The Two Britney Spears Looks Everyone's Loving Right Now

Britney Spears is ending the year quite fashionably. That is, at least according to PEOPLE.com readers.

The superstar has landed herself in not one, but two spots in our top 10 best dressed list, which is powered by your votes. Both looks feature black dresses, but they’re very different from each other.


Currently, the X Factor judge is sitting pretty in the number-five slot with the black below-the-knee sheath, gold collar necklace and glitzy sandals she wore to the show’s finale party. (You can see the outfit from every angle here.)

She’s also ranked at number seven in a black bustier gown with sheer panels, plus patent pumps, which she slipped into for the X Factor‘s final night.

The week’s not over yet, though, so Spears still has the chance to do what no other star has and nab three spots on the list! Tell us: Which of the two outfits do you prefer on Spears?

What's So Risky About Khloé Kardashian Odom's 'X Factor' Gig?

Live hosting is one first Khloé Kardashian Odom has tackled on X Factorbut as it turns out, working on the show has given her many a fashion first, too.

“It’s fun to try [different styles] on X Factor,” the star tells PEOPLE. “It gives me a different platform to try looks compared to a reality show because we film [Keeping Up With the Kardashians] 12 to 18 hours a day, so you have to stay in the same outfit.”

Understandably, she often grows tired of what she’s wearing while working those long hours on her family’s E! show. “You might get over [your look] or be like, ‘My head hurts from this ponytail!'” she jokes. “But you can’t take it out [until we wrap filming for the day].”

Like most people, Odom has mornings where she just doesn’t feel like getting glam, either. “We film our show seven days a week, and during production season you don’t have a day off,” she shares. “You’re tired, so sometimes I’m like, ‘I don’t care about doing my hair today.'”

X Factor is another story, though: Since the show airs live twice per week, Odom has been able to try trends — like oversized buns, dramatic shoulders, bejeweled headpieces and colored leather (above) — that she may not have worn before.

Bold brows, blonde bangs, peek-a-boo blazers: Demi Lovato and Britney Spears gave us lots to look at on the X Factor live show Wednesday night.

Lovato sported those bold eyebrows her makeup artist promised not long ago, plus a sophisticated brocade jacket, black blouse and new brunette locks, while Spears showcased her blonde bangs and pretty waves, Monika Chiang earrings and a revealing jacket that gave us a peek at her striped bra.

We were torn about the looks — Too much? Not quite right? — so we took to Twitter to get your thoughts, and you gave us some mixed reviews:

Demi Lovato Is Brunette — Again!

Nov/01/2012 at 09:00 AM ET

Demi Lovato Brunette Hair X Factor

So much for that promise!

After telling Kelly Ripa that she wasn’t planning to change her blonde hair, Demi Lovato debuted a new brunette ‘do on Wednesday night’s first X Factor live show. The singer kept her bangs, which she cut this summer, and wore her hair straight and down.

“It’s coming to fall and it’s harder to maintain a healthy skin tone, and when you’re going into winter it just sucks out the color of everyone,” Lovato told reporters after Thursday night’s X Factor. “So I tend to go dark during the holidays; it’s a nice contrast. There’s one thing about being blonde and pale, but I would rather be dark and pale.”

Lovato, a natural brunette, has tried a lot of looks in the past 12 months, from pink hair and blue tips to blonde locks and a bright-red ‘do.

“She’s a chameleon — she can do anything with her hair and makeup,” her makeup artist, Jill Powell, recently told PEOPLE. “She likes to change her look a lot — it’s fantastic. She embraces new trends.”

Lovato’s new look comes as a bit of a surprise — but one we’re definitely loving. Tell us: Do you prefer Lovato as a brunette or a blonde?
