Cheryl Cole had every reason to smile as she posed ahead of her lucrative 30-minute gig at the Cannes Festival last night. The star was being paid £250,000 for the spot at a dinner hosted by luxury jewellery firm de Grisogono.
And in her mermaid-like floor length, black tulle, strapless Roberto Cavalli dress glowing Cheryl gave them their money’s worth.
The 26-year-old wore a boule diamond bracelet and earrings by de Grisogono understood to be worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Cheryl posed for pictures at the exclusive Hotel du Cap before entertaining guests which included leading figures in fashion including Naomi Campbell and Margerita Missoni.
Such is her premium that organisers at the festival are keen for her to attend a premiere if she can fit it into her schedule.
L’oreal is a sponsor of the festival and many of the beauty firms’ models are attending, including Eva Longoria, Miss Rai and Lost star Evageline Lilly.
