Esmee Denters talks to Lipsy
Hi Esmee, lovely to meet you and congratulations on your new single 'Love Dealer' with Justin Timberlake, it's a great summer song, we love it at Lipsy. So what was it like to be discovered by Justin Timberlake, how did it come about?
It was great! I love to play the piano and cover my favourite songs, I'd upload the covers on to Youtube and that's how Justin discovered me. He invited me to one of his concerts and that was when I first met him. It was very exciting!
What's Justin like in person?
Justin is a real humble guy, he's very down-to-earth and a brilliant artist.
You've also worked with Chipmonk, we love Chip Diddy Chip! How was that?
(Laughs) Chipmonk is cool! I found Chipmonk on Youtube and loved his music. I tweeted about him saying how I loved his music and he tweeted back saying that he liked my music, that's how the collaboration came about. It was the perfect collaboration!
Who do you admire in the music industry?
I look up to strong female artists such as Alicia Keys, Beyonce and Madonna; they have definitely influenced me in my career.
Do you have any celebrity crushes?
(Laughs) Hmm, I'd have to say Lenny Kravitz, he's sooo hot...and (laughing) probably the only man who can pull off wearing leather trousers!!
Do you have any fashion tips for Lipsy fans?
I'd say get creative and don't be afraid! I love to wear cute dresses like this Lipsy dress and my killer Gucci heels to add my own flavour. Always do your own thing and have fun with fashion.
What is it that you love about Lipsy?
I love Lipsy, the clothes are so feminine yet funky! The dresses are very beautiful, they fit great and look amazing on. I'm a girl with curves and Lipsy dresses accentuate my best bits!
How would you describe your style?
My style is fun & sassy. I like to mix casual pieces with real funky accessories, I love accessories!
Do you have any tips/advice for Lipsy fans?
Be yourself- don't be afraid to just do it and grab the opportunity. People will always hate, but my advice is to rise above it, focus on being positive, and do what you want to do!
Do you have any plans for the summer?
I'm planning to spend the summer writing new material and focusing on what to do next. I'll also be watching the World Cup final, I'm from the Netherlands who are in the final, and hopefully I'll be celebrating when they win (laughs)!
