That time Lipsy partied with Kim Kardashian West

Mon 08 Sep 2014

So last week was probably one of the biggest in Lipsy’s party history! Only the hottest and most talked about star on the planet touched down in London to party with the Lipsy girls. If you haven’t heard about it already, it was Kim Kasdashian West!

The stunning style icon spent a jam packed 24 hours with Lipsy to celebrate the forthcoming launch of the fifth installment of the Kardashian Kollection at Lipsy.

Kim’s first stop was to some of the UKs most popular radio stations where she rocked up looking every inch the Hollywood It girl wearing the monochrome jumpsuit from her collection.

Kim dashed back to London’s famous Claridges hotel and made a quick change into the black spaghetti strap sheer and block panel dress for interviews with the fashion world’s elite. Due to popular demand Lipsy launched an exclusive pre-sale of this dress the next morning and it had sold out by lunchtime that very same day.

After the interviews had wrapped Kim didn’t disappoint her style fans, changing one last time into the black and white PU peplum top to party the night away with the London fash pack.

Shop all of Kim’s London looks when they officially launch online on October 29th.

Falling in love with Autumn

Thu 21 Aug 2014


It maybe the end of Summer nights, BBQ’s and Pimms O’clock but it also has to be one of the most exciting times of the year for fashion! Autumn brings the beginning of new boot shopping, coat investing and putting together our new season wish-lists. As soon as the September issue of Vogue landed on our desks we leaped to check out all of the glamorous new trends we would be sporting, and without fail, Lipsy have the catwalk looks covered.

The Lipsy colour palette for the new season incorporates rich darks of black, moody grey and ox blood red with complementary highlights of silver grey and blush pink. The introduction of inkwell tones, navy hues, layered with ultra marines was inspired by these being the strongest colours to come through the A/W 14 runway shows. These fresh hues have been included into dresses, jumpsuits and separates.

Tuxedo style dressing and sharp modern tailoring is a key catwalk look and can be seen in both tailored two piece suits as well as being integrated into dress and jumpsuit designs.

The key fabrications are a mixture of satin, chiffon, PU and luxe faux furs. Lace has to be the dominate fabric of the season and has been reworked and updated with lace on nude mesh styles to give the impression of lots of skin whilst still remaining ultra elegant.

The jacket and coat selection is better and bigger then ever with perfect work to weekend parkas and trenches. As well as new season shapes such as the long line biker and the texture mix wrap front coat. Finally, evening style faux furs in candy pop shades will bring instant film star charm to your party look.

The cold has never looked more stylish!

Sports day luxe at Lipsy

Fri 25 Jul 2014

This week we finally got to enjoy the sensational weather that we’re have having by escaping the office early and heading to the picturesque Regents Park in London’s West End.


It was a super fun and typically British sports day for the entire Lipsy crew. We were separated into colour coordinated teams, naturally the PR girls were pink, competing in races and games including the classic egg and spoon and coconut shy.

The PR girls were thankfully joined by a couple of male members of staff who literally threw us to victory, scoring the highest in the welly throwing competition.

To celebrate we headed over to the mouth watering picnic for a glass of strawberry cider, Carluccios pizza and a traditional pick and mix selection.

The calories we burnt were unfortunately soon gained back.

The ultimate swimwear essential.

This mesh cover up will be sure to give your swimsuit a whole new look.

3. The Monokini:

With this statement piece you can really make heads turn wherever you go. These come in so many shapes and patterns you’ll be spoilt for choice! Cover it up for Summer evenings by the pool with an embellished kaftan and if you’re going to add some accessories then you really need something simple yet effective like this Lipsy Snake Ring – you want the focus to be on your swimsuit after all! You just need to add some classic heels and voila! Go get ‘em girl!

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!

You can shop the Lipsy VIP collection here.

Lipsy loves The Brits...

Fri 24 Feb 2012

As London Fashion week drew to a close and the fashion pack moved onto Milan it was time for pop (and rock) royalty to descend on the capital for The Brit awards! Two of the Lipsy girls were very lucky enough to go along and even managed to join the celebs on record label Universal's after party boat - dressed in Lipsy of course! The girls opted for two very different but equally amazing dresses; the black classic texture bodycon and the Hedonia puff dress.


The ceremony itself was jam packed with performances from lots of British and international favourites. The highlights had to be Adele and Rihanna; both had the crowd on their feet including the Lipsy girls and Florence Welsh, who was spotted dancing (like crazy) with her friends close to the stage during Rihanna's AMAZING 'We Found Love' performance! There was definitely a friendly vibe in the air as Jessie J rushed to congratulate Ed Sheernan after he won Best Britisih Break Through Act despite Jessie J being nominated too!

When it came to the dresses, it was all about full length! With Kylie, Florence, Adele, Jessie J and Nicole Scherzinger all opting for this ultra glam style. Jade from Little Mix also looked cute wearing a Lipsy Spring must-have; the boucle suit.

Now to the ultimate fashion parade - The Oscars...

Get the look: X Factor finalists

X Factor girls in Lipsy

X Factor girls all in Lipsy!

By the time this post goes live, we'll have our new X-Factor champion, but whoever takes the title, this year has been an overall winner in the style stakes (we're choosing to overlook Wagner).

The two gorgeous girls in the final couldn't have more opposing styles - Rebecca is all about Sixties' chic and girly pieces and Cher bold outfits with an urban edge - but they each own their individual looks.

As the singers have both been spotted shopping at Lipsy - Rebecca even modelled for us in Liverpool back in 2008 - we've played stylist to pick out pieces we think could make it into their wardrobes.


