This is more like it Cheryl Cole.

The X Factor US judge goes a very long way to redeem her fashion violation earlier this week.

She stepped out on the red carpet at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival “Habemus Papam” Premiere tonight looking breath-taking wearing a Stéphane Rolland Spring 2011 Couture dress.

We don’t see enough to Stéphane Rolland on the red carpet, but whenever we do it gives us dramatic results.

Her plunging gown with a draped detail from the hip and a gold accent on the waist is accessorized with a gold clutch and a deep rouge lip colour.

The Barbarella hair was slicked back in favour of a neat ponytail.

On this evidence I hope that her UK stylist travels back to the US with Cheryl.
