the original Kardashian girls has provided us with some great looks during her time as X Factor USA host (she’s the Stateside version of Dermot O’Leary, basically – and is doing a cracking job if you ask us!) and this particular outfit that she wore to the viewing party has been one of our favourites. It just goes to show that you can still outshine everyone on the red carpet without donning the most elaborate of dresses or getting the puppies out. Britney Spears and Demi Lovato were definitely in the shade in comparison on this occasion! The blouse adds some vital print and colour to the outfit, while the skirt gives Khloe a lovely shape while showing off those long, bronzed stems. The soft waves in her hair are also a perfect addition to the look. We know that Khloe has been blessed in the curves and cleavage department, but we like how this outfit still shows off her enviable figure without putting all the goods on display. Way to go, Khlo!

Get Nicole Scherzinger’s elegant white X Factor look

Last Updated on 3rd December 2012 Even though Nicole Scherzinger looked sublime in a black one-shouldered floor-length dress on last night’s X Factor results show, it’s last week’s white creation that everyone is still talking about. It’s hard to believe Scherzy’s dress was made by high-street-fave Topshop, but it was… and best of all, it’s definitely going to be released next year! Yep you can get your hands on Nicole’s exact dress at the end of February next year, in exchange for £195. Now that’s all very well and good, but it doesn’t help those of us who want to channel Nicole and wear a long white dress to those Christmas parties that are fast approaching, which is why we’ve decided to hunt for some alternatives. There’s an overwhelming selection of gorgeous white floor-length dresses out there, but two of our favourites came from BCBG Max Azria and Anoushka G – and you’ll be pleased to know they won’t cost an arm and a leg either! If you liked the capped sleeve detailing and sparkle in Nicole’s dress, the Anoushka version would be perfect for you! The fact that it’s less figure-hugging means it’s far more forgiving, which is a godsend for those of us who don’t have Nicole’s figure. And let’s face it, that’s most of the human race, is it not? The BCBG version features all the sexy components of the Topshop dress thanks to the cut-out detailing. Would you be brave enough to rock it at a Christmas do? Open back gown, £225.72, BCBG Max Azria available at Shopbop All over beaded dress, £495 £198 £99, Anoushka G available at House of Fraser

Tulisa underwhelms in Herve Leger at X Factor press launch

Last Updated on 18th August 2012 It goes without saying that X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has a cracking body, and we all know by now that the classic Herve Leger by Max Azria bandage dress does wonders for showcasing one’s curves… but we think she could have said “look at my hot bod” in a better way. Don’t get us wrong, we love the bandage dress as it does exactly what it’s supposed to; just look at how miniscule Tulisa’s waist is. Plus, it gives her an hourglass figure to rival Kim Kardashian’s. However, were just really, really, really bored of bandage dresses! And to top it all off, we’re still not too keen on her newly lightened locks. We really want to love it as we have a bit of a soft spot for Tulisa, so we’re hoping it will grow on us as the weeks go on. Are you looking forward to the new series of X Factor which starts tomorrow? We can’t wait for the live shows, as we know Tulisa will up the style ante and give us some show-stopping looks to prove she is a (semi) Greek goddess!

sparkly bling poppies x factor

Blinged up poppies, as seen on Saturday’s X Factor, raise over £40million

Last Updated on 9th November 2011 The Poppy first revealed its new sparkly make-over last year during both the X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing, where every judge and contestant alike wore one of their glitzy accessories to show their support for the cause while keeping in with the fab theme of the show. This year, however, the poppies have got even sparklier and have thus sold out in record time!

Kelly Rowland flashes a little too much leaving the X Factor studios

Kelly, Kelly, Kelly! we love you on X Factor and your overtly American turn of phrase. We also love the way you big up the Sisterhood as Beyoncé’s best friend, but we certainly don’t love this dress. Leaving the X Factor studios last night and fresh from filming the live eviction, Kelly chose to exit the building in this revealing pink dress. While we love the colour, which works wonderfully with Kelly’s skin tone, the slit opening at the front turns it from classy to cheap. It’s fine to reveal a peek of lingerie now and again, girl, but flashing nearly all of your bra is a faux pas by anybody’s standards. That being said, you do go some way to redeem yourself with those show-stopping diamond earrings and shiny superstar hairdo. You’re still our favourite judge, Kel, but in the future please leave those outlandishly revealing outfits to the contestants. [poll id=”219″]

