Cheryl Cole is two years behind with her fashion

Cheryl Cole is usually heralded as a style icon, but she's been trailing behind other celebrities in the uptake of the hottest thing to hit the fashion world this century: Victoria Beckham's dresses.

Having previously described the former Spice Girl's dresses as "For older women" two years ago, Cheryl took a different direction in her fashion and opted for a more ladylike look at the Pride of Britain Awards last night.

Victoria's BFF, Eva Longoria has had her wardrobe rammed full with the designer's dresses over the years as has Demi Moore and Katherine Jenkins.