Cher in Lipsy

Cher in Lipsy Diamante Skull Hoodie - Buy now!

Cher may have seemed fragile at points throughout this year's show, but she's sure got a strong voice and fierce sense of fashion. A hip hop and rap girl at heart, she loves Eighties-inspired street style - think baggy, bright and bold.

The Miss Sixty tiger print top ticks all these boxes and would make for great day wear, teamed with skinny jeans or leggings and slouch boots. And the edgy chain print cowl neck top and tattoo rose vest would also suit her urban leanings.

For the evening, the sequin-detail stripe cropped top and Killah star-detail one-shoulder dress scream stand-out attitude, just like Cher, and would look fab paired with a tough cropped biker jacket.

And of course Miss Lloyd is rarely seen without an oversized statement bag on her shoulder, so the pink velour Lipsy charm bag would make the perfect accessory.


Rebecca Ferguson in Lipsy

Rebecca's style is so classy that she seems to be from another era - Sixties' chic is the Liverpudlian lass all over.

Black and neutral shift dresses really suit her sleek look and our Pixie lace smock top, bow detail shift and pleated angle sleeve dress have that vintage vibe down to a tee.

When it comes to party-wear, Rebecca loves girly frills and cute bows, and the pretty pink studded bow detail dress and Ci Ci floral fringe dress would look stunning on her.

As retro-glamour leopard print is huge this season, no doubt we'll see Rebecca keeping warm in a must-have leopard print faux fur coat soon, and our leopard box clutch would help finish off the look in style.

Konnie loves Lipsy too!

Konnie Huq in Lipsy

Konnie Huq in Lipsy One-shoulder tulip skirt dress - Buy now!

Rebecca and Cher aren't the only X Factor stars to have shown a bit of love for Lipsy of late. The gorgeous Konnie Huq has been spotted in our one-shoulder tulip skirt dress and wore the to our embellished front strapless dress Pixie launch party back in September.

Mollie King wears Lipsy in LA

Mollie King wears Lipsy in LA

Mollie King was spotted wearing her favourite Lipsy pieces in LA as The Saturdays shot the video for their new single 'Higher' last month.

The girls enjoyed some fun in the sun before getting down to the hard work, indulging in some retail therapy, biking and blading at celeb hotspot Venice Beach, and eating out USA-style - pancakes and maple syrup for breakfast anyone?

Mollie King in Lipsy

Marvin, from JLS, flew out to join girlfriend Rochelle on the trip and will no doubt have been caught on camera by the ever-present film crew of The Saturdays' new ITV2 reality TV series 24/7. We must admit that we're totally addicted to this already - the girls have so much fun, and always do it in style!

Mollie King in Lipsy

In true sun-seeker fashion, Mollie wore our failsafe LWD - the ric rac bow dress - on the beach, and accessorised with her favourite straw hat and a skinny tan belt. Such a cute rollerblading outfit - and with the dress now in the sale for just £30, you can get her look at half the price!

The blonde singer even looked good at the airport, pairing a rock chic vest top with skinny jeans, heeled sandals and our waterfall zipped front jacket. Now that's what we call travelling in style.

Lipsy goes to the Duke of Essex Polo Trophy 2010

Lipsy at the polo

Last weekend the Lipsy girls donned their best Lipsy summer gowns and attended The Duke of Essex Polo Trophy for a great day of glamorous sport and lots of celebrity entertainment!

We caught up with celebrity guests including Lipsy pop favourites, Pixie Lott and Stacey Solomon, who both wore Lipsy pieces- Pixie wore Lipsy headband & cut glass ring and Stacey wore Strapless Beaded Pocket Dress, and chatted with stunning models Penny Lancaster and Sophie Anderton. The day included entertainment by Britain's Got Talent winners Diversity, and former Blue member Anthony Costa took to the stage in the evening to perform an intimate medley of our favourite 80's hits- what a day!

Take a look at some of the famous faces who graced the lawns of the Gaynes Park Estate, Essex and partied the night away with the Lipsy girls...

Esmee Denters talks to Lipsy

Esmee Denters in 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)!

Glastonbury - get the celeb look

Boho-style ruled supreme at Glastonbury again this year, with celebs championing denim hotpants, waistcoats and summer scarves as the festival staples to be seen in.

Trend alert

Hippy chic Sienna Miller stuck to her signature style, pairing denim cut-offs with a vest top, waistcoat and tough boots. And, on the arm of her model/rock star boyfriend George Craig, Emma Watson made her mark as a new Glasto darling in distressed pocket-detail denim shorts and a classic white sleeveless shirt.

Trend alert

There was also a whole lot of lace on show, proving that the trend is here to stay. Pixie Geldof rocked the edgy yet romantic look in a black lace blazer, worn over vest top and shorts.  Team our lace jacket with a body and hotpants for similar 80s-inspired festival style. Or take a leaf out of the gorgeous Jameela Jamil's style book with lace hot pants, a summer scarf and plenty of boho bangles.

While the on-stage Glasto costumes were as theatrical as ever - we're looking at you Florence, Paloma and Kylie - the celebs in the crowd kept it simple.

Choose from our range of denim hotpants and boho waistcoats, pack a few staple vest tops and boho accessories - we're a big fan of hippie hair accessories at the mo - and get set to celebrate like a celeb this festival season!

US superstar Kelly Rowland chats to Lipsy!

Kelly Rowlands in Lipsy

How would you describe your style?
I'd describe my style as varied. I tend dress for my mood and love to vary my style from classy to edgy. I like to mix designer with high street brands. I love the British high street and love Lipsy; everyone has such great style in the UK.

