X Factor 2012: Nicole spending £100k on live show 'fashion battle' with Tulisa

Tulisa and Nicole (X Factor 2012)

Nicole Scherzinger is reportedly spending £100,000 on her outfits for the X Factor live shows.

The yearly fashion battle between the show's two female judges is now on with two live shows down, and both are throwing the cash to get the best designers dressing them.

"They've been trying to scout out what each other has lined up and are being wary about what they let slip behind the scenes," a source says.

The X Factor insider reveals: "Nicole has a £100k wardrobe so Tulisa is determined to make an impression with her outfits and has drafted in £80k worth of designer dresses and shoes."

Speaking before the live shows, Nicole insisted that there wouldn't be any rivalry between her and Tulisa.

Discussing the supposed ‘fashion battles; between her and Tulisa, Nicole commented: “I don’t think there’s ever any rivalry between us. She’s got her own style, I’ve got my own style and I’m really looking forward to dressing up.

“I love fashion as well, so I’ll be showing off in that way. I can’t express myself on a stage, so I’ll express myself in what I’m wearing.”
