Cheryl Cole has been named the celebrity women would most like to go shopping with.
A survey commissioned by Lambrini revealed that the Girls Aloud singer and X-Factor judge – who is currently being treated for Malaria – came top of the poll, thanks to her keen eye for fashion and down to earth personality.
Friends actress, Jennifer Aniston came second in the poll, while style queen Victoria Beckham was third.
The fashionista Spice Girl – who has now become a top fashion designer – is well-known for her love of shopping and is rarely seen hitting the stores without her staple stilettos.
WAG, Coleen Rooney and Titanic star, Kate Winslet completed the top five.
Patrick Swan, celebrity stylist – who has teamed up with Lambrini to launch ‘Refresh your Wardrobe’ – giving women the chance to win a £2,000 personal shopping spree with him, said: ”Cheryl really is the nation’s sweetheart and our Lambrini ladies certainly admire not only her great sense of style but her honesty when she’s on our screens being a judge on X-Factor – the perfect attributes of a real shopping partner.
”Shopping is a big part of women’s lives – many women find it easy to grab a bargain and steal that style but some find it tough to get the look and pick up a purchase which suits them.
”But it looks like Cheryl would be the number one choice to help our Lambrini ladies look hot to trot at the end of a spree and who offers a sincere ear to share fashion quandaries with.”
Sixth place in the poll of 3,000 women went to pint-sized, pop princess Kylie Minogue, while ‘I Kissed a Girl’ singer, Katy Perry was in at number seven.
Lily Allen, who has announced she is retiring from her music career, came eighth and fashion designer, Vivienne Westwood was at nine.
Singer Charlotte Church, who is nursing a broken heart after splitting from rugby-player boyfriend Gavin Henson completed the top ten.
The study found that 84 per cent of women think celebrities would make good shopping partners because they get daily one-to-one advice from a stylist – meaning they’re always up-to-date with the latest trends, while 92 per cent wished they could shop like a celebrity.
More than a third of women polled are most likely to go shopping on their own, but more than a quarter often drag their unlucky other half to the shops with them.
And, of the sixteen per cent of Lambrini ladies who usually do go shopping with their friends, 90 per cent say they make a day of it – have lunch and a enjoy a glass of their favourite tipple.
The study also revealed that while almost every woman wants honest advice from their shopping partner on a new outfit, 18 per cent admitted then having a row because it wasn’t what they wanted to hear.
Sue Beck, avid shopper and Senior Brand Manager for Lambrini, adds: ”The study revealed honesty is top of the list with our Lambrini lady shoppers.
”They want a ‘real’ shopping partner who isn’t afraid to be honest in the changing rooms and it looks like Cheryl has the dulcet Geordie tones to reassure our ladies and the frank opinion to keep it real. What’s also nice to see is that they enjoy making a day of it when they do go shopping with the girls.”
You can now enter the ‘Refresh Your Wardrobe’ competition when you buy a bottle of Lambrini from all major retailers.