What's your most extravagant fashion purchase?
I recently purchased a pair of shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte which are amazing, however they were rather expensive!

How long does it take you to get ready for a night out?
I normally take around 2 hours to get ready for a night out.
Do you have any fashion tips for Lipsy girls?
Always be comfortable in what you are wearing otherwise it will show.

Do you have any beauty tips for Lipsy girls?
I love false eyelashes and can't leave the house without a pair these days! They've turned into my must-have essential.

Favourite hangout?
When I'm over in the UK I like to party at Movida or Chinawhites. 

What are you most looking forward to most this summer?
I'm really excited to travel this summer promoting my new single, 'Commander'.

What are your summer essentials?
I never travel without sunscreen or my bible.

If you weren't a famous singer, what would you be?
A teacher.

Do you have any tips for people you want to get into music?
My tip would be to just go for it, but be aware that the industry isn't as glamourous as it seems and there's a lot of hard work involved. If you want a career in music you have to really work for it and it will pay off in the end.

Do you have a message for the Lipsy girls?
My message for the Lipsy girls is to simply have fun! I don't over-think things in life and I always pray to keep my focus in life.

My night with Pixie and Lipsy

Pixie Lott and Lipsy Facebook competition winner

Yasmin King reports back from the Pixie loves Lipsy launch party:

Last week I was lucky enough to be Lipsy's competition winner and got to head down to London's exclusive Movida nightclub for the Lipsy/Pixie launch party!!

The club had been decorated floor-to-ceiling with huge Pixie posters, glittery Pixie/Lipsy love-hearts covered the walls and best of all, Pixie's new gorgeous party and festival line was displayed.

After taking in the buzzing atmosphere and meeting up with some of the Pixie crew for a few photos, we headed to the bar to take full advantage of the free fruity cocktails they had to offer, lush!!

A drink or two later we were informed that Pixie was due to perform any minute!! In an excited frenzy, we headed down to the stage to get the best views. Pixie sung two of her hit singles 'Cry Me Out' and 'Mama Do' as well as some wicked covers! She really is so talented and definitely knows how to get a party going!

Hours packed-full of fun went past too quickly! We danced all we could dance, and even managed to get to meet pixie and had a few pics :) With camera in hand, full of wicked memories, we decided to head off home.

The night was amazing, something I will remember forever! Thanks to all at Lipsy for a wicked night that will most definitely be hard to beat!

Sneak peeks at the Pixie Lott collection!

With just one week to go until the launch of Pixie Lott's exclusive Lipsy range, it seems that the fashion mags are just as excited as we are! Fashion editors have been piling praise on Pixie's design efforts, as well as getting under the style skin of Miss Lott herself.

Pixie Lott in Lipsy

Introducing the range in Look magazine, editor Ali Hall called Pixie's line "as catchy as her songs".

The high-street fashion bible went on to pick out Pixie's maxi dress, party range, denim shorts and a couple of cute sun dresses as its favourite pieces, writing: "The floral frocks and bleached denim are perfect for layering up and make a cute capsule camping wardrobe".

More!'s executive style director Sophie Stevens was also taken with the peacock-embellished denim pieces, saying that "the Festival collection has all the key looks".

Pixie Lott Lipsy collection

"It's the perfect boho and rock mix, which is Pixie all over," she said. "In contrast, her party collection is very girly glam with sexy animal prints - but it still has the signature rock edge Pixie's known for."

Pixie told the magazine that she took a hands-on role in the design process, even bringing in her mum's vintage white dress and copying it for one of the pieces. She also named Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung as her style icons, saying: "They always look really cool and I like their understated glamour."

Pixie will be making a personal appearance at our Bluewater store at 4pm on 28 April to unveil her Festival and Party collections - get their early as we're expecting a big crowd. And to celebrate the lead-up to the launch, we're giving away some amazing Pixie prizes on our Facebook page every day this week!

Mon 12 Apr 2010

Get the look: Leighton Meester

You just can't help but love Leighton Meester: she's fierce as quick-talking Gossip Girl Blair Waldorf, is one of the hottest New York scenesters around and - as if being an actress and model wasn't enough - is nurturing a blossoming singing career. Her club classic with Cobra Starship, 'Good Girls Go Bad', is one of our favourite party anthems, and in the video Leighton sums up her 'it' girl appeal with trademark cheeky smile, smokey eyes and messy curls - this is one fashionista who knows how to party!

Get the look: Leighton Meester

Showing off her fabulous figure, Miss Meester likes to keep it short and adds her own spin to on-trend outfits with a few carefully-chosen accessories. She rocks this graphic print mini with chunky ring and bracelet and goes for a graphic floral print dress that could work day or night, glamming up with a waist-defining belt and mix-and-match bangles. Get the look with our abstract design strapless sweetheart dress and the jersey-top printed skirt dress, and add your own unique edge with a handful of accessories.

Get the look: Leighton Meester

Leighton's love of accessories doesn't stop at evening attire: she makes the classic leggings, vest-top and blazer outfit her own with some playful feminine pieces. To emulate Leighton's casual chic, add one of our summer scarves and a cute bag such as the floral hobo or pink bow detail tote to your day-time staples.

Corrie stars join Lipsy for celeb retreat

Corrie stars join Lipsy for celeb retreat

Coronation Street stars were among those to be treated to a spot of Lipsy pampering at Manchester's Malmaison hotel last week. Kim Marsh, Carley Stenson and Michelle Keegan each took away a bag bursting with spring/summer Lipsy essentials to set them up for the coming season.

