In their fishtail gowns, Girls Aloud were most certainly leading the style stakes at the Royal Albert Hall.
Posting the pic on Twitter, Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts were snapped getting ready backstage before their performance on the Royal Variety Show.
Whilst Sarah Harding kept up the glamour as she left the venue, Cheryl Cole ditched the gown for a much more casual look.
Leaving through the back door, the Geordie singer had pulled on a large dark grey sweatshirt.
But despite performing, the highlight for the girls was meeting the Queen, as they all tweeted their excitement at getting the royal seal of approval.
