This isn't a look we're used to seeing from X Factor judge and N Dubz front lady, Tulisa Contostavlos, but we think it's working for her. We weren't all too sure about her extreme change to blonde, but in this setting, with this styling (and lighting), this week's LOOK magazine is showing us a new side to the formally feisty female.

Seen in the photoshoot, Tulisa sports a pair of formal eveningwear gowns complete with pin up girl style hair and make up and glamorous accessories.

Tulisa says, "Everything goes great in my career but my personal life has just been s***. Fame and money - I don't give a c**p about all that stuff. Yeah it's amazing, yeah I'm grateful for those things - they make life easier - but if you could put me in a little house in the countryside with a picket fence, a husband, dogs and a family where I can feel love and happiness, I would trade that in a second.'"
