Former Girls Aloud bandmates Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts ooze elegance in sophisticated dresses as they step out together at charity bash
They had a mini Girls Aloud reunion at the Pride of Britain Awards earlier this week.
And it appears that Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts were in need of another girls’ night as they made a joint appearance at the Nepal Youth Foundation fundraising event in London on Thursday night.
Hosted by David Walliams at the capital’s Banqueting House, the pop princesses put their fashionable feet forward as they stepped out to enjoy a night of comedy together at the charity event.
The billowing sleeves and high-neck design of the floaty garment earned her top style points.
Her porcelain pins were on display in the mini-dress, which she styled with black suede heels.
The flame-haired songstress, 29, teased her auburn locks into loose waves with one side pulled neatly behind her ear, showing off her gold hooped earrings.
Nicola’s beauty look consisted of classic winged eyeliner and nude lips, which complemented her alabaster skin to perfection.
Last Wednesday (28.9.15) saw Nicola meet up with former band mates and best friends Cheryl and Kimberley at The Pride Of Britain Awards.
The threesome looked stunning!

She’s Something Kinda Ooooh! Nicola Roberts shows off her style credentials in floral embroidered dress as she attends the House Of Holland LFW show
She has been the perfect model displaying an array of high-end designer ensembles during London Fashion Week.
So it is hardly surprising, Nicola Roberts once again rocked a very different style as she supported her pal Henry Holland at the official House Of Holland show on Saturday.
Turning heads as she passed by, the former Girls Aloud singer looked absolutely sensational in a peasant-style inspired outfit.
With her red locks left loose in tousled waves, a rose-tinted lip and well-defined eyes rounded off the proceedings perfectly.
She stood tall in an envy-inducing pair of black velvet heels, while carrying her special invite – a wooden jewellery box – to the star-studded event.
Ahead of the show, Nicola took to her social media sites to post: ‘So excited for Henry’s show this eve.. Invites are MEGA! @henryholland@house_of_holland #VECollabCatwalk #LFW.’
Later adding: ‘Congratulations to Henry and everyone at House Of Holland for an incredible collection.. @henryholland @house_of_holland #LFW #VECollabCatwalk.’
Once inside the event, the 29-year-old mingled with the likes of Daisy Lowe, Alexa Chung, Poppy Delevingne and Nick Grimshaw.

Could it be your, could it be your lucky day? Well, if you’re a Nicola Roberts fan, it’s probably not, sorry.
The former Girls Aloud member recently revealed in an interview with the U.K.’s Radio 1 Newsbeat that she currently doesn’t have any solid plans to release new solo material, at least not in the near future. Instead, she’s been taking her time writing music for other artists’ projects.
“At the minute I’ve just been taking time to write for other artists,” Roberts explained to the British radio station. “It’s been four years since Cinderella’s Eyes, and in that four years I’ve changed quite a lot as a person… I think you need time to figure out the sounds you are inspired by and I’ve got some really exciting artists cutting some songs that I’m really excited by.”
Roberts released her solo debut record Cinderella’s Eyes in 2011, a glistening electro-pop album that received critical acclaim from music critics, yet somehow unfortunately didn’t perform quite as well as anticipated commercially. The record, which was headed up by the Diplo-produced single “Beat Of My Drum,” was not released in the U.S. (Though I totally imported a copy from Amazon U.K.)
In addition to talking to Radio 1 about her current career trajectory, Roberts also shared her thoughts on the music industry’s lack of support for writers behind the scenes. “We have so many talented writers,” she said. “Companies need to understand that smaller writers also need to be supported. Younger writers and smaller writers need to live and get by. They need to be paid. It has to be fair.”
And while it’s hard to disagree with her, there is also something a little unfair about having to wait indefinitely for new solo music from the redheaded pop singer. Oh Nicola, I don’t want to be the last to know oh, oh, oh! Will it be a yes or no oh, oh, oh? You’re swinging me up, you’re swinging me down, I feel like yo-yo, yo-yo, yo-yo…

