Alexa was exported to New York to present the "It's On With Alexa Chung" show for MTV. While there, she won over the US style pundits with her quirky style and kept us on side by staying true to the formula that won her our approval in the first place.


Having played the most important woman in fashion history, Audrey Tautou's armory of red carpet looks for the promotion of "Coco Before Chanel" was bound to be Chanel-heavy and very impressing indeed. It was.

Yes, we watched for the musical competition but, if we're honest, Cheryl's bi-weekly fashion moments on "X Factor" played a big part in our viewing loyalty. Her choice of edgy designers – including Marios Schwab, Giles, Richard Nicoll and David Koma -- earned her some serious cool kudos.

And then there was Dannii, who was finally acknowledged as a contestant in the "X Factor" fashion stakes. Her hair – and her weekly get-ups from designers including Osman, Aurelio Costarella, J'Aton Couture and Donna Karan – kept us glued to our screens on Saturday and Sunday nights.
