# Mollie King Launches Her New Oasis Collection – And We Have The First Pictures

The Saturdays singer has curated her new Loved By Mollie collection for spring

Mollie King's last two Loved By Mollie collections have proved instant best-sellers for Oasis, and this season's instalment promises to be no different.

Comprising 15 key pieces from the high street store's spring summer collection, Mollie's curated edit is pretty much your capsule wardrobe for the new season. Plus, it's got the stylish Saturdays singer's stamp of approval – what's not to love?

And if you need any help styling up the different buys, which tap into SS15's key trends with pieces such as wide-legged trousers, a block heel and a pink flirty dress, as well as spring/summer staples like a jersey striped top and tan sandals, then we suggest you look to Ms King for inspiration.

‘It’s been a fantastic experience working with Oasis and I couldn’t be more pleased with the reception the last two edits have received,' Mollie said.

'Oasis have always been my go-to brand for classic style staples whenever I need a wardrobe update, so to work with the team so closely and be given license to curate my own favourite pieces for the past three seasons has been a really amazing experience. I can’t wait to wear the latest edit.'

# Fringing, Your Summer Style Sorted.

Fringing, it’s the statement trim of the season and trust us, it’s everywhere. Cast your minds back to September when Alberta Ferretti sent out look after look of tassled tan suede, well, now the high street is awash with cow-girl appeal too. But if the Western way doesn’t work for you, there’s fly-way flapper fringes and seriously trialing raw edges to suit. Here’s three ways we’ll be wearing it this summer.

Hell For Leather 

A fringed leather jacket isn’t exactly breaking news but with fringing at fashion's forefront and festie season fast approaching, it’s the perfect way to embrace a new trend and keep your nonchalant, cool-girl status. Last year Poppy Delevingne wore hers poolside at her Coachella hen do, and least we forget Miss Moss’ annual ode at Glastonbury. This season you can forget a single line of tassels. Ladies, we urge you, go all-out for Summer and choose a style with lashings of slashed leather tails. For a payday splurge, go for this ThePerfext from Avenue 32 or if it’s a bargainous fix you need, head straight to Mango.

Pretty Playful 

For the softest take on the 70’s, it’s got to be suede. And an accessory such as a bag is the simplest way to do it. The teal colour pop of this Miss Selfridge rucksack means its more refined then rodeo but the patchwork boarder keeps its Navajo credentials in check. Use it to update a button-down skirt and peasant blouse combo or check into Folklore trend and team with an embroidered dress. Pretty Perfect.

After Dark

A parade of nylon fringing will add a flirty finish to an evening look, add-in a smudge of red lipstick and its all-out vintage glamour. But if you’re not a Gatsby gal, that’s ok too, because fringing doesn’t just mean flapper. In fact if this killer look from Dsquared2 is an indication, fringing doesn’t have to mean classic tassels at all. The stings of black beading on these sandals and shirt hang long and loose, giving then a decadent fringe effect with a glossy edge. It’s fringing ladies, but not as you know it Hell for Leather


Fashion people will flock to Palm Springs in April for two back-to-back weekends of music, parties and general debauchery at Coachella — and just one month later, they'll all have a reason to head right back. Nicolas Ghesquière has chosen the chic desert city as the location for Louis Vuitton's resort show on May 6, a rep for the brand has confirmed. The event falls just days before Dior's resort show on May 9, which is conveniently located a short road trip away in Los Angeles.

These destination shows are becoming a regular feature for Ghesquière, who showed last year's resort collection in Monaco. He's also the latest in a string of top-tier designers, including Tom Ford and Saint Laurent's Hedi Slimane, who are giving the West Coast serious cred as the next major fashion capital. Plus, considering Palm Springs's proximity to Hollywood (and the aforementioned Dior show), we're expecting a number of the designer's famous muses to be in attendance.

Sorry Coachella, but we're thinking this might be the most stylish event the desert has seen in quite some time.


Brace yourselves: super human Serena Williams is Vogue's April cover star. The 33-year-old athlete looks every bit the epic tennis star that she is in a blue Rag & Bone sheath dress for the magazine's annual "Shape Issue." Someone get her an ad campaign, stat!

While some celebrities have called for boycotts of Dolce & Gabbana based on the design duo's insensitive comments about in vitro fertilization, Zoe Saldana feels that blacklisting the designers from her wardrobe would be "the stupidest thing." The actress says that, while she wouldn't have been so public about such a sensitive topic, she believes that everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion.

Once again, accessories buyers are keen to snatch up pieces adhering to fall 2015's '70s trend. Yes, it's a repeat, but many were impressed by the diversity, with designers expressing "a schizophrenic take on the Seventies." Start investing in fringe now, people.

Kendall Jenner's latest video advertisement for Estée Lauder is here, showcasing the limited edition Courrèges Paris collection. This time around, she looks significantly less awkward than she did in her first Estée Lauder video.

After 7,500 Condé Nast interns testified that their services went unpaid, the publishing company agreed to pay a $5.9 million settlement. On Wednesday, the company contacted those who interned from July 2007 through December 2014 to let them know that they're now eligible to file for a $700 to $1,900 stipend.

Score one for Juicy. Elizabeth Arden secured Victoria's Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo as the face of Juicy Couture's newest fragrance, launching in July.

Here come the shoes! Sophia Webster is launching a "fun and classic" bridal shoes collection. The line will be available on Webster's own website and Net-a-Porter and features styles ranging from satin pumps to the sandals the designer wore on her own wedding day.

