It's makeover time! 

Meet the official X Factor stylist Laury Smith

The first live show is almost here and our team of experts have been busy working their magic on our budding popstars'n'strels. So, without further ado – meet one part of the trendsetting trio that makes the magic happen. We give you super-stylist Laury Smith.Ta-dah!

Laury Smith has some ay-maz-ing experience that'll come in handy when transforming our contestants into glam-tastic pop stars. 

Not only has she worked as a Fashion Editor for one of the biggest selling men’s magazines, FHM, she has regularly contributed to L’Uomo Vogue, GQ and Oyster.

Her impressive CV doesn’t end there though – this fabulous fashionista has also styled celebrities such as Lady GaGa, Kanye West, Britney Spears and the Pussycat Dolls – amazeballs or what? We can't wait to cast our beady eyes over the contestants' awe-inspiring new looks.

Laury informs us, “My fashion mantra is ‘bigger shoulders, shorter skirts, higher heels and never wear one bracelet when you can wear ten.’ I’m all about the theatrics and costume; low key doesn’t register in my style-directory. 

"The contestants will be looking outrageously, arrestingly glamorous after I’ve finished with them. They’re all great; Janet looks so ethereal and Amelia is a bona fide rock chick. 

"Johnny will be fun to go to town on - I envision that he’ll be game for a laugh and up for anything! On stage I’ll be reviving the decadent 40s, the swinging 60s and 70s glam by using leather, lace and faux fur."
