Who is a style queen and who should be taken away by the fashion police this week?

Best dressed: Kelly Rowland

Pity poor Frankie Cocozza. The big-haired big mouth knew that he couldn't sing, but believed that the secret to X Factor success was courting controversy with a capital C.

He wasn't wrong, he just got his words mixed up. C stands for clothing, obviously...

I mean, it's not as if we're watching the show for Gary Barlow's seemingly acidic but merely anodyne put-downs. As if.

We're just interested in the ultimate fashionista fall-out between Tulisa and former VBF Kelly Rowland.

We think that Kelly might be winning... The Destiny's Child star has been seriously upping her game in the past couple of weeks with a little help from her friends at Alberta Ferretti and Balmain, not to mention her idols Diana Ross and Donna Summer.

She's happy to splash the cash, reportedly spending €60,000 on her X Factor wardrobe. Beyonce's pal looks pretty fab off-duty too, thanks to this full-length pink gown which shows off her figure.

A perfect blend of demure sexiness.

Worst dressed: Sophie Dahl

Oh Sophie, just what were you thinking?

We know you're all loved up with musician hubby Jamie Cullum and your adorable baby daughter. And you've got a delicious new career cooking your favourite recipes.

It's all so sweet. But it's not an excuse to forget your past.

You're a model, dammit. You're out at a red carpet event.

You're surrounded by your former catwalk colleagues including Eva Herzigova and Yasmin Le Bon, who've just been awarded fashion icon status, and you decide to come out wearing, just what exactly?!

We can appreciate that you don't want to overshadow Eva and Yasmin.

But don't worry, there's absolutely no chance of that.

Flat shoes, a nondescript shapeless back dress and childish curls might, just might, be suitable for a children's party.

And Sophie? Next time, go easy on the blusher. Right now, it looks like you've been over-indulging on the cooking sherry.
