New from New Look in collaboration with Kelly Brook is a lingerie range just out for Valentine's Day. On the heels of her last Christmas collection that sold so well, Kelly decided to think outside the box and bring us darker hues this year such as navy, plum and deeper reds. This feminine line draws on a 1950s inspiration with high-waisted knickers, fitted shapes and sexy little sets at affordable prices starting at £5.99. Kelly’s personal favourites include the lace edged satin bra and briefs in navy and cream, and the red satin lace body piece which offers both support and comfort. The range is available now online at New Look. Will you be shopping Kelly's collection for Valentine's Day?
This week in London, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley launched her first ever lingerie line, Rosie for Autograph. French lace and Swiss-designed couture embroidery give the collection a luxurious feel, and the rose prints and muted tones draw on the Deco period. Rosie said:
"To find inspiration for the collection, I trawled my favourite vintage shops and flea markets in London, LA and Paris where I found a treasure trove of gorgeous clothes and ornate pieces of jewellery, as well as pictures and patterns found in old design books and fashion magazines.
I was particularly drawn to the opulent elegance of the 20s era which really shows in my designs from the sumptuous silks I chose to the intricate deco inspired embroidery detailing on the garments.
The palette was not only inspired by my favourite 20s pieces, but also it was largely influenced by the rich colours of different types of roses. From the muted tones of dusky pink and green through to dramatic scarlet blooms, I wanted the palette to evoke the beauty of a gorgeous British garden in Summer."
Prices ranges from £12.50 to £65 and cater for knicker sizes 8-20 and bra sizes 30-40 A-E (selected styles upto G). I've picked my favourites from the 33 pieces, which include a teddy, kimono style robe, silk lingerie sets, cami and French knickers plus bras and knickers in various shapes for different figures. Take a look here and tell me which piece is most fab!
Lookbook pictures from Kelly Brook's latest lingerie line have dropped ahead of the release at the end of this month. The British model, who also has a swimwear and clothing collection with the high street brand, said: "I am so excited about my second lingerie collection – it’s gorgeous and feminine with a few sexy pieces thrown into the mix. I hope everyone loves it as much as I do!" Lace ups and pleated satin feature in the vintage-inspired line, with high waisted briefs giving a nod to that 1950s silhouette that suits Kelly's figure so well. Styles include baroque rose print, polka dots, leopard print and cored eyelash lace with bows and rose gold branding galore. Take a look through a sneak peek at the collection, which comes sizes 34B to 36F and starts at £5.99, and tell me if any of the pieces will make it into your lingerie drawer!
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's lingerie collection for Marks and Spencer is available on August 30, and to help with the wait the high street giant has released a video introducing Rosie for Autograph. This is Rosie's first time designing and the British model has created a vintage-inspired collection of 33 pieces in silks and lace. In the video she says:
"I love everything about lingerie. I’ve always had a thing for it, it’s completely feminine and something for women, it’s ours and it’s this little secret. I think we’ve struck a really great balance between it being young and modern while still being classic and sexy and feminine and I hope people will enjoy wearing it."
Watch the video above and tell me if you're excited for the launch!
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is taking her relationship with Marks and Spencer one step further by collaborating with the high street brand on a new range of lingerie. The British model, who is currently the face of Autograph, announced this week she is turning her hand to design, with Rosie for Autograph launching online and in selected stores in September. Rosie said:
“M&S is an iconic British brand, adored by many, so I’m very excited to be launching my debut lingerie line with them. I thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with the design team to create my dream collection, and I’m looking forward to a fun and creative time ahead.”
So what can we expect from the range? There'll be silk lingerie, cami and French knicker sets, a kimono style robe and a teddy amongst the 33 pieces, which will (appropriately) include rose prints. Taking inspiration from the 1920s, the collection will have deco-inspired detailing. It sounds beautiful. Are you excited for Rosie's first foray into fashion design?
Model turned actress Kelly Brook has decided to join forces once again with High Street brand New Look for the launch of her second collection. This time, instead of swimwear, (a genre she has worked on for the last 5 years), she is creating a line of flattering feminine intimates with a heir of sophistication. Kelly said,
"I feel so excited to have been able to work on such an exciting project with New Look. I’m delighted with how the collection has turned out, it’s glamorous, sexy, girly and feels great – everything I look for in my lingerie!"
The items will go on sale this Valentines Day starting at £5.99 and you can shop for them in New Look stores or online here. Are you interested in seeing what Kelly's lingerie has to offer?

Marks and Spencer stopped Oxford Street shoppers in their tracks yesterday as they launched the Nearly Naked lingerie line with some, well, nearly naked models! The collection is a range of underwear which is suited to your skin tone, with four different options. The store scanned the skin colour of over 1,000 customers, before deciding on the final range. The bras will be available in sizes 32A to 40D (£18) with matching briefs (£8). It's a great idea and I'm sure will appeal to plenty of women who are sick of their bras being visible through t-shirts and blouses. Paschal Little, head of lingerie technology explained, "By using revolutionary new techniques we have been able to produce a wonderful product which is not only a great fitting lingerie range but also one which will suit every woman in the nation." Are you impressed by this underwear collection?
