X Factor 2011 Kicks Off! Let The Fashion-Off Begin…

Tulisa Contostavlos, Kelly Rowland, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh all hit the red carpet on Wednesday night to celebrate the launch of the X Factor 2011 with a screening of the first show of the series at London’s O2. Tulisa Contostavlos greated the crowd, signed autographs and worked her trim figure in a gun-metal grey dress by Vivienne Westwood and killer black Mary-Jane shoes.

Ex-Destiny’s Child star and Beyoncé’s bud Kelly Rowland went for a vaguely futuristic feel too in a Versace paneled dress with on-trend black ankle boots. Is this a preview of the X-factor fashion-off to come this year? Watch this space. PS
