Nicole Scherzinger on the X Factor final

Nicole Scherzinger may not have been the winning judge on this year's X Factor, but she certainly triumphed in the sartorial stakes.

This year, Nicole exclusively revealed her X Factor wardrobe choices to us every week before anyone else, and we loved every single look.

The Pussycat Dolls singer kicked things off with a hot pink, mullet hem dress and glamourous updo, while the following week she treated us to some voluminous curls and figure-hugging blue sequinned dress.

Nicole was loving sequins on this year's show, and one of our favourite sparkly looks was definitely this deep red, floor length number oy London Fashion Week designer Maria Grachvogel.

Not forgetting of course, her beautiful bespoke Julien Macdonald dress that she wore for the final.

Nicole's make-up artist gave us a few insider secrets, too, letting us in on what it's like to work with the Pussycat Dolls singer. It sounds like a lot of fun to us.

Nicole also exclusively told us that she was more than just a mentor to her girls on the show, she was their stylist, too.

'I’ll add things or take them away,' Nicole said of the X Factor contestants' outfits. 'It’s the same for their hair and make-up. I’m very detail-orientated when it comes to their looks. I trust our team and they give me what they have in mind but then I’ll work from there.'

Whether or not Nicole will be back at the judge's table next year, we reckon 2014 is going to be another stylish year for her...
