Cheryl wowed in a sheer black lace dress as she left a London Fashion Week bash  on Monday night.

The singer, 40, cut a glamorous figure in the racy number as she headed home from the Perfect Magazine Party at Dovetale restaurant arm in arm with publicist Simon Jones.

Earlier in the night she posed with her Girls Aloud bandmates Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh at the Perfect X AMI Issue Six launch bash.

Cheryl looked great in the floaty dress which had a high-neck design and silk material. 

She completed the outfit with a bright pink clutch bag and wore her brunette tresses pulled back.

Inside the party Nadine, 38, wore a strapless silver dress with a thigh split, while Nicola, also 38, opted for a silver halterneck number.

Kimberley, 42, wore a black strappy velvet dress with silver detailing on it and wore her blonde tresses in a choppy bob.

Also at the party were the likes of Lila Moss, Daisy Lowe, Cruz Beckham and Georgia May Jagger.

Girls Aloud are planning to hit the road in May and June 2024 in recognition of this month marking 21 years since they and the late Sarah Harding won Popstars: The Rivals. 

However, the group have not recorded new music but just want to celebrate their back catalogue.

Cheryl revealed they had been discussing the plans for some time but put the idea on ice when Sarah – who died in September 2021 – was diagnosed with breast cancer.

She said in a statement: ‘We all started talking about the possibility of doing something to celebrate Girls Aloud’s 20-year anniversary a few years ago. The anniversary seemed like an obvious thing that we would celebrate.

‘But when Sarah fell ill all priorities changed. She passed away a year before the anniversary and it just didn’t feel right, it felt too soon.’

The group plan to use the tour to ‘celebrate’ their late friend.

Cheryl added: ‘But now, I think there is an energy that does makes it feel right. It’s the right time to celebrate Sarah, it’s the right time to celebrate the band and the right time to celebrate the fact we can still do this 21 years later. That’s a big honour in lots of ways.’

Kimberley said: ‘Over the last year, we’ve felt this outpouring of love – obviously towards Sarah, but actually towards all of us as a group. 

‘And I guess it’s ignited something in all of us again. It feels like something has changed and it does feel like the right time to celebrate Sarah and the 20-year anniversary that we didn’t celebrate at the time.’ 

The group hope fans will enjoy the tour just as much as them.

Nadine said: ‘Girls Aloud are a band that made such a huge impact on people’s lives. We grew up with the band, but so did so many other people. 

‘So for us not to do something again feels like such a shame and a waste. We want to have that moment with fans where we can all enjoy it together.’

Nicola added: ‘I think what’s really encouraging is that whenever people ask us about reuniting it’s not, “Would you guys ever do it?” but “When are you guys gonna do it?” To know we still have that love from our fans and people who watched us grow up gives us the confidence to do the tour. 

‘It will be massive celebration of everything we’ve done up to this point. We want people to leave being like, “Wow, I’ve just had one of the best nights of my life.’ 

Girls Aloud originally formed in 2002 on ITV ‘s Pop Stars: The Rivals and shot to fame, achieving 20 top-ten singles and five BRIT award nominations. 

Girls Aloud took an initial break in 2009 to pursue other projects before they split for good in 2013. 

Sarah tragically passed away two years ago, when she was just 39, after a battle with breast cancer.

After her time in Girls Aloud, Sarah starred in Coronation Street and went on Celebrity Big Brother in 2017.

In 2020 she announced she had breast cancer and that it had spread, before releasing a memoir in 2021 titled Hear Me Out.

After Sarah’s death, bandmate Nicola said: ‘Time is the most precious thing we have as human beings, it can run out at any point. 

‘I think it would be very easy to become extremely fearful, over time, when someone so young and so close to you has ran out of it and I think it’s important not to become obsessed with it because things are still happening on their own, in your own time.

‘I think it’s important to still sort of go through the pace of your life as you were, and not become frantic about your time possibly coming to an end, or someone else that you love’s time possibly coming to an end. I think that is a dangerous place to be.’

In 2022 the group held The Primrose Ball, a charity gala event for The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and Cancer Research UK, as part of The Sarah Harding Breast Cancer Appeal – but did not perform together.
