There may be four decades between them but Cilla Black and Cheryl Cole proved that age is a state of mind as they strutted their stuff down the catwalk tonight.
Sixties icon Miss Black, 65, showed off her famously slender legs to the applauding Fashion for Relief crowd when she appeared wearing just a pair of black tights as part of a glamorous Cabaret-style outfit.
She wore a white shirt and long Yves Saint Laurent jacket, top hat and bow tie along with jewellery by Garrard.

Meanwhile Girls Aloud star and new X Factor judge Miss Cole, 25, showed of her tiny physique in a figure hugging red sequined Jean Paul Gautier gown before changing into a short pink Balmain cocktail dress.
She was cheered on from the sidelines by husband Ashley Cole and bandmate Sarah Harding.
Miss Cole only started wearing her wedding ring this week after reports in January that her husband had been unfaithful with a hairdresser he met in a nightclub.

The event is the third annual Fashion for Relief show organised by Miss Campbell and the second to be held in London.

Last year the model raised £1million for victims of the floods in Gloucestershire.
