An extensive gallery of Cheryl through the years 👑

She's had a lot of different looks

Cheryl at three stages of her life

by heatworld |

Remember when Cheryl first graced our screens on Popstars: The Rivals? Back in the day she was known for her tracksuits and dimples. Obsessed.

She then had a glo up during her Girls Aloud days and when she started dating Ashley Cole and became the UK pop princess during their marriage.

Things didn't end well (we don't know to go there with their divorce) and fast forward a few years and she welcomed baby Bear with Liam Payne (we're still shook at their relationship).

Anyways it's safe to say that Cheryl's had more looks than we've had hot dinners, so we thought we'd have a look back at her transformation through the years.

From her time in Girls Aloud, to her Cheryl Tweedy/Cole years, to the time of Fernandez-Versini, right through to the Liam Payne and baby Bear era - it's all there.

Check out: Cheryl throughout the years

Looking back on fashion, early naughties were an absolute shocker! That dark brown, not quite maxi, not quite knee length skirt with pointed shoes did not do the mint green satin corset any favours. We still love you, though, Cheryl!
