During her Girls Aloud days, Cheryl Cole (nee Tweedy) was a typical WAG. Her signature style? Cropped tops, heavy make-up, corn rows and plenty of sparkle. She even turned up to court in bad bootcut jeans. Fast-forward a few years - and a fair few makeovers, especially for that X Factor judging job - and Cheryl's considered a style icon. She showcases new designers (David Koma, Georges Chakra) and, although she's been slightly off the radar of late after splitting from ex-husband, Ashley Cole for a second time, when it comes to dressing for a night out with Nicola Roberts, Chez always picks fashion-forward, individual pieces. Remember that Atelier Versace red textured dress? A recent stint in LA has also done great things for her off-duty wardrobe. She's ditched the skin tight dresses and super-high heels in favour of relaxed separates from Wildfox worn with jeans. This girl is now every inch the perma-polished A-lister.
