On March 2, Ariana Grande’s Lipsy London collection was finally released, and there are tons of outfits and jewellery that you could choose from. She also talked to press about the collection along with general things, below which is an interview with MailOnline. Check it all out below!
She’s already a pop sensation and beauty guru and now Ariana Grande has proved there’s no end to her talents after turning her hand to fashion design. The pint-sized pop princess has joined forces with British high-street retailer Lipsy to launch a 20-piece fashion range.
Speaking to MailOnline, the 22 year-old actress-turned-singer says the collection is ‘fun, feminine and totally affordable’ and says she feels ‘so lucky’ that she’s had the opportunity to create the range for her fans.
Ariana, who joins Michelle Keegan at the label, says the range offers a new ‘dynamic and directional route of strong fashion silhouettes, on-trend must-haves and wardrobe staples for those who want to make a real fashion statement.’
‘It is full of super cute dresses as well as more edgy separates and wardrobe must-haves. I really hope my fans will love it,’ said the star, who has a staggering 61.4m followers on Instagram. Ariana, who has made the Sixties look her signature, cites ‘eternal and timeless’ Audrey Hepburn as her style icon, as well as her friends and grandmother, who she affectionately calls ‘nonna’.
There’s a ‘Riviera chic’ daywear collection of chic midi skirts and blouses, an array of prom dresses and party wear in Ariana’s signature ‘fit and flare’ shape style. The colour palette is predominantly monochrome with silver and pale nudes and fabrics are thick structured satins, lace, and embroidered organza.
‘I will be so honoured when I see anyone wearing the collection, I can’t even think about anything else,’ she said. Hoping to keep things purse-friendly for her fans, prices start from £35 for dresses and skirts and £32 for tops. The creative star has also added a 30-piece jewellery range with her trademark cat ears and ear cuffs.
Of course, Ariana models the entire range herself and displays her trim figure in the campaign shots. So what’s the secret behind her slim physique? ‘I have been a vegan for the last few years and it has been a great experience for me,’ she revealed.
‘I try and live a healthy lifestyle; eating right, exercise and sleep are all so important. ‘I try and stay really active all the time. I like to hike when I can and being on stage is a great workout.’ Whilst she says her schedule can be tiring, she ‘absolutely loves’ what she does and feels really blessed so just tries to live in the moment.
‘I have a great team around me to help me and surrounding myself with family and friends really helps too,’ she added. Ariana has had a stellar career to date after shooting to fame in 2013 and becoming one of the most famous females in pop.
The former Disney star has a combined social media reach across her official accounts of over 115 million fans, as well as being one of the top 10 most followed Instagram users in the world. But the pop princess isn’t resting on her laurels. ‘There is so much left to do!’, she said. ‘I love making music and I can’t wait for my fans to hear my new album.’
