You might recall the morsel we threw up yesterday regarding Cheryl Cole getting approximately €300k for 30 minutes work at a private doo in Cannes? Well, the claims were true, here she is attending said event.

The Sun(/ my brackety bits) reports: "The Parachute singer performed at a star-studded dinner party hosted by jewellery firm De Grisogono in Cannes. She chose her trademark slashed trousers and revealing gold top for the private appearance at the swanky Hotel Du Cap. Cheryl, who stars in the L'Oreal ads, arrived in a stunning floor-length lack dress (if you hung it off a balcony), accompanied by new best friend (/human rumour mill), Blackeyed Peas star WILL.I.AM. Paris Hilton (who must have split herself in two for the occasion, considering she was also walking up the carpet at the World Music Awards. Or maybe she just made herself invisable, as I'm unable to locate any photos of her in the gallery), (a sweaty) Lionel Richie, Myleene Klass, Meg Ryan('s perma mask) and Naomi Campbell were among the celebs watching the exclusive performance (there were also a load of sun scorched men of a certain age teamed with women who love them for their minds: exhibit A, B, C, and D). And Cheryl was set to bag a few glittering Grisogono jewellery goodies along with her massive pay cheque. After her triumphant set on the French Riviera, Will whisked her to Monaco to watch him perform at the World Music Awards. And this summer she is set to join him in Barcelona, where he has asked for a joint dressing room and is treating her to a meal from a Michelin star restaurant."

She still doesn't fancy him, though.

IT giddle of yore Tamara Beckwith, Denise Rich, some creature, Magherita Missoni in a typical creation that would snag with the blink of an eye, and yet another bum crack were also in attendance.
