She's been lying low since confirming her split from boyfriend Liam Payne following a two-and-half year romance.
But Cheryl made her grand return to the limelight on Monday night when she attended Simon Cowell's star-studded Syco party at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
The pop princess, 35, looked stunning in a bright orange dress as she arrived at the event in style, showing the One Direction singer, 24, what he was missing.

Cheryl ensured she was the centre of attention in the eye-catching number, featuring dramatic ruffled detailing on the sleeves and at the bodice.
The cold-shoulder number boasted a low-cut neckline and a subtle slit running up the front of the dress.
The former Girls Aloud star showed no sign of her recent heartbreak as she glided into the V&A, putting her best foot forward in a pair of strappy gold heels.

Host of the night Simon, 58, was joined by his partner Lauren Silverman as he attended his star-studded bash.
The music mogul appeared in a giddy mood as he pulled a series of incredibly animated facial expressions as he stepped out of his taxi.
The X Factor judge - who sported a sunburnt complexion - opted for his signature suave appearance as he donned a sharp black shirt, which he left partially unbuttoned to reveal his chest.

Proving to be a starry affair, the pair were joined by a bevy of celebs, including former X Factor judge Tulisa, as well as his exes Terri Seymour and Sinitta.
Simon - who maintains a good relationship with his former girlfriends - was in a relationship with 46-year-old Terri from 2002 to 2008, while he dated the So Macho hitmaker, 50, on and off for twenty years after meeting in the eighties.
TV host Terri looked effortlessly chic in a clingy floral frock as she attended the bash with her partner Clark Mallon.
Sinitta showcased her trademark daring style as she wore a crisp white shirt and pinstripe trousers, tied in with an elaborate matching fedora hat.
It was previously reported that Cheryl and Liam's lack of compatibility was the reason behind their relationship ending.
Sources told The Sun that the now-former couple had very little in common as well as differing views on social media and the public eye, and that partially contributed to the end of their romance.
The source told the publication: 'Liam wants to make his pop career work, so he's happy to fly all over the world and keep in touch by Facetime.
'He's obsessed with social media and putting his life on there – he loves being famous. Cheryl on the other hand, is very private and her number one priority is Bear.
At odds: Cheryl and Liam Payne reportedly 'had nothing in common' and that contributed to their split, sources have told The Sun
'She always puts him first, and loves to stay at home with him. In the end, they just didn't have much in common.'
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Cheryl and Liam Payne for further comment.
This comes following reports that Liam 'had to be pulled away' from Cheryl's former husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, two days before his split from the Fight For This Love singer.
Old times: Cheryl married Fernandez-Versini on Mustique in the West Indies on July 7, 2014, having known each other for about 12 weeks. They divorced 18-months later
The One Direction star reportedly challenged French restaurateur Jean-Bernard, 37, to a fight during an appearance at Marylebone nightspot Chiltern Firehouse on Friday.
But employees at the restaurant, a popular destination for celebrities, stepped in amid fears the situation would escalate, according to The Sun.
A source told the publication: 'JB asked his friend why this guy was eyeballing him and then he realised it was his ex's fella. Liam was snarling and beckoning him over for a fight.
'There was a lot of gesturing, goading each other and making threats across the room. Staff were worried JB would be provoked as he boxes every day.
'But he assured them he was not looking for a fight and would leave because he was getting on an early flight.'
The source added that Fernandez-Versini remained calm throughout the episode, later telling friends that he was reluctant to start a fight in the Firehouse and claiming Liam needed 'a hug, not a punch.'
It's understood that Liam had reacted angrily to seeing the Frenchman, Cheryl's second husband, because he believes he 'wasn't very nice to her' during their fleeting 18-month marriage.
The Fight For This Love singer was handed a decree nisi ending her marriage to Fernandez-Versini at the Central Family Court in London in October 2016.
Cheryl later sparked a relationship with Liam, who is 10-years her junior, after One Direction performed on The X Factor shortly after her divorce.
The couple announced the birth of son Bear on Mother's Day 2017, little more than a year before rumours of a rift started to circulate.
Cheryl has since confirmed their split in a tweet addressed to her 7million Twitter followers on Sunday evening.

She wrote: 'We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.'
Moments later Liam shared the same tweet with his own followers on the micro-blogging site.
It's understood that the One Direction star has already moved out of the lavish £5 million mansion he shared with Cheryl and Bear in leafy Surrey.
According to The Sun, the couple had mutually agreed to separate a fortnight ago following months of speculation regarding the state of their relationship.
