Sophie Anderton’s Summer Frills

Former Gossard poster girl Sophie Anderton has swapped her city centre flat in Chelsea for a house in Surrey and the move out of the capital has done her the world of good.

The model has had a turbulent year with public battles with drugs and ex-boyfriends, but when we caught up with her at the launch of a new Jeans for Genes campaign, she told us she was happier than ever.

As she sipped a Diet Coke (with extra ice) on the roof terrace of London’s exclusive Sanctum Hotel, she revealed she hadn’t touched a drop of alcohol for four months.

The former party girl said she gets her kicks from jogging these days, telling us that she ran 10 miles around her rented Surrey house three times a week.

And things look like they can only get better for Sophie now she’s swapped her high heels for comfy trainers as she added: “I love Surrey so much that I am buying my own house there in September and putting down roots outside London.

“It’s time to escape all the bad influences and start again.”

See how happy she looks after making those changes in our video below:


Sophie’s feeling light and carefree and showing that with her outfit, which has some ultra fashionable fringe detail.

Go for a similar look with a Rare one shoulder frill dress

Or try a Love Label pleat frill dress, for something a bit less bright but still equally feminine and summery.

Very has a great range of summer tops too, such as this Love Label lace frill top, now in the sale from £29 down to £13!

Or a plain Love Label frill top, which is also a bargain at £15

Sophie’s trimmed off her hard edges and replaced them with soft frills and it totally suits her. Be inspired by her this summer!
