Exclusive Fashion Tips From Amy Childs and Lauren Pope

The Only Way Is Essex stars have a unique fashion sense in the terms they are always ready to party. So when young Harry Derbridge threw a party at the Jewel bar in London’s West End, his cousin Amy Childs and former castmate Lauren Pope really went to an effort with their outfits. Very exclusively chatted to the female reality TV characters to ask them to sum up their Essex style. First up was Amy Childs, who left Essex in Season 2 to do Celebrity Big Brother. However, she still lives in the county and progressed to another reality TV show of her own, All About Amy, which is due to be re-commissioned by Channel 5.

What’s Amy’s secret? She exclusively told us: “I’m a very girly girl. I’ll always choose dresses over trousers. I think Cheryl Cole is a style icon. When she was on X Factor, I always wanted to wear the dresses she was wearing.” At Harry’s party, Amy went for a lace dress, which looked feminine and also classier than some of the bright dresses she’s worn in the past. If you like lace too, then check out the elegant but glamorous Drama Queen lace bodycon dress at Very.

Very also chatted to Lauren Pope. The model and DJ, whose ex boyfriend Kirk Norcross is currently in the Celebrity Big Brother house, revealed: “Because I’m a little bit older than the rest of the girls in the show, I am more demure – or I like to think I am. I wear dresses but I’ll make it different with some biker boots, a black jacket or a chunky belt. I like t-shirts and jeans with heels for night. A little bit London, mixed with Essex.” She pulled it off at the party with a heart t-shirt and skinny jeans.

For a similar look, you could try an oversize heart t-shirt at Very. The So Fabulous Heart Tee starts at size 14, but you can customize it to suit your shape whatever size you are. If you’re looking for some skinny jeans then the South Molly skinny jeans are perfect.

ITV2 producers are currently compiling a new bunch of stars for TOWIE season 4. Will they be able to keep up the style standards set by Lauren and Amy?
