Tulisa ‘never stood a chance’ against Nicole Scherzinger in X Factor fashion battle

X Factor 2012: Nicole Scherzinger knew how to dress for her body, says fashion expert

It was a fashion battle every week on The X Factor stage, but it appears new judge Nicole Scherzinger has won the X Factor 2012 fashion war.

The winning judge impressed the fashion critics week after week with her sartorial choices, which left fellow judge Tulisa in the shadows.

Nicole Scherzinger knew her body and how to dress it on The X Factor © Rex"It's a shame Tulisa never turned up to the battle of The X Factor's best dressed," said Emily O'Brien, editor of fashion and social shopping website Styloko.com. "She hasn't had it easy, let's be honest. Standing next to the shamazingly schmokin' Scherzinger each week and trying to out-do her hotness is no mean feat.”

"Unfortunately, Tulisa's try-hard frocks and over-amped make-up never stood a chance against Nicole's sequin sheaths and sheer sculpting dresses. That's a woman who knows her body and how to dress it,” she added.

Tulisa needed to swap the skater dresses for a more flattering alternative © RexTulisa, who found fame in the hip-hop group N-Dubz, joined the X Factor panel as the replacement for Cheryl Cole last year.

"Of course, Tulisa is dressing for a different audience. She has a younger following, but that doesn't mean she needs to look like she's off to a high school prom,” Emily told Yahoo! Lifestyle.

“She needs to play up those "urban roots" and swap the mini dresses for something edgier and more flattering,” she concluded.

So it seems not only has Nicole stolen Tulisa’s crown as the winning judge but she’s overtaken her in the style stakes too. Do you agree? Let us know over on Twitter with the #YLifeXFStyle.
