Quick change: LeAnn hits the shops in two outfits while Eddie entertains the children in Malibu

Blue: LeAnn Rimes looked the very opposite as she was all smiles shopping in Malibu today

If there's one thing little boys hate, it's shopping, so LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian played it smart today and split up to do their own thing after lunch in Malibu today.

The girls hit the upscale boutiques and the boys went for a stroll in the park as temperatures hit the high 70s in Los Angeles over Thanksgiving weekend.

LeAnn looked happy and healthy after criticism over the summer that she was too thin.

Earlier in the day LeAnn was wearing a mini-skirt and cardigan as she browsed in the boutiques.

But as the temperature rose she changed into something more summery
The 29-year-old singer showed off her curves in a clingy blue jersey dress teamed with black gladiator sandals.

She completed her look with an armful of gold bangles and a pair of aviator sunglasses.

The Northern Lights star clutched a large snakeskin tote as she made her way through the upscale Malibu Country Mart with a girlfriend.

Known for her rich vocals, LeAnn found fame as an eight-year-old champion on the original Ed McMahon version of Star Search.

She released her first single, Blue, originally written for Patsy Cline when she was only 13.

'I've gone through it all, at a very young age. But I think one of my base accomplishments is that I have been able to handle it very well,' said LeAnn on a recent appearance on BBC Breakfast.

'Trust me I have my moments, but I've been doing it so long' she added, 'I've been one of the very few who have come through as a true artist on the other side of the child star kind of thing. I'm prouder of my work than I've ever been.'

LeAnn's career seems to be going from strength to strength at the moment.

She recently starred with Burt Reynolds in a romantic comedy on the Country Music Channel and was nominated for an American Music Award in the category of Favorite Female Country Artist.

She is also in the middle of an American tour.

Cibiran, 38, on the other hand has just had his show The Playboy Club cancelled by NBC after just three episodes.

The 1963-set drama failed to capture the Mad Men style nostalgia it was aiming for and was yanked amidst criticisms about weak performances and misogynistic storylines.

The pair lunched together at the trendy Cafe Habana, owned by Cindy Crawford's husband Rande Gerber.

They then went their separate ways with Cibrian taking his sons from his previous marriage to Real Housewives of Beverly Hill, star Brandi Glanville to the park while Rimes went shopping with a friend.

They later also left in separate cars.