Flame-haired beauty Nicola Roberts is chic in striped pencil dress as she joins sister Frankie at House of Holland bash
In place of her four former bombshell bandmates, Nicole Roberts brought along a stunner from her own family to attend a private dinner with Henry Holland on Thursday night.
Girls Aloud star Nicola was joined by younger sister Frankie at a showcase for her designer pal’s Resort 2016 collection.
And the two redheads were dressed (and tressed) to impress as they turned out in sophisticated maxi dresses for the occasion.
She looked simply exquisite with a dark cat eye flick on her lids and her flame-coloured hair swept into a classic, high-rise hairstyle.
Fashion blogger Frankie kept things minimal in a navy blue midi and white peep toe heels, similarly opting for dark eye make-up and a nude lipstick to complement her sister.
Nicola, a keen fashion follower, was supporting her friend Henry, whose fashion house was originally set up in 2008.
It’s little wonder that Nicola is front and centre for all of his shows and exhibitions, because she was hailed his ‘muse and heroine’ during an interview with Stylist magazine in 2010.
The pair previously worked together on Sky Living’s Styled To Rock, which featured Rihanna as executive producer and the inspiration for a group of British students who were striving for success in the fashion industry.
Nicola has most recently presented her own style-themed documentary for BBC iPlayer, called High Street Hijabis.
She and Muslim style and beauty vlogger Nabiilabee explore ‘modest fashion’ and how Muslim women are balancing their Western identities with their Eastern religion and cultures.
Her thoughts have recently turned back to music nonetheless and the starlet revealed to Radio 1’s Newsbeat that she’s writing for other musicians.
‘At the minute I’ve just been taking time to write for other artists. It’s been four years since Cinderella’s Eyes [her debut solo album] and in that four years I’ve changed quite a lot as a person.
‘I think you need time to figure out the sounds you are inspired by and I’ve got some really exciting artists cutting some songs that I’m really excited by.’
Small songwriters need to be paid by big music companies
he former Girls Aloud singer made the comments when asked about Taylor Swift’s recent letter to Apple.
Apple wasn’t going to pay artists during their free three-month trial streaming period. But they are now.
“We have so many talented writers. Companies need to understand that smaller writers also need to be supported,” she tells Newsbeat.
“Younger writers and smaller writers need to live and get by. They need to be paid. It has to be fair.”
Lots of artists, including Girls Aloud, work with other writers or perform tracks other people have written for them.
In April, Newsbeat spoke to Jimmy Napes who has worked with acts like Sam Smith and Clean Bandit. He also picked up the best contemporary song award at this year’s Ivor Novello Awards for his work on Rather Be.
He said it was “nice to be acknowledged” for all the hard work writers do.
Nicola says pop music is in a good place and that she’s a big fan of Little Mix.
“Little Mix are hilarious. Whenever I’ve been in the studio with Little Mix I’ve had the best time ever,” she says.
“I continuously say those girls need their own TV show. I’m so happy for them that their single is at number one this week and I hope their record does equally as well.
“I love them.”
There are no plans for Girls Aloud to reunite and Roberts’ second solo album won’t be coming anytime soon.
“At the minute I’ve just been taking time to write for other artists.
“It’s been four years since Cinderella’s Eyes [her debut solo album] and in that four years I’ve changed quite a lot as a person.
“I think you need time to figure out the sounds you are inspired by and I’ve got some really exciting artists cutting some songs that I’m really excited by.”
Nicola wouldn’t say which artists she’d been working with because the sessions might not end up on their final album.
It’s not just music Nicola is working on. She’s been speaking to Newsbeat because she’s co-presenting a Radio 1 and 1Xtra Stories documentary.
High Street Hijabis will be broadcast on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra on Tuesday 14 July at 9pm.
Nicola says it was a great opportunity for her to learn about a topic she didn’t really know about.
“The biggest revelation I found was that Islam, to these young hijab-wearing women, is not black and white.
“There’s a lot of grey areas and I didn’t really realise it was about the personal journey of each person.
“I just saw the religion as very black and white and you either follow the religion entirely or you don’t. It’s not really like that.
“It was just a great opportunity for me to have a real insight and learn firsthand from these really cool young women who are trying to find themselves within western fashion and culture but also stay true to their religion and respect their faith.”
Nicola has done a 15 minute documentary for the BBC, see more below:
