Sarah Harding ditches her rock chick image for a posh frock as she attends the Henley Regatta

Sarah Harding has never been one to turn down a party.

And yesterday was no exception for the Girls Aloud star as she joined the upper-class crowd at the Henley Regatta.

But gone was the party girl image of denim hotpants, tight vests and studded boots as she scrubbed up nicely in a navy blue maxi dress and elegant heels.

The 28-year-old pop star was accompanied by her DJ boyfriend Tom Crane to the annual event in Henley-On-Thames in Oxfordshire.

They were guests of the Mahiki nightclub, which threw a party for regatta-goers on a wicker-decorated balcony overlooking the river Thames.

The club also had its own boat which Sarah and a couple of friends took for a little float upstream.

And being a celebrity, she made her grand entrance by helicopter, which, unknown to her, delayed one of the races by half an hour.

An onlooker said: ‘It was quite windy and consequently the helicopter was delayed. She got stuck into the drinks and was in very high spirits.”

The civilised and upper-class event was a far cry from where she spent her weekend.


In full rock chick attire, she was snapped enjoying the hospitality at the Hard Rock Calling weekend in London.

The annual three-day event featured headlining acts from Pearl Jam, Stevie Wonder and Sir Paul McCartney.
