Coyle Blimey! A leggy Nadine heads to concert after-party with Girls Aloud... but Cheryl Cole is a no show
By HANNA FLINT
Girls Aloud headed to a London club Sunday night, to celebrate their final performance at the O2.
But there was a noticeable absence from the group's line-up: Cheryl Cole.
And not even four smiling faces and Nadine Coyle's show of leg could distract from the missing member.
Party time! Girls Aloud celebrate the end of their London concerts but Cheryl Cole was missing
Nadine, 27, Kimberley Walsh, 31, Nicola Roberts, 27, and Sarah Harding, 31, all wore matching grins to the after-party at London's Whiskey Mist, as well as a colourful array of fashion choices.
Nadine's Daffodil yellow bodycon dress stood out the most, not just because of the vibrant tint, but also the very short length of the skirt.
The Irish singer's slender legs seemed to go on forever, eventually leading to a pair of black and gold platform sandals.
Leggy: Nadine's bodycon dress made her slender pins look they could go on forever
Graceful exit: With a dress that short, Nadine had to take care as she jumped out of the car
Solo: The Irish singer arrived on her own to the after-party
One accessory she did leave in the car though was her toy dog Lola.
Nicola chose a golden floral printed shift dress,a Brigitte Bardot bouffant hairdo and heavy eyeliner look that together created a sixties homage to the Hollywood icon.
A toned Kimberley looked to the eighties for her party outfit, wearing a cropped sequined racer-back top in gold with a pair of skintight, lined black trousers with black peep-toe heels.
Sarah Harding covered up in a multicoloured jumpsuit, turquoise sandals and a black handbag, manicure and pedicure to match.

Bardot: Nicola created a sixties homage to the Hollywood icon, in a gold shift dress, bouffant hair and heavy black eyeliner
Footloose: Quiffed hair, hoops, cropped top and skintight black trousers made up Kimberley's eighties look
Vibrant: Sarah Harding covers up in a multicoloured top and trousers by Milly for the party at Whiskey Mist in London
Helping hand: Sarah is escorted into the venue by a minder after posing with some fans
Sadly, Cheryl did not join them, no doubt nursing the sickness she had developed during the course of their reunion tour.
Sources at Saturday night's concert told MailOnline Cheryl, 29, was fighting off an infection and despite getting a huge uplift from the crowd the brunette had taken an energy jab to get her through the gruelling show.
Male support: Conor Maynard and Nadine's ex-boyfriend Jason Bell arrived a the nightclub too
Fail! Gavin Henson tries and fails to gain entry to Whiskey Mist
Looking after the car: Nadine brought her dog Lola along but left her in the vehicle as she headed inside
Onlookers said they couldn't believe she was ill, with many tweeting afterwards comments of support:
'Cheryl gave it her all, what a proper trooper,' one fan declared.
The five girls, who are touring the country as part of their Ten reunion, had the added pressure of filming for their celebratory tour DVD on the Saturday night performance.
Final night: Despite illness, Cheryl gave it her all on the stage
DVD: The girls were performing not just for the London audience but for those who buy their tour film, recording that night of their tour
Pearly queen: Nicola's beaded dress is just one of the many extravagant costumes designed for the tour
So while Cheryl, 29, recuperated, her bandmates let their hair down with Conor Maynard and Nadine's ex-boyfriend Jason Bell, who was also seen entering the Mayfair venue.
One former popstar's squeeze didn't make the list though - Gavin Henson was seen being turned away by security after he arrived allegedly drunk with a few people.
As one onlooker saw, flashing twenty pound notes clearly didn't do him any favours either.
Distant? Some fans said Nadine looked more separate from the group during the show
