Cheryl Cole's Updated Style Formula: Sleek And Shiny Spells Sophistication

10 June 2014 by

In a bit of a work slump right now? Welcome to #PlayTime, Grazia Daily's new music feature bringing you a different hot track every day of the week. From just-dropped music premieres to cool covers and throwback classics, its the new soundtrack to your afternoon.

Cheryl Cole's dropped the video for new single 'Crazy Stupid Love' and it's everything we could have asked for. Chezza's swapped her block-colour outfits for a teensy crop top and pant-flashing shiny sweats for the clip co-starring Tinie Tempah. Sporting big blonde locks, orange eye-shadow and hoop earrings, the singer hangs out in a dark and sweaty club in the clip. Of course, there's the usual incredible dance sequence with Cheryl showing off some booty-shaking prowess - as well as a teensy nonchalent twerk.

Overall, we'd describe the video as Rita Ora meets J.Lo - 'On The Floor' meets Christina Aguilera - 'Dirrty'. Highlights include Tinie Tempah's uber chic bomber jacket, Chezza's killer bod and being able to have a good gawk at her infamous back tattoo.

8 June 2014: Cheryl Cole performs on BGT

With a new job, a new L'Oreal campaign and new ombre hair, Cheryl Cole is making quite a comeback. Just in time for her return to The X Factor this summer, our favourite Geordie has stepped up her style a tad too. Yes, long gone are those snazzy jumpsuits and military jackets and in their place is a much more minimal starlet, with a dollop of urban cool thrown in for good measure.

Just take a look at her performance on Britain's Got Talent last night, for example. She went all Rihanna-esque on us with a look that's miles away from her solider style of old. Performing her new song, ‘Crazy Stupid Love’, the star cracked out some moves while showing off her incredibly impressive abs in a sporty crop top with a mesh overlay teamed with a pair of low-slung baggy trousers and some strappy heels. As for her brand new mane, well, it was looking better than ever. Great to have you back, our Chez!

From her Christian Louboutin heels, crisp whites and simple colours, Cheryl has done a style U-turn recently. Earlier this month, she was spotted leaving the Radio 1 studios wearing an all-white look with nothing more than a smattering of black accessories. She paired her skinny jeans with a transparent top courtesy of fashwan fave, J Brand, and on the high fashion front, she wore Saint Laurent heels and Alexander Wang's ‘Emile’ textured black tote.

Just days earlier, we saw Cheryl looking low-key cool yet again in a white crop top with distressed skinny jeans by Ksubi, polished off with a navy leather jacket with fringing from the must-have Kate Moss for Topshop collection. Score!

Flash back three years when the star rocked up to the US X Factor auditions and Chez was all purple flares, back-combed bouffant and frilly orange top. How far she's come, eh? So with her back on our telly screens each week, we're holding out for sartorial gems by the bucket-load. Maybe it's true when they say you become the 'real you' at 30. Either way, we can't get enough of this whole new Cheryl. More please.