Lipsy Celebrity retreat

The three soap stars seemed glad to be enjoying some girly time away from the gruelling filming schedules the Street has set them of late, but their hard work seems to have paid off.

Lipsy Celebrity retreat

Michelle's role as Corrie's grieving Tina McIntyre has landed her a nomination for 'Best Actress' in May's British Soap Awards, and she's also in the running to hold onto her title as 'Sexiest Female'.

After all their northern graft, we think they deserved a treat.

Pixie Lott talks to Lipsy

Wed 31 Mar 2010

Pixie Lott talks to Lipsy

Pixie Lott Lipsy interview

Walking barefoot around Kensington Roof Gardens in a floaty white dress, it's obvious that Pixie Lott is ready for summer when we catch up with her, perhaps because she's just back from shooting her 'Pixie Loves Lipsy' collection in Spain's warmer climes.  "It was amazing to go to Marbella and be in the sunshine," Pixie enthuses. "I loved doing the festival stuff as the makeup was a bit crazy. I also love accessories, so we had fun with scarves and hats and I took a creative role in the way I looked."

Pixie talks style
Having started wearing Lipsy at a young age, Pixie knows that "when girls look for something to wear on a weekend, they go to Lipsy" and feels that her collection sums up her style perfectly.
"The collection is very me and that's why it was great to do the two looks - festival and party - as I love festivals and I love going out. It's good for people looking for something to wear over the summer and for the weekends."
Pixie describes her style as "vintage-inspired with a mix of contemporary fashion and designer", and the collection is just as eclectic, with her favourite pieces spanning current trends. "I really like this white pom-pom dress as it's vintage-looking, so I'll definitely be wearing it at the festivals this year. I also love the red and black lace bodice party dress which I'd wear out on a Friday or Saturday night. "Then there's the white lace backless dress - I love any kind of backless style and I think a lot of my friends will like that as well," she adds.

Pixie talks make-up
Sitting cross-legged, and happy to have pictures taken with fans within the Lipsy family, it's clear that Pixie is one laid-back pop star - so much so that she tells us it takes her just 30 minutes to get ready for a night out! "If I have half an hour, I can do that definitely - it just depends how much time I have. If it's two hours, it can take that long too. "However long you have, if you're doing smoky eyes you have to do that before you do your base and cheeks because it can get messy and you don't want to have to start over."

Pixie talks music
With two number-one singles under her belt, as well as a platinum-selling debut album, it's hard to believe that Pixie is still just 19. If she wasn't one of the country's favourite pop stars, she says would still be at Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts with her friends, singing, dancing, acting or "doing anything entertainment-focused". "You've got to be an opportunist in this game," she says. "If you want it you have to go for every audition, every opportunity. "I used to scour the internet and papers all the time. But I think if you have the right dedication and persistence you'll get there."

Pixie talks men
With a stunning look, amazing talent and fun-loving personality, it seems that Pixie could have any man she chose, so who would that be? "I don't have any unusual celebrity crushes," she smiles coyly. "It's just the usuals like Rob Pattinson and Ashton Kutcher, but I bet everyone says that!" And what would you do if you met them? "I don't know actually," she laughs. "Say 'hi'?" With this it becomes clear that even gorgeous pop stars can get a bit star-struck and giggly at times, and it's this down-to-earth attitude that makes Pixie one of our favourite celebs. We can't wait to get our hands on the pieces in her exclusive Lipsy collections!

The 'Pixie Loves Lipsy' festival and party ranges will be available in stores and online from late April.

90210's Jessica Lowndes parties in Lipsy

90210 Jessica Lowndes in Lipsy

Jessica Lowndes, who plays Adrianna Tate-Duncan in hit series 90210, popped into Lipsy HQ to stock up on some party essentials this weekend.

The gorgeous star made the most of her London trip by fitting in some serious shopping and socialising. Having partied at Movida on Friday, she hosted a night at Vendrome on Saturday and accessorised our origami bustier dress with a waist-defining belt, leather jacket and black clutch.

90210 Jessica Lowndes in Lipsy

Jessica is the latest in a growing number of US celebs to be spotted in Lipsy, with Paris Hilton, Demi Lovato, The Hills' Kristin Cavallari and Kimberly Wyatt from the Pussycat Dolls all taking Lipsy items stateside.

The American 'it' girls can't get enough of Lipsy party dresses and also seem to be big fans of our logo wear and lace items.

Get the look: Amber Le Bon

Get the look: Amber Le Bon

Daughter of supermodel Yasmin Le Bon and Duran Duran singer Simon Le Bon, Amber Le Bon has some seriously cool celeb heritage and is emerging as the one to watch on the London fashion scene right now. She's been snapped up by top agency Models 1 and has bagged some high-profile modelling gigs already this year, so expect to be seeing a lot more of this 'it' girl.

What we love most about our newest girl crush is her understated style: At just 20 she oozes class and sophistication, and we've completely fallen for her fresh, laid-back look.

Get the look: Amber Le Bon

She's recently pulled off the pretty prairie trend with a cute Broderie Anglaise dressbow detail belt and retro curls, and demonstrated her versatility by adding rock-chic edge to a LBD with a zip-detail biker jacket. Pair our wardrobe-staple rainbow Lurex dress with the gold stud leather jacket for a similar look.

But it's not all about the party dresses with Miss Le Bon: She looks tres-cool in a printed vest, harem trousers and a boho long pendent too, and we reckon she's going to emerge as a true style icon at this summer's festivals.

