After being M.I.A for a while, Cheryl Cole made a triumphant return to the red carpet earlier today in London.

She was glowing as she glided down the red carpet for The Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards.

The former X Factor judge greeted the Prince of Wales wearing a Sass & Bide Fall 2011 dress.

Her terracotta silk dress has embroidered details on the shoulder and waist plus a split on the side.

She used this spilt to show off her Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

This is Cheryl back at her best, big hair and all.

She appeared to fall out of love with dressing up during her last season of the X Factor, so it’s good to see she has her mojo back.

Glossy L’Oreal brunette waves and a Diane von Furstenberg Lytton minaudiere completed her BDOTW worthy look.
