It's the Big Purple One! Cheryl Cole misses the fashion mark AGAIN as she wears Quality Street-inspired dress on X Factor



Making an entrance: Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue are accompanied by fellow judges Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell as they walk on to take their seats on the X Factor judging panel

She was clearly attempting to be fashion forward in her purple and pink Ina Soltani dress.

But sadly, Cheryl Cole ended up looking more like the Big Purple One in a box of Quality Street chocolate in the ruffled outfit as she joined her fellow judges on the X Factor panel.

The 27-year-old singer once again missed out in the fashion competition to her fellow judge Dannii Minogue, 39, who kept it simple in an asymmetric black sequinned dress from her own Project D collection.

Missing the mark: Cheryl failed to make an impact in her Ina Soltani purple and pink dress, while Dannii looked chic in a black sequinned outfit from her own Project D range

And it wasn't only her outfit which ensured Dannii topped the leaderboard, as her young and fresh styling also kept her ahead of the pack.

While Cheryl's newly-red hair was swept back into an up 'do which added years on the former Girls Aloud star, Dannii went au naturel with her blonde bob straight and chic.

But while Cheryl and Dannii might be feuding on the fashion front, they certainly found themselves united on The X Factor tonight when Jamiroquai's Jay Kay took to the stage.

Styling: Cheryl's up 'do did little to flatter her, while Dannii's sleek bob flattered her body and her ouftit

Following an X-rated rant earlier in the day when Jay Kay had been more than a little dereogatory about both the X Factor and Cheryl and Dannii as judges, the girls decided to stand their ground and refuse to applaud after his performance of new single White Knuckle Ride.

So cute! Dannii posted a picture of her son Ethan dressed up like a pumpkin on her Twitter page

As Simon and Louis clapped, Cheryl sat still with a sullen expression on her face, and Dannii was equally unenthusiastic.

It also seems the girls are ahead of the game in terms of their finalists on this year's X Factor.

While Cheryl is the only judge to still have all four of her acts, Dannii comes in a close second with three finalists left as Louis finds himself in third place with two acts and Simon languishes behind with just one finalist left - following the departure of girl group Belle Amie on tonight's show.

Meanwhile, as well as enjoying her X Factor duties, Dannii has also been making the most of her weekend by spending time with her son Ethan as he enjoys his first Halloween.

Sending a message to boyfriend Kris Smith, Dannii wrote on her Twitter page: 'Happy Halloween from Mummy Minogue and our little Pumpkin.'

She then posted a picture of three-month-old Ethan dressed up in an orange pumpkin outfit with a huge smile on his face.

But model Kris was less than impressed with Ethan's new look, tweeting in reply: 'Ahhhhh my poor boy!'

Nadine Coyle has 'lollipop head' look as she reveals worryingly thin limbs and big hair at London show



No pies Aloud: Nadine Coyle looked very thin in a Non Blondes silver dress and red Gina sequin stilettos when she performed at London club night G.A.Y. last night

She's already got the scarily-thin legs - but now worryingly skinny Nadine Coyle has got the lollipop head to match.

The 25-year-old Girls Aloud star, who lives in Los Angeles, sported a bouffant beehive hair-do that made her head look even bigger and spherical on top of her stick-like body.

Wearing a silver fitted sparkly dress that emphasised her tiny waist, the singer was performing her solo single Insatiable at London nightclub G.A.Y. last night.

Going solo: The star debuted her solo single Insatiable live as well as performing Girls Aloud favourites Love Machine and The Promise

The beauty from Northern Ireland has often insisted that she doesn't have a weight problem and loves pigging out on greasy breakfasts.

Earlier this year, she maintained: 'I am 100 per cent fit and healthy and I am the right weight for my type of body. I am totally happy with my weight. I’m just doing a lot of running with my trainer back home in LA.'

She added: 'When I get back to Derry I always enjoy a good fry-up that my mum makes. That’s my big weakness. I also eat too much chocolate as well. If I’m honest I’m not a particularly healthy eater.'