Pixie Lott shoots Lipsy collection

Pixie Lott shoots Lipsy collection

Pixie Lott shoots Lipsy collection

Not even grey skies could dampen Pixie Lott's enthusiasm for her new Lipsy collection as she worked the camera on last week's shoot. We thought Marbella would be a safe bet for a bit of sun but the fashion gods must have been out of earshot as Pixie modelled her trademark 'festival' and 'party' looks in the Spanish city.

With the collections launching in late April we don't want to spoil the surprise by letting you in on the Pixie pieces just yet, but these pics give you an idea as to the feel of the festival range. Pixie loves white sun dresses and Americana waistcoats!

She also fell for our stud-detail biker wellies - just how cool can you get? We're expecting these to be a big hit with the 'Brit' girls - paired with denim hotpants of course - during festival season so make sure you snap them up before the celebs do.

If you're gagging for more Pixie previews, stay tuned for our behind-the-scenes video from the shoot, coming soon!

Paris Hilton spotted in Lipsy tracksuit!

Paris Hilton spotted in Lipsy tracksuit

Paris Hilton in Lipsy

It's no secret that Paris Hilton is a fan of Lipsy - last year she was spotted wearing our dresses, sunglasses and accessories and we even customised a leather jacket for her - but it seems that she's taken a special shine to our logowear range!

Paris has been papped in our Lipsy logo tracksuits a number of times when enjoying some leisure time, and was recently seen out and about in our pink Lipsy crown hoodie set.

A big hit with celebs, the velour hoodies and longue pants, which come in a range of colours and designs, are uber-comfy and the perfect outfit in which to chill out, hit the gym or enjoy a spot of retail therapy. Just remember to team with oversized shades for that true celeb look!

London Fashion Week - top trends

Tue 23 Feb 2010

London Fashion Week - top trends

The spring/summer season isn't fully underway and already we're previewing autumn/winter looks at London Fashion Week. But worry not, this year trends have a long lifespan - it's more about investment pieces than fast-fashion - and the styles we're wearing now show no sign of going anywhere. So, what can we look forward to seeing a bit more of?

Sequins and gold - As an antidote to the recession blues, opulence dressing is here to stay. Clements Ribero added bling to footwear and boho dresses with sequin detailing, PPQ showcased some rather fabulous gold hot pants and Mulberry went for subtle studded embellishments.

Neutrals and pastels - Shades will continue to be subtle and soft with neutrals in cream, beige and browns, candy-coloured pastels and, if Mulberry's collection is anything to by, a whole lot of charcoal.

Period romance - Take a style cue from period dramas with full skirts, textured materials and romantic embellishments. Bringing it back to basics, the prairie look isn't going anywhere either.

Bows - Bows may be a central part of the 'Alice in Wonderland' micro-trend, but they're not just a flash in the fashion pan. Henry Holland's models strutted down the catwalk with bows in their hair and Orla Kiely prettied-up dresses with bow prints and detailing.

Shoes with socks - Perfect to wear with bare legs in spring or over tights in the colder months, pretty socks make up one of this year's cutest trends: The look works best with sandals, Mary Janes and wedges.

What the celebs wore

The Sugababes - The three girls pulled off very individual looks in the front row, each working one of this season's hottest trends. Amelle went for the underwear as outerwear look - try our zip-front corset with skinny jeans. Jade looked cute in an LWD - spot-on for the Little Miss Perfect trend encapsulated in our wrapover ric rac bow dress. And Heidi opted for sheer romantic ruffles in a top similar to our silk chiffon blouse.


Nicola Roberts - The Girls Aloud fashionista rocked an 80's inspired classic casual look in stone-wash skinnies, red Chanel jacket and cream quilted bag. Get the look in our faded skinny jeans, red silk chiffon blouse and stud quilted hobo bag.

Olivia Palermo - New York scenester Olivia Palermo got graphic at LFW, mixing and matching abstract prints for a truly on-trend look. Check out our asymmetric digital print dress in this season's bright neons.

Get the look: Kate Moss

Tue 23 Feb 2010

Get the look: Kate Moss

London Fashion Week is well underway and to celebrate we thought we'd look to Britain's face of fashion, Miss Moss herself, for some style inspiration. The queen of vintage, Kate mixes and matches items to create a look which is marries pretty and classic style with rock chic edge and is stamping her own unique mark all over the season's top trends: bold prints, leather and lace.

Get the look with these top style tips:

Toughen up summer dresses with leather: Kate rocks this season's digital print trend and hardens up the feminine style with a leather bustier. Match our bold asymmetric skirt shift dress with the biker gilet for a truly futuristic look.

Update your LBD with a cream blazer: Go for classic French chic by matching a simple and sophisticated lace LDB with this season's must-have jacket - the cream blazer. Fall in love with the gothic romance of the pleat sleeve lace shift or low back lace prom dress and make it monochrome with our soft crinkle waterfall leather jacket.

Make a statement with colour: Kate's wardrobe is full of low-key neutrals which she uses as style building blocks, and this season's soft grey shade makes for the perfect base. But never one to shy away from attention, she makes sure to make a statement with a bold splash of colour. Accessorise a low-key day-time outfit with a vibrant red tote for ultimate glamour.

Get the look: Kim Kardashian

Thu 18 Feb 2010

Get the look: Kim Kardashian

Model, reality star and socialite Kim Kardashian is curvy and proud and knows exactly how to flatter her figure. We've taken a guess at her style rules with some tips we could all do with taking on board.