Cheryl Cole hasn’t got the X Factor in DVF and de la Renta

Our greatest British export Cheryl Cole touched down in America last week, ready to start auditions as a judge on the US X Factor. We waited with baited breath to see what the gorgeous Geordie would don for her first day of her new job but our hearts sank when we first saw these photos of her in LA. OK, what’s right with it? The colours are beautiful. The orange and violet mix of her Oscar de la Renta frilled top and DVF flares work perfectly with her enviously olive skin, and the turquoise belt makes her waist look tiny.  She’s also hit the nail on the head with no fussy jewellery or accessories – with colours that bright, she’s letting them do the talking. But what’s wrong with it? Cheryl has broken the one rule of wearing flares – the length. If they’re too long, like hers, you’re left looking like you have no feet, which is weird on all kinds of levels (and rather disappointingly we can’t see what shoes she chose). But the real disappointment was the hair. Cheryl had completely overdone it on the backcombing and hairspray, making her usually flawless locks look more like Dolly Parton’s over-the-top barnet. Let’s just hope Chez brushes out that Elnett and finds a tailor pronto… [poll id=”107″]

X Factor makes models

8 Factors to Consider When Choosing a Rehab Facility

According to the U.S. Addiction Rehab Industry – 5th Edition published in 2020, the United States alone has almost 15,000 drug and alcohol recovery centers. With so many rehab facilities across the country, it’s not just about finding a good rehab facility, but it’s more about finding the right one for your needs because it is a crucial step in your recovery from substance abuse.  If you’re trying to search for rehabilitation services that can cater to your specific needs, here are the factors you need to consider when choosing a rehab facility: Location. When choosing a rehab facility, one thing you need to consider is the location. Do you want the clinic to be in your city or state or would you prefer to move elsewhere to get the help you need? While finding a local rehab facility may be more cost-effective and accessible, the change of scenery and physical distance from your old surroundings may be better for you. So you need to decide on a location first, whether you’re looking for a Fort Myers drug rehab facility in Florida or want to move to a different state altogether. Facilities offered. Another factor to consider is what kind of facility you need to check into. Some rehabs provide inpatient treatment while others specialize in outpatient treatment, both have their own pros and cons. Fortunately, there are ways for you to find out which kind of facility is better for you in terms of treatment. For instance, you can meet with an addiction counselor or other qualified experts to help come to a decision. This way, you narrow down your options further so you can focus on one type of rehab facility in your chosen location. Specialized treatment options. Not all rehab centers provide the same kind of services, […]

Planning or Already Have a Pension? Here are 7 Little-Known Factors You Must Know About (#4 Might Surprise You!)

Last Updated on 10th February 2021 Hopefully, you’ll have put some thought into planning your pension, or you’ll already have started one. If not, you’ll be solely reliant on the State Pension or benefits for your retirement income.  Maximising your pension is critical, and you need to be aware of a few things that affect your pension.  Read on to find out about seven little-known factors that can positively or negatively affect your retirement funds. 1. Your Pension’s Growth Rate Perhaps the most significant factor that determines how much your pension will be worth is its growth rate. It is imperative that you routinely check your pension’s performance so you can assess if it is best to leave your funds where they are or move them elsewhere. Of course, making such an assessment might be better done through a financial professional. You should consider setting up regular pension checks with an advisor to ensure you are not missing out on pension growth. 2. Single or Multiple Funds There are situations where you’ll be better off with your pension split between multiple funds and others when a single consolidated fund will perform best. One advantage of having a consolidated fund is that you will only be paying one set of fees. Another is that you will have a more significant capital amount to which returns will be applied. A disadvantage of moving multiple funds into a single consolidated fund is that any risk to that fund applies to your whole pension. You should seek professional advice before deciding to consolidate your funds. 3. Annual Fees Most pensions have an annual fee attached to them, and the amount you pay varies from fund to fund. What is critical for you to understand is that your pension fund should be growing at a […]

The Feminine Factor: Finding the Right Hair Removal Method for You

Last Updated on 14th April 2020 Many women treat hair removal as a regular part of their beauty treatment routine but despite carrying out the various different tasks on such a habitual basis, there are plenty of us who are still striving to find the right removal system. Shaving and depilatories are often used as quick methods for ridding yourself of any unwanted hair but the issue for a good number of us is the fact that we have to suffer irritation and redness as a result, and fairly rapid re-growth is also another negative to contend with. If you are looking for some alternatives that offer the prospect of safe and relatively painless hair removal, here are some to consider. Laser hair removal There are a fair number of different systems and options to consider if you are looking at using a laser hair removal system. There are high-end laser hair removal systems that work by concentrating on the pigment at the base of each hair follicle and there are home devices that are designed to work effectively but are considered by some to be best for when touch-ups are required rather than full-blown hair removal. There are so many options and considerations so you may want to consider this home laser hair removal product guide on beyondtalk.net to get a better picture of what might work for you and what to look out for. What you need to remember is the fact that the FDA approves devices that offer laser hair reduction and not removal, which means you should expect some level of re-growth and also be prepared to undergo about six treatments on average to achieve the results you desire. Electrolysis Another option that may be familiar to you is electrolysis, which is a system that works […]