Thin: Nadine Coyle's arms look tiny too as she leaves London's Heaven club after performing at the G.A.Y. night

Curvy: A healthier-looking Nadine with Girls Aloud bandmates Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh in 2003

As reported by the Daily Mail earlier today, Nadine - who has distanced herself from her Girls Aloud bandmates since moving to the United States - could be about to make their relationship even more strained with a tell-all book.

The star is in talks to put pen to paper and dish the dirt on her time with bandmates Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh, Nicola Roberts and Sarah Harding.

Despite management constantly insisting that the band are only on hiatus and are set to reform again next year, it could sound the death knell for the much-loved girl group.

TV cape-r: The star sang live on Paul O'Grady's ITV chat show on Friday night - accompanied by the host on piano

Quick change: Nadine then removed the cape to reveal a sexy leather dress

Nadine also claimed lat week that she wasn't invited to Cheryl's performance on the X Factor last week.

She was the only member of the group not to be watching from the wings as Cheryl debuted new single Promise This.

The Northern Irish star also appeared to take a pop at Cheryl - who mimed for much of the track - when she said she'd only ever perform on shows where she could sing live.

She also said that she would never be a judge on the show as she couldn't be mean to the contestants.

Talking to Metro, the Irish singer said: 'I only want to do live shows. What happens with TV shows is you can't always do things live.

'They have a lot of dummy stuff sat there and you can't really get the full effect.
However, she insisted that she wanted to see the rest of the girls soon.

She told the Mirror: 'It's fine it really is. I really want to see them [the girls] this week. Fingers crossed, I'm hoping we can. I guess it's long overdue.'
Let's hope if when they do reunite, it's over dinner.

Nadine's single Insatiable meanwhile is out 1 November, followed by her debut solo album, also called Insatiable, on 8 November.

X Factor 2010: Flaky Katie Waissel survives by the skin of her teeth as Simon Cowell is down to one act after Belle Amie are voted off



It's a close call: Katie Waissel survived the X Factor by the skin of her teeth after performing Etta James' Trust In Me

She thought she had found her niche with 'quirky' songs like I Wanna Be Like You The Jungle Book and Bewitched.

But last night Katie Waissel came the closest she has ever come to being axed from the X Factor after going head-to-head with girl group Belle Amie in the final showdown.

However, the 24-year-old singer was given another chance after Belle Amie were finally thrown off the show.

The verdict: Katie and Belle Amie anxiously wait with host Dermot O'Leary to find out which of them will be going home

Belle Amie found themselves in the bottom two for the third time, and did their best in the sing-off with Katie Waissel by singing Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway

Before singing their hearts out for survival, the girls told Dermot: 'We are ready to fight for our place. We want to be here.'

After a shaky start, things went from bad to worse for Belle Amie, who sang both out of tune and out of time.

Time to go home: Belle Amie find out they have been voted off the X Factor, after the votes go to deadlock

Tears all round: The girls tearfully insisted it wouldn't be the end of the road for Belle Amie

Katie, who decided to sing Etta James' Trust In Me, added: 'I'm feeling nervous but OK. A little kind of...' before trailing off.

Walking nervously onto the stage wearing a sequinned top and harem-style trousers, a barefoot Katie did her best to perform the famous track to her best ability.

And, despite making it through to the end of the song, Katie then broke down in tears as she realised she could be the one going home.

Make or break: The girls took to the stage for their final time to perform Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway

She's through: But an emotional Katie managed to once again pull it out of the bag for her final song

Taking to the stage for what could be the final time, Katie and Belle Amie waited anxiously to find out their fate.

Struggling to contain her emotions, Katie broke down further when Simon told her: 'The most amazing thing with you Katie is that every time you're in this position you sing better than you do on the main show.'

However, Simon then added: 'But 100 per cent I'm going to stand by my girls.'

