Mollie King Models 'Loved By Mollie' For Oasis
Mollie King showed off her fashion stripes last night as she was revealed as style store Oasis's new brand ambassador, sharing her handpicked capsule collection with InStyle.
The singer, style icon and InStyle blogger Mollie debuted her 45-piece fashion edit – that launches in stores and online today – at an intimate dinner in Soho wearing a chic burgundy ensemble, including a leather midi skirt pulled straight from the collection.
The new 'Loved By Mollie' AW13 collection is said to be styled on the girl herself featuring her personal fashion favourites like oversized coats in on-trend pastels, tapestry prints and leather separates, thanks to her keen love of clothes.
When questioned about her own look, the style savvy star told us that while she was used to having her outfits picked over in the media, it was her family's fashion advice she always trusted first.
'My nan has just learned how to use Google News,' she said. 'Sometimes she'll text me to tell me that she liked last night's outfit, which I love. If my grandparents like it, I know it's a winner.'
Mollie, who simultaneously announced her new signing to Next model management, celebrated being the first celebrity partner for the high street store, paving the way for an exciting career in the fashion industry.
Going solo for her new fashion project, The Saturdays' sweetheart said she wasn't quite ready do a Victoria Beckham just yet, though she hoped to follow in the footsteps of the fashion mogul who created her own style empire after leaving her girl band roots behind.
'Music will always be my number one and I hope The Saturdays continue for much longer. The girls are all so happy for me,' she told us.
'Victoria Beckham is my idol. I was in the same room as her once and I really wanted a photo but I chickened out. I grew up with the Spice Girls - I would die if I thought she'd heard of The Saturdays.'
Mollie's new 'Loved By Mollie' collection hits stores today, view the collection in full now.
