Good Look – Cheryl Cole

In Fashion, Good Look on November 2, 2009 at 5:06 pm

Cheryl Cole is not known on the northern hemisphere of the planet (at least not enough to have an impact), but in the UK she’s beyond media darling. She’s somewhat of a quasi-God to the slebrity-obsessed and fashion press a like.

She is beautiful, that’s for sure. And her story is relatable. She grew up on the rough side of England on an estate ( over there, the estates are not-so-good). She won a reality TV competition landing a spot in group Girls Aloud (basically, a contemporary, modernized version of Spice Girls). Surprisingly, the group hasn’t crossed over as their predecessors did. But her life is a fairy tale – with a lot of loopholes. She married mega-rich Soccer Pro Ashley Cole (He plays for Chelsea), and over a short course of time her look has gone from chav, to WAG, to a woman all her own. However, she still has a bit of that Chav mentality complementing her history of bar fights and potty mouth square offs with other celebrities. But as they say, you can take the ghetto out the hood, but you can’t take the hood out the ghetto. Regardless of her raucous ways, she’s graced countless magazine covers and has been placed at the top of almost all of UK’s best dressed lists. While I do definitely question all the hype, I have to salute the fact that she made the cover of British Vogue.

I’ve never seen Ms. Cole look as good as she did within those pages. And I don’t think I ever will again. I do believe it’s a good idea for her to revel in her fame while it’s around. Her style counsel is steering her in the right direction; I sure hope that she’ll settle into her look and become a true fashion icon.

Get The Look

The Top – Chale Pussy-Bow Blouse by Diane von Furstenberg. $261 (CAD).

I do prefer a long-sleeve with sequin leggings – especially with sequin leggings. I also prefer if the blouse covers the bum and it doesn’t look like this one does, but chances are you may have a coat on top anyway.

The Pant – Dégradé Sequin Leggings by Stella McCartney. $837.20 (USD).

Apparently they’re sold out. You’ve got to be kidding me. These are the most gorgeous sequin leggings I’ve ever seen. The dégradé effect adds elegance and in a way, it tells you how to wear them. Start light as a top and make sure the shoes are dark – but not brown or black, please.

The Shoe – Taupe Moos pump by Aldo. $90(USD).
The Accessories:

The Broach – I found this Cream Pearl and Crystal Cluster Brooch for $14.99 (USD) by White Aisle.

The bracelet
Silver-tone Swarovski Crystal-Embellished Bracelet by Roberto Cavalli. $1,415 (USD).
The Bag – Lace Detail Bag by Zagliani. 3,565 (GBP). Available at Browns Fashion.
