Regal but dull: How to sum up Cheryl Cole's diva makeover in 3 Words
By Daily Mail Reporter
Cheryl Cole's solo career has got off to a flying start.
And perhaps now hoping to emulate the success of superstars Mariah Carey and Beyonce Knowles, Cheryl has ditched her street dance gear for a gown fit for a diva along with suitably styled big hair.
In her debut solo video for Fight For This Love, Cheryl Cole tried to show a new, edgy fashion sense with her military chic.

Cheryl, 26, recorded five tracks with the rapper in Los Angeles over the summer for the album, which reached number one in the UK charts when it was released last month.
The first single Fight For This Love, which was also released in October, also went straight to the top of the singles chart.
Regal: Cheryl strikes a pose
In the video and as she performed the song on The X Factor results show, Cheryl wore a military-type uniform for the upbeat song.
Speaking about her X Factor performance and military uniform, her husband Ashley told OK! magazine: 'Cheryl has done brilliantly on The X Factor and she did a great performance of her single.
