Bit Early For Tinsel? Diana Vickers Wears Christmas Tree Inspired Top On Stage

X Factor alumna Diana Vickers showed off some distinctly unseasonal style as she took to the stage at Manchester's Deaf Institute wearing a Christmassy tinsel tree outfit.

We feel like we can't judge DV too harshly on the Christmas tree/tinsel front, mostly because in between seeing the pictures and writing this story our iTunes played Elton John's Step Into Christmas BUT there is a secondary piece of style wisdom which definitely applies....

In the words of the MIGHTY Tim Gunn, Project Runway mentor and speaker of sense:

"If you have to ask if a clothing item is a dress or a top, it is always a top."
