Cheryl's Orange Revenge Dress Was Everything & You Too Can Get The Look But For Much Less


When you're famous and going through a break-up, it must be incredibly difficult to step out in public amidst all that speculation. But on Monday night, Cheryl and her orange revenge dress braved photographers and ended up completely stealing the limelight at Simon Cowell's star-studded Syco party. Despite what may be going on behind closed doors, she looked strong, confident, and to be honest, like she was enjoying herself — and good on her.

The star only announced her split from former One Direction member Liam Payne at the beginning of this month. The couple posted an almost identical statement on Twitter that read:

"We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together."

Despite her recent break-up, the 35-year-old was practically glowing at the event at London's Victoria and Albert Museum.

Cheryl was clearly inspired by the UK's climbing temperatures, choosing a warm orange dress — and wow. Seriously, the post break-up attire was on fire. Her off-the-shoulder style was designed in a silky yet tailored fabric and featured flouncy sleeves and a demure slit on the skirt. Strappy gold heels topped off the elegant outfit.

Unlike a lot of celebrity looks, Cheryl's sunny Cushnie et Ochs dress is still up for grabs. And it's on sale. Don't get too excited though because 50 percent off doesn't necessarily spell a bargain. The dress has been reduced from its original £1,265 price but is still an eye-watering £506.


Cheryl arrived alone to the party but was joined by many of Cowell's friends including Tulisa, Sinitta, and Rochelle Humes. Oh, and Piers Morgan, who posted a photo alongside Cheryl, making a joke that she was "bouncing back with a new older man."

Now, a lot of people are wondering how they can steal Cheryl's style without draining their entire bank account.

Luckily, the high street has been a big supporter of cold shoulder dresses for some time. Here are a few cheaper ways to dupe that dress:

1A Floral Version

Borgo De Nor Josephine Cold Shoulder Floral Print Maxi Dress


Although this floral style is still almost £200, it's not ridiculously expensive — especially if you wear it for all formal summer occasions for the next few years.

2A Shorter Style

Claire Cold Shoulder Dress


This has almost identical sleeves to Cheryl's dress but comes in a shorter above knee length, making it much easier to walk around in.

3The Ultimate Dupe

Red Cold Shoulder Tie Waist Maxi Dress

River Island

OK, so this isn't strictly orange but red isn't too far off the mark. And the button-up design of this dress is the closest to Cheryl's I could find on the high street. What more could you want?

4A Holiday Dress

Orange Cold Shoulder Swing Dress

River Island

Pack this little orange number in your suitcase and you've got one holiday look sorted. It's lightweight but has long enough sleeves to keep you warm on cooler summer nights.

5A Day Dress

Roman Originals Orange Cold Shoulder Swing Dress


Whether you're taking a casual trip to the pub or embarking on a day of sightseeing, this flouncy crepe design is ideal. Plus it's got cute floral embroidery on the shoulders.

6An All-Weather Dress

Cold Shoulder Frill Hem Shift Dress


Made from a slightly thicker fabric, this mini dress will serve you well in the unpredictable British weather.

And if you want a slice of Cheryl's shoe action, here's your chance:

1Classic Stiletto

Rose Gold Tone Strappy Sandals

River Island

Cheryl's mystery heels had multiple straps arranged in a decorative pattern and so do these.

2Metallic Heels

ASOS Homecoming Heeled Sandals


This rose gold pair are currently on sale (and still available in every size) so be quick before they sell out.

3Rose Gold Strappy Sandals

Rose Curved Gold Multi Strap Block Heeled Sandals


These heels have so many straps I can't quite work them out. But that's half the fun, isn't it?

Replicating a celebrity outfit has never been so easy thanks to the emergence of so many affordable brands. Touch wood that the British high street never disappears.
