She was hailed as ''so beautiful'' by the ultimate glamazon Kim Kardashian in recent weeks, and it looked like Cheryl Cole had discovered a new found confidence as she threatened to upstage her Girls Aloud bandmates in the style stakes last night.
The 29-year-old solo singer stepped out to celebrate Strictly Come Dancing star Kimberley Walsh's 31st birthday in upmarket London eatery Zuma with fellow Girls Aloud member Nicola Roberts.

But despite Nicola being a fashionista on the Sky TV series Styled to Rock, all eyes were on Ms Cole as she walked into the Japanese restaurant wearing a skintight mustard yellow dress which showcased her enviably slimline figure.
Cheryl wowed onlookers with her trim waist and toned arms in the statement number which she accessorised with cream pointed stilettos and lashings of plum red lipstick.

The 'Fight For This Love' hitmaker sported a darker blow-dried barnet set for the colder months, wearing her glossy brunette tresses in loose waves around her shoulder. Well, she's worth it...
And despite London temperatures plummeting hastily in the past few weeks, Cheryl couldn't resist lapping up the attention in her sleeveless tight dress which bared her slender legs.
Meanwhile, Nicola Roberts fell short in the fashion stakes with a baggy knit, long leather skirt and quirky heels with bows, whilst sensible Kimberley wrapped up in a speckled coat over a black leather dress.

The loved up singer was not accompanied by her US dancer boyfriend this time, however, as it seemed to be a girly night out for the popstar trio - minus Girls Aloud member's Nadine Coyle and Sarah Harding.
Cheryl tweeted a snap of herself after the tasty meal out, writing to her 3 million followers: ''Almost ate myself to death with the girls @KimberleyJWalsh @NicolaRoberts why did we do the desserts ???''
It doesn't matter if you ate desserts when you look like that, Chezza.
