One of the coolest girls I met at The V Festival was Pixie Lott. At the age of 22 she’s released two albums and had three number one solo singles, which is a massive achievement, but she was happy to hang out with me, sit back and have a good old chat about my favourite subjects –fashion and make-up. She’s also totally gorgeous – this is me with her below.
I briefly mentioned I’d met her when I did in my round-up of the V festival action while I was on site in the Very backstage area in the Louder Lounge VIP area, but she has so much expert advice about fashion it merits it’s own blog post. If you like Pixie’s style (and she does have a signature style of shorts with cute tops) then this is what you need to know:
Q: You’ve played a lot of festivals. Are you an expert at your festival wardrobe now?
PIXIE: “Yes, I love festivals. It feels like you go away on a mini holiday; At festivals you can literally wear whatever you want and nobody cares – if you want to paint on your face, shove a flower in your hair or wear mad sunglasses, nobody looks twice! I always have to have a pair of wellies though.”
Q: You often have to go from work to celebrity parties, so do you have any tips about going from day to night?
PIXIE: ‘That’s easy – bring a pair of heels along! I always carry them in my bag and they come off as soon as they hurt. I also like a statement piece of jewellery.’
Q: What are the little things you do with your makeup to make you feel great?
PIXIE: Usually I don’t go for statement lips, because when I’m singing the microphone smudges lipstick all round my face! Before a show though I always have big lashes and smokey shadow that’s brought out to the side to make it more feline.’
Q: Tell us all when we can expect new things from you?
PIXIE: ‘I’ve just finished my third album actually, that’s why I’m celebrating a bit this weekend. We’re just working out what tracks will go on it – I’ve done so many! I think it will be out at Christmas time or in January so there will be a lot of touring for me in 2014. I can’t wait!’
I can’t wait either, Pixie. Her 2010 Crazy Cats tour was a sell-out and three years down the line her original fans may have grown up but she still has the catchy tunes to capture the attention of younger ones. All About Tonight reaches fans of all ages. Bring on 2014!
