She's gone from a Girls Aloud singer to something of a fashion icon over the past few years.

And now it seems Nicola Roberts is trying to make a name for herself as an edgy fashionista, judging by her new look.

The 26-year-old singer debuted her new bright pink bob at the J.W.Anderson Afterparty held at Madam Jojo's following the London Fashion Week show.

Nicola wore a simple outfit of an
adidas T-shirt, printed jeans and black shoes to the event, ensuring all
the attention was on her new 'do.

The pink look is in sharp contrast to
the dip-dyed blonde locks Nicola had been showcasing earlier in the
week as she arrived for the Topshop Unique show.

Nicola tweeted her fans about her new look earlier in the day, writing: 'I got Pink hurr!'

The singer has been working hard forging a career for herself as a style icon, and is currently fronting Sky Living show Styled To Rock alongside Rihanna and her close friend, fashion designer Henry Holland.

Speaking previously about her sense
of style, Nicola told Rolling Stone magazine: 'If I like it, I like it.
Maybe I like things that are a bit different. You can't force style;
like everything else I do, it's based on how I feel.

'If it's too conscious, it's a lie
and false. I'm quite s**t at lying. I choose everything that I wear;
sometimes I'll work closely with a stylist to look at new options, but I
make the final choices.'

Nicola is now a regular face at London Fashion Week, and has already attended shows including Henry Holland, Topshop Unique and Moschino so far during the event.

Nicola later tweeted: 'Lovely spring summer collection from @Topshop .. So pretty x '
