If there's one thing us Chelsea girls have in common, it's shopping, and if you live in the neighborhood, there's a chance we'll eventually have a run-in. So, I was happy, although I can't say entirely surprised, to share a smile over a lilac dress at Austique on the King's Road with Chelsy Davy. Wow does she have a killer body. Then, just a few blocks away at couture beach boutique Bondi, I bumped into Rosie Fortescue and Milly MacKintosh from Made in Chelsea.
They are both so sweet, and Rosie and I set up a coffee date where we talked about everything from the show and clothes to rose gold jewellery, beauty, her blog, and what the future has in store for this well-spoken, fashion-forward 21-year-old. She is currently an intern at Issa and is deciding between a career in fashion or jewellery. However, she's also working at a cupcake shop and seems to really enjoy that, too. I'll give you more insight into her beauty bag later, but for now, here's a bit on the fashion portion of our coffee talk.
FabSugar UK: What are your favourite places to shop in Chelsea?
Rosie Fortescue: I love Austique on the King's Road. My twin sister Lily actually works there, and I absolutely love the shop at Bluebird. I could spend all day in there.
Rosie is pictured here wearing a black leather Felder Felder frock from last night's National Reality TV Awards where she presented with co-star Spencer Matthews. To read the rest of the interview, just read more.
FSUK: Who are your fashion icons?
RF: There isn't really anyone that I aspire to dress like, but I suppose if I had to choose one person it might be Leighton Meester. I really like her tailored look. I just dress for my body and wear what fits me, whether it be designer or High Street. I've been wearing a lot of silk and leather right now.
FSUK: I can see from your blog that you wear a good amount of High Street brands. How do you think Mark-Francis feels about that?
RF: (She laughs). I wasn't actually in the scent at Raffles where he talks about his distaste for High Street, but he dresses really well.
FSUK: What are some of your favourite brands?
RF: Currently, the British designer I quite like is Christopher Kane, but I'm also very much into French tailoring. I especially love The Kooples, Sandro, and Maje.
