The 48-year-old star also revealed the unlikely inspiration behind her makeover… her very own childhood haircut. Sharing a throwback to her younger years, Geri joked she had tried to emulate her locks from when she was just three years old.

Modelling a gorgeous white lace dress with frill detailing on the shoulders, the star was seen posing in a doorway, debuting her darker locks and choppy fringe. Geri posted: "DIY Fringe! Swipe right to back when I was 3".

The star – who is a doting mum to children Bluebell and Monty, who she raises with husband Christian Horner – previously revealed why she has taken to wearing only white, ditching the vibrant minidresses and figure-hugging gym wear of her younger years.

She told The Sun: "My wardrobe is like looking at the French Alps - a vast expanse of white.

"Everything becomes really simple. I like the colour, and it's like wearing a school uniform as an adult… It's great for busy people - it kind of looks like you've made an effort when you haven't."
