Move over Burberry, it's high hair Cheryl Cole's turn in London Fashion Week spotlight

In pictures: highlights from this week's fashion extravaganza on the London catwalk

Girls Aloud's Nicola Roberts joined Cheryl Cole's guests at's London Fashion Week party hosted by the former X Factor judge.

Floral prints and opulent silks brightened up catwalks yesterday, as the week-long whirlwind of glamour and glitz featured its last day of womenswear shows.

In the past four days, the fashion extravaganza featured collections by Burberry Prorsum, Vivienne Westwood and Jonathan Saunders among others. Yesterday, Mary Katrantzou, Roksanda Ilincic, Osman, Kinder Aggugini and Amanda Wakeley all launched new collections, which won wide approval.

She may have been launching her shoe collection, but all eyes were in Cheryl Cole's new high hair 'do' last night.

After a disasterous year, Cheryl Cole picked herself up last night and attended the launch of her fashion collaboration with online fashion site Stylistpick.

Hoping to generate as much attention as she can get , the axed X Factor judge piled her hair high into an impossible beehive and wore a bright red satin cut away dress.

She even wore a pair of shoes she had helped design - towering suede studded heels.

There was no sign of former husband Ashley Cole, whom she had reunited with over the summer, but she was joined by Girls Aloud pals Nicola Roberts. She is hoping to follow in Victoria Beckham's footsteps after her highly successful foray into fashion design.

Stylistpick’s chief creative officer Juliet Warkentin said: ‘We are thrilled to be working with Cheryl. Cheryl is the style icon and is amazingly warm, a quality that has made her the nation's favourite.

However, despite designing her own shoe collection, Cheryl was unimpressed with the heels she wore last night, tweeting after the event: "Girls..Don't you just love taking your foot out of a heel and into your slippers..The best! Feels like my feet are having a cuddle.. X"

The shoes will be available on line in December.
