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’s Uxbridge shop raises thousands for charity

A shop full of a pop-singer’s clothes, which showed up in Uxbridge for just one week, has raised thousands for a young person’s charity.

Singer Pixie Lott donated clothes and accessories from her tour for a pop-up shop at intu Uxbridge from Monday 15 – Sunday 21 February.

£2,500 was raised for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), a charity which has been working to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death since 1995.

Dr Steven Cox, CRY Chief Executive, said: “What a great week at intu Uxbridge!

“We are so grateful to the intu team who allowed us to ‘set up shop’ over the half term – and timing couldn’t have been better, leading up to a high profile BBC TV Lifeline Appeal, fronted by Pixie, that was broadcast last Sunday.

“Many of the visitors we met wanted to learn more about CRY’s work and Pixie’s involvement with the charity and it was a real pleasure for our staff and volunteers to chat to shoppers of all ages who showed so much interest in our ongoing mission to prevent young sudden cardiac death.

CRY supports young people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers bereavement support to families affected, as well as funding heart screening programmes and medical research

Mr Cox added: “Overall we raised the fantastic sum of around £2,500 – not to mention the value of raising awareness in such a busy and vibrant shopping mall.

“As one of intu Uxbridge’s nominated charities of the year, we look forward to working with the team again during 2016!”

The All About Tonight singer is a a patron of CRY and uses the role to help spread the word about the charity’s vital work.

Natasha House, Marketing Manager at intu Uxbridge, said: “It was fantastic that CRY were able to open a pop-up charity shop here at intu Uxbridge, with thanks to their patron Pixie Lott.

“The store was hugely popular with our shoppers, and spread awareness for the charity and their fantastic work.”

At least 12 young, apparently fit and healthy people (aged 35 and under) in the UK losing their lives due to undiagnosed heart conditions every week.

As well as working with Cardiac Risk in the Young, intu Uxbridge will be supporting Rainbow Trust and Hillingdon Carers to raise awareness and funds for the causes. For more information on charity partnerships at intu Uxbridge, check out their website .

‘When I stop enjoying it, I’ll pack it in’ – Pixie Lott graces our Style Issue

PIXIE Lott isn’t nothing if not an all-rounder. Pop princess, style icon, Strictly star and now – her latest incarnation – West End leading lady.

Just like the character Audrey Hepburn made famous, Pixie rarely puts a fashion foot wrong, which is why we couldn’t think of a better cover star for our Style Issue.

Plus, meet the woman who makes clothes out of road kill and sells them for thousands, and the disabled models who are smashing fashion’s final frontier on the catwalk.

Fans can buy Pixie Lott’s clothes at intu Uxbridge
Posted by Eliza           on Feb 17           tags: Articles, Updates

Pixie Lott will bring a touch of showbiz to Uxbridge , by giving fans and fashionistas a chance to bag her clothes.

The pop singer has donated a huge amount of clothes, including tour outfits, dresses from performances and leisure wear, to help raise funds for charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).

The celebrity sale comes after intu Uxbridge’s announcement of their 2016 charity partners, choosing to raise funds for CRY, Rainbow Trust and local charity Hillingdon Carers.

The All About Tonight singer said: “I became a patron of CRY as it affects so many young people and it’s crazy that a seemingly fit and young person can just drop down dead.

“I feel it’s so important to raise awareness and will continue to use my role as Patron to help ‘spread the word’ about the charity’s vital work.”

With items ranging from £5 to £50, the shop will be staffed by the CRY team from Monday 15 to Sunday 21 February, who will also be handing out information about the charity and the work it does to prevent young sudden cardiac death.

Every week, at least 12 young (35 and under) apparently fit and healthy people die from a previously undiagnosed heart condition.

Many, but not all, of these young people will have been involved in sport at the time of their death. Sport and physical activity does not cause these undetected problems – but it can significantly exacerbate an existing, undiagnosed condition.

As well as being an inspiring ambassador for young people, Pixie also has a personal connection to the charity and the issue of young sudden cardiac death.

In 2012, dancer Matt Beadle, who taught her at the Italia Conti School, died suddenly from a previously undiagnosed heart condition, aged just 32.

In 2004, Adam Donnelly, who was a friend of Pixie’s older sister, Charlie, tragically died from a condition known as Brugada syndrome, aged just 17.

Alison Cox MBE, Founder of CRY, said: “Pixie already does so much for us, such as this hugely generous donation of so many beautiful clothes and accessories to be sold in aid of CRY.

“I’m sure that during half term lots of girls will be heading down for some “retail therapy” at intu Uxbridge – which has also just adopted us as their charity of the year – so please do pop in and see us and have a browse through a selection of fantastic clothes, with some added star quality!”

Natasha House, Marketing Manager at intu Uxbridge, says the shopping centre is “honoured” to be working with the fantastic charities throughout 2016 and hopes to raise their profile in the local area.

She said: “Rainbow Trust, CRY and Hillingdon Carers all undertake amazing work in the community, and we are thrilled to be helping them further.”

NOTION: Did you and Oliver have a great Christmas and New Year?

PIXIE: I had a great Christmas and New Year with my family and Oliver in Verbier, Switzerland. Oliver arrived on Boxing Day and we skied most days ❄🎿

NOTION: 25 is a big year. What are you most excited about this year?

PIXIE: I feel like it’s a bit of a turning point – new year, turning 25, new music, first lead acting role – so much to look forward to in 2016. I am especially excited for everyone to hear my new music. Music is my passion but I’m also excited to play Holly Golighty in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. It’s such an iconic role and a dream role for me – she’s amazing! I have not performed on a West End stage since I was 12 and performed in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang while studying at Italia Conti. It’s going to be nerve wracking but I can’t wait.