The judges: While Dannii looked good in a black sequinned dress, Cheryl missed the fashion stakes again

Not so glamorous: Cheryl managed to look years older by pulling her hair back while Dannii looked radiant

After Cheryl decided to back her own act and send home Belle Amie, Dannii also decided to send home Belle Amie.

But then Louis shocked viewers when he opted to send home Katie, sending things to deadlock.

Referring to the public vote, it was Dermot's duty to tell Belle Amie their time on the show was finally up and they would be leaving the programme.

In floods of tears, the girls said they wouldn't be breaking up the band that was created specifically through the TV talent show, adding: 'We are not giving up, this is not the end of Belle Amie. We have only been together for a couple of months but it has been amazing.'

And Simon, who now only has one act left, added: 'They have been a pleasure to work with. I don't think it's the end for this group, they're survivors.'

The judges opened the show as always, and most of the attention was on what Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole were wearing.

Rocking it out: Bon Jovi were the first performance of the night, and were joined by the finalists

Enjoying yourself, guys? All the contestants looked as though they were having fun with the performance

While Dannii once again looked stunning in a black sequinned dress from her Project D range, while Cheryl Cole once again failed to hit the fashion mark in a slightly odd Quality Street-inspired purple and pink dress with ruffles galore.

And, with her newly-red hair pinned back, Cheryl added managed to add years onto herself in a matter of seconds.

The first performance from the evening came from legendary rock group Bon Jovi, who were joined by the X Factor finalists as they sang their classic track Livin' On A Prayer.

Lead singer Jon Bon Jovi sounded as fresh as ever as he belted out his famous lyrics, while many of the contestants looked as though they couldn't believe their luck as they shared the stage with the band.

Controversial: Jamiroquai's Jay Kay was up next with a performance of new single White Knuckle Ride

Bad blood: While Simon and Louis applauded, Cheryl and Dannii kept silent following the singer's rant

Shocking: Jay Kay told Dermot he 'had reservations' about appearing on The X Factor

Belle Amie got into the groove by playing air guitar, while even Mary put her inhibitions aside to dance along to the undeniably catchy song.

And Bon Jovi were so impressed by the finalists' peformance that they decided to make them a unique offer.

Asked what he thought of the talent in this year's competition, Jon said: 'They're going to be opening for us on tour, watch out!'

Having her cake and eating it: Rihanna was literally the icing on the cake as she took to the stage

Rapturous applause: The judges gave Rihanna a much more enthusiastic response than Jay Kay

Carnage: Dermot wasn't too impressed as he got caught in the crossfire of a food fight in the background

In the second of the three performances of the evening, Jamiroquai's Jay Kay took to the stage with an exclusive rendition of his new single White Knuckle Ride.
Jay Kay: 'I have to say, I had reservations about coming on the show, but everyone has been charming and I've had a lovely time.'

However, there appeared to be some bad blood between Cheryl and Jay Kay, as the X Factor judge steadfastly refused to applaud his performance, and looked sullen as host Dermot O'Leary spoke to the singer afterwards.

Pretty in pink: Rihanna's performance went down a storm with the audience and the judges

Cheryl's refusal to applaud comes after Jay Kay launched an astonishing rant against the X Factor female judges just hours before appearing on the show.

He said: 'What are they going to tell me about f****** music? What the f***. When have you ever done anything? You're useless. The pair of you. I mean you look great and I'd like to f****** s**g you but that's all.'

Talking the judges a little later in the show, Dermot commented on the apparent feud between the judges and Jay Kay, telling Cheryl: 'Cheryl, nice to see a smile on your face. Wow, I'm never going to make enemies with you!'

Delighted: Cheryl can't hide her delight as Cher is voted through

Through: Rebecca Ferguson and Cher Lloyd find out they have made it another week

Controversial: Wagner was booed as he made it through to the next week's programmes

Rihanna finished the trio of performances of the evening, performing her new single The Only Girl In The World.

