How To Get Cheryl’s Cannes Glamour

Cheryl Cole is racking up the air miles jetting between glamorous events in countries around the world!

The pop singer turned X Factor megastar flew to the USA to record the first episode of the exciting new talent show and was there just one week before flying to Cannes. She’ll be in France less than 5 days before heading back Stateside – what a way to go for a long weekend!

So what brought Ms Tweedy to Cannes? Very can reveal there are two reasons. Firstly, Cheryl has developed a line of jewellery for luxury Italian designer De Grisogono and she’s representing that by wearing that brand to red carpet events and attending the official De Grisogono party.

And secondly, as the ambassador for L’oreal Elnett hairspray, Cheryl attended the Outside The Law film premiere as a guest of L’Oreal who are one of the sponsors of the Cannes film festival.

Her hair did look striking scraped back off her face but what most people were looking at was her gorgeous long sleeve dress.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen celebrities under the age of 50 wear sleeves to red carpet events but the look suits Cheryl.

It means she can wear a belt to accentuate her tiny waist and build up more of an hourglass silouhette. The long sleeves make the upper body look slightly wider and therefore the hips and waist look slimmer – genius!

It seems working on X Factor and having the incentive to work on her career stateside has given her a reason to care more about her clothes.

If you’re inspired by Cheryl to give long sleeves a go then try the lovely French Connection box beaded dress

If you prefer maxi dresses then check out the striking Fearne Cotton velvet drape maxi dress

Or the Mint velvet twist jersey maxi dresshas long sleeves and special ruching at the waist to create even more of an hourglass shape

Finish with some belts to further define the waist. If you want to stand out then get the  two pack bow belts from Very and wear both at once

Or check out the Floral waist belt for a colorful but fitted accessory

It’s great to see Cheryl back to her fashionable best. Long may it continue!
