X-Factor judge, Kelly Rowland, gave Glamour UK an exclusive look at the fashion choices she’s made for her appearances on the UK television show.

In designer garments from Falguni & Shane, Azzedine Alaia, Julien MacDonald and Todd Lynn among others, for each outfit, Kelly gives an inside look into how she decided what to wear!

In this spectacular Roberto Cavalli that she wore to open the season, Kelly shares, “…as soon as the zip was done up, I knew it was the one. I felt like a Princess! I felt extremely comfortable and oh-so-sexy. The embellishment was just divine. Mr Cavalli sure knows how to make a girl feel absolutely sexy because the slit was in the most perfect place and it hugged my body just right. Thank you Mr Cavalli. x”

While she confesses that many of the dresses were selected at the last minute, Kelly’s choices were based on her admiration of the designer’s work or just sheer love for the piece.

Rowland wears it well, some of the dresses were tailored to fit her body perfectly…

…like this hot leather mini dress by Topshop…

"After looking at rails and rails of dresses, I just absolutely loved this leather one. I took it home with me and had it altered slightly (to fit my body perfectly) and although it was super fab after the alteration, I still felt that there was something missing, a belt. A few days later I went to Harvey Nichols with my stylists and we found a fab Azzedine Alaia belt which worked perfectly with the dress. When it all came together on Saturday night, I loved it even more! :)"
