ABBEY ‘You Shouldn’t Lose Your Iden­tity Just Be­cause You’re Preg­nant’

We caught up with Abbey Clancy to get the low­down on her lat­est Mata­lan col­lec­tion, preg­nancy style and (tem­po­rar­ily) hang­ing up her killer heels…

Look (UK) - - ABBEY CLANCY -

We’ve al­ways thought that chat­ting to Abbey Clancy would be just like hav­ing a good old nat­ter with a mate, and the leggy Liver­pudlian model proved us to­tally right when we caught up with her as she took a train back to her home town for the birth of her brother’s baby. Break­ing off the phone call ev­ery cou­ple of min­utes to an­swer four-year-old daugh­ter Sophia’s ques­tions (too cute!), it’s clear Abbey is a hands-on mum who’s try­ing to make the whole work/life bal­ance thing, well, work.

Abbey’s come a long way since her early days of fame as a fi­nal­ist on Bri­tain’s Next Top Model in 2006. She mar­ried foot­baller Peter Crouch in 2011 and quickly be­came a fully fledged mem­ber of the fash­ion pack. She’s a reg­u­lar on the London Fash­ion Week FROW, has big-name de­sign­ers on speed dial (Giles Dea­con made her wedding dress) and is adored by world-renowned stylist Katie Grand. Then, of course, there was that Strictly win in 2013. But all that wasn’t enough for this worka­holic – in the same year, she added ‘de­signer’ to her al­ready im­pres­sive CV, team­ing up with purse-friendly high-street hotspot Mata­lan – now she’s about to launch her sixth col­lec­tion.

If you’re rais­ing your eye­brows at the 29-year-old’s jam-packed sched­ule, fear not – she’s more than will­ing to tell us how she keeps things to­gether…

Con­grats on your preg­nancy, Abbey. We’ve got to say, you look amaz­ing… Thanks! I’m on the home stretch, so I’m all about com­fort now, which means I can’t wear my heels any­more! Are you miss­ing them? Yeah, I am. The last thing I bought was some Su­perga pumps and I live in them now. The other thing I bought re­cently was a Burberry jacket… A treat for af­ter the baby ar­rives? Yeah! And there are some great things in Zara at the minute. They have gor­geous black flares and a lit­tle crop

The happy fam­ily is about to get a new mem­ber
