Our very own Mollie is the cover girl of the March edition of Cosmopolitan.
With London Fashion Week almost upon us who better to grace our March cover than bonafide style muse Mollie King. Signed to Next Models, a FROW regular, with a second drop of her Loved By Mollie collection on it’s way next month (get a sneak peak of it on the video here), Molls is definitely having her moment.
The Saturdays star tells Cosmo: “I studied fashion at A level and it’s something I love learning about. I’ve always had a strong opinion on clothes. I know straight away if I like something or not and how it could work… [Victoria Beckham is] an absolute legend. I saw her at a fashion event and I really wanted to ‘fangirl’ her and get a picture but I was too scared. If I’m on the front row of a show and someone like her walks in, I get so excited and can’t stop staring. I think, ‘Oh my god, I need to remember this feeling because I won’t be doing this forever.’ One day when I’m a granny, I want to remember how cool it is!”
In the full interview in our March issue Mollie talks about her hang-ups and dressing for her shape saying: “I don’t have a Kim Kardashian bum unfortunately, and I don’t have massive boobs either. You have to work with the bits you’re most proud of, so if I’m going out I always think, ‘Right, Molls, your legs are better than your cleavage, so go work those.’ I’m not that curvy, so I like to wear things that give me more shape than I’ve got. Everyone has their body hang-ups; I think, ‘Oh, I could tone that,’ or, ‘I wish I could change that.’ But as much as you can tone bits or add bits, you’re born with your body.”
Currently loved up with American record producer Jordan Omley, Mollie reflects on past relationships and even has it nailed when it comes to being friends with an ex like the model one David Gandy. “It’s really hard when it’s fresh; you can’t go from being in love to friends overnight. I’ve always had to take time apart after a break-up. When they’re with somebody new and you’re single that really hurts, but it’s easier when you move on. Recently there were some pictures of me and David sat next to one another at the same tennis match and the pictures could not have been more unfortunate. It looked like we hated each other, but we do actually get on.”
Now she’s totally loved-up and doing the long-distance thang with Jordan she’s happier than ever. “It sounds glamorous and showbiz, but it can be tough at times because you want to come home to one another and snuggle on the couch. He’s different from guys I’ve been out with before. I’m really happy; he’s definitely ticking all the boxes. He looks after me… I can be quite high-maintenance as a girlfriend. But I’ve learnt to be more laid-back in relationships.”
The Spring / Summer 14 Loved By Mollie edit will be available from March in selected Oasis stores and from www.oasis-stores.com The Saturdays new single Not Giving Up is out in March.
