X Factor judge Tulisa has a windy moment after a gust lifts her short dress… as head honcho Gary Barlow cheered after Jubilee triumph
14:00 GMT, 6 June 2012
Tulisa is not having the greatest week fashion wise.
Yesterday she wore a garish mismatched outfit to the Manchester auditions, and today her short skater style dress threatened to leave her somewhat exposed when a gust of wind tussled with her frock.
The X Factor auditions are being held at
Event City in Manchester with Mel B as the Guest Judge.
Mind the gust: Tulisa's short printed minidress threatened to derail her in the fashion stakes for the second day running as she had a windy moment in Manchester
Cheese: Tulisa posed up for fans as she inched her way down the X Factor carpet in sky high platform courts
Tulisa looked somewhat unsteady in her stilettos too as she made her way down the red carpet in Manchester today.
But she gamely smiled on as she met and greeted fans who had queued up to meet the X Factor judges.
The panel were joined by former Spice Girl Mel B who opted not to go for the leggy look today by many of the guest judges.
Instead of a miniskirt or tiny dress she went for khaki satin trousers and heels as she arrived at Manchester's Event City.
However she did have some flesh on display with a tight, matching, vest top.
Green and lean: Mel B went too tight and too shiny in a khaki green number
Fresh from his triumphant handling of the Queen's Jubilee Concert, judge Gary Barlow arrived to lead the panel.

him Sir Gary, too. The crowd then got behind him, chanting, 'Get Gary
Arise Sir Gary Barlow arrives for the X Factor auditions after his triumphant involvement in the Diamond Jubilee concert
Auditions started late yesterday as Gary didn't arrive in Manchester
until 3am after the concert, and auditions were started at late so he
could get a bit of extra rest.
Gary said about Monday's concert: 'It was an amazing day – hopefully for the audiences at home watching and everyone there.
'Not only were the acts having a great time front of stage, the whole of the backstage area were having a good time as well.
But Gary seemed a little perturbed at outlandish singer Grace Jones's hula-hooping performance.
If it ain't broke: Caroline Flack wears pink shorts today, and Louis Walsh looks slightly rumpled in a casual jacket and jeans
She said: 'I thought why was she wearing a hula hoop and more to the
point what was she going to do with it! I thought it was absolute
genius that she sung the whole song with it on.
'It was an amazing day for our country yesterday.'
Barlow has won acclaim for his
handling of the royal concert which was staged outside Buckingham
Palace, with a bill featuring Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Tom Jones, and
featured Madness playing on the palace roof.
He said the Monday night show was 'the biggest night of my life.'
'It's going to take something pretty special to top it,' he added.
There have been reports that he may be recognised officially for his handling of the showpiece event.