Nip in at the waist - Accentuate that hour glass figure by nipping in outfits at the waist. Tuck a jersey top into a mini for figure-enhancing femininity. Try our jersey embellished pleat skirt dress or frill bodice dress.

Embrace your seductive powers - Dress like a sex kitten in sensual colours such as the rich red on our gorgeous silk rouge tea dress.

Get gorgeous in Grecian - Grecian styles were designed with voluptuous girls in mind, defining the waist and enhancing sexy curves. Look for ruched and drape details. Our halterneck beaded babydoll is perfect for s/s.

Know the trends - Make sure you don't get stuck in a style rut by keeping on top of the season's trends. The LWD (little white dress) is a s/s must-have, and a great tan enhancer! Our wrap-over ric rac bow dress is sure to be a best-seller so get it before it's gone!

Sarah Harding parties and holidays in Lipsy

Tue 16 Feb 2010

Sarah Harding parties and holidays in Lipsy

A long-time lover of all things Lipsy, Sarah Harding has been spotted partying and holidaying in two of our must-have pieces over recent weeks. Sarah partied at her London nightclub Kanaloa, with DJ boyfriend Tom Crane and Saturday's singer Una Healy, in our black lace panel jersey dress, which she paired with studded boots, a leather jacket and chain bag to create her signature rock-chic look.

Just hours after she left Mahiki's sister nightspot, Sarah jetted off to holiday in Barbados with Tom and a group of friends and it looks like she's been having a ball sipping champers and modelling a number of stunning bikinis, including our leopard print and pink-frill two-piece!

Look out for our new season Sun Shop - coming soon!

Demi Lovato shops at Lipsy

Mon 01 Feb 2010

Demi Lovato shops at Lipsy

Camp Rock star Demi Lovato popped into Lipsy HQ this week to pick up some must-have pieces for the upcoming season.
Channelling Nineties-style, the American singer/songwriter was wearing a red velvet blazer and black mini with big shades, layered chains and metallic-detail killer heels - this is one seriously stylish 17-year-old!

Snapping up some s/s wardrobe staples, Demi went for classic feminine pieces with our short flower dress and floral maxi (both coming soon) and the lace body and dropped lace dress. And she loved our rock-chic essential, the chainmail waistcoat, which is a bargain at just £25! We think it'd look great layered over the lace body with black skinnies and tough biker boots- it's all about mixing and matching materials and textures this season! Demi also picked up a Lipsy tracksuit - fast becoming a celebrity must-have - to chill out in when she gets some down-time.
We can't wait to see how she wears the pieces!

Introducing...our Wall of Fame winner

Introducing...our Lipsy.co.uk Wall of Fame Winner

We know Lipsy girls always look gorgeous in our party dresses, so each month we give you the chance to show what you've got alongside our celeb fans on the Facebook Wall of Fame.

All you have to do is upload and tag a photo of yourself wearing Lipsy. We then give winners the honour of representing their local Lipsy outlet or the online store and a £50 voucher to spend on their next party dress!

This month's Lipsy.co.uk winner is the gorgeous Miriam Evans from Wales, looking fab in a pink figure-hugging body-con dress, which she wore on a big night out in Cardiff - loving the matching lippy!

"I'm your typical nineteen year old girl from a small town in West Wales, craving fashion beyond what can be found in the small town shops," she says.

"This was my first purchase upon discovering Lipsy and I haven't looked back since! This dress made my night out in Cardiff special, and I now know where to look for upcoming special occasions.

"Lipsy never disappoints - it's the Cheryl Cole of the fashion industry!"

Lipsy's Big Review of the Year

Fri 01 Jan 2010

Lipsy's Big Review of the Year

Wow - what a year it's been. Not a day has passed without a juicy celeb story to get our teeth into, the fashion has been fierce; the music the best we can remember in a long while and it's been non-stop excitement at Lipsy HQ with fashion news and celeb spots nearly every week!

So, what will 2009 be remembered for? We've come up with our own list but let us know if you think we've missed anything! 

Katie and Peter - the fairy-tale ends
We all knew that they had a stormy relationship but we never thought they'd actually divorce! Many were in denial about the split and the words 'publicity stunt' sprung to mind on more than one occasion, but Pete stood his ground, Katie started seeing a cross-dresser, returned to the jungle, stopped seeing the cross-dresser...and we just couldn't get enough of the story!

Russell 4 Katy
We never thought we'd see the day - serial-womanizer Russell Brand falling in love and settling down! But Katy Perry has proved his perfect match and after a whirl-wind romance the quirky twosome are now reportedly engaged - good luck to our new favourite couple!

The new princesses of pop
My god, hasn't it just been the best year for music! Loved Cheryl's debut solo single, loved her performance on The X Factor, loved her dresses - so yeah, big celeb crush on Mrs Cole this year! But it hasn't all been about the Geordie lass - 2009 has seen some very strong competition for the crown of Queen of Pop. Our favourite new pint-sized pop princess - move over Kylie - Pixie Lott burst onto the scene with fab tunes and enviable style, Alexandra Burke proved that winning the X-Factor was just the beginning with the absolutely fierce 'Bad Boys', and you couldn't go anywhere without hearing one of Lady Gaga's electro hits or marvelling at photos of her out-there futuristic style! 

Twi-hard mania! 
Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, New Moon offered up even more brooding looks, sparkling eyes and hot bods than the first Twilight film - major swoon! Taylor Lautner gave R-Pattz a run for his money as crush of the year - although we have to admit that we're still Team Edward - and Kristen Stewart emerged as an unexpected style icon - mixing up grunge and classic feminine styles to create an original look with an uber-cool edge.

