    Love her or not, Cheryl Cole sure knows how to make an entrance. This racy, lacy number caught the paparazzi’s attention at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend ensuring popping flashbulbs and guaranteeing column inches. Look away now Ashley.

    Our Cheryl certainly knows how to make an entrance - we love the way she's harnessing the attention-grabbing qualities of a bold red tone David Fisher/Rex Features

    As Cheryl twinkled away on the red carpet, we took inspiration from the elaborate lace work and fiery red colour of her frock to bring you this week’s Catwalk to Couch.


    1. Who would have thought we could compare a couture red carpet frock to a lampshade? Our ingenuity knows no bounds!

    We think you’ll agree this unusual pendant is a dead ringer for our Cheryl’s dress, with its bold red hue and cheeky cut-out design.

    2. If you’d like to paper your walls as an homage to Cheryl may we suggest this red lace fretwork design? The pink and white colour palette complements the cherry red tones and we guarantee it will be a talking point in your home.

    3. Only girls allowed. If you prefer a more girly take on the lace trend, how about this pink lace cushion from Zara Home? At only £15.99 why not buy a few and scatter them freely around your boudoir?

    4. And to complete our homage to Miss Cole we bring you this zingy red and pink lace effect bath towel. If you happen to be in Cannes for the festival, this would also make an excellent beach towel – the bright red colour acting as an alert for any paparazzi that might be loitering nearby. Strike that pose.
