Some people may have been surprised when pop star Pixie Lott landed the starring role of Holly Golightly in the stage version of Breakfast At Tiffany’s, but the singer actually started her career in the theatre.Pixie, 25, joined stage school aged five and had appeared in a West End production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang by the time she was 16. And, she says, she always knew that she wanted to be a star.“There was never any other option in my head. As a kid I used to watch documentaries about Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera and I knew that was what I wanted. I’d work out all the steps it took to get them where they were.

“I was fascinated by them going to auditions, learning dance routines. Even when I was 10, I was thinking I needed to hurry up.

“My parents were thrown because I was this kid with a fixed idea. I never doubted I could do it.” Pixie’s Holly Golightly is based on the original Truman Capote novella and set in the 1940s rather than the 60s film version starring Audrey Hepburn. “I didn’t think about Audrey Hepburn,” says Pixie. “I didn’t watch the movie version. I didn’t want to intimidate myself.I just thought, ‘This is a dream role and I’m going to go for it and play Holly my way.’ “It was a bit like doing a cover version of a great song. You can’t replicate it; you have to just do it with self belief.” Pixie also has the support of model boyfriend Oliver Cheshire, who she met when she was just 19.“I know I was really young but I didn’t feel that young because I’d been working for so long and I just knew we were right for each other. I’ve got pretty good instincts. “People always ask me about getting married but we’re not at that point yet.
“We’re too young. We have crazy jobs, crazy schedules, and we don’t need to rush. “He is my family. He’s incredibly supportive of me. I’m aware of what that means and how lucky I am.We give each other freedom in what we do but we also like being together.” In between her busy music and acting career, Pixie has also found time to launch a collection of hair paints available at Superdrug, which are perfect for summer festivals and changing your look for parties.Here Pixie tells TV Life more about the new range and she reveals her top beauty and style secrets…
Tell me about your Pixie Lott Paints and how the collaboration with Superdrug came about?I am so excited to have my own hair dye range and it’s been great having products that my friends and I all love to use. I have a collection of wash in/wash out hair dyes, glitter sprays, hair chalks and pens – mostly in pastel colours.Why did you want to break into the beauty industry?From a young age I have always loved trying out different beauty products. I remember trying out my mum’s lipsticks when I was little, and then experimenting with different products on my naturally curly hair.

Music was and is my first love and number one passion, but extending my energies into beauty felt like a natural addition to that.

What is your favourite product in the collection and why?

My favourite one is the pink sorbet wash in hair dye – I just love the colour. I’m also a huge fan of the chalks and sprays as I can play around with them when I don’t have time to go for an all-over colour change.

Who do you see using the range and at what kind of occasion?I am really excited to see that people are using the range at festivals – it’s always fun to experiment more at festivals, and people take cool beauty and fashion risks.Who are your ultimate beauty icons and why?Edie Sedgwick and Brigitte Bardot – they are stunning and I love Brigitte’s smokey-eye look.

How do you stay in such good shape? Can you explain your typical weekly workout regime?

I don’t tend to work out or go to the gym but I always feel like I am racing around and on my feet.

When I did Strictly, it was such a great workout regime. I hope to get back into dancing when I have a little time off. I always make sure I drink enough water and generally eat healthily, however I don’t ever limit myself or cut out treats.

What kind of diet do you stick to?

I’ve never dieted, I just tend to eat healthily and enjoy everything in moderation. If you want a treat, you should treat yourself.

You’re currently starring in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. How do you feel about portraying one of fashion’s biggest icons?It’s such an honour to play Holly Golightly, and to take inspiration from Audrey Hepburn. Our play is based on Truman Capote’s book, not the film, so it’s set in the 1940s not the 60s.I love all the outfits I get to wear in the play and it’s been so incredible to take on the role of Holly.Do you identify with Audrey Hepburn and if so why?

She’s such an inspiration, always so elegant and beautiful. While the Holly I play is based on the book, it’s still such an honour to be mentioned in the same sentence as Audrey.

I really identify with the character of Holly Golightly, little things like we are both short-sighted, both live at Number 2 and have a brother we dote on. Has starring in Breakfast At Tiffany’s influenced your personal style? I’ve found myself becoming more and more influenced by 1940s fashion and beauty. It’s really opened up my eyes to that era.

What’s your favourite make-up look for daytime and evening?

My favourite daytime look is dewy skin with the help of a highlighter, a simple coat of mascara and a subtle lip gloss. For the evening I like to go for a smokey eye and a set of Eylure lashes.

Which one beauty product couldn’t you live without?

I couldn’t live without my Nubo Cell Dynamic Day SPF20 Moisturiser – I love this moisturiser, and it also helps to protect my skin in the sun.

What’s your best budget buy?

I love Max Factor’s mascara – it’s so good and last for hours. I would also recommend the Pixie Paint chalks – they’re a lot of fun.

What is your one favourite anti-ageing trick?

Drink lots of water – it’s the key to healthy, young-looking skin.

Pixie Lott: My Holly is different to Hepburn’s

How does it feel to be making your West End debut in Breakfast At Tiffany’s ?
Amazing, the tour was great fun but it is just great being in the West End. I can be at home and the theatre is beautiful, it feels really really special.

The tour has been epic, how are you feeling?
It’s definitely very full on, it made me appreciate how hard theatre actors really work, especially on a two show day. Holly Golightly is a character that goes through so much so it does take a lot out of you. But I am really enjoying it.

