Michelle Keegan‘s hot new Lipsy Holiday Collection drops TODAY, and we’ve got an exclusive first peek at the range with this brand new video!
Get yourself in the mood for your next vaycay by watching the gorgeous lady herself model her playsuits, kaftans and swimwear as she frolicks on the beach, long tousled locks blowing in the wind (we know, we’re already booking our flights too).
On top of this, we’ve also got our amazing new interview with Michelle to share with you.
We had a good old chin wag about all things style, beauty – and holidays! Well, it’s about time we got in the spring mood, dontcha think?
The 27 year old actress-turned-fashion designer is back with her second collection for high street retailor Lipsy, and this one promises to be the best yet. Ms Keegan dishes the goss, ahead of the launch…
We’re really excited about your new summer collection. What’s the theme for the range?
We’ve gone a bit more colourful, a bit more fun. We’ve added pom poms and sequins and we’ve added a lot of lace. I think it’s a bit more girly this one.
Wow – sounds really exciting! What pieces would you say you’re most excited about wearing?
Well, we’ve got two drops coming out. One is daywear and nightwear, and we’ve got the other holiday range.
I’m always excited for the night range because I wear a lot of dresses anyway – because I love them! I’ve never done a holiday drop before and I’m always struggling to get outfits for holidays. There are lots of playsuits, lots of cover-ups for the beach. I think girls find it difficult to find the right cover up to go with their bikini, and we’ve got some really cool, fun ones in this range so I’m really looking forward to that.
What was your design inspiration?
Very Festively, I suppose. The collections I’ve done so far have always been very classic; blacks, nudes and whites. With this one we’ve gone for more festival. We’ve got a lot of Aztec print as well, and a lot of texture with beading.
Which other celebrities would you love to see wearing your collection?
Cheryl. I think girls can relate to her and she always looks good in anything she wears.
What trends are you loving at the moment?
I love pastels. I don’t really wear a lot of bold colours.
Are there any trends that you would shy away from?
There’s nothing. I always say with fashion, as long as you’re comfortable wearing it and you feel confident, I think that shows.
Who do you love to follow on Instagram for fashion inspiration?
I follow Jessica Alba’s style. Whether it’s the day or the night, she always looks immaculate.
Do you follow any fashion blogs?
Yes! I follow a few.
Do you have a favourite?
Senstylabel. If you look at what they do on Instagram, their looks are very understated, with one piece making the outfit pop. Whether it’s a really nice coat, or a bag, or a pair of shoes.
You always look good when you go to the gym. Where would you say is the best place to get your gymwear from?
I go for the originals like Nike. But I like the fact that other people are doing sportswear now, like Lipsy. I’ve got a lot of the Lipsy sportswear range. And I’m not just saying that because I work with them!
What’s your skincare regime?
I use Simple wipes. I wash my face with Origin cleanser. To moisturise I use a light moisteriser, like Garnier or Origin. Every other day, or every three days, I’ll use a Kiehl Midnight Oil at night.
Michelle’s new Lipsy range will be available to buy on Thursday 5th February, but in the meantime, we’ve got a sneak peek for you.