Lingerie tycoon Michelle Mone launches new Manchester Ultimo outlet

Michelle Mone was at House of Fraser on Deansgate to officially open the boutique, which is the first outside her home city of Glasgow

Glamorous model-turned lingerie boss Michelle Mone has launched Ultimo’s first concession in Manchester.

Michelle Mone was at House of Fraser on Deansgate yesterday to officially open the boutique, which is the first outside her home city of Glasgow.

The blonde bombshell entrepreneur, 43, said: “It’s really exciting. When we picked the stores, obviously I wanted Glasgow first because that’s my home town, but I love Manchester and it had to be next - even before London.

“It’s just cool, isn’t it?”

The outlet is the first of 12 new openings across the UK, with more in Manchester on the way next year.

Michelle said: “I want customers to experience shopping the Ultimo way: the way we fit - I would say it’s the best - the attention to detail and the way we train our staff.

“I hope customers will enjoy it.”

Customer loyalty hasn’t been a problem so far - it is now nearly 15 years since the first Ultimo bra hit the shelves and they haven’t stopped flying off them since.

Michelle, who came up with the idea for the business while wearing an uncomfortable bra to a dinner dance, credits its success with knowing what her customers want.

She said: “When you look at other big lingerie companies they are all run by men and they will go from meeting to meeting to meeting saying we can’t do this, we can’t do that.

“And I’m like: ‘Yes we will. Women need this.

“Sometimes I’m wrong - but not a lot. Most of the time I’m right on what women want.”

It has been a tough couple of years for Michelle after a very public divorce from her ex-husband and former business partner Michael.

But now after forging a new business partnership with Sri Lanka-based lingerie group MAS Holdings, she is bouncing back.

As well as her lingerie empire she now has her own fake tan brand, UTan, and travels all over the world as a business speaker, something she gets a “real kick out of”.

There is also a tell-all autobiography on the horizon.

“It’s going to be explosive,” Michelle said.

“Some of it I’ve never spoken to anyone about. Sending it off I thought: ‘Should I? Shouldn’t I?’

“But I’ve just gone for it and been open and honest. I think that’s the only way to do it.

“I’ve changed my life so much and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.

“I’ve travelled around the world talking to thousands of people and everywhere I go, people always ask: ‘When’s your book coming out?’ Maybe it might inspire people to change their lives too.

“I just felt it was the right time and I’m all or nothing. If I’m going to do something it’s going to be all.”

Wedding Underwear Advice To Help You Feel Sleek On Your Big Day

Found The Dress? Now for the lingerie. InStyle's resident bride-to-be Lucy Pavia asked Rigby & Peller lingerie stylist Kelly Dunmore on her tips for picking out just the right set, whether you're plus size or an A-cup.

1) It sounds obvious but... 

"Don't leave it until the last minute! The most common mistake I see with brides is that they think about their lingerie last. Lingerie and your dress need to work hand in hand to achieve that perfect silhouette. You would be surprised how many brides fail to try their lingerie on under their dress until the big day!"

2) Wedding lingerie doesn't have to be white 

"Ivory doesn’t actually compliment all skin tones, and particularly when the ivory tones of the lingerie and the dress simply don’t match, we recommend blush pinks and nudes."

3) Can't find the perfect set? Try made-to-measure

"It is much more affordable then you think! A made-to-measure set is often a great way of getting something which ticks all the boxes and really is something special."

4) Buy two sets instead of one

"Choosing wedding underwear can often be a struggle between functionality and beauty. A quick wardrobe change in the evening can ensure that you have had all of the support of something in the day with the 'wow' piece for the wedding night. Very few brides want the grand reveal on their wedding night to be shapewear!"

5) Match your underwear to the cut of the dress

"VPLs are one of a lingerie stylist's worst nightmares! I often advise that brides choose pieces which work with the cut of their dress, so for example if you have a slinky fishtail I would suggest shorts, or if you have something nipped in at the waist go high waisted. It is all about following the line of the dress and ensuring that pieces can’t be seen under certain lights. Of course for really slinky dresses – it's probably simplest to forgo everything!"

 6) If you want to make your waist look smaller...

"A waist clincher by Spanx (skinny britches) is perfect, it is silk so it's a really pretty-looking shapewear option. It is, however, boned so you need to be mindful as to whether this works with your wedding dress. Though any type of basque is designed to pull you in at the waist and flatten the tummy."

7) If you're feeling self-conscious about your tummy...

"Again the waist clincher by Spanx and a basque will help on the big day. However, many brides forget flattering looks for honeymoon! Here the resurgence on the runway of the swimming costume has really helped – Brazilian brand Lenny Niemeyer has some stunning pieces, as does Lazul, Maryan Mehlhorn and of course Gottex."

8) If you have a big bust... 

"The Maire Jo Jane strapless (or the same style in a basque) are very popular for B-D cups due to the beautiful lace detail and the matching bottoms (you can have a thing, a brief or a full brief).  For a fuller cup size, Empreinte’s Melody is a big hit. This season we’ve introduced a beautiful new Spanish bridal brand to our boutiques called Ivette which has been flying out – it really marries bridal catwalk trends with Mediterranean elegance and flair.  And we have an Andres Sarda vintage set arriving this month which we think will be very popular."

9) Still not sure what you need? Book a styling session

"It's worth your while booking in for a lingerie styling session as ultimately, all dresses and brides are different. We do a fun, pampering experience where we can host brides and her bridal parties in our VIP fitting rooms with a few glasses of bubbles."
