Get Dannii Minogue’s Effortless Elegance

X factor judge Danni Minogue is proof that looking stylish does not have to take lots of time.

The busy working mother barely has a moment to spare with her own fashion and perfume range, tv commitments and mentoring some of her former X Factor contestants on their music careers.

But when she attended a beauty product launch in London celebrity hangout The  Hospital Club, Ms Minogue looked amazing in a figure hugging black and white cocktail dress.

Danni’s done her fashion homework and her outfit gets gold stars for being pretty yet practical to wear for two main reasons.

Firstly, black is a clever colour as it’s slimming colour, which emphasises Dannii’s petite frame in a streamline way.

Secondly, having a contrasting colour around the sides and waist also has a slimming effect as people’s eyes are drawn to the colour of the dress rather than the actual shape of the figure underneath. Plus the white on the sides lengthens her legs, thus making her frame look leaner rather than wider. No wonder she’s smiling!

Very can exclusively reveal that Dannii’s under pressure to keep up a glamorous front as she waits to hear if she has been chosen as a judge for the next series of the UK version of X Factor.

She jetted to the UK from her new base in Australia especially for talks with ITV producers about her future on the show. With chief judge Simon Cowell due to quit to focus on the American series and Cheryl Cole set to join him, there’s a possibility the talent show may have a completely new panel of judges.

Dannii may have won the show with her acts Leon Jackson in 2007 and Matt Cardle last year but her future is uncertain.

The only thing that is for sure is there’s no way Dannii will have difficulty finding another fabulous job as she’s looking incredible right now.

What do you think to Dannii’s dress sense? If you like it then you can copy her style with a black and white Lipsy embellished stripe 2 in 1 dress

Or the Coleen sequin ruffle one shoulder dress is well-fitted, monochrome and perfect for a party

The Teatro cornelli trim dressis chic and ladylike – just like the new Dannii Minogue

Such an elegant dress works well with a simple but stunning shoe like the Love Label charlize platform court shoes

All you need to finish the look is some slinky bangles – just £10 from Very

Good luck, Dannii, we know you’ll be successful!
