Nicole Scherzinger is unoriginal, copies Cheryl Cole’s purple & orange combo


These are photos of Nicole Scherzinger during an appearance for The X Factor, in Florida. The first time I saw this hideous orange-purple trend on a real person at a real event was when Cheryl Cole made one of her first appearances in America, as one of the judges for Simon Cowell’s The X Factor. Cheryl was widely mocked for her Diane Von Furstenberg ensemble (below), but Cheryl might have gotten the last laugh as it seems everyone is jumping on the purple-orange bandwagon, from Jessica Alba, to Kim Kardashian, and now Cheryl’s X Factor replacement, Nicole Scherzinger.


So, Nicole decided to “copy” Cheryl’s orange-purple (with a twist) now that she (Nicole) has been named the replacement judge. Something about this style choice and the fact that Nicole looks increasingly like a Kardashian… well, Nicole is just rubbing me the wrong way. In addition to Nicole’s inability to find a different trend, Nicole’s former manager has also been sticking the knife into Cheryl Cole’s back in some new interviews:

Cheryl Cole may be alarmed by reports today, from Scherzinger’s former manager, claiming that Cheryl was only ever used as hype. Jeff Haddad, who managed the former Pussycat Doll for 13 years, has alleged that Nicole was always going to be on the panel. He claims that he had long discussions with Simon Cowell and Scherzinger was always a frontrunner for the judging panel job.

‘In my opinion, Simon always wanted Nicole as a judge. There was never a question that she wouldn’t get it’, Jeff told Heat Magazine. Nicole was always going to be on that judging panel and Cheryl was just being used as a cog in the wheel to cause hype and publicise the show.’

The magazine reported that Mr Haddad doesn’t recall Cheryl’s name being mentioned during talks about the role. After managing the star for over a decade, Haddad was apparently given the axe by Nicole shortly before her U.S. X Factor contract was signed, the magazine reported. But in his opinion he said that Cheryl’s accent wouldn’t have been the issue and was rather an excuse for publicity.

Regarding being allegedly fired by Nicole, he said: ‘If you serve as someone’s manager and develop their career for over a decade and that person didn’t pay you after landing the biggest TV show of their career, what does that tell you?’

An X Factor spokesperson dismissed the ex-managers claims of a publicity stunt as ‘complete and utter rubbish’.

Meanwhile, Simon Cowell has revealed that he will broadcast the footage of Cheryl Cole during her short stint on the US X Factor. Her appearances at the two audition venues she attended are said to be shown when the series is aired in September.

Cowell told Sky News: ‘We will show it. I mean it’s reality TV. There’s no point lying about it. It is what it is. It wasn’t really such a big deal as everybody thought. We have a lot of other shows. Something happened so we said, ‘Do you want to return to the UK show?’ and she said no. The we offered her the show back and I don’t think she wanted to come back… Truth is you’ve got to move on. It’s about the contestants. They’ve got no interest in us bickering.’

This is all so rude, and all it does is underline the fact that Nicole is simply a bland non-entity in the industry. The only way she makes news is when she’s copying Cheryl Cole or someone close to her is “telling all” – about Cheryl. Say what you will about Cheryl being cheesy or untalented or even disastrous, but Cheryl was watchable. People were interested in talking about her. No one gives a crap about Nicole. She’s unoriginal, uninspired and boring at best.

    This colour combination reminds me of that old cult (Bhagwan Shree Rashneesh?), the orange people.
    It looked hideous in the 80s and it looks hideous now.
    It doesn’t matter if it’s Chanel or Balenciaga or whoever the heck else.

  2. brin says:

    Why would you copy such a horrible color combo? And what’s with all these chicks SWFing someone else? Can’t anyone be original (like bellaluna)?

  3. Quest says:

    Oh gawd, this combo again. The only person I really liked with this color combo was Jennifer on that magazine cover (can’t recall the name at this time) – she’s young, gorgeous and likable, not the others.

  4. Kaboom says:

    I know men have difficulty telling more than 16 colors apart but that top looks pink to me, not orange.

  5. Marianne says:

    @Quest : The Magazine was Flare.

  6. klimp says:

    cheryls outfit is disgusting, nicoles is not. I think this post is a bit harsh

  7. gloaming says:

    @Kaiser re- your description of Nicole……..

    May I also add she’s a complete and utter dimwit.

  8. guesty says:

    Kardashian klone – check. Cheryl Cole style stealer – check. Blahhher than blah – check. Will not watch this mess @ all ever….check.

  9. Rachel says:

    I will take Cheryl over Nicole any day of the week.

  10. JOSSY says:

    It’s pink and purple. It doesnt look good. Nicole always looks nice, but Cheryl, there’s a lot of voice for concern there. They have all this money and still look like they shop at a charity shop. No thats rude, charity shops have some good stuff, maybe they shop at the local ‘I like it, it cost a lot of money and has a label.’ You cant buy taste, as we all know!

