Birthday girl Cheryl Cole was all smiles last night as she celebrated turning 26 with a long list of famous friends at Vanilla Bar. The Girls Aloud star turned heads as she stepped out with hubby Ashley in a barely-there pink tassel fringed dress from Alexander McQueen S/S '09.

She was joined by fellow X Factor judges Dannii Minogue, Louis Walsh, and Simon Cowell. Party-hopping Sir Philip Green was also in attendance, as was Holly Willoughby, and band mates Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts. Yes, her frock left very little to the imagination, but with a bod like Cheryl's, why wouldn't you? What do you think of her birthday ensemble? Tell us below.
