From ladette to lady: With her glamorous red carpet look, is Sarah Harding ready to outshine Cheryl Cole?

It’s the premiere of the new St Trinian’s film and slinking her way down the red carpet is a stunning blonde in a jaw-dropping floor-length dress with sheer panels and a train that puddles around her ankles, like the world’s most glamorous oil slick.
There’s an aura of one of the old studio actresses there, some Betty Grable, or a bit of Jean Harlow.
From some angles, she looks a little like contemporary Hollywood royalty on Oscar night: there’s a definite hint of Gwen Stefani, even Scarlett Johansson.
But this is no stateside starlet, this is Sarah Harding of Girls Aloud — and, forget Cheryl finding her mojo, Sarah seems to have discovered her inner goddess with a glam look that is a million miles away from her previous incarnations.
Because, and we’ll be honest, we were a little bit worried about Ms Harding.
For a while, it seemed it was all about clubbing and Ibiza and falling out of bars, looking, ahem, tired and emotional.
While the rest of the ‘Girls’ were doing chic and soignée, she appeared to be trying the retro ladette thing.
Now, though, well, who’d have thought it? One red carpet appearance does not a screen goddess make, but it does seem she’s been taking some serious lessons in style.
