We promise to make a conscious effort to stay at arms length of the inevitable 'she's got the X Factor!' quips but can't promise to remain totally faithful to the cause as Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland stage a valiant battle of the LBDs as the glorified talent show returns to our TV screens. The new additions to the panel were all smiles for the sea of flashing cameras, joint at the hip by a showy BFF bond, but with both girls so fiercely dressed to impress we await the weekly 'frock off' with our (hypothetical) pens at the ready! Former member of nineties R 'n' B girl band, Destiny's Child, turned successful solo songstress, Kelly Rowland strutted around the red carpet in a figure-hugging Versace dress and (questionable) suede wedge heels. Although Kelly's footwear choice is a little more hoof than Haute, we are smitten with her trend-forward, body-con mini with a spearmint, snakeskin embellishment coiling around her svelte physique. The frivolous wave make a basic, uncomplicated design more playful and eye catching - with Kelly jumping on the colour-blocking bandwagon in such style, we have to award her our vote in the trend war tie-break. Rival and leading lady of chart topping band, N-Dubz, Tulisa, opted for a gunmetal black LBD that flaunted undeniable Vivienne Westwood traits. The angular tailoring so synonymous with Westwood lines, adheres to the craze for androgyny this season while the sweetheart neckline keeps sassy femininity in check. We can spot a Westwood from a million miles off and we salute Tulisa's tribute to the Queen of Quirk but we also can't help but notice distinct similarities to the Cheryl Cole aesthetic. Are they your own Mary Jane platform stilettos Tulisa or are you trying to fill Cheryl's? Which starlet is ticking all your boxes and who would you push the button on? Whether you're going for colour-pops or tight tailoring this season, both girls are rocking a more demure knee-length style. Take a look at our pick of today's dresses which, in our opinion, have got the LBD-Factor (sorry, we couldn't resist!).
