Tulisa Has The X Factor In Strappy Blue Party Dress

New X Factor judge Tulisa Constavlos has swapped her street style for a more sophisticated look since it was announced she’d taken over from Cheryl Cole on the ITV talent show.

Taking a temporary break from her N-Dubz music gigs, Tulisa has blossomed into a fashion role model and was recently photographed enjoying a night at London’s Movida nightclub in a strappy blue dress.

It just goes to show that her bandmate Dappy’s bobble hats held her back. They dominated every band photo, offset slightly by their third bandmate Fazer’s baseball caps, and it’s only when she’s on her own that you can how well Tulisa dresses up. Go, girl!

The geometric lines of this dress are so now – Tulisa is right on trend

However, just because she’s found her fashion style, it doesn’t mean she’s conforming in all aspects of her life.

Very can reveal that in an upcoming interview on David Walliams’ Sky 1 talk show, Tulisa criticizes her X Factor predecssor Cheryl Cole. Controversial!

Tulisa’s said she did not wish to be known for ‘being a WAG’ and said she was keen to establish her own identity, she wouldn’t just sit in Cheryl’s seat without doing something new.

And Very hears the 22-year-old star, who has an on-off relationship with her bandmate Fazer is mistrustful when it comes to men saying that 80% of men cheat. Sounds like someone is bitter!

We can’t imagine anyone wanting to cheat on Tulisa when she’s looking as hot as she does right now. Surely a strappy dress like the one she wore to Movida would have had men dribbling after her.

If you want to test it out and get some attention, you can get a similar dress at Very. The Firetrap jersey bodycon dress is a gorgeous royal blue and hugs the top half before opening up into a tulip skirt – great for pear types. It’s also in the sale at £46, a saving of £19 from £65.

The Fearne Cotton one shoulder bustier dress is attention grabbing because of it’s stunning purple colour and the stiking shoulder strap fits with the geometric trend. It’s half price at £29.50 instead of £59

If you prefer a lighter blue shade the Motel backless bodycon dress has straps like Tulisa’s outfit plus a gorgeous stripe design on the back

To enhance the shape of the dress, keep accessories minimal. All you need to finish the look is some silver shoe boots like the Moda in Pelle kalib shoeboots that are embellished with stunning studs

Carry your purse and phone in style with a metallic bag to match the shoes. The Lipsy oversize metallic snake hobo bag is  perfect for a glamorous night out

X Factor returns to our TV screens at the start of September – exciting!