  11. Jen34 says:

    Isn’t Nicole the one Jimmy Iovine left his wife of several years for? Jimmy’s ex is Vicky Iovine who wrote those Girlfriend’s Guide books.

  12. Blue says:

    Nicole is nice to look at ( not in this particular outfit) but she has no personality.

  13. KLaw says:

    Could Nicole’s skirt be any tighter? Looks whorish. Otherwise I think she looks fine.

  14. Maritza says:

    Nicole looks great but she is missing the turquoise color.

  15. munchies says:

    as I know, Nicole is one of most down to earth and talented girls out there. I am not colorblind so I know it is pink and purle and she has this amazing figure.

    Ill pick Nicole over cheryl anyday!

  16. Julie says:

    Oh God, she’s f….ed up her face. It was better b4. My first thought was exactly what you said re: Kim. I saw resemblence immediately. It’s the cheeks she’s had done. I’m starting to think these pp are plain nuts with all the work getting done. By pp…..particularly the young ones who were pretty to begin with and can’t be happy with that and go mess it all up with fillers and implants. Gross!

  17. Lara says:

    Nicole was on the Graham Norton chatshow (in the UK)last friday, she is so dull! The woman is how old? In her 30’s but she acted like a young girl it was ridiculous. Tom Hanks was on as well and awesome!

  18. Eleonor says:

    Is that Nicole? I thought she was Kim Kardashian.

  19. StephanieMarie says:

    The shirt looks pink, not orange…
    Pink and purple isn’t much better buut it’s summer and the lighter, brighter hues are at the very least seasonally appropriate.

  20. 4Real says:

    Oh I think she nailed this look in a wretched, jealous, catty-bitch kind of way…

  21. the original bellaluna says:

    @ brin – 😀 Thanks. My imposter is back, BTW. She’s using BellaLuna – just know it’s not me.

    Why should NS be any different in her outfit choices than she was in her “music”? I don’t know if anyone else knows this, but “Doncha Wish Your Girlfriend” was originally recorded/performed by another “artist” and that version even played on the radio. It sounded very 80’s and somebody decided to go with a different sound. Enter NS & the Pussycat Dolls. UGH!

  22. Isa says:

    This is the only time I’ve seen the combo and didn’t mind it. Although I still wouldn’t be caught dead in it.

  23. brin says:

    Hi bellaluna! I know…saw your post on the Leann thread and you were not happy. Don’t worry, there’s only one (the original) bellaluna!

  24. jover says:

    Lara 17# that’s one of the many reasons today’s pop culture celebutards fail to engage the public; in addition to their meager talents they are just plain dull; untraveled, uneducated, wrapped up in themselves, most can’t even tell good stories if you watch them on talk shows (NS is hennyyoungman compared to a drip like January Jones.) I won’t be watching this either; I agree with what Keith Richards said in a recent USA today interview (paraphrasing)- I want to see people make it the old school way not get lucky on some faux talent show.

  25. Amanda G says:

    Wow…Nicole looks like a thin Kim Kardashian.

  26. londonLady says:

    Hello…Had a strong suspicion that Nicole ousted Cheryl behind the scenes and the outfit kind of confirms it for me. Why would you wear the same outfit better than to send a message. Petty or a massive oversight, either way its bad news.

  27. ELA says:

    Team Cheryl! That Nicole is so smug looking- she was after poor cheryl’s job the whole time! your right she is boring as well

  28. Nikki Girl says:

    Her face is fiercely unattractive to me. She’s a butter-face. And her music is complete crap. I don’t like her in general because she was engaged to Nick Hexum, the lead singer of 311, a band I used to be really into, and she basically tossed him aside when her star started rising. Lame.

  29. gabs says:


    She can actually SING unlike cheryl. Shes underrated. And that top is pink not orange. Her ex manager sounds like an asshole though.

  30. anon says:

    she may have copied her but at least she looks half decent and doesnt resemble chewbacca! It wasn’t the colours that peopel hated it was the crazy hair and too long 70’s flares that did it!And actually unlike cheryl, she can sing and is likeable she blew her off the screen as a replacement on the uk x factor she’ll be great on the u.s version trust me.

  31. kasper says:

    She looks like a cheap hooker.

  32. Julie0923 says:

    Cheryl has more class & style than any US Judge. I watched her when I lived in Europe. At least europeans know how to dress and this one definitely can write music and sing! Cheryl you’ll be missed. Only reason I was gonna watch US x-factor was because of you!

  33. betts says:

    I hope this bitch bombs big time. Shes such a bitch and got that Black kid from high school high fired.

    Thats so fucked up it was a job & a charcter he played in the past and has nothing to do with wwhat he could have brought to the table.

    Shes a has been that could never make it with out the pussycat dolls.Which she kicked to the curb for a solo career. GREED! & KARMA

    Thats why her album will never see the light of day.

    She couldn’t compete with gwen, fergie, britney, pink, rihanna, or nicky.

    Shes over and needs to go away.
