Forget the singing – the real competition on this year's X Factor is between Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue.

Every week during the live shows, the two are pitted against each other in the style stakes. And the contest is heating up.

Both Cheryl and Dannii really dressed to impress at the weekend, using the X Factor as a platform to showcase some bold designs.

On Saturday night, Dannii looked beautiful and classy in a warm chocolate Gucci halter dress, which she teamed with gold drop earrings.

The Australian judge scored big style points for her choice, which perfectly personified her effortless sense of style.




In contrast to Dannii's floor-sweeping gown, Cheryl went for a glitzy thigh-skimming frock.

The fashion forward singer chose a heavily embellished dress created by husband and wife team, Falguni and Shane Peacock.

And the following evening, Cheryl wowed in a glamorous yet youthful gown.

Made by London label, BodyAmr, of whom she has long been a fan, the 28-year-old really sparkled in the long ivory and crystal number.

Dannii, meanwhile, stole the show in a one-shouldered black and white tiered creation, which she accessorised with a skinny black belt and drop earrings.

So far the consensus seems to be that the striking brunette is pulling ahead in the fashion stakes. The 39-year-old beauty – who has a clothing line, Project D – has been lauded for her sartorial selections, which have included designs by Victoria Beckham and dresses from her own range.

Dannii reportedly spends around £2,000 per live show on her wardrobe, which she selects herself, while Cheryl, 27, is said to be styled by Frank Strachan, the man known as the 'Ferrari of stylists'.

But whose ensembles do you prefer?
