The latest run of X Factor UK auditions has just started, so get ready for paparazzi pics a-plenty as the judges / mentors (including daily guest judges while ITV decides on a replacement for Kelly Rowland) tour the country looking for the next big thing in pop.

Last year's winning mentor Tulisa Contostavlos is returning to the show this year, and she dressed for the gorgeous London weather (no, really) in one of her now trademark skater mini dresses. This girl knows what shape she likes and isn't going to change her look regardless of trends!

She did eschew her favourite high street haunts (Lipsy, Ted Baker etc) for a cool London-based designer label, though. Her dress is by design duo (and identical twins) Felder Felder. The printed silk gauze skater dress, is available at Browns for £595. It has a cut-out back and fluted skirt with a lining that puffs it out to give Tulisa her beloved skater shape.

Tulisa finished the look by adding studded ankle boots by Kandee Shoes (now sold out) and a studded belt to add a bit of toughness - we're not sure about mixing silver and gold studs though!
