Hey all, hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sun – if you lived in the south of England at least!
I would love to be posting a tour update, or a promo update, or even the Bigger premiere which didn’t happen last week, but alas this isn’t a Not Giving Up news post, it’s about Mollie’s aspirations to become a fashion designer.
Mollie King has fast become a front row regular and attendee at some of fashion’s hottest parties – she was even unveiled as the first ever ambassador for Oasis.
Better yet, the star landed herself a modelling contract where she joined a roster of talent including Alexa Chung, Rita Ora, Lana Del Rey and Suki Waterhouse.
The 26-year-old singer has clearly enjoyed her foray into the fashion world revealing that she has hopes of designing her own range one day.
Speaking to MailOnline, the Maybelline Better Skin foundation ambassador said: ‘I love doing the modelling I’m really enjoying it and learning lots from working with different photographers.
‘However my priorities for this year are with the band and with Oasis as I have another collection coming out with them in April.’
Mollie’s ‘Loved By Mollie’ AW13 collection for Oasis – a 45-piece capsule range handpicked by the well-dressed singer – went on to become one of their best-selling of all time – and fashion fans will be pleased to hear that The Saturday’s star is considering turning her hand to designing.
‘I would like to design, yes. Hopefully in the future.
‘I’ve learnt so much from doing the campaign it’s been a really nice introduction for me because you don’t realise how much there is to learn so I’m really pleased I’ve done it this way round first and then would like to do into designing at some point,’ she told us.
For now, however, Mollie is focusing on her duties as ambassador for Maybelline and, naturally, she’s a big fan of the brand.
‘Being part of a band I worry about foundation clogging my skin and I know with Better Skin that it’s good for the appearance of my skin day-by-day and is non-clogging whilst giving a dewy finish.’
Mollie maintains that her beauty regime is pretty minimal – she uses L’Oréal Paris Skin Perfection 15 Second Cleansing Oil twice a day and some Carita products on her skin.
Speaking about her closeness to her fellow Saturdays band members, Mollie said: ‘We love to have girly chats about make-up and hair and we love to do things like watch an award ceremony and then discuss people’s make-up and hair.’
Despite spending a lot of time stateside and holding up fort on the front row, Mollie hasn’t caught the juicing bug like her fellow celebrity friends.
‘I take daily multivitamins but that’s it really,’ she said of her health regime.
‘I’m not a big fan of juices and I’ve never done a juice diet because I really like munching on my food and so don’t really like the consistency of soups or smoothies. I would rather actually eat the fruit.’
