She turned every head at the premiere of Habernus Papam at Cannes yesterday in a plunging white dress, but Cheryl Cole still decided to show off a more modest gown later in the evening.
After watching the Italian drama at Cannes Film Festival, the 27-year-old popped over to the L’Oreal after party in a shimmering gold long-sleeved gown.
The figure-hugging dress made sure to keep all attention on her for the remainder of the evening, as she strutted around in the stunning ensemble.
The lady is a vamp: Cheryl Cole turned heads as she arrived at a premiere during the Cannes Film Festival wearing a plunging white Stephane Rolland dress before changing in to a floor-length gold gown
She started her day by wearing the plunging white Stephane Rolland dress, which left very little to the imagination.
But Cheryl managed to look both sexy and elegant in the white creation.
Cheryl teamed the dress with an unusual belt, which featured what appeared to be two gold pears on the front, and gold clutch bag.
The choice was a sharp contrast to Cheryl's usual appearance of voluminous hair and fresh-faced make-up.
Cheryl caused a stir when she arrived for the first day of the X Factor USA auditions wearing a brightly coloured outfit and huge, backcombed hair.
But her ensemble, reminiscent of the clingy white dress Pippa Middleton wore when her sister Kate married Prince William, couldn't have been more different.
Perhaps the reason for that was because fellow X Factor USA judge Simon Cowell had offered Cheryl some advice.
A source said: ‘Simon told her he didn’t love her orange top and purple flares - he said he had seen her look far more glamorous.
Cheryl appeared poised and confident as she posed for photographers on the red carpet at the premiere.
She then decided to make an appearance at the party hosted by L'Oreal, the cosmetics company of which she is the face.
Last year, she again managed to hit the headlines when she arrived wearing a cutaway Versace dress to perform a set at the party during the film festival.
It's been a busy few weeks for Cheryl, who is expected to continue her jetsetting by flying straight back out to Los Angeles for further X Factor USA auditions as soon as she is finished in Cannes.
And Cheryl has already proved a hit with her fellow judges Paula Abdul and L.A. Reid on X Factor USA.
She said: 'I'm hoping people are going to embrace it. I'm not worried (about my accent). It's going to be interesting. I hear a lot of accents here too.
'I'm sure there will be words or phases where people are like, excuse me?'
Asked if she would adjust or change her voice, she replied emphatically: 'Never! I would be crucified where I'm from if I tried to change my accent.'

This floor-length white gown with a puddle train and plunging V-neck (we can only imagine the amount of tape being used to keep it in place and avoid a Judy Finnigan-style wardrobe malfunction) is described simply as ‘very expensive’ by one of Rolland’s spokesmen, who said the dress was made to order especially for Cheryl.
Adding a touch of her custom bling, the creation is topped off with a belt made of hand-blown glass filled with liquid gold and jewellery by Bond Street jeweller David Morris.
Groomed, sleek, with perfect make-up and immaculately manicured chocolate-coloured nails, it’s not the first time we’ve seen Cheryl on the Cannes catwalk clad in white (lest we forget last year’s white cut-out mini dress disaster) but it’s certainly the most successful.