Emma Watson has the wow factor on Christian Dior Couture AW14 front row

Last Updated on 8th July 2014 With every great fashion week – be it autumn/winter, spring/summer or the highly anticipated Haute Couture – comes a great front row. And the Christian Dior FROW was full to the brim with ultra-stylish A-listers (we wouldn’t expect anything less from one of the biggest French fashion Houses) including Miss Emma Watson, who pretty much stole the show for us! The former Harry Potter actress blew us away with her appearance on the front row, choosing to wear a wow-factor silk dress – from Dior, natch – which came with a rather interesting expanding silhouette. We think it would look quite unforgiving on a lot of other people – celebs and us regular folk – but Emma totally makes it work for her. We wouldn’t question it if someone told us the dress was made especially for her. The rest of the look was utter perfection too; Emma’s hair was brushed across her shoulders very naturally, and her make up was flawless, as expected. Why Emma Watson isn’t a Christian Dior ambassadress a’ la Jennifer Lawrence and Marion Cotillard is beyond us. We’re thinking of starting a petition to rectify this soon; who’s with us?

Vanessa Hudgens turns up the glam factor at Gimme Shelter premiere

Last Updated on 24th January 2014 Let’s end the working week on a style high, shall we? And we think you’ll agree that sartorial highs don’t get much grander than this look courtesy of Vanessa Hudgens. The stunning actress attended the New York premiere of her new film, Gimme Shelter, and absolutely owned the red carpet in a floor-sweeping black dress from the Monique Lhuillier spring/summer 2013 collection. We’d love to say that Vanessa has come a long way since her High School Musical days because we love a good style transformation story, but we think her red carpet style has always been on point. Vanessa kept all other accessories to a minimum, leaving the dress and her effortless beauty to do all the talking, and kept her hair in a loose, slightly disheveled side plait to add a tough of edginess to a high-glamour look. Rosario Dawson gets a mention too for looking very chic in her monochrome ensemble!

Lea Michele gets the wow factor in Valentino

We’re so used to seeing Lea Michele as the all-round American High School sweetheart in Glee that when we saw this picture of her in a very revealing gown, it was quite the revelation! But appearing at the New Year’s Eve premier in Los Angeles, the 25-year-old looked a world away from her on-screen alter ego. Her long sweeping nude tulle gown was from Valentino’s spring 2012 collection and looked stunning against Lea’s honey skin tone. The dress featured gold beading and a daringly plunging neckline. We love its semi-sheerness and unashamedly girly embellishment. Lea paired the show-stopper with Neil Lane jewellery and loose side-sweeping waves – after all, who doesn’t love a bit of old school Hollywood glamour? They say New Year’s Eve can be disappointing, but if we were in a dress like this, we’re sure we’d cope alright. [poll id=”251″]

So imagine our delight when we came across this Skeena S Cyclone Scuba dress which is pretty much everything we mentioned above all rolled into one digital-print dream. The label launched just a few weeks ago, so this Skeena S Cyclone Scuba dress is the perfect piece to rock if you are the trend-setter of your friendship group. And even if you aren’t, it’s never too late to start! The Skeena S Cyclone Scuba dress features a tailored bodice and a high-waisted skater skirt (just what you need for wearing on nights out – you’ll feel like Baby from Dirty Dancing twirling around in it) as well as a cinched in waist for maximum definition. It’s also a little bit daring too thanks to the cut-out detailing at the side and back, so it should definitely be your go-to dress when you want to inject a little bit of sartorial sex factor. We feel we should mention that the Skeena S Cyclone Scuba dress also comes in a black and white print if you fancy something a little more subtle and toned down, but if you live by the “go big or go home” mantra like all of us here at MFL HQ, then you know which one you have to choose… Skeena S Cyclone Scuba dress, £230

First look: Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell in Gogglebox

Last Updated on 17th October 2014 The countdown has officially begun as there are only a matter of hours to go until the Gogglebox celebrity special airs on Channel 4! We told you earlier this month that award-winning show Gogglebox had lined up some very special (and very A-list!) guests in the form of Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Noel Gallagher to take part in its one-off celebrity special for Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer. And now we have the very first look at the living room where the TV-watching (and more importantly, TV analysing) magic will happen. What do you guys think? We can’t wait to see what the supermodels think of last week’s television programmes. Kate’s apparently a big fan of The Great British Bake Off and X Factor, while Naomi is said to be utterly obsessed with Housewives Of Atlanta. Who knew? Get the popcorn ready – you’re not going to want to miss a single second of this TV gold! [Marie Claire]

Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell in Gogglebox special!

