Talking tongues: The X Factor USA judge showed her cheeky side after the Habemus Papam film premier in Cannes last night
She's already worried about how U.S. audiences will handle her Geordie accent... but they'll think she's talking in tongues after this.
The X Factor USA judge showed her naughty side to photographers yesterday as she headed home from the Habemus Papam film premiere in Cannes last night.
As she stepped into the cab to take her home, she couldn't resist poking her tongue out as she was whisked away.
Tongues of class: She had stepped out in a figure-hugging sparkly dress for the Italian movie's L'Oreal after party with a slicked-back ponytail and dark plum-coloured lipstick
An onlooker said: 'Cheryl looked in sparkling form after the party, in more ways than one.
'She had clearly had a good time having managed to strike the perfect balance between stylish and sexy.'
But Cheryl managed to look both sexy and elegant in the white creation.
Cheryl teamed the dress with an unusual belt, which featured what appeared to be two gold pears on the front, and gold clutch bag.

She appeared poised and confident as she posed for photographers on the red carpet at the premiere.
She then decided to make an appearance at the party hosted by L'Oreal, the cosmetics company of which she is the face.
The choice was a sharp contrast to Cheryl's usual appearance of voluminous hair and fresh-faced make-up.