Lily Allen = the new face of Chanel
Following in the footsteps of Jerry Hall, Diane Kruger and Milla Jovovich, our very own Brit icon Lily Allen became the new face of Chanel handbags! Karl Lagerfeld described his new muse as '"fun" and, channelling Audrey Hepburn, she proved to be the perfect choice for the campaign. What a style overhaul - we remember the days of sun-dresses, chunky trainers and chav earrings. Good on ya Lil!

The top trends
Designers looked back to the eighties for style inspiration and statement shoulders, sequins, body-con dresses, trophy jackets and jumpsuits became the must-have pieces of the year. We got a glimpse of fashions to come, with a little help from Lady Gaga, and it seems that the future looks metallic, angular and geometric! And let's not forget the rock chic trend - stud and chain details, biker jackets and skinny jeans helped add an edge to girly glamour.


Website make-over: We pimped our website to make it better for you! You can now search by style, colour, trend and - coming soon - celebrity, drool over your new fashion crush with larger images and better zoom and pre-order to stay on top of the trends and catch those elusive best-sellers when they come back in stock!

International shopping costs slashed: It was good news for Lipsy girls in more far-flung locations as we slashed our overseas delivery costs with significant reductions for all you Irish Lipsy fans!

Shoes and lingerie launches: Expanding our fashion empire, we launched a fierce new range of killer heels, incorporating all the top trends - from shoe boots to gladiator sandals. We were also proud to present two new ranges of lingerie, designed for Lipsy by Soleil Sucre and Caprice, to help you look hot both in and out of your party dress!

New stores: We know that you love shopping online, but sometimes you need an emergency outfit for that special night out, so we decided to take our party dresses out to the nation by opening up Lipsy stores all around the country. You can now get your Lipsy fashion fix in...deep breath...Newcastle, Manchester Arndale Centre, Lakeside Essex, Liverpool, Dundrum, Cardiff, Nottingham, Braehead Glasgow, Bluewater, Brighton, Belfast and Sheffield.

Lipsy's got the X-Factor: The X-Factor finalists have always had a bit of a thing for Lipsy and this year proved no exception. Lucie Jones and Rachel Adedeji stunned audiences in Lipsy dresses during their live performances, and Lucie - who has joined Lily Cole, Agyness Deyn and Daisy Lowe on the books of Select model agency - has since popped into Lipsy HQ and the Brentcross store for some serious shopping. Everyone's favourite Essex girl, Stacey Solomon, was also spotted rehearsing and chilling out in Lipsy logo-wear during the series, as well as ramping up the glamour in our VIP feather dress for the wrap party! 

Celebs love Lipsy:  We don't like to name-drop - well, actually we do - but Lipsy has been a big hit with the stars this year. The likes of the Pussycat Dolls' Kimberly Wyatt, Beverly Knight and Amy Winehouse have all paid Lipsy HQ a visit. Alesha Dixon, The Saturdays and The Hills' Kristin Cavallari have been spotted rocking our party dresses and Lipsy outfits were all over the red carpet at the top soap star events of the year. Oh, and did we mention that our lace zip back top was featured in Vogue not once but twice?! A seal of approval of the highest order!


Introducing...By Caprice Lingerie

Tue 15 Dec 2009

Introducing...By Caprice lingerie
Combining glamour, femininity and sex appeal, we're very excited to be stocking Caprice's lingerie range! The 14 new styles will help create the perfect shape underneath that special dress and, of course, the pieces look pretty damn hot worn on their own!

Caprice's personal favourites are feminine and sexy Can CanFleur "the gel bra of gel bras" and padded plunge Hollywood Spot bra. We have to agree that these are the pieces to help enhance your assets to make you feel super sexy this party season.

Lipsy By Caprice Lingerie Primavera

"The Fleur is practical, so you can wear it every day, but it has that extra fashion twist so you look and feel fabulous," Caprice says. "And the Hollywood Spot gives you uber-lift and fantastic shape. I also love the brief shorts as I'm not really a thong kind of girl."

Lipsy By Caprice Lingerie Hollywood Spot

Caprice says that her inspiration comes from the customer:  "I listen and observe buying patterns - colours, shapes, styles and trends", and she's certainly got it spot on with timeless classic styles and vintage designs.  

"I hope you like the collection and can't wait to show you spring/summer range!" Caprice. xx

Sparkle like The Saturdays

Fri 11 Dec 2009

Sparkle like The Saturdays

The Saturdays have thrown themselves into the Christmas party spirit recently, championing the sequin trend at not one but three events! The girls went for block-colour sequin shifts at the Key103 Jingle Ball, sparkled in silver sequin mini-dresses at T4's Stars of 2009 and shone in a range of stunning styles at the Variety Club Showbiz Awards.

The Saturdays

Sequins are always a good bet at Christmas but this year the trend has really taken off, with bling becoming the look of the season! Choose the right style for you:

All-out sparkle
For true-attention grabbing style, go for bold colours with the pink bandeau sequin dress or sequin backless dress or work the metallic trend in our strapless reverse sequin dress or zebra sequin tunic.


The Saturdays love sequins

Subtle shine
If you're looking for something a little more subtle, choose a dress with sequin blocks or detailing such as the reverse sequin corset dress or bandeau beaded dress, which offers a similar style to Frankie's Variety Club cut-out number without you having to dare-to-bare. 


To get a true taste of what it's like to be a sparkling celeb, the dress had got to be exclusive. Splash out our stunning VIP all over sequin dress - the ultimate LBD!


