Last night was the season finale of The X Factor, and while yea, it was great to see the One Direction boys (who are we kidding?? We were SALIVATING at their navy-on-navy mixed texture satin and jersey ensembles), we have to give a big hand to our GIRLS: Demi Lovato and Britney Spears. These ladies have been turning it OUT all season long. From Brit's bodycons to Demi's dabbling in bold brows, these two have made this a season of style and beauty DOMINATION. *'round the world snap* So you know they had to have one last trick of each of their sleeves come finale time. Both ladies capitalized on one of the runway's hottest trends: futuristic lines and mirror symmetry.
Demi hit the step-and-repeat in a gorgeous metallic mini with geometric cut-outs in strategic places all over the bodice. In keeping with Lovato's trend of single-handedly keeping TopShop in business, her finale dress was also from the British retailer. A limited edition piece available (for now) for $360.00, it's certainly not a steal per se, but for how striking and interesting it is, we think it's worth every penny. This coolest part, in our opinion is the gradient from vibrant turquoise at the top of the shoulders all the way to a light copper at the hem. Very Jetsons meets Jeremy Scott. Also, girl's nails were on point.

Where Demi brought the youth, Britney illustrated how the futuristic trend can also be interpreted in a sophisticated, black-tie steez. Brit wore a black Bottega Veneta gown. The majority of the dress was constructed of luscious black velvet, but the bodice is covered in angular, silhouette-glorifying panels of leather, sheer mesh, and silver satin. The effect is very future goth, and we're OB. SESSED. with it. Whose X Factor finale look is your fave: Demi's or Britney's?
