Cheryl Cole goes back to the Sixties
It's not often that I find myself on the same wavelength as Cheryl Cole (fashionably, musically, or otherwise) but these latest on-set pictures for her upcoming music video, Under The Sun, have made me feel a little giddy with excitement!
Britain's favourite pop starlet looks better ever in these Sixties inspired images, which were posted to her Facebook Page over the weekend. Channelling her inner Bridget Bardot with a beautiful beehive and sporting a slender figure that would rival Edie Sedgwick, Cheryl has immersed herself in the 60's style, and whilst I might not advocate wearing a cream knotted cardigan over an acid yellow bra, I DO appreciate the effort that the 29-year-old singer and L'Oreal girl has put into her look.
Although I'm not surprised that the 1960's have inspired a music video, I am quite shocked that it's Cheryl who has taken on the mantle, although in typical Cheryl Cole style, she has sexed it up a little and injected extra colour. The influence of the swinging era was seen throughout the Autumn/Winter 2012 catwalks back in February, particularly at Alexa Chung's favourite show, Moschino Cheap & Chic, where models walked in a playful mix of patterns, candy coloured fabrics, and distinct 60's silhouettes.
If Moschino's prices are a little out of your price range, then fear not; high street giant's Topshop are currently embracing the Sixties with a collection aptly named Factory Girl. Filled with feminine twin sets, boyish crombies, and mod style prints, Topshop's latest offerings will make the perfect additions to your AW12 wardrobe - here are some of our favourite pieces.
