Mah Gurl, Cheryl

Still completely enamored with all things London, I of course purchased and constantly listen to the Cheryl Cole CD, "3 Words". My personal favorites? "Fight for this Love", "Parachute", and "Heaven". I think this woman can honestly do it all: she has a wonderful career, is absolutely gorgeous, and can still remain on top after battling a terrible divorce from her husband. But I had no idea she was such a fashion icon! So just imagine my excitement when I found out Cole won the coveted title of "Best Dressed" in Glamour's 8th Annual "Best Dressed Women's List". But she is no stranger to being a fashionista. Last year, she was Britian's best dressed celebrity in the eyes of GMTV. The X Factor judge exercises "her fashion mojo" (Henry Holland's words, not mine) by wearing some spectacular designers: Giles Deacon, Marios Schwab and Richard Nicoll. Upon receiving this news, I decided to research her fashion look.I then realized why she is the "Best Dressed Woman": she has variety. Cheryl Cole does not wear the same cookie cutter outfit. She experiments with colors, lengths, inspirations, and silhouettes. The beauty of Cheryl Cole is that she is still sensible while following trends. Some fashion icons (cough, Rihanna) take too many risks and ultimately look foolish, instead of fashion forward. Everything looks well put together, but not extremely predictable. I am actually glad that a well known fashionista, like Rihanna (this blog post may turn into a bashing Rihanna's personal style entry even though "Rude Boy" is Emily and my London jam) didn't win this coveted prize: it is about time we get some new fashionistas to inspire us. Cheryl Cole is one of those people I would love to meet in my life. I can relate to her songs, her life, and ultimately her fashion. So congratulations, Cheryl!
