Like Helen of Troy or Emily of The Bachelorette, reports of Cheryl Cole’s beauty abound. In response to a reporter who asked Justin Bieber whether Cheryl would make a good wife, he eloquently replied, “She is really hot but, most importantly, she is a really nice person and is kind to people so, yes, I think so.”
The Awl has a great summary of Cheryl Cole’s rise to fame but here are the basic facts: She came from a working class background, then competed on a reality singing show to win a place in Girls Aloud, a pop group akin to Destiny’s Child in terms of success. Her mentor is Simon Cowell, and she was voted “Britain’s Toughest Woman,” in a poll done by Maxim magazine, beating out cellphone-flinging supermodel, Naomi Campbell. Impressive, yes?
She married Chelsea footballer, Ashley Cole, who she later divorced after numerous reports of his philandering. After Cheryl revealed to The Daily Mail that one of her favorite moisturizers is E45, a 60-year-old formula which sells for £2, retailers and stockists girded up their supply. One skincare buyer said, “We know from previous experience that when Cheryl Cole gives a beauty product the okay then sales can rocket.” I haven’t personally tried this product before, as it appears to be only sold in the UK, but you can find it here.
