The Voice is a let down in the fashion stakes

It’s been a long wait, but we’re finally seeing what sense of style and fashion the stars of the hit show The Voice would display. Our own UK version of the international franchise has kept us guessing, in large part because outfits didn’t change at all during the audition stages.

Now the show has hit the live sing-offs it’s all a bit of an anticlimax as far as fashion goes. Both the performers and hosts gone for safety first in terms of styling which is a bit of a shame as The Voice could be just as much a showcase for fashion as it is for music.

Some, like Jessie J claim she is there for the music, not her fashion sense. When we see her simple styles and pale colours, we can only take her at her word. The show’s style stakes are saved by host Holly Willoughby who takes up the challenge; living up to her queen of cleavage status and earning her ‘Willoughbooby’ nickname.

Willoughby was dressed in a Suzanne Neville designed lace frock. The formal bridal designer custom made the dress for her, and it didn’t disappoint, setting a tough standard for the contestants to meet.

In a surprise move, the show’s stylist didn’t dress everyone in a black size ten party dress.

Ruth took a risk with her trousers and floral printed suit and Francis appealed in her tutu. But overall the style impressed as much for its variety as it did for any one contestant
