Cheryl Cole comes out of hiding with a makeover: hideous or cute?


Here are some newish photos of Cheryl Cole from her birthday party this weekend. Cheryl has been “in hiding” for weeks since she got pink-slipped by her supposed friend Simon Cowell, when she got dumped from the American version of The X Factor and replaced with Nicole Scherzinger. Notice anything different? Yes, Cheryl did what too many do after getting publicly dumped – she radically changed her hair. And it is NOT good. Cheryl chopped off her dark, pretty brown hair and lightened it to this gross-looking rusty-blondish-red color that doesn’t suit her at all. The cut is fug too. Poor Cheryl. AND she’s still wearing way too much makeup. What is wrong with her?!? She could be so attractive, and she just seems intent on making herself look so trashy and budget.

If all of that wasn’t enough, Cheryl is so depressed that she’s spending time with her womanizing, cheeseball ex-husband Ashley too. Gross.

Cheryl Cole’s exclusive 28th birthday party was THE place to be seen this weekend – or at least it was for all the guests bar her ex-husband Ashley. For although the Chelsea and England footballer went to great lengths to attend the lavish bash – making a midnight dash from Heathrow to the five-star venue – he was very keen not to be spotted arriving or leaving. His chauffeur-driven car sneaked into the Sanderson Hotel unnoticed via the underground car park – and when it was time to leave in the early hours of yesterday, he concealed himself in the back seat as the Audi A8 whisked him away at high speed.

Ashley’s four-hour appearance at the party, direct from his holiday in New York, has renewed speculation that he and Cheryl are getting back together, despite his reported infidelity. Last night Miss Cole’s publicist confirmed that Ashley had attended the party, but refused to be drawn any further on their relationship.

But a source close to the star told The Mail on Sunday: ‘It was a small, private party held by Cheryl to celebrate her birthday with those who are really close to her. There were about 20 to 30 guests there. It was just friends and family, and Ashley was invited as well. She was over the moon that he had come because he had only just arrived back from America. The two of them are taking things slowly and it is early days, but Ashley is doing all the right things now. Most of the guests left the party at about 3am but Ashley stayed around for almost an hour longer to spend time with Cheryl. They are getting very close now and she needs someone to rely on.’

After sipping on Belvedere vodka, which the event was sponsored by, Cheryl and Ashley are said to have started dancing together by the DJ booth. Ashley’s mother Sue and brother Matthew told the News Of The World: ‘They are very happy together.’

The tabloid also revealed that Cheryl’s mother Joan, 51, approached Ashley at the party and led him by hand to her daughter.

‘That was Joan’s way of giving her seal of approval’, an insider told the newspaper. The pair then went to the bar to order more drinks, before Cheryl went home at 2am, leaving Ashley to go back to their former marital home alone.

The Girls Aloud singer, humiliatingly dumped from the American version of X Factor just over a month ago, spent an estimated £25,000 to effectively rent out half of the elite hotel for two days to pamper herself and close friends and family. She was in the £1,000-a-night penthouse for three nights, and booked the plush bungalow suite below her for her mother, Joan Callaghan, along with 20 more rooms for other party guests.

Sporting her new blonde bob, Cheryl wore a white Sixties-style Stella McCartney chiffon dress and high-heeled sandals to the party, which was the first time she has been seen in public since her exit from the US X Factor. After cutting an extravagant cake, designed to look like a pile of boutique gifts, Cheryl danced and chatted the night away.

But her ex-husband’s presence is believed to have caused tensions within her family, who are thought to have advised her not to let Ashley back into her life. Miss Cole’s mother is said to be furious that he has wormed his way back into her heart.

After the party, Ashley, 30, returned to their £5 million former marital home in Godalming, Surrey, where he is currently living. Cheryl reportedly stayed there overnight with him three weeks ago, but it is thought the pair did not spend the night together.

A source said: ‘Who knows what is going to happen in the future with them? Ashley is a predator, he likes a challenge, and Cheryl is so tired and emotional that she may just give in.’

I wish I could give Cheryl a style and a life makeover. I would make her dye her hair back to that lovely brunette color, I would make her wash all of that junk off of her face and teach her how to do a “natural” makeup look. I would put her in some cute, low-key outfits that flattered her figure (although, honestly, her clothes aren’t the biggest problem). Then I would encourage to spend time with dudes that bear no resemblance in character or disposition to Ashley Cole. She should date a lawyer-type, or a banker, maybe. Isn’t she one of the most desired women in Britain? She could do much, much better by simply picking up a random at a bar.

    She’s always just SO overdone. The hair looks like crap from the front.

  2. brin says:

    I agree, she is gorgeous but she looks so cheap with that make up and her style in general. She needs a make-under.

  3. Blue says:

    She looks….. not so good. The hair, the makeup, the clothes. Just awful.

  4. Steph says:

    That whole style makes her look matronly.

    Don’t you think so?

  5. bunny says:

    She is beautiful but she needs to learn less is more.

  6. SolitaryAngel says:

    Oh, honey NO.

  7. Blackie says:

    With all the plastic surgery she looks like a well-preserved 45 … buccal fat removal, cheek implants, way too much make-up, at least two nose jobs. Gorgeous ? Not.

  8. khaveman says:

    Just like Kim Kardashian, she is a beautiful woman with too much makeup on. Trust me, both those women would be much more attractive with less on. It’s way too “Dynasty.”

  9. gg says:

    bunny said it. Cheryl is ALWAYS too much, too much, too much. Her cothes are the worst in show business. EVEN worse than Jordan, which is pretty hard to do.

  10. Jen34 says:

    She definitely looks much better as a brunette. However, I don’t think the color is all that bad. The haircut, though, is like a longer version of what Posh did a while back. Poor thing looks dated and older.

