Kelly and Tulisa's X Factor
We're totally hooked on X Factor here at Lipsy, it's our ultimate weekend TV fix. From the auditions, right through to boot camp and now the live shows! We think Tulisa and Kelly are doing an amazing job mentoring the groups and the girls. They look stunning week after week on the judging panel in their hot dresses that steal the show and with Lipsy on their must have fashion wardrobe list we've pulled out their Lipsy looks to get their star style.
They represent the ultimate in girl power and we caught up with Kelly Rowland to get her Celeb fashion low down and some VIP tips for the season. "I love the British high street and love Lipsy; everyone has such great style in the UK." She continued, "Always be comfortable in what you are wearing otherwise it will show."
Ever the trend setter, Kelly nails the season essentials every time and with the popular catwalk look for Beauty focused on loaded lashes for A/W, Kelly confessed to being a huge fan of the thick lashes trend. "I love false eyelashes and can't leave the house without a pair these days! They've turned into my must-have essential."
Get Kelly's Look with Motel's strap bust dress and bag Tulisa's off duty essentials and red carpet Lipsy look.

The Lipsy girls are huge RIRI fans and when we heard Rihanna was in concert we just had to grab VIP tickets to watch the superstar in action!! From Manchester to Liverpool, and Glasgow to London, the good girl gone bad is set to put on a bunch of spellbinding shows that we can't wait to see......
Famous for her sexy curves, seductive lyrics and a trendy must-have wardrobe, we're so excited that we've pulled out some of our Rihanna lookey likey's with Lipsy picks to get the Barbadian singers jaw dropping style. Not shy of popping some colour, we're opting for bright hues for nails to draw the right attention, complimented with a fresh face, dark seductive eye liner and rouge lips.
Ideal for a girly chic take on the red carpet, Rihanna's loves a show stopping cream dress for her appearances. Paired with layers of necklaces and a hair decoration to complete her look, Rihanna nods to the White Trend with this style. To show off her glam rock side RiRi likes to keep us guessing but, more often than not she goes for an all black party dress with fish net or patterned tights to show off her F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S pins on and off the stage.

Jessie J steals the show!
The MOBO Awards were the biggest night of the year for the urban music scene this week and all the stars came out to walk the red carpet in their show stopping looks whilst the nominees pulled out all the stops in their high fashion outfits. Variations of jewel encrusted LBD's were the popular choice with celeb's including Dionne Bromfield, Ms Dynamite, Brooke Vincent and Alexis Jordan all opting for the classic wardrobe staple.
Jessie J was the star of the show bagging four MOBO's including Best Album, Best New Comer, Best Song for 'Do it like a dude' and Best UK Act. We totally agree here at Lipsy HQ, each award is so well deserved Jess and we love your sassy style and girl power attitude!
Other acts to follow in Jessie's winning streak included Tinie Tempah for Best Hip Hop, Adele for Best Soul Act and Boyz II Men for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

Top of the Tops
Thankfully this season is all about pairing that statement top with your short shorts, pencil skirt or tailored trousers to make the A/W11 just a little more fun. It's the designer choice for an instant show stopping ensemble where the styling possibilities are endless and the range spans from print to block jewel tones. It's never been easier to mix and match your shirts and tops. Tucked in or out, this season they prove to be the hardest working fashion items in your winter wardrobe.
For a strong catwalk look to wear in the office opt for a bow pleated blouse to show you mean business and for the day, alternate between your seasonal dresses and a fitted low waist pencil skirt, teamed with a printed fan shirt to make an IT girl impression like the model in the Chloe show. When the night falls, get Lipsy's signature sparkle style with an embellished look to party in the city. Keep it jewel encrusted to add value to your outfit and sheer if you dare to bring sexy back for the season.
Tops require the clutch bag for your outfit this A/W, so make like Malin Akerman and ditch the oversized shopper style for this trend and carry a leopard print bag to finish your look in high fashion. Nail the trends by keeping your buys loose and floaty for a feminine approach and check out our must have picks for some style inspiration.

Celebs At The Shows
The shows are drawing to a close this week for the S/S 12 collections across the fashion capitals with Paris ending on Wednesday. The Lipsy HQ girls have been looking at our best dressed celebs to get front row access to the shows and what they wore in their high fashion glory.
Not content with supermodels showing us how it's done the stars put on their own exhibition of the trends with their pap snapping looks. Across the cities London and New York came up trumps with the stars opting for bodycon styles to make a statement and earth tones as the favourite for hues. Jennifer Love Hewitt popped up with a red alert bandeau dress for a figure hugging, sexy pick and Beyonce complimented her baby bump with this Black Swan inspired skirt teamed with a leather waistcoat cinched at the waist for an hour glass shape. Top model Jessica Stam kept it glam rock with her LBD and softened her outfit with fresh faced make up and minimal accessories for an individual take on the classic trend.
Keeping it London style, Girls Aloud band member Nicola Roberts showed off her two piece tailored daytime look with her red boots and naturally fab red hair. Whilst, staying true to her sweet chic style Eliza Doolittle took advantage of the good weather and rocked a pair of red short shorts and a bandeau white top to salute the White trend for this season.

Turn heads with these stunning party dresses. Extra detailing makes these dresses stand out from the crowd. We love Katie Holmes' black and white outfit, minimal accessories focus attention on the dress whilst varying textures make sure your dress is the one that everyone is talking about.
Another option is to add white accessories to a black dress or vice versa, this creates a really clean look, perfect for a night out. Try the collar front dress or our crinkle bodycon and add one of our black clutches to complete the look. Monochrome is back!
