Despite her tearful exit from the talent show on Sunday evening (6 December) Lauren showed that she was already looking to the future as she gave a thumbs up to the paps.
Although she might not be living the pop star dream on the X Factor stage from now on, Lauren still dressed the part in an uber glam outfit that we wouldn't mind magically appearing in our own wardrobes!
Lauren teamed a silky draped shirt with slim fitting black trousers and a furry gilet for a warm layer that still showed off her ensemble, completing her look with the ultimate celeb staple of the moment - statement knee high boots. Obviously.
Since this series of X Factor kicked off, Lauren has been a favourite with both the judges and viewers, with Simon even whipping out his favourite phrase at the first audition where he told her: "I didn't just like that, I loved it! Seriously, I thought that was absolutely bl***y fantastic. Do you know what I really like about you? You have no idea how good you are."
However it was also Simon who played a part in ending Lauren's journey on the semi-final night, which saw Louisa Johnson, Che Chesterman and Reggie 'n' Bollie earn a place in the finals.
Head judge Simon sent the vote to deadlock when he failed to choose between either Lauren or Che. Speaking on Xtra Factor he explained why he put the decision in the public's hands, saying:
"I could have made an argument for both of them. Che was better on the night but I took into account how much I liked her, basically, and I thought the fairest thing was to see who the public put through.
"Whatever happens, it will be a great final and all three have a shot of winning this. I'm delighted. I think they all deserve their spot in there. These three each had a great night last night, put them in front of 10,000 people next week and we'll see what happens."