  11. Alix says:

    @ Blackie: I *thought* I detected more than just too much makeup! She’s got a weird puffy/pinched look to her face, and it’s aging her.

  12. the hair color and style are not so bad but the make-up is horrendous! it looks like she has stage make-up on and the play is set in the 90s — especially with that brownish lipstick.

  13. Pyewacket says:

    She looks the worst I have ever seen her.

  14. Faye says:

    Her 90’s hair and make up are at odds with the mod outfit she’s trying to pull off. Pick a decade, you beautiful silly thing!

  15. Shy says:

    She looks like Maria Shriver here:)

    I don’t really care about her. Brits can have her back again and worship. But somehow I feel that her golden days as britains sweetheart are gone. It’s like she was some royal princess and then in other country they threat to her like a trailer trash. And suddenly she doesn’t look like princess anymore.

    That X-Factor humiliation killed her UK career.

  16. DD says:

    Ew. She’s beautiful without the makeup. What the heck is she thinking?

  17. Violet says:

    Hideous, no question. I hope she’s not hiding a pregnancy bump under that muumuu.

    I also hope she’s not crazy enough to reconcile with that womanizing ex of hers.


  18. taxi says:

    That’s a ’60s go-go dress. Didn’t Twiggy wear it 50 years ago?

    Bad hair & waaaay too much make-up. Makes her look like she’s trying to hide post-surgery discolorations.

  19. Jacq says:

    A trip to a MAC counter can leave you looking like a drag queen in about 30-minutes. She must have been in that chair for days… Ouch.

  20. mike says:

    Kaiser, you asked what is wrong with her. There’s nothing wrong with her.

    But that she’s a chav at heart. It’s a truism that money can’t buy class, and nothing illustrates that better than Cheryl Tweedy, whose trashy fashion sense just as equally matches her trashy choices of boyfriends.

  21. Bordelais says:

    To me, this hair colour says she’s definitely back with her ex-husband. When they first started dating she suddenly lightened her hair, and I think most of, if not all of the women that he was accused of cheating on Cheryl with, were blonde.

  22. gab says:

    28??!! Looks like over 48!!!

  23. Sandra Lucc says:

    really, no caring for this person/story. non event.

  24. Emily says:

    I’m confused. Ashley stayed till 4am to be close to Cheryl, who left at 2am? And her mum’s furious that she’s talking to him again, yet she gave him her approval? Whoever wrote that article needs a new proof-reader!

  25. Camille says:

    Cheryl is a pretty woman, but this is NOT a good look. Oh dear.

  26. Crystalline says:

    God, if she wanted to do a mod look, she should’ve gotten a pixie cut. She probably could have pulled that off and it would’ve satisfied her need for attention.

  27. Cherry says:

    Jeez, WHO CARES?? I thought we were done speaking about her now?

  28. Ally says:

    OMG, you just can’t take the WAG out of this girl.

    She looks like she just had a free haircut at the hair academy and a free makeover at the drugstore makeup counter.

  29. Anna says:

    That’s how they like it in the UK, overdone and overcooked.

  30. anna says:

    “ANNA – That’s how they like it in the UK, overdone and overcooked” thats a generalisation im from uk & nufin like her, your sad for saying that

  31. LIVEALOT says:

    Luv the shoes.

    lol @ anna

  32. UKHels says:

    she looks at least 5 years older and her legs do not suit the ‘above the knee’ look

    really, she’s so much better as a brunette and REALLY doesn’t need all that make up

  33. JennJenn says:

    “@ Blackie: I *thought* I detected more than just too much makeup! She’s got a weird puffy/pinched look to her face, and it’s aging her.”

    I’m noticing that, too, Alix. I wonder if she’s using heavy makeup to cover the effects of injections or some other recent treatment that hasn’t yet settled into her face.

    Unflattering hair cut and color, heavy makeup, ugly, shapeless dress, what’s to like?

  34. Kelly says:

    I don’t think my face has enough room for that much makeup.

  35. Gypsy says:

    Of course you realize that just as how you are harshly judging her, when you step out into the streets other people are looking at you and judging you also.
    It’s called “paying it forward”.

    To me she’s a wealthy and beautiful young woman doing what she wants to do, wearing what she wants to wear, living a life very, very few of us can even dream of.

  36. Bailey says:

    looks like she radically went through several tubs of ice cream.
    she removed her extensions.

  37. Lenore says:

    As a Brit, I like to think that she’s doing her bit to dissuade America that English = Classy. For those of you that still think the UK is all thatched cottages, Queen’s English and prim ladies in tea dresses, here’s Cheryl with her drag queen makeup and record of drunken violence and racial slurs to dispel those damaging clichés.

    Thanks, Cheryl.

  38. Judy says:

    That dress (top, actually) would be adorable w/ some white leggings.

  39. Honestly, not her AGAIN says:

    If it is not Katie Price, it’s Cheryl.
    So what. A poor singer and poor judge lost her job when the US saw straight through her and her PR machine.

    So what to do? Back to basics and use her Ex to score some PR brownie points.

    Well swallow everyone who is gullable.

    Even is she has a kid, it will only last 3 years max. Just enough to sell the exclusives for :-
    1) Getting back together
    2) Having a love child (prop)
    3) Ashly has an affair
    4) Cheryl gets heart broken
    5) They get another divorce
    6) Cheryl gets a better job as the public forgot she is a waste of space.

    Yawn, nearly forgot while I watch a re-run of what Katie Did Next,
    7) What Cheryl did next.
    8) Cheryl has a dump
    9) Cheryl’s dump is sold on ebay
