He's Fly: Dermot O'Leary in Hardy Amies

If any of you have been following the X Factor this last season you must have surely noticed how its host, Dermot O'Leary, has really taken an incredibly stylish turn in terms of wardrobe. He has worn a suit for every Saturday and Sunday episode and managed to keep the outfits very interesting thanks to the colour combinations and the diversity of spotless cuts. His two suits for the two finale shows, however, caught my attention even more than normal. Something that seemed only obvious once I learnt both of them were by my favourite Saville Row house —Hardy Amies. For the Saturday show Dermot donned one of the blue suits from the house's SS11 collection (which I was lucky to see live during LFW and which will become a must in its entirety). The outfit screamed contemporary and cool through the clean lines of the Row's staple tailor. On Sunday, Dermot went for a more black tie choice from the FW10 collection. This was a more classic choice yet the shorter and thiner lapels made the tuxedo jacket more current. I fell head over heels for the stunning bow tie and the perfect pocket square. Take a look at Hardy Amies' collection on their website and stay tuned for their SS11 look book!
