The wow factor

First they changed their name and now they have changed their look.

The X Factor’s Little Mix looked like a different group altogether as they arrived at the UK premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 at Westfield Stratford City, in east London.

Under the watchful of eye of their mentor, Tulisa Contostavlos, the girl band hit the red carpet looking like they had already won the singing competition.

The new mature look for the girls was a departure from the slouchy clothes viewers are used to seeing them perform in on the ITV show.

19-year-old Leigh-Anne Pinnock wore a black mini dress with thick gold lining and her red hair was pulled up elegantly.

Jesy Nelson, 20, who also has red hair, opted for a black sequined play-suit which she accessorised with a large belt and over-the-knee socks.

Jade Thirlwall, who has been finding the criticism of her weight difficult to cope with, cut a trim figure in a navy blue dress with chiffon arms.

The 18-year-old is the youngest member of the band but looked full of confidence as she took to the red carpet.

Blonde Perrie Edwards, 18, wore a classic little black dress by Versace with gold detailing to complete the transformation of the group.

X Factor judge Tulisa continued the dark colour scheme by wearing a feathered skirt and a black leather top.

Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack also attended the premiere and wore a dark blue velvet play-suit with a white baby doll collar but there was no sign of her sidekick, Olly Murs.

Kelly Rowland’s three girls, Janet Devlin, Misha B and Amelia Lily attended but their mentor was in Manchester at a BBC Children In Need dinner.

Attending blockbuster movie premieres has become somewhat of a staple for X Factor contestants as last year’s finalists went to see the final Harry Potter film and got to meet Daniel Radcliffe.

Meanwhile, it was announced yesterday that X factor rejects The Risk will get another shot at fame after they were confirmed as one of the acts on the X Factor Live Tour 2012.

They will join Misha B, Marcus Collins Janet Devlin and Little Mix among others to perform at some of the country’s biggest arenas on the tour which kicks off in Manchester on February 25th.

The boy band said: ‘We are so excited to be on the tour, we just can’t believe it especially after leaving the competition early. X Factor has given us such an amazing opportunity and we just can’t wait to go out there and perform in front of all our fans.’
