Cheryl Cole, Louis Walsh

Film Magic

Much has been made of the fash-off between judges Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole this week, but far more interesting to us at InStyle.co.uk is one girl's continuing style evolution. While the hair is still big and the lashes decidedly OTT, our Cheryl has been slowly ridding her wardrobe of the garish WAG styles of old. In place of the shiny fabrics and bright colours we're seeing a more chic and elegant stylista emerging.

Yesterday saw Cheryl Cole head into the first round of X Factor bootcamp (this year being filmed in front of a live audience) along with fellow judges Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell and Dannii Minogue in this darling aubergine frock by French designer Vanessa Bruno. Bruno is nothing but typically parisienne in her outlook; sophisticated, beautifully tailored and subtle. Definitely attributes worth aspiring to.

Get Cheryl's Vanessa Bruno dress on net-a-porter.com for £265.02 now.
