A lot has changed for Cheryl Cole since she was last on the cover of Elle back in 2009.
After launching a successful solo career, battling malaria and completing another series of X-Factor, the singer has landed the prestigious spot again for the February edition. This time, after admitting that she has been "pushed to [her] limits," she's ditching the victim role and moving on.
Dressed in Burberry Prorsum, Ralph Lauren and Marios Schwab - to name just a few designers - Cole looks as stunning as ever in her photo shoot for the magazine. It's clear that fashion is something close to her heart, too. She shares her love of Balmain and says that fashion "is definitely a massive part of who I am and what I do." Although Cheryl won't let other people's opinions get in her away. She admits that she "couldn't care less...if they like it, they like it."
And what does the girl who looks good in everything most like to wear? "I feel most comfortable in my jeans or my jumper. Or my tracksuit." So, it's not sequin mini-dresses and sky-high Louboutins all the time.
