Check it out!
Alexandra arrived the venue for the finale, in a pretty black-and-white frock.
The dress by budding design label Ms Makor, which features a black sequined neckline and a crisscross black-and-white print skirt, accentuated her silhouette.
She accessorized with silver earrings, gold and diamond bracelets. Although we can’t see her shoes, a pair of black peep toes will work, or which colour will you prefer?
Look 2 – Iconic Invanity
To perform Hallelujah with the finalists, Alexandra rocked an embellished multi-coloured peplum top by Nigerian design label Iconic Invanity.
She styled the sleeveless, round neck top, with black shorts to show-off her long legs. For accessorizing, Alexandra took a simple approach – opting for diamond stud earrings, gold and silver bracelets, a gold cocktail ring and a pair of brown sandals.
Soft wavy locks, pink lipstick and red nail polish completed the look.
Look 3 – Iconic Invanity
Once again she took to the stage in another Iconic Invanity piece.
This time, it was a grey embellished knee length frock with pink-and-green floral detailing.
Her look was styled with a gold bracelet and cocktail ring, and a pair of silver heels. She kept her hair the same, but opted for neutral lipstick.
So…BellaNaija Style Watchers, which is your favourite look?
Alexandra had a quick chat with Glo team, read the interview;
How does it feel being in Nigeria?
I feel really great. My best friend lives in Nigeria, Abuja to be precise. When I announced that I was in Nigeria, even though I’m part Jamaican and Irish, many felt I’m a Nigerian because of the enthusiasm I have for this country. Nigerians are lovely.
Tell Us a bit about your X Factor Experience?
I went in for the X Factor twice. The first time was when I was 16 years old. I didn’t win, because they told me I needed more experience.
After that, my mum was very supportive making sure that I attended as many open mic sessions as possible, and when I eventually went for the competition the second time, I won.
What is your perception of the Nigerian Music industry?
I think the music industry down here is really doing great. It is fantastic, for me, I always love Afromusic. I am Jamaican, Indian and Irish. I’ve already recorded a song with Dr. Sid, and I hope to work with other Nigerian artistes because I’m a fan of Wizkid, D’banj, Tiwa Savage and I’ll also like to meet Burna Boy.
What do you think singles you out for the UK X Factor Top Prize?
I don’t really know what singled me out, but I think it’s just about me being me. I sing from the bottom of my heart.
As an X Factor alumni, what’s your advice to the top 3 contestants on how to stay relevant in the music industry?
I think the real work starts from after the show. I will advise them to try to touch people with their music. They just have to be themselves.
Would you ever Retire from Music?
No. I plan to take a break sometime in the future to have kids, but I’m just 25, so you should get used to seeing me around for a long time to come.
