Tess or Nicole - Who is better dressed?

This year's series of Strictly Come Dancing and X Factor are well under way, with just over a month to go until the eagerly-anticipated final shows. It's no secret that Strictly and X Factor are TV rivals, competing to get the most viewers every weekend. Forget the eatings war, if the shows were being judged for their fashion credentials, who would win< Let's look back over the series so far and decide who has boasted the best wardrobe, X Factor's Nicole Scherzinger or Strictly's Tess Daly.
Early on in this year's X Factor series, Nicole wore a dramatic red dress with an asymmetrical hem that cascaded down to the floor at the back, but was short at front , stopping the dress from being too conventional. Nicole accessorised the dress with matching shoes and long, gold earrings, wearing her hair in a simple up-do to show off the earring and the interesting neckline of the dress.

Tess Daly also wore a brightly coloured dress in the third week of Strictly Come Dancing. Tess went for a red floor-length dress with a high neckline, which featured a sheer panel of material at the front. like Nicole, Tess stuck to one piece of statement jewellery, layering a chunky gold choker on top.

Throughout the season of Strictly, Tess has favoured structured dresses with a below-the-knee hemline or longer, which are a little bit boring and not always flattering for her figure, like the tightly fitting Victoria Beckham dress she wore at the very beginning of the series. The high neckline did nothing for her figure. Strictly a no no.

Nicole on the other hand, has been more adventurous with her wardrobe, wowing audiences each week with a succession of beautiful, daring dresses. For Disco Week, Nicole wore a stunning blue dress from couture designer George Chakra, teasing her hair into a Diana Ross-style do to complete the look.

It is impossible to tell which final will put in the most viewers, but X Factor beats strictly hands down in the style stakes. Tess has played it too safe and simple, structured dresses can't compete with Nicole's high-fashion wardrobe.
