So, “Cheryl Cole wears Victoria Beckham” has to be one of the strangest headlines we’ve ever typed, huh? Imagine if it was literally true, and Chezza was ACTUALLY wearing Vicky B on the red carpet! Now THAT would be a look worth talking about!
Is this one, though? Well, Cheryl isn’t wearing Mrs Beckham herself, but she is wearing a long pink dress from the Victoria Beckham Spring 2011 collection. Fashion People are all excited about this, because Cheryl Cole has a somewhat “hot and cold” relationship with Victoria Beckham and her dresses, and having initially dismissed the designs as “too old”, she’s now been gushing to Grazia about how much she loves them, and how she wants to follow in Victoria’s perfectly-shod footsteps by becoming a fashion designer.
This is, of course, coming hot on the high heels of Cheryl’s shoe collection for Stylist Pick, and is actually a little surprising to us, because as much as we love Cheryl (and we’ll admit to having a bit of a soft spot for her), we’ve never particularly thought fashion was her “thing”, in the way it is Victoria Beckham’s, say. Say what you like about VB (we know you will!), but she has always had a distinctive style, and come across as being fairly fashion-obsessed, which isn’t something we’ve ever really thought about Cheryl.
Should Victoria be worried, do you think? Will we soon all be gushing over the Cheryl Cole Fall 2012 collection?
