Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

Be­yond-im­mac­u­late man­ners, the most en­vi­able hair ever – Mol­lie King is pretty damn cool IRL. For­merly a fifth of girl group The Satur­days (they went on hia­tus in 2015), Mol­lie’s fi­nally spear­head­ing a solo mu­sic ca­reer, mod­el­ling un­der top agency Next and es­tab­lish­ing her­self as a host on Ra­dio 1. And now she’s mod­el­ling Lit­tle­woods’ col­lec­tions, which is no sur­prise – every time Mol­lie wears some­thing it’s a sell­out. Hav­ing just cel­e­brated her 30th birth­day on 4 June, we find out Mol­lie’s sum­mer style essentials and, of course, when that sin­gle’s com­ing out…

Hi Mol­lie! What are your hol­i­day plans this year? Noth­ing at the mo­ment be­cause I’m cur­rently record­ing. My sin­gle will be out to­wards the end of sum­mer, so I haven’t been able to take any hol­i­days un­til I know the ex­act re­lease date. Ex­cit­ing! What can we ex­pect from it? It’s an up­beat one – a girly an­them that you can blast out of your car or dance to on a night out. You’re tak­ing the solo leap like Harry Styles and Liam Payne. What do you think of their sin­gles? Harry’s new sin­gle is un­ex­pected and I think it was a re­ally brave route to go down. I know his album is out now and I’m look­ing for­ward to hear­ing it. He’s such a star and he’s so lovely – I hope he does re­ally well with it. There’s been a lot of talk of com­pe­ti­tion be­tween them. Is it like that with your band­mates? Oh God no, not at all! We’re all so sup­port­ive of each other. We’ve been through so much with one an­other. Me and the girls are still very much a band, so we haven’t split up or any­thing. It’s just about sup­port­ing each other on our dif­fer­ent jour­neys, and it’s so nice to be so close to them. Your band­mate Vanessa White re­cently said it wouldn’t ever hap­pen, but would you re­unite with­out one mem­ber? No, I don’t think so. It would need to be all five of us. You never know what’s go­ing to hap­pen, so watch this space. It would be fun to do in a cou­ple of years’ time. You seem so con­fi­dent. Any tips? Ev­ery­one has inse­cu­ri­ties. I’m most con­fi­dent when I’m around my clos­est friends and fam­ily. We can all just com­pletely take the mickey out of each other and just be our­selves. Who do you call if you need a boost? Prob­a­bly my mum. She’s my best friend and she’s very hon­est with me as well, so I know that if I were to ask: ‘Does this dress look bad?’ she’d tell me if it did. I do re­ally trust her opin­ion. She’s al­ways the per­son who’ll pick me up if I’m feel­ing down or any­thing like that. You look great. How do you keep fit? Be­cause I’ve been in the stu­dio so much re­cently, I haven’t re­ally been able to go to the gym so I don’t feel very fit at the mo­ment. I nor­mally try to go to the gym about three times a week, and I also like to do some box­ing as well, if I can fit it in. I’m quite com­pet­i­tive so I just love to play any kind of sport – even when I’m on hol­i­day. When you do get to go on hol­i­day, what’s al­ways on your pack­ing list? I’m that per­son who has their sum­mer hat on at the air­port! I al­ways take things that I haven’t worn in years and I think I’m go­ing to have an oc­ca­sion to wear them on hol­i­day. What wardrobe item couldn’t you live with­out? At the mo­ment, my Fendi sun­glasses; I wear them all the time. I also love shirts. I have loads in my wardrobe and most of my tops are shirts. You can wear them as an over­sized boyfriend look with skinny jeans, or you can make it look more for­mal and wear it with a skirt for a preppy vibe. I also love the Vila dress from Lit­tle­woods – the yel­low colour and flo­ral print make it per­fect for sum­mer days. I’ll prob­a­bly wear it with nude san­dals. There’s a denim jump­suit from Lost Ink which is re­ally cool, too. It’s a good length and that can be dressed up for an even­ing. I love red and denim, so I’d dress it up with a red lip and a nice pair of stilet­tos – you’ll look and feel fab­u­lous! What do you want to buy next? I’m lov­ing flares at the mo­ment. I wore a pair of pur­ple denim flares the other day for a launch and I just loved them. I also want to buy some new white leather Su­per­gas – they go with ev­ery­thing. Whose style is in­spir­ing you this year? Gigi Ha­did al­ways looks amaz­ing. She looked great at the Met Gala and I love how she can do re­ally sexy in a floor­sweeper one minute, then laid-back tomboy with a pair of leather trousers and train­ers the next. She nails it every time.
