Britain's Got Talent pre-final party: Amanda VS Alesha
Pudsey the dancing dog may have won this years Britain's Got Talent contest, but which judge won your fashion vote? In our poll last week, almost half of you fought Amanda Holden's corner, although a fair few of you fashion critics were on the fence, claiming to love both Amanda and Alesha Dixon equally. Will the pre-final party outfits change your minds? Let's find out...
Fighting the extremely blustery winds on Friday night, the female judges took to the Banqueting House in London, both opting for dramatic full-length gowns. Amanda, who has been dressed by Australian designers Jacob Luppino and Anthony Pittorino of J'Aton Couture since the finals began, wore a nude number that will no doubt divide you as much as it has divided our office. Whilst I love the corset style bust, one shoulder tulle detail and red piping, I can't get on board with the thigh-high split, excessive tulle skirt, or the tan belt. Can you? It's a shame because the lady herself looked amazing, with her chic up-do and slick of red lipstick.
Ex Mystique singer Alesha had her own fashion demons to fight as she battled against the high winds in a delicate Julien Macdonald silk satin gown. Alesha tweeted "it was very windy!", and looked as though she wished she'd worn something else as she struggled to keep the split front skirt from revealing her modesty. It may have worked much better in the flesh, but on a wind swept red carpet, Alesha looked out of her depth in the beautiful silver gown. The top half starts out nicely (I love the beaded leaf embroidery and sheer panel) but from the belt down, the dress just doesn't have the elegant tone it possessed on the catwalk. Despite the hit and miss elements of Amanda's look, the actress was able to save face with her gorgeous hair and makeup - unfortunately Alesha's harsh bun and orange lipstick did nothing to help her in my opinion.
It's time to cast your final votes. Who do you think came out on top?
