Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is arguably one of the hottest celebs on the planet, but we have picture proof the X Factor judge never used to look so utterly glamorous...

Digging through the fashion archives earlier, we stumbled across this absolute SHOCKER of a snap of Cheryl and former Girls Aloud bandmate Kimberly Walsh. To think fashionista Chezza donned such an ensemble as this is beyond belief, right?!

In the picture, which was taken a whopping eleven years ago in 2005, Cheryl looks like she has just stepped out of a dodgy Western film and rocks a very garish satin mint green basque (OUR EYES, AHH) and a brown bohemian skirt that sits incredibly low on her hips.

How it stayed up, we'll never know, but that's the least of our worries - the shoes are our main concern, right now - eek!

Beautiful Chezza - who is currently working on a brand new line of false eyelashes with Eyelure - channelled her inner grandma in a pair of pointed toe courts with - prepare yourselves - a kitten heel.

Yep, you read that right. A KITTEN HEEL. *Que the cringefest*

Just when we thought the look couldn't get any more retro, we noticed Cheryl's hair and make-up!

The Parachute singer is now synonymous with straight, sleek Kendall Jenner-esque tresses but back in the day she was a huge fan of, er, huge volume! Can we also just take a moment to weep over the green eye shadow and pink lip combo?

Oh dear, and let's not touch on the plastic hoop earrings, eh? Thanks.

Nowadays, you'll find the stunning star rocking all manner of chic designer frocks and her slap is always nothing short of flawless, so we'll forget this snap ever surfaced, yep?
