THE WINNERS STORY.

The end is here, the show has come to a close, the final curtain has dropped. The X Factor 2011 winners are LITTLE MIX! The first group to ever win the competition, we take a moment to step back through the last ten weeks of the competition and check out exactly how the Style Team developed Little Mix throughout each of the live shows. 

It's been a long road since the four solo artists Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Ann Pinnock, Jesy Nelson and  Jade Thirlwall first auditioned for the competition. Take a look below at Little Mix through the stages, as they progressed from X Factor hopefuls to X Factor style stars.


THE STYLE EVOLUTION OF MISHA B.

As she leaves the competition we reflect back on the style evolution of the iconic Misha B. Her look as powerful as her voice, who better to comment on the looks from the shows than the X Factor Style Team stylist, Laury Smith. "I absolutely love Misha B, apart from being the loveliest girl, she was a dream to dress and work with. She loved pushing all boundaries, as I do. I love thinking of fresh ideas and new looks and she certainly made things more fun creatively. I loved the paper dress for the opening show, I think that worked so well with the song, the staging and it was original. I also loved the record dress from last weekend. I think it has been varied and visually strong each week".
"Her style is definitely a strong part of her and always has been, as she is totally individual and her style and music defines her. I do love her as a person, she was always a gem and wanted to be involved creatively with the process and was always appreciative of everything which is always great. Also it is always fun to have someone who can wear practically anything, she is confident in herself and her body which makes a difference. She loves experimenting, it's good to try things, not everything is going to always work, but it's refreshing to meet people who are up for being outrageous and want to be different".
"I watched Misha B at the auditions and noted she had a strong sense of style and confidence is a really important ingredient. So it was something we could always build on. She will grow and grow. Bigger, stronger and more original. I wish her all the luck and can't wait to see what's next for her!"