Last Updated on 7th October 2014 The cast of award-winning show Gogglebox are now celebrities in their own right, but the show may be about to get even more star-studded thanks to the rumoured arrival of Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell! Yep, you read that correctly, the iconic supermodels are due to appear in a celebrity special of the Channel 4 show which peers in people’s living rooms as they watch the hottest TV shows of the week. And if Kate and Naomi weren’t enough, Noel Gallagher is also rumoured to be appearing (among other celeb guests)… “Kate is good friends with Noel and Naomi,” a ‘source’ reportedly said. “When she knew she would have them by her side she did not hesitate to agree.  She likes TV and is a fan of Gogglebox, Bake Off and X Factor.” Well that’s settled then! The episode will air on October 17th as part of Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer fundraiser. We have every faith that the supermodel pals will raise a lot of money for charity! [Daily Mail] [Image]

Pixie Lott suits up in white Saint Laurent

Last Updated on 7th August 2014 Looks like Pixie Lott is taking a leaf out of Angelina Jolie’s book by embracing the Saint Laurent suit… but do you think she has pulled it off as well as the soon-to-be Mrs Brad Pitt? We love how the singer took such a big sartorial risk while attending her very own album launch party at the Langham Hotel on Tuesday night, as we would have expected her to show off her perfectly tones pins in a typically short and somewhat girlie mini dress by one of her favourite designers. We’re glad she took the risk as we can’t actually fault the Saint Laurent suit the chose to rock; plus we love how she played peek-a-boo with the jacket by not choosing to wear a top inside, thus adding to the risk and sex factor. She gave her look some colour by way of some super sexy deep red lipstick, and made sure her look screamed “party girl” as opposed to “office girl” by opting for some wild, wavy tresses. We like! More style risks please, Pixie!

Rosie Huntington Whiteley wears Gucci for Harper’s Bazaar UK September cover

Last Updated on 6th August 2014 While most September issues are all about showcasing the newest fashionable threads to help ease us into the new season, Harper’s Bazaar UK has gone in a totally different direction – by not featuring any clothing on its cover whatsoever. Instead, Harper’s Bazaar UK has decided to put all its trust in a gorgeous face and a fabulous mane of hair to sell all its issues… and that face is none other than Rosie Huntington Whiteley! We don’t want to speak too soon, but we don’t think the mag’s going to have any trouble shifting issues, do you? Although you can’t really see it, Rosie is wearing a Gucci coat on the cover, which was shot by David Slijper and styled by Miranda Almond. She was interviewed for the mag by Esquire editor-in-chief Alex Blimes, and opens up about all the jobs she had before she made it big, her boyfriend Jason Statham, and, believe it or not, missing England when she’s in LA… “I do battle with wanting to be closer to my family, wanting to call my brother on a Sunday and ask him to come round and watch The X Factor, or be there to support my sister, or go shopping with my mum,” she said. “Not being able to do that can get me down. But I feel really grateful that I do get to be here once a month. There’s an instant connection with a British person. I can sit here and tell you about things and we instantly get what the other one is talking about. We sort of get what she means; in a weird way, despite living in the constant LA sunshine, we would miss England too! You’ll have to get the September issue to find […]

Cheryl Fernandez Versini has a brand new Madame Tussauds waxwork – complete with a big shiny engagement ring!

Last Updated on 30th July 2014 A new name, a new marital status, a new rock on her finger, and now a brand new waxwork… we definitely see a theme here! Cheryl Fernandez Versini (formerly Cheryl Cole, duh!) has got herself a shiny new waxwork at Madame Tussauds, and we think it might just be her most realistic one yet! “It’s time to refresh her look especially now she’s about to burst back onto our TV screens with imminent return of the X Factor,” said Madame Tussauds marketing manager Matthew Clarkson. The timing is pretty perfect, although we do think Cheryl has thrown a spanner in the works by choosing to lighten her locks even further these past few weeks, thus making the waxwork already look a tad out of date. Still, beady eyed readers and Madame T’s visitors will notice that the newlywed has her big shiny engagement ring on her finger, which still makes the waxwork nice and relevant. Talk about attention to detail! What do you think of Chez’s new waxwork? Is this one your favourite? [Image]
