Introducing Millie Mackintosh for Lipsy VIP
Tue 27 Mar 2012
Lipsy are proud to present Millie Mackintosh for Lipsy VIP! Lipsy VIP is a collection of limited edition dresses that are that extra bit special and perfect for occasions (or red carpets). The collection features stunning thigh-splitting gowns and strapless princess style party dresses in hot pinks and subtle champagne hues.
Millie looks gorgeous modelling the collection - it's difficult to pick a favourite! Take a look at some of the dresses below and make sure you check out the behind the scenes photos and watch the video to see the gorgeous dresses and Millie in more detail.
Mid shoot we spoke to Millie to find out her take on this season's fashion, getting ready for a night out and to find out the goss with her and celebrity beau Professor Green...
If you had to pick one favourite dress from the VIP collection which would it be?
I love the ruffle front pink/nude dress with embellishment at the waist. As soon as I put it on it hugged my body in all the right places, it's exactly the type of colour that I usually go for and I instantly felt sexy and glam in it.
Are you more of a high street or designer girl?
I normally team my designer accessories, like shoes and handbags with high street clothing. I always get complemented on my Lipsy knitwear.
How many Lipsy dresses do you own?
Too many to fit in my wardrobe!
How long does it take you to get ready for a night out?
Usually an hour and a half. An hour to do my hair and then half an hour to do my make up. I'm quite organised, so I usually know before hand what I'm going to wear.
Does your boyfriend (Professor Green) prefer you dressed up or down?
If we're at home together he likes to see me casual with no make up. I'm usually in soft jeggings and a sexy loose knit. But if were going on a night out he likes to know that I've made the effort to look glam just for him.
Do you ever swap clothes with best friend Caggie Dunlop?
Yes, but I never get them back when she borrows them.
Does she have anything in her wardrobe you secretly covet?
Yes! All my clothes back. She also owns a pair of gorgeous neon heels that I would love to wear but she is a different size to me.
What's your favourite trend for S/S 12 and why?
70's bohemia, it's an effortless summer look that never goes out of style.
You're interning at a fashion magazine at the moment, is this a career path you'd like to continue on?
I'm enjoying it at the minute because I'm learning something new all the time. Whilst I'm learning I'm happy. But I'm not to sure what the future has instore at the moment.
Finally, why do you love Lipsy?
The brand always makes such great eveningwear and I love the exclusivity of the VIP collection - all of the dresses would be perfect for any red carpet event!
