Another week and a hot new look for X Factor judge Cheryl Cole.

The 27-year-old singer has vamped up her image with a dramatic red hairdo which she debuted on the reality show at the weekend.

Perhaps not wanting to take the focus away from her new locks, Cheryl kept it simple in a black Azzaro jumpsuit and Miu Miu heels for the Saturday night show.

And on Sunday, she bared a bit more it a black satin mini dress with a peephole neckline (pictured).

Her revamped hair certainly seems to have gone down well with her fans.

Amanda Holden revealed on Twitter that her daughter approves, because she thinks Cheryl now looks like The Little Mermaid - "Lexi likes Cheryl's hair! She says she looks like Ariel," the 39-year-old actress said.

Perhaps Cheryl's red hot hair is her way of signalling a fresh start. It is being reported that her lawyers will apply for a decree absolute on Monday, after Cheryl's decree nisi was granted six weeks ago.

Friends of the star have said that the new colour is her way of marking the occasion and telling the world: "I'm back".

Meanwhile, in the annual X Factor style battle, Cheryl is facing big competition from Aussie beauty Dannii.

It seems the mum-of-one, who will turn 39 on Wednesday, is edging ahead with her sartorial selections – particularly after wearing a Victoria Beckham design on Saturday's live show.


Dannii was labelled as "beautiful" by the designer herself, who famously wore the asymmetrical column dress to the Oscars in March.

Writing on Twitter after the show, fashion-following Dannii wrote: "I am loving the Victoria Beckham dress tonight – it feels beautiful on".

And Victoria seemed to approve, writing on her page: "Dannii Minogue looked so beautiful in Victoria Beckham last night."

On Sunday night, the Australian personality, who has also turned her hand to design, dressed to impress in a figure-hugging Antonio Beradi creation paired with simple nude heels.
