Singer and TV presenter
Cheryl Cole’s Geordie-girl-done-good style kudos was well cemented this year not only thanks to her ability to look great in whatever she threw over her petite frame, but also for her chameleon-like image.
Pretty-as-a-picture pop poppet for Girls Aloud, polished presenting starlet for The X Factor, and now edgy ghetto chic for the release of her solo album, if Cole gets into a look, everybody flies with it.
Her daring fashion choices - from young designer David Koma’s hub cap-adorned mini dress to all-over sequined leopard trousers from Ashish - prove she isn’t afraid to experiment and make mistakes, and this vulnerability is one of the reasons why the public love her.
With a rumoured clothing range in the pipeline for 2010, the new face of L’Oréal cosmetics has much to live up to.
