Style shrinks: Does Little Mix's Perrie Edwards still have the X Factor?
Gemma Hayward: Round sunglasses, peroxide hair, stuffy top-knot… she's got the pop-star signature look covered. How very un-original.
Hugh Montgomery: Oh dear, as Cowell would say, you did not make this look your own, Perrie. And no, do not Just Dance, you are most certainly not on the Edge of Glory…
Gemma: She should have followed the washing instructions on those fishnets; they've shrunk as small as shorts.
Hugh: When future generations reflect on the year 2012, they will primarily ask, "Why the fishnet Spanx?"
Gemma: I'm certain that no one over the age of seven should wear superhero branding, not even pop stars and not even in an "ironic" way.
Hugh: I mean, really: not a single stylist has thought to inform her of Batman's devalued cultural currency vis-à-vis The Dark Knight's reactionary political undertones?
Gemma: The boots are fine in theory, but worn without tights, they give the unfortunate appearance of cankles.
Hugh: Glad to see our Little Mixer chunking up and jumping aboard the 1990s revival. It's totally En Vogue. Or is that Salt-n-Pepa?
