My ambition for this post is to get through it without uttering the phrase “This season, it’s all about…”. I WILL NOT DO IT! Plum, Burgundy and maroon shades are everywhere at the mo. So we should all run along now, like good little fashion slaves, and follow suit.

Luckily it’s faaaaaairly easy on the Irish complexion, makes a great alternative to black for formal wear, is dark enough to still be flattering and you can spill your wine all over yourself, safe in the knowledge that it’ll just blend in. If you know me personally, you’ll understand how vital this is.

You likey?

I reckon the good folk at Penneys are only DELIREH with this photo! Check out Beyonce wearing a floral, Penneys headband whilst performing at Oxegen last night. If you’re heading to Electric Picnic in a few short weeks time, (2nd - 4th September..do it…it’s AWESOME!) better grab one fast. They’ll fly out after this!

Bags one!

If I could wolf-whistle, I would. This is about as close to perfection as it gets. No wonder Jessica Alba hasn’t smiled in four years…she hadn’t met this dress yet. Anyway she can feck off. I hate her for having this dress AND those legs and for being invited to the Vogue Paris Dinner at Hotel de la Rocherfoucauld Doudeauville in Paris….hotel de la what now? And there was dinner?!…..

This dress and dinner…two of my favourite things.

Biotch!

Cheryl -vs- Dannii (Week 9)

Look, we’ve all been there Cheryl. You forget your dress and end up having to construct something entirely from toilet roll. We understand! And at least your legs don’t look like you bought them this week. As for Dannii; I’m going to Las Vegas early next year - whilst there I shall marry Dannii’s dress at The Little White Chapel.

Sunday’s fashion was misery all round for me. Dresses that tried too hard to do too much all at once and mediocre meh hair was the order of the day. Na, you’re grand.

Jeepers, it’s nearly all over. What the hell will we talk about then??!! (<-actual serious worry)

Look, a blind man could see the flaws in Kerry Katona’s outfit…*coughrankshoescough*…but props to her crops; she actually looks semi-human for a change. The photo call was to promote her 74th reality show: ‘Please never stop looking at me or I’ll die’ …or something. Think she’s admitting the drugs in this one - that sorta alternates between series to keep things fresh. So she had to look all ‘Ooh I’m clean and a new woman’-ish and so off to the gym she trotted. Add a new dress from Littlewoods and shazzam!!!! …she no longer craves the white stuff.

Magik!

Anyway, what was my point? Oh yeah, what dya make of her gettup?

Cheryl -vs- Dannii (Week 8)

Pat yizzerselves on the back ladies. If you can’t reach I suggest using a household implement such as a wooden spoon, or perhaps a lengthy cucumber. Because clearly Cheryl and Dannii have been reading this blog intently and learning from your fair but firm criticisms. The evidence being that they both looked turbo-minty-whopper-fresh this week. Oh you are wel-cooome!

They even managed to co-ordinate necklines on both nights. Also…who is Dannii’s hair dresser and who do I have to sleep with to have a go? Savage. Like, all the time.

Over to you….

I don’t hate Katie Waissel’s new hair, but I hate why she did it. She’s a walking Panto this one. (Oh yes she is!…sorry) I also hate that everyone appears to have fallen for it. Herro? It’s still the same bird underneath the barnet! Get her out!!!!

Well X Factor lot? What do you reckon?

CHERYL -vs- DANNII (Week 7)

This Saturday, like a certain OTHER Ozzy ex-soap star, I was torn. I like Cheryl’s dress. And, believe it or not, I don’t have a huge issue with the fake mop. (Still loath the plum rinse but anyway). But why do her legs always look like she’s wearing ice-skater tights? Is she wearing tights? Or is it a caked-on, Sally Hanson leg spray situation? More than likely… Either way she looks like a mannequin and it kinda freaks me out. Dannii was a big Ridey McRiderson again. I could eat her dress. And where is she getting all these awesome earrings? I don’t wear them, but if I did… 

As for Sunday….ugh…I dispair. Dannii, what are ye playin’ at? Thankfully there are all kind of toilet roll cover, flamenco type references I can make to avoid making the obvious, slightly racist, one. Look, you’ve been pretty consistent up until now so I’ll let you off this once. But consider yourself warned! Cheryl’s dress is almost nice but it didn’t stand a chance against the earrings - surely they’d look better teamed with ‘goin’ ou’ pijamiz’? And I’d like to draw your attention to her feet……. WTF?! Stripper shoes? Just coz she dances loco, it don’t make her…..well…..

4. Eat yellow snow

5. Wear ‘F*** You’ necklace to meet impressionables.

Good work Riri!

Cheryl -vs- Dannii (Week 6)

Dannii Minogue, ye big dirty ride ye! I actually have nothing bad to say about you for Saturday….like, at all! This worries me slightly. Have I lost my powers?! Or maybe you just look bleedin’ deadly! Oh! - but you did act like a prize egg snapping your fingers at Louis Walsh like a child so that’s something I guess…phewzers!

Saturday Cheryl looked like…Cheryl. I love her Cavalli dress ‘n’all, but her hair is that of a 15 year old going to school. If only she’d consider an up-do! That couldn’t possibly go wrong…..could it?!

Sunday night’s dresses were much the same…in that they were not the same in any way…but Dannii’s was much nicer…again. That sentence made ALL KINDS of sense in my head.

So, that’s that. We’ve covered everything of note from this week’s fashion I think. Or have I left anything out? No? Grand. See you all this time next week for more X Factor fashion.

(L)

Oh actually there was one more thing……..CHERYL’S HAIR!!!!

WTFlip?! Let’s just get them all out there …..Minnie Mouse…Princess Leia…Pebbles Flintstone…Gary Oldman in Dracula (google it)… what on earth was it supposed to be?! If it was an attempt to draw all eyes to her noggin, it worked. Congratulations! But you still looked like an awful tit. Two of them, in fact.

What the ****?!

Cheryl -vs- Dannii (Week 5)

Week 5: A week where Cheryl’s entire wardrobe cost the sum total of €7.50 in Michael Guineys and Dannii dressed up like a big, annoying Christmas present and pretended to be pleased that her sexy big sis was prancing around half-naked on stage.

Forget Hurricane Thomas (should be easy as it never actually happened)… there are far more important X Factor Fashion disasters taking place!

Celebrity DJ and all round ridebag Mo Kelly has dyed her hair bright pink for Breast Cancer Awareness, the mad yoke. Ballygowan are donating €5k to the Marie Keating Foundation to mark her efforts and of course her head will be a walking, shining beacon of awareness for the next wee while. Good woman Mo!

Do your bit by ‘like’ing the facebook page here and don’t forget to lob a load of that pink water inta ye boss!

I think we’re all in agreement that Dannii’s claims of looking so amazing after dropping a sprog recently being down to “running around, being a working Mum” are total balls. She’s clearly busting her ass and it shows. HOT MOMMA! Having said that…this week…not so much! I don’t know what her stylist did but she made her look bigger than she actually is! P45.com.

As for the tweedy one - it’s just one Minnie Mouse outfit after another isn’t it? And I know it was Hallowe’en and all but what’s with the Vegas Barbie gettup below?! Ugh….I despair.

Well? Let’s hear it!
