From Natalie Portman striking some super-sultry poses in ballet thriller Black Swan (complete with Rodarte-designed tutus), to the Ballets Russes exhibition set to open at the V&A, it seems that pliés and arabesques have never been so hip. And now that Ms Cole is on board, there's simply no turning back.
Cheryl, who is in fact a classically trained ballet dancer, wears a stunning diaphanous shell pink dress and pointes, with her hair scraped back into a bun for her new video Promise This.
A vision of poise and elegance, it's a far cry from the velour tracksuits favoured in the early days of Girls Aloud - and post-Ashley and post-Malaria, we couldn't be happier to see Cheryl getting things back on track.
Promise This is released October 24.
