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.comThe Saturdays new single Not Giving Up is out in March.
The March 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan is on sale 30th January.
Happy New Year TeamSats! It’s now 2014, and well it’s pretty much the same as 2013 so far?
I’m sure many of you have set resolutions, about eating less, or getting healthy, or a combination of them both. Or it might be something a lot less serious and fun! Either way I hope you’ve not broken it already, it’s only day 6 after all!
I know the big talking points right now are about the hints from the mailer, which state both ‘new single’ and ‘2014 tour’ – which is a lot to take in.
Obviously ‘Not Giving Up’ has been ‘album only’ on iTunes for a while now, which to a lot of people is just screaming out – next single – and as I touched on my previous post the song is appearing on advance single release dates, set for Early March right now. So we will wait and see.
The next debate is obviously about any tour. In the greatest respect to our favourite group, they aren’t going to pull a Beyoncé and announce a tour, and then go on tour 3 months later. Today new 2014 tours have been announced, and they are for dates in October. I’ve been saying a while I foresee an Arena Tour for the girls, but not until Autumn/Winter 2014. I’ll be glad to be proven wrong, but it’s looking increasingly more likely this will be the case.
Quick roundup of the New Year’s news. Mollie has been sunning herself in LA, cooking on the BBQ in a bikini and generally making us feel very unfit. Rochelle and family have been enjoying a lovely exotics holiday. Una has spent time in Ireland as we await her appearance on ITV’s Splash! Vanessa and Gary have been spending time in Paris and Frankie, well she’s got a new born to be looking after!
I promise stuff will be happening soon, just anyone who was expecting instant gratification from the rumoured tour dates and single news might be feeling a tad disappointed, just remember good things come to those who wait! Just ask Mollie and her BBQ!

This Morning the girls appeared on … This Morning .. they had a chat (video coming soon) and performed the new single Disco Love, which you can view below:
Update: Sorry something went a little wrong, this is what happens when you leave technology to get on alone, it should now be working …
I do have the Interview, but it will take me time to get it off my TiVo, I also need to do 3-4 hours worth of revision this evening, as my exam is this Friday, so as you can appreciate that is my primary concern right now, but for now enjoy the performance (sorry for the breakup at the start!)
Disco Love – the new single – is OUT NOW! Click the links below to buy!!
It’s amazing isn’t it? The UK finally has summer-type weather and our girls made the most of it yesterday as they performed (in what must have been swealting) temperatures at London’s Hyde Park as part of the Summer Music Festival that is taking place there over the next week or so.
I’ve added a few pictures of our girls looking hot (literally!) below, hopefully more will appear and I shall add them to our gallery.
As you have read Gentleman did chart at number 14 yesterday, I know there is a level of dispointment from everyone involved, but it has given the girls their 14th Top 20 single, they’ve also confirmed that another single is due out before the album, which if that includes 30 Days, will mean 4 singles before the album (Just hope the album has more than 12 songs!), we can all point the finger to where it we thought it went ‘wrong’ but we need to remain positive and look at the future, first up the girls have a couple of headlining concerts next month in Kent and North Yorkshire, so make sure you grab your tickets!! Plus they are obviously on the main stage at the V-Festival inbetween those shows too!
Firstly the important news, Gentleman has been revealed in the midweek chart update from Radio 1 to be at number 8. We have another Top 10 single on our hands, and is roughly where I personally thought it would chart. The concern is that we are slipping on iTunes, so we need to get the sales up. I’m sure you have bought the EP from iTunes so please go and pick up a couple of remixes, or the remix EP and help the girls maintain their Top 10! We don’t need the follow up to a number one single not reaching the Top 10 now do we?
Also today Mollie and Vanessa appeared on the ITV1 show ‘Lets Do Lunch’ you can catch the video below:
