With a new husband and name to boot, it seems apt that Cheryl's Madame Tussauds waxwork has had a makeover.
Originally unveiled in 2010 (the year that the singer divorced footballer Ashley Cole), her replica has had a costume switch-up, ditching a revealing red cut-out gown in favour of chic skinny leather trousers, metallic top and, of course, killer heels. But the mannequin's update popped up on our bridal radar because of something smaller and rather more sparkly on her ring finger…
The previously jewellery-free left hand now boasts replicas of the rings given to Cheryl by Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini which have an estimated value of almost £300,000. The stunning emerald-cut diamond looks stunning against the shimmering top - swoon!
According to The Independent, the waxwork of the newlywed may have a further update yet. Cheryl is reportedly considering the removal of the "Mrs C" tattoo on the back of her neck, a change which Madame Tussauds would imitate. SH

Cheryl co-hosted a Radio 1 show with Greg James last week and gave us a scrap of detail about her big day! The conversation strayed from news of Cheryl's new single Crazy Stupid Love (which earnt her a fourth solo Official Singles Chart Number 1 yesterday!) and role of judge on X Factor when Greg quizzed the songstress on her recent marriage to Jean-Bernard.
Cheryl planned to keep details of her big day secret; the star revealed "I would have actually kept it that way but unfortunately it was leaked," adding: "But I'm glad it's out there."
And did Cheryl have a hen do? When Greg asked her about this pre-wedding tradition, she answered simply 'no'! It seems she's more interested in chilling out, adding that a typical day-off for her is spent "in my pyjamas watching TV, flicking through the channels." SH

If you don't have a wedding ceremony, or exchange vows, or exchange rings or do any of the other things a wedding involves, can you call the dress worn to such an even a wedding dress? No. Despite that the press has reacted to Cheryl's dark ensemble with unprecedented zeal.
Yes, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini celebrated her nuptials last night at The Library with her friends and family. And yes, for the special occasion (again, we repeat: not a wedding) the singer wore a daring black gown by British couturiers Ralph & Russo.
A fabulous dress (and with Cheryl's figure, who can blame her for flaunting it) but not a wedding dress.
Ralph & Russo designer Tamara Ralph spoke to Vogue.com this morning to explain why the dress was so perfect for Cheryl: "The play on fabrics and simple silhouette is what really makes this gown so striking. The sumptuous, rich velvet and duchess silk bodice contrasted with a delicate, sheer silk-chiffon skirt brought an element of fun to the overall look whilst still being romantic."
She also noted: "Cheryl's choice of black for a wedding celebration was so unexpected but I love the fact that she surprised everyone."
But, er, it wasn't a wedding…
Either way, attending the celebrations were Cheryl's former bandmates Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts. The X Factor judge's mum was also spied entering the private members club.
According to The Mirror there was an Arabian theme to the night and guests enjoyed nibbles of hummus, pitta bread, mousaka, moutabel and falafel.
One that that is without a doubt is how happy and glowing Cherly looked as she arrived. Congratulations to the happy couple! SR

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is due to have a party to celebrate her nuptials in the UK later this week, according to MailOnline.
"Cheryl just wants to share her happiness with those closes to her," explained a friend of the singer.
Around 80 friends and family members are due to attend the celebration.
Unfortunately she won't be renewing her vows or having another ceremony as we hoped; she won't even be wearing a wedding dress.
"She's been so busy that she hasn't had a time to see everyone since she flew back home, so this I the perfect opportunity for her and Jean-Bernard to catch up with their nearest and dearest."
Rumours of Cheryl being pregnant have been rampant since she made her surprise wedding announcement, but as we understand it there is no truth there.
The Geordie singer recently admitted in a magazine interview that children are 'not in my plans'. SR

Cheryl Cole, or should we say, Fernandez-Versini, has confirmed that she will be taking her new husband's name.
The news, confirmed to The Daily Mail by the pop singer's spokesperson, comes after her bandmate and best friend Nicola Roberts has taken to Twitter to defend her friend:
"You can be in a relationship for two years and feel nothing; you can be in a relationship for two months and feel everything. Time is not a measure of quality; of infatuation, or of love," she wrote.
Well said, Nicola!
But still, can we see the dress Cheryl? SR

Cheryl Cole has secretly tied the knot with her French boyfriend Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini after only three months of dating.
The pair exchanged vows in a secret ceremony on a beach on the island of Mustique, in the West Indies, earlier this month.
Sharing a picture of her bridal bling via Instagram The X Factor judge confirmed the news.
"I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news," Cole said. "Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together."
According to reports, the couple, who started dating three months ago, said 'I do' in front of just four guests, including Cheryl's mum Joan Callaghan and long-time friend and personal assistant Lily England.
The 31-year-old singer and 33-year-old restaurant owner quietly started dating in April and went public with their relationship during Cannes Film Festival a month later.
Jean moved into Cheryl's luxury mansion in the UK last month and friends recently revealed he was eager to make the former Girls Aloud star his wife.
An insider told The Mirror newspaper: "Their relationship has really hotted up, and he's a very impulsive guy.
"He thinks the two of them are perfect together and would love to marry her. To people who don't know him it might seem rushed but he's a passionate Frenchman - he wears his heart on his sleeve."
Cheryl was previously married to footballer Ashley Cole.
Whilst we love your bling pic, Cheryl, we'd much rather see what you wore on the big day! Congratulations all the same. SR