Wearing a pink corset dress with romper suit underneath, Rihanna had a Marie Antoinette style food fight going on behind her as she belted out her soon-to-be next hit.

After her performance, Rihanna encouraged her dancers to continue in their food fight, while Dermot said: 'I thought Lady Gaga was weird, but this is carnage!'
However, Rihanna received a slightly more enthusiastic response from the judges, who all stood to applaud her after her energetic performance.

Then it was time to find out which of the contestants had made it through to next week's shows.

Devastated: Katie finds out she will have to perform in the sing-off alongside Belle Amie

Resigned: Belle Amie looked as though they had been expecting they would be in the bottom

After all the judges took to the stage with their remaining finalists, Dermot began to announce which had been lucky enough to get a second chance.

Paije, Cher, Aiden, One Direction, Matt, Rebecca, Mary and Treyc were all through, as well as Louis' controversial act Wagner, who refused to give into the audience's boos and bowed gallantly before leaving the stage.

Next week's show will see former X Factor alumni Shayne Ward and Dannii's sister Kylie Minogue perform.

Amanda Seyfried and Gwen Stefani party in disguise at Halloween bash... as Paris Hilton falls out of her VERY skimpy costume




Walkies: Amanda Seyfried arrives at Kate Hudson's A-list Halloween party dressed as a dog

Tricks, treats and an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction marked Halloween celebrations in Hollywood last night.

Kate Hudson's annual party proved the place to be as a host of A-list stars descended on the 31-year-old's home in Pacific Palisades.

While many famous faces turned up, some where rather hard to recognise thanks to clever costuming.

Halloween hi-jinks: Nicole Richie (L) opts for Hollywood glam in fur and diamante, while Leonardo DiCaprio is the man behind the baboon mask (R)

Mamma Mia star Amanda Seyfried sensibly stayed cosy inside a huge furry dog suit, while Gwen Stefani hid her face behind a black patent mask as Catwoman - but her signature red lipstick gave her away.

Leonardo DiCaprio did a good job of concealing his identity in a baboon mask, which he oddly chose to accessorise with a man purse slung over his shoulder.

Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe shaved off the years with some pig tails and a head band as Pocahontas, while Nicole Richie made less of an effort, simply throwing on a fur coat and a diamante hair slide for some Hollywood glamour.

Who's that girl: Gwen Stefani hid behind a Catwoman mask at Kate's party

Also apparently raiding their normal wardrobe was actor David Spade, who wore a tracksuit and carried a whistle and clipboard as Glee's sports coach, Sue Sylvester.

Kate's step-father looked sombre as a decorated military man, including beret and badges, while veteran rocker Steven Tyler played the devil in a pair of red horns.

Also enjoying Kate's hospitality was 90210 star Shenae Grimes who appeared to have gone prematurely grey.

Mad men: David Spade (L) hammed it up as Glee's Sue Sylvester while Kurt Russell (R) went military style

The party in Pacific Palisades may have been the frontrunner last night, but not to be outdone, Paris Hilton had her own bash, dressing up as a sexy Indian warrior princess,

However, the outfit proved a little to skimpy, with her top slipping down to reveal rather more than she intended.

Her rather more demure sister Nicky was cute as a button in a Minnie Mouse get-up.
Paris and Nicky's parents, Rick and Kathy Hilton mugged it up as a pair off police officers, with Kathy in a pair of sexy patent leather knee boots and gun holster belt.

Party time: Nicky Hilton as Minnie Mouse (L) and sister Paris Hilton is a sexy Indian warrior (R)

Actress Kim Porter celebrated last year's biggest movie, Avatar, in her skin-tight electric-clue body stocking and blue face paint, receiving admiring glances from fellow guests.

Meanwhile earlier in the day, the stars were dressing up on behalf of children affected by AIDS at an event in Santa Monica.

Tori Spelling sported a peacock outfit with black tutu and feathered bodice, teamed with turquoise tights, feathery shoes and a black wig.

