Cheryl Cole only started to feel "womanly" three years ago
The Girls Aloud singer - who regularly tops polls to find the best dressed women in the world - has revealed she felt a lot more comfortable in trainers and casual clothing until a few years ago, when she suddenly realised wearing pretty clothes and high-heeled would make her feel better about herself.
She explained in an interview with Stylist magazine: "About threeyears ago, I started to realise if you wear a pair of heels you feel more womanly. It was a `penny drop` moment. I`d argue with the stylist and the girls to wear trainers all the time. I only developed all those `womanly` things in the past threeyears. I`d snap my neck for shoes and handbags."
The 26-year-old beauty also likes to wear her hair in "big" styles to keep her looking feminine.
She added: "Well you always feel good once you`ve sprayed your hair. The higher the hair, the closer to heaven. It`s true. If I could have it higher, I would.
"It just makes you feel more womanly. I would rather have big hair and no make-up on than make-up and flat hair. All the way."
