Manchester Pride & Cheryl Cole sparkle with Crystal Parade's Swarovski crystals. Every day is different in the office at Crystal Parade. In August we were fortunate to work with the very talented Jack Irvine and team again to help them select the correct colours for Cheryl’s sexy black high cut leotard for her performance at Manchester Pride Live.

Jack sent across a photo of the colour pallet and the measurements. We matched the Swarovski colours in the colour scheme Jack wished to recreate and advised on the quantity required. Size SS20 were used.

Cheryl's Crystal Costume

Brown – Smoked Topaz

Deep Purple – Purple Velvet

Pink – Fuchsia

Rich Gold – Topaz

The former Girls Aloud star helped the city of Manchester celebrate the LGBT and community by performing at the 4 day event.

Cheryl opened her appearance with an emotional speech about equal rights which included:

"My name's Cheryl and I believe in Love...together tonight we are celebrating the right to love and be loved by whoever we choose in our lifetime and I believe we should fight for this love".

Cheryl made a grand entrance wrapped in a huge LGBTQ flag which was unravelled and revealed Fight for this Love.

Cheryl’s performance was a great hit with the Manchester audience, with her Girls Aloud medley and energetic dance breakdowns.  However, it was her sexy black high cut leotard with Swarovski sparkle which got everyone talking.
