Rihanna’s winning white dress on the X Factor final

She’s been on it a million times, but Rihanna always steals the show. (I honestly think James Arthur winning the X Factor is yet another “angry young man turns cheesy sellout” situation a la Matt Cardle. Good luck to him having to wait a year before he can release an album.)

I loved the toned-down Ri Ri look – a 60s-inspired white cut out dress by Alexander Wang with fantastic high strap sandals, natural make-up and that irresistible pixie crop.

Simple and stunning

Just goes to show that you really can look shamazing (whatever) in something stylish, demure and surprising. And what a contrast to the sizzlingly sexy black dress we drooled over a mere fortnight ago.

If you want to guarantee a white (cut-out) Christmas, how about…
