I was thinking of making a thread on her but I didn't think anyone would be interested.

I find her style interesting. Especially now that it has morphed into "hollywood glam" from street. Her street style is more original but I still don't like it. Love her in the HL dress and the red one.

I can't wait to see her style throughout the year, though.

^ Yeah, me too. You can tell she's being styled for the X factor however, she seems to have adapted a couple of things for her "street style" (which most of times she still gets wrong)
I can't want for the Live Shows to see what she'll be wearing .

Definitely. I wonder if her first couple of outfits were her own choices from her own closet, because that's what it seems like.

It's as if the XFactor stylists were like "Oh no, were going to have to do something about this mess!" and that's why she looks the way she does now (better). Althought I wouldn't mind seeing her in something crazy again to keep away from the same ol' cookie-cutter glamed-up-judge look.

^ I agree, it was a miss, but I loved her hair and makeup.

I love the flower dress and perfect shoes to go with! Her whole look in that pic is very simple yet stands out beautifully.

Pride of Britain Awards. I actually like this dress, but not the shoes to go with.

I reckon she's got two different stylists, one for the X Factor and a personal one. Otherwise it doesn't explain how wrong she gets it when she does solo appearances cos on the X Factor she's been looking really stylish without adding herself years. Last night was another fail for me.

There were some great shots in an interview that ran in the You supplement of the Mail on Sunday recently, here are some of them, and parts of the feature (dailymail.co.uk):



Quote:
Hours after Tulisa Contostavlos was announced as the youngest-ever judge on The X Factor, she deleted her Twitter account from her phone. I was getting tons of abuse. I felt like at least 50 per cent of the nation hated me.

Part of it, she thinks, is because Twitters X Factor zealots just didnt know who she was. N-Dubz, the urban pop trio she sang with until they took a break earlier this year, have had three platinum albums. But their fanbase is rooted in underground youth music, not Saturday night primetime TV.

If youre not an N-Dubz fan, youre not going to be a Tulisa fan, so I expected abuse. But I didnt know it was going to be at that level. It was intense: How dare you be replacing Cheryl or Dannii? Youre a f****** whore. The main stigma was chav. Shes not classy, shes not a lady, shes a gobby chav.

She pauses and laughs. Sitting in her dressing room in a pink tracksuit, sipping a cuppa (milk, three sugars), going nineteen to the dozen, gobby chav sounds a little ironic. Its also wrong. Tulisa, 23, is funny, thoughtful, immensely good company and strikingly beautiful she has eyes like gemstones once the stage make-up is stripped away. She is also honest to a fault. The girl says it like she sees it one reason, of course, why she was chosen as an X Factor judge.

In my interviews I told the producers Id be honest and opinionated. I said Im young, Im current and The X Factor has never had that before. And it needs it. Urban pop is such a big part of the music industry right now and I dont think theres anyone that can specialise in that section the way I do.
Quote:
A new gym routine and a new smile (she happily admits to having had a gum lift and veneers for the show, and is delighted with the result) have all formed part of an image overhaul for Tulisa. She may have her critics, but few would disagree that her makeover on X Factor potentially winning the crown of best-dressed woman on telly has been a revelation.

Im taking the time now to be a little bit of a glamour queen, and Im enjoying it. With N-Dubz, youve got an image to keep with the band. If I put on nice glamorous dresses, the boys would go, You look too Taylor Swift. You dont fit in. I never wanted to dress like the whole ghetto thing. Dont get me wrong I love my tracksuits. But now I get to have fun for a change. This is a time for me to embrace fashion and actually find out what I like.

Working with her stylist Gemma Sheppard has created spectacular results.

Im realising that quality is important and so Im starting to appreciate designer labels. But I like being able to mix high street with designer. I love to rock up in a 600 pair of shoes and a 20 dress. That always shocks people, and it means other people can buy it themselves.

For The X Factor, she says she goes one of two ways. Ive got two vibes: I either go really girlie and elegant or I go more sexy, depending on what mood Im in. A year ago no one would have dared describe Tulisa as girlie.

I love being girlie! Im a little Barbie doll at heart.
