Five Minutes Of Fashion With Kelly Brook

The single life suits Kelly Brook as we haven’t seen her looking anything less than fabulous recently.

And that is no mean feat as Kelly has been out a lot. In the past fortnight she’s attended the Cosmopolitan Woman of The Year Awards, the launch of the new LG Optimus One phone, The Pride Of Britain Awards, The Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of The Year Awards and a Clic Seargant Charity Ball.

She also attended the Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi, where she posted on Twitter: “our villa has more butlers than bathrooms”. JEALOUS!

The 30-year-old model turned TV presenter, who recently posed for Playboy, knows what clothes suit her. She normally dresses to accentuate her top half – if you’ve got it then flaunt it! And clever Kelly always sticks to the golden rule of wearing longer skirts if you’re going to wear anything revealing up top. It’s maxi dresses and knee length pencil skirts all the way for Ms Brook.

We caught up with her for an exclusive chat about fashion at the LG Optimus One party.

QS: Where do you normally shop?

KELLY: “My favourite department store in London is Harvey Nichols. I don’t get much time to shop so I like department stores where you can just run in and pick something up.”

QS: Do you get a lot of free clothes?

KELLY: “I am very lucky as I get lots of stuff sent to me. But I find it hard to get clothes to fit me properly so I end up buying a lot of stuff myself. At least I know it fits and I get to keep it. I spend lots of money on dresses, I won’t tell you how much but it is a lot.”

QS: Do you always wear designer clothes?

KELLY: “No! I spend a lot of time in LA and it is more casual out there with jeans and boots

QS: What’s your best piece of advice when it comes to dressing up for an important occasion?

KELLY: “Always get a second opinion. Before I leave the house, I ask my friend or my date if I look ok and tell them to be honest.”

QS: Tell us one fact about you that we might not already know.

KELLY: “I like gardening. I plant my own bulbs and pick fruit.”