Drama: Lady Gaga (L) rocks a Cruella de Vil outfit complete with gun in Belfast, while AnnaLynne McCord (R) is a fairy princess in Vegas

Lady Gaga unsurprisingly chose an outrageous look, sporting a dalmatian-print coat left open to reveal sexy black underwear with a trail of fake blood splashed over her neck and chest.

She completed the look with black and white hair, huge black sunglasses and a pistol in hand.

US TV favourite, Brooke Burke touted her stunning figure in a leather catsuit with matching mask and ears, as Catwoman.

At the same event acting veteran Jamie Lee Curtis showed off her fantastic legs in a cheerleader outfit complete with megaphone.

Lovely ladies: (L to R) Brooke Burke showed off her body as catwoman, Jamie Lee Curtis toots her own horn as a cheerleader and Tori Spelling is striking a feathered peacock in a tutu

Also recalling her school days was Jenni 'JWoww' Farley from The Jersey Shore, who went all-out in a mini kilt, knee socks and white blonde knotted under a sexy red satin bra as she hosted a club night in Atlanta.

Jersey gal pal Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi, dressed up as her favourite snack - a pickle for a party in Vegas.

The Jersey Shore diminutive star wore a green sequinned mini-dress, green cape, green shoes and a sparkly tiara while holding a royal sceptre with a giant pickle on top.

Star style: Steven Tyler plays devil (R) while 90210's Shenae Grimes has gone grey (R)

And tonight, Kim Kardashian tweeted a photograph of herself wearing a selection of different Halloween costumes as she tried to decide which one to choose.

Both the sexy pirate get up and the clingy leopard outfit revealed her curves, with Kim writing under the leopard photograph: 'This leopard was a little too sexy for the kitties! LOL.'

Decisions decisions: Kim tweeted two pictures of herself in potential Halloween outfits including a pirate costume (left) and a clingy leopard style catsuit(right)

Over in New York tonight, Hugh Jackman and wife Deborra-Lee Furness were getting in the Halloween spirit by taking their children Oscar, ten, and five-year-old Ava trick-or-treating.

Jackman was dressed in the style of a Victorian gentleman, complete with top hat and tails, while Furness looked more casual in black and white.

Their children seemed to be having fun decked out as a cowgirl and a Viking.

And Liv Tyler got into superhero mode, dressing up as Catwoman with her five-year-old son Milo, who was dressed in a red outfit with black feathers.

The pair were seen celebrating the occasion outside their town house in New York's West Village.

This was a weekend packed with Halloween madness in Hollywood, with surely more to come.

Lady Gaga smothers herself in fake blood as she transforms into gun-toting Cruella de Vil



Halloween queen: Lady Gaga strolls to a party in Belfast last night in her revealing Cruella de Vil costume, flanked by ladies dressed as dalmatians

With her larger than life image and array of outrageous outfits, every day is Halloween for Lady Gaga.

But the star went all out for the actual occasion.

The kooky singer was spotted doing her own take on dastardly Disney villain Cruella de Vil.

Black tie: Gaga brandishes a fake gun in a coat left open with fake blood plastered over her chest

Wearing a black and white wig and oversize sunglasses, Gaga's long dalmatian print coat was left open to reveal sexy black underwear with a trail of fake blood splashed over her neck and chest.

The 24-year-old was on her way to a private party in Belfast, where she is currently on tour.

She was flanked by a number of people in costume, including ladies dressed as dalmatians.

Villain: Gaga did her take on the Disney cartoon's evil Cruella

Gaga also sported a fake gun as part of her ensemble.

She has been busy touring Europe and has also found time to record a duet with Sir Elton John.

The track, called Hello Hello, will feature in a new Disney film Gnomeo and Juliet.
Cruella de Vil was made famous in the 1961 film 101 Dalmatians as the villain who kidnapped dalmatian puppies for their fur.

She was later immortalised by Glen Close in the 1996 film and the 2000 sequel 102 Dalmatians.
