The Gorgeous Cheryl Cole

We Love Cheryl Cole here at Chicks Love, she always looks so amazing, and Last night was no excepetion when she attended the Screening of Amour at Cannes.

The dramatic dress was by Stéphane Rolland Haute Couture,

The Gorgeous Cheryl Cole - seemed to have the whole of the Red Carpet at Cannes

 The front was a modest neckline and the Back was a low cut to the mid back. She had bright Red Nails with a matching red handbag with wonderful Diamond earrings and a ruby and diamond Bracelet.

Cheryl Cole with Iced Ears!! Splendid!

 We have earrings very similar to those that Cheryl wore last night and we suspect at a fraction of the cost!!!

FHM Winner – Tulisa Contostavlos

It was nice to see that Tulisa Contostavlos won the coveted FHM Sexiest Woman of the year award, great to see a british winner, Do you think she deserved the award or would you like to of seen somebody else at the number one slot.

And it is nice to know that it is the General public that took to voting! Not sure how many but we are led to believe it was several hundred thousands – so kudos people.

And just incase you didn’t know the Queen and I mean Queen Elizabeth made it to No 103!!! Not bad for a lady in her mid 80′s!!

 

And just incase you didn’t know the list of the winners, it is as follows -

1. Tulisa Contostavlos – 24 years old – was it the X Factor that made her to the Number slot??

2. Cheryl Cole -  29 years old – Another X XFactor Judge! But I do think that Cheryl Cole is stunning, if not a little to thin. But I guess if you have got it flaunt it!

The Gorgeous Cheryl Cole a worthy Second Place

3. Rihanna - Did she make 3 because of her sexy videos I wonder?? Wonderful figure!

I love the jewellery that she is wearing in this picture!

4. Rosie Jones – 22 years old. I wonder if she won this no 4 spot becasue of her Page 3 entries!! mmmmmm

Rosie Jones No 4 on the FHM Sexiest Woman 2012

5. Georgia Salpa – 26 years old – I am sad to say I have never heard of her? Sorry! Apparently she is a model!

Georgia Salpa No 5 on FHM sexiest Woman 2012

6. Katy Perry – 28 years old. We love Katy’s Quirkyness, she knows how to play the game and does it very well!

7. Megan Fox – 26 years old – We think Megan is very feisty and obviuosly it was the Transformer Squad that got her to No 7!

8. Keeley Hazell – 28 years old – and we again had never heard of her and she also happens to be another Page 3 Model!! Mmmmm And also the first Blond is this years line up although with her dark brown eyes we wonder if perhaps she is really a Brunette underneath!??

9. Mila Kunis – 29 years old – we think that Mila is gorgeous! And we didn’t know that she has different coloured eyes one green and one brown! Also back to Brunettes!!

10. Emily Atack – 23 years old – And back to Blondes, she is from the programme The Inbetweeners???

11. Pippa Middleton        12. Pixie Lott           13. Daisy Lowe

14. Mollie King (The Saturdays)        15. Millie Mackintosh

16. Jessie J     17. Zooey Deschanel   18. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!!! WOW!!

Well some of you may or may not know that last night the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was aired on television, this was filmed earlier this month in New York, but last night we all got to see what new creations they have come up with.

Final Walk - Victoria's Fashion Show 2011

The three main models – Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio and Miranda Kerr all turned up for a special screening at the Segerstrom Centre For The Arts in Costa Mesa, California, the models are known as the ‘Victoira’s Secret Angels’ and we can see why they would be cast as Models for the underwear giants – Victoria Secrets.

Lily, Miranda and Alessandra arriving at the special event.

 It seemed that everybody wanted to get invovled, Beyonce was seen watching on the front row, the star studded event saw Kanye West, Jay-Z, Maroon 5 and Nicki Minaj give performances.

They also had an impressive Celeb turn out too – Orlando Bloom obviously there to support Miranda, Alexander Wang, Carine Roitfeld, Joe Manganiello (The werewolf in Tru Blood), Donna Karen, Debbie Harry, Cuba Gooding JR. to name but a few.

It is reported that it costs $12 million to stage and takes a full year to bring the show together!!!! Which includes designers, seamstresses, embroiderers, prop makers, and of course what show couldn’t work without the models!!! In fact 38 supermodels, 31 sets of angel wings, Two million crystals and 69 outfits, makes up one hell of a show, I for one would love to of been on the side lines!

Some of the other models that appeared on the catwalk for the show were Adrianan Lima, Erin Heatherton, Doutzen Kroes, Anne Vyalitsyna and Chanel Iman.

All looked stunning and showed of their amazing figures in some wonderfully theatrical creations. The show has six themes running through the Show and you can look at all the collections here

In the meantime a quick little review and pictures for you -

Ballet

Romantic and Dream like with a sexy twist. From Degas-inspired demis to lace V-strings they’re a dancers dream come true.

There were again lots of pale pinks and purples with the odd red and lots of lace.

 It looks so incredible and you can wear some of the pieces too, I have order from Victoria Secrets before and although does take a little time to get to you is worth the wait, the only thing I would tell you that you may not know is that, when you order over a certain amount from the USA you have to pay taxes at this end, something that caught me out once!!

Such a colourful show that it will keep me going until the next event and as we all know that won’t be far away with our fashion, celebrity world!!

 So then it was all over for another year, but we did see some stars turn up for the event, showing off how Fashion Savvy they may or may not be!!!

Once again, jewellery was played down as it often is on these Red Carpet events, I have a theory that they have to show case the outfits as they are given them for these occasions.

I thought that Kelly Brook looked amazing – I loved how she put the gold belt on the dress and her earrings – gorgeous!!

 

Gorgeous earrings you have on Kelly Brook!!

What a figure Kelly Brook has so jel!!

 And just look at Daphne Guinness – She has totally gone the other way and accessorised in every way possible.

I love Daphne’s rings! I love big rings!

 I can’t wait for the next amazing Awards Ceremony! Or Red Carpet Event!
