We're used to seeing her strutting her stuff on stage in a series of sexy ensembles which showcase her incredible figure in all its glory.
But Cheryl Cole was virtually unrecognisable as she made her way through Los Angeles' LAX Airport on Friday with her boyfriend Tre Holloway in tow.
Attempting to go incognito as she touched down in sunny California, the 29-year-old singer donned a pair of sexy specs and covered up in a giant fur-trimmed parka jacket.
With her face barely visible as she giggled away with her backing dancer beau, the Girls Aloud star seemed to be having a whale of a time as the evidently smitten couple made their way through the airport.
The Geordie beauty looked a far cry from her usual preened and polished appearance, opting for a casual ensemble for her transatlantic flight.
Cheryl wrapped up warm in a cosy cream cowl-neck jumper, which she teamed with baggy ripped jeans and an 80s-style printed parka with cute fur detail around the sizeable hood.
The Call My Name singer completed her airport look with a pair of black buckle boots and an adorable patterned bobble hat, which would have been perfect for a Bonfire Night celebration back in the UK.
Meanwhile, Tre - who was looking at his leading lady adoringly as they made their way through the terminal - kept it equally casual in a red woollen hat, checked shirt, grey jeans and Converse trainers.
There's no wonder Cheryl seems to be smiling a lot of late, with her career seeming to go from strength to strength.
As well as recently completing a sell-out solo tour of the UK, the star released her debut autobiography last month, and recently announced plans to reunite with the rest of Girls Aloud for a comeback tour and album.
And Cheryl could be set to make a triumphant return to the small screen following her sacking from the US X Factor in 2011.
The singer is in talks to sign a 'lucrative deal' with Sky1 to front her own chat show, with television bosses hoping her personable nature could see her follow in the footsteps of US chat show queen, Oprah Winfrey.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: 'Sky1 are desperate to get Cheryl to sign up. They’ve been in talks for a while and believe they will have wrapped up the deal within the next month.'
