The one to watch for 2010: Nicola Roberts
Forget Cheryl Cole, the often overlooked 'fifth member' of Girls Aloud has been something of a style icon this year. Whether its her choppy ginger bob, numerous Chanel bags or gorgeous Vivienne Westwood frocks, she's certainly come into her own and created a unique, covetable style.
Once given the title of the 'ugly duckling' of the band and publicly criticised for her appearance by Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles, she is now a glamorous style icon who is a frequent face on fashion's front rows. And with her own collaborative beauty range for fair skin with beauty brand 'Jelly Pong Pong' under her belt she is undoubtedly one to watch for the coming year.
Whilst trawling through pictures of Ms Roberts I came across many snaps of her in daring brightly coloured party dresses, 1920's inspired blouses and dresses and trendy casual wear. And lets not forget that gorgeous Vivienne Westwood wedding dress (see above), as infamously worn by Carrie in the 'Sex and the City' film.
I've chosen my favourite Nicola Robert's outfits and offered you some high street alternatives so you can translate the flame-haired stylistas look into your own wardrobe. Enjoy!