Had you always wanted to be an actress?
Yeah, it’s always something that I’ve enjoyed and wanted to get into. Singing and music is my number one and my ultimate passion but I love acting and I love dance. I did it at school and I’ve always wanted to do a play and really learn about it. I’d like to do more.

I just had to learn the words really, it is such a wordy piece. I have loads of lines, so I had to properly get them into my head.

Were you a fan of the original book?
I didn’t know about the book before I knew about the role. I only knew of the movie, and I knew the play was based on the book not the film so I had to read it. The book is darker and edgier. I think it’s great that we’re staying true to how Truman Capote originally wrote it. When they made the movie they made it more commercialised, made it more of a romantic comedy, whereas it’s not actually written like that.

Was Audrey Hepburn a big influence?
I love Audrey Hepburn and that iconic picture of her. But I didn’t want to watch the film version again and copy anything Audrey had done because then I would just be a not-as-good version of her. I just read the book and have done my own version. Our Hollys are completely different, apparently.

How would you describe your Holly?
She has very different sides to her. I just try to bring as much of my personality to her as possible so it feels as real as possible. She’s fun to play because she’s a party girl and she also has some more vulnerable and intimate moments.

What has it been like working with Nikolai Foster as your first director?
I think I’ve been really lucky because he is incredible at what he does. He gets the best out of everyone and he’s also taught me loads and is really inspiring to work with. It’s such a mammoth role to take on and it is nerve wracking, so he really made me feel comfortable. He gives everything to his work and I really respect him.

Is it right that you’re producing an album at the same time?
Yes, I did loads of writing last year and I took six weeks off the tour to do some more music. The album will be out next year. I have some fun online music stuff that I’m going to put out for the summer.

Was it hard to switch between the music studio and the stage?
Not really, the music stuff I’ve done behind the scenes since I was 12 and when my single came out it was seven years ago so I’ve been doing it non stop since then. So it just feels normal. It was more of a shift getting into the world of the play.

Are you having to have very early nights and use honey and lemon?
Yes, definitely trying to but it’s hard in London because there’s so much going on. The play takes so much out of you, you just have to say no to things. You only get Sundays off and that’s when you need to recuperate, but there tends to be something going on on a Sunday at the moment so I’m hoping this Sunday I can chill.

So you didn’t make a sneaky trip to Latitude last weekend?
No! I didn’t.

You’re working with a real life cat – how has that been?
Bob is amazing, he’s so placid, most of the time he sits there and chills and the audience are like – Oh my god is that actually a real cat? But there have been some shows, especially early on, where he goes crazy and goes into the audience and causes mischief, but when we’ve been in town he’s been really good.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is in previews at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, opening on 28 July and runs until 17 September.

Why Britney Spears (& Everyone Else) Is Crushing on Pixie Lott
Posted by Eliza           on Jul 21           tags: Articles, Interviews

pixelottusbanner

Pixie Lott first made waves back in 2009, when she released a series of hit singles that took Britain by storm, like “Mama Do (Uh oh uh oh).”

These days, she’s taking a break from the pop star thing, and keeping it very classy with a gig as Holly Golightly in the stage adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffany’s in the UK. Lucky for us, however, the actress-singer-songwriter took a break from her day job to answer some questions about dating when you’re famous, guilty pleasure songs, and that one time Britney Spears shouted Pixie out for #WCW.

Is your real name Pixie Lott?

My real name is Victoria Louise Lott, but my parents called me Pixie from when I was a baby as I was so small. It’s stuck and now all my family and friends call me Pixie, I am hardly ever called Victoria.

When did you dye your hair blonde?

I’m blonde naturally, but a little darker than I am right now. I started dying it when I was a teenager and have kept it since then. I’ve been enjoying experimenting with my PAINT range too — the sorbet shade was one of my favorites. While I am doing Breakfast At Tiffany’s I have to keep it blonde though.

Who is your favorite designer?

That’s a tough one… it’s so hard to choose! I love Dolce and Gabbana, since all of their dresses seem to be a perfect fit for me. I also love Fendi and Dior.

What’s a song people are surprised you like?

A random guilty pleasure that I know all the words to is Puddle Of Mud’s “She Hates Me.”

How do you feel about Instagram?

I love Instagram and it’s one of my favorite social media platforms. What I like about Instagram is that you can still keep up an air of mystery, it doesn’t need to be me sharing everything about my life. Oh! And Britney Spears picked me as her #WCW one week and I was blown away and so not expecting it. I haven’t met her yet, but she’s one of my favorite performers.

Who’s your favorite British band of all time?

The Beatles. They’ve written some of the best pop songs of all time. I just love listening to them and always feel inspired afterwards.

What’s the most important life lesson you’ve learned in the past year?

To never stop working hard, take risks and challenge yourself. This year I stepped fully out of my comfort zone and it was really daunting playing Holly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. I had to take dialect lessons to perfect her accent, learn a huge script, learn how to play guitar – it was certainly nerve-wracking, but I am loving every moment now.

What’s your favorite flower?

At the moment, I love sunflowers. You can’t go wrong with roses and lilies though, they’re an all time fav.

What’s dating like when you’re famous?

There’s not much difference dating when you’re famous versus when you’re not. There are more pictures taken when you’re scooting about on adventures though.