Get the Look: Mel B

Wed 09 Dec 2009

With a body as toned as Mel B's, you'd want to show it off, and as you'd expect, the star looks amazing in the LBD of the season - our thigh-skimming hand-sewn VIP all-over sequin dress. Now that's a mouth-full! Team with a snake clutch, sky-high heels and simple accessories and you're ready to party!


Mel B

Yet despite spending most of her time state-side, it's not all Hollywood glitz and glam for Mel as she works the urban chic look with her day-time attire. She flatters her figure with subtle style - pairing knee-high boots with skinny stonewashed jeans and our cute animal print cardigan. And as the animal print trend is back on catwalks for S/S10, this makes the perfect investment piece!   

The Lipsy website makeover!

Mon 07 Dec 2009

You've heard of Pimp My Ride, well here at Lipsy we've pimped our website! Not only does the new site look fantastic, we've also made it much more user-friendly so you can lust over our party dresses and snap up your favourite styles with ease. So, what's changed?

It's good news for Lipsy girls in more far-flung locations as our overseas delivery costs have been slashed, with significant reductions for all you Irish Lipsy fans!

We know that missing your favourite items is one of your biggest bugbears, so you can now pre-order to stay on top of the trends and catch those elusive best-sellers when they come back in stock.

We've also tried to make it easier for you to find what you're looking for by enabling you to search by style, colour, trend and - coming soon - celebrity! And once you've found your new fashion crush you can drool over it with larger images and better zoom.

You can even e-mail a friend to drop Christmas pressie hints and with fewer steps to the checkout, your new style must-have will be on its way to you in no time. Soon you will even be able to choose the day and time-slot of your delivery!

Phew, Christmas has certainly come early this year!  

Get the look: Cheryl Cole

Wed 07 Oct 2009

Britain's golden girl can do no wrong in our eyes. We love everything she is associated with: Girls Aloud, The X Factor, her new solo single...but most of all we love her look! Cheryl truly is a style icon of our times and as well as becoming one of our favourite cover girls over the last few years, is now the new face (and hair) of L'Oreal's Elvive range. So, how does she manage to look so damn good all the time?

The key to Cheryl's look is statement pieces - bringing the basics (skinny jeans, leggings and vest tops) up-to-date with key items. Cheryl works the trophy jacket look with a Red Riding Hood-style duffle coat for the day and sequined blazer for the evening. Check out our red wool duffle coat and silver sequin jacket.

For more casual style she teams this season's trend top, a marble wash tunic, with bleached skinnies and for night-out sex-appeal brings the LBD up-to-date with a zip-front party dress and leather jacket. Try our eyelet marbled tunic and alligator futuristic dress.

We'll be watching every Saturday and Sunday night to see what Cheryl will wear next!

Stars shine in Lipsy at the Inside Soap Awards

Mon 05 Oct 2009

The soap stars glammed up last Monday night for this year's Inside Soap Awards, with many choosing to make an impression in Lipsy party dresses. It seems that the cast of Corrie have become regular visitors to our Manchester Lipsy store, which was opened by Michelle Keegan who plays Tina McIntyre in the soap. Michelle wore our stunning black, asymmetric glitter mini-dress (sold out!) to take the Sexiest Female award - a title well deserved we think!


And fellow cast-members Brooke Vincent (Sophie Webster) and Sacha Parkinson (best-friend Sian), who will become lesbian lovers in an upcoming storyline, dazzled in a VIP studded bodice feather dress and VIP bejewelled heart layer dress.

Hollyoaks' Dominique Jackson (Lauren Valentine) also swapped her on-screen emo attire for our floaty feminine pleated corset chiffon dress.

But it was the Eastenders' cast who really stole the show, sweeping the board with their awards. Lacey Turner (Stacey Slater) won Best Actress for the fourth year running, Kara Tointon (Dawn Swan) picked up the Best Dressed gong, Best Bitch and Best Bad Boy went to schemers Charlie Brooks (Janine Butcher) and Larry Lamb (Archie Mitchell) and John Partridge (Christian Clarke) was named Sexiest Male. 'Enders also won the coveted title of Best Soap.

Behind the scenes: Christmas photo shoot

Fri 02 Oct 2009

Last week we were mourning the loss of summer, but excitement about the upcoming festive party season has now well and truly jettisoned those thoughts from our heads.

The stills from the Lipsy Christmas photo shoot have just pinged into our inboxes and we're so excited about the new collection we thought we'd share a few style-shoot tips with you.

Location - We split our shoot between exclusive members bar Fifty Club in Mayfair, which has its own bar, club and casino, and celebrity haunt the Jewel Bar in heart of the West End. There was a great buzz at Jewel while we were there as they were prepping to host some top London Fashion Week parties. Only the best for our Lipsy Girls!

Style - A/W09 is all about drama and statement pieces and we have plenty of party dresses to help you steal the show this festive season. Think studs, jewels, sparkle, sequins, leather and animal print - forget less is more, this season more is more! And don't forget the A/W09 must-have piece - the trophy jacket.

Hair - The 'more is more' mantra also goes for hair and make-up this season. Our hair stylist went for the 'big is beautiful' approach, saying that volume is the key look for Christmas. He created dishevelled fallen-out waves with a bit of back combing to add a sexy edge to the style. Think rock chick morning- after hair.


 Make-up - For added drama, our make-up artists create sexy smoky eyes, adding false lashes for maximum effect. For extra Christmas party sparkle they applied gems around the eyes which complimented our embellished dresses perfectly.

The models loved...our new shoe collection and relaxing in Lipsy logowear at the end of the day. Oh, and the gorgeous male models of course!