NOTION: Birthdays are also a time of reflection of past years. What has been the most important lesson you have learned so far?

PIXIE: I love celebrating my birthday big with family and friends.  I think I have learnt to take everything with a pinch of salt and do what makes you happy!

NOTION: Let’s talk about your new track with Akelle! It’s a fantastic track and your voices complement each other perfectly. Did you enjoy working with him?

PIXIE: Yes, he is so talented and easy to work with! I can’t wait to do more.  I’m so excited for everyone to hear what we did. I wanted to premiere it on my birthday to give my fans a little treat from me – I hope they like it as much as I do!

NOTION: How did you come to work together?

PIXIE: It was great writing and being in the studio with him, and the producer PRGRSHN.  We just went into the studio for literally a couple of hours and sang lyrics and melodies and it just came out so easy! They’re such talented people and lovely to be around. I love WSTRN’s music – ‘In2’ is such a great track and was one of my favourite tunes of last year.

NOTION: Your fans will be dying to know what other new music you have lined up. Can you reveal anything?

PIXIE: I’m so excited for my fans to hear what I have been working on in LA! I spent lots of time there last year and have written tons of new tracks.

NOTION: Lastly, how will you be celebrating today?

PIXIE: I have been celebrating with my friends over the weekend in Verbier and I fly back at lunchtime today! I’m having a cartoon character themed party in London – you have to go for it when it’s your birthday.. I love celebrating woo!!

What Now – Pixie Lott ft. Akelle Charles

UPDATE: Film of Pixie Lott made by Newcastle company shown in Hard Rock Café branches around the world
Posted by Eliza           on Dec 22           tags: Updates

One of the North East’s newest digital film companies has teamed up with the Hard Rock Café for the second time in a matter of weeks.

In the latest of a string of national wins, Roundhouse Pictures, a division of Newcastle-based design agency The Roundhouse, has created a series of films starring singer Pixie Lott.

The company, based at Fenham Hall Studios in Fenham, Newcastle, first worked with the famous restaurant chain in October when it was asked to create a short film of its Manchester branch’s 15th anniversary celebration, to be shown across Hard Rock Café’s social media channels.

Just over a month later, its head of film, James Craggs, was invited to the chain’s original, flagship restaurant, at London’s Old Park Lane, to film an intimate Pixie Lott concert.

His interview with the chart topper, along with a two minute film of the event will be shown on Hard Rock Café’s digital and social media sites, while a film of one of the singer’s songs, captured on four cameras, will be screened in Hard Rock Café branches across the world.

“It was an amazing experience, but not without logistical problems as Pixie was performing to about 200 guests in a fairly confined space,” Mr Craggs said.

“However, we are delighted with the resulting films and to have been given the chance to once again work with the Hard Rock Café; an internationally recognised and highly respected brand.”

The win comes on top of a successful 12 months for Roundhouse Pictures, which, earlier this year, was chosen to create a film shown at the star-studded re-launch of Britain’s first ever cinema.

The Regent Street Cinema, at the heart of London’s West End, made history when it screened the Lumière Brothers’ Cinématographe to a paying audience in 1896.

Operating as a cinema for decades before being turned into a student lecture hall in 1980, the venue re-opened in July after a three year refurbishment.

Other Roundhouse clients include intu Metrocentre, Foundation of Light, Spotlight Reporting, Heriot-Watt University, Newcastle United Foundation, North, NE1, BKW Instruments, and University of Liverpool.

UPDATE: Pixie Lott: Imperfections are what make you unique
Posted by Eliza           on Dec 19           tags: Interviews, Updates


pixelottusbanner

Which beauty products do you swear by?

A good moisturiser is an essential. I moisturise morning and evening and I love La Roche-Posay and Vichy.

What are your essential cosmetics?   

It’s important to have a good mascara – a favourite is Max Factor Masterpiece. I use Benefit Watt’s Up face highlighter for a dewy glow.

If people get cosmetic surgery and it helps boost their confidence, I don’t see any problem with that

What are your Christmas party make-up essentials? Smoky eyes are fun for a Christmas party and you can glam it up with lipstick.Do you have any top beauty tips? Use a cleanser and moisturiser that suit your skin type and invest in a foundation that’s the perfect colour, even if you have to mix two or three together.

Tell us about your new haircare range…I’m so excited to have my own hair products. I have loved trying them out. The range is called Paint by Pixie Lott and includes hair dyes, chalks, sprays and pens in some of my favourite colours.What has been your favourite hair look?I dyed my hair for the launch of the range – it was sorbet pink – and I loved it.

Do you diet? 

No, I love food too much to diet. I think everything in moderation, and you have to treat yourself sometimes.

What part of your body would you change?

I always think it’s good to feel comfortable with who you are. Imperfections are what make you unique.

Would you ever consider cosmetic surgery? 

At the moment I don’t think I would, but never say never. If people get cosmetic surgery and it helps boost their confidence, I don’t see any problem with that.

Which other women do you think are beautiful? Brigitte Bardot and Edie Sedgwick. Jennifer Lawrence is beautiful, and seems like she’d be lovely, too.What is your signature fragrance? Chanel No 5. It’s a classic.

How do you pamper yourself? 

I treat myself to a manicure and pedicure with my friends.

Describe your style… 

Sometimes classic, sometimes quirky and fun.

Do you have a favourite shop or designer? 

Dolce & Gabbana, Moschino, and Chanel. My favourite high street stores are Topshop and American Apparel.

Have you suffered any fashion disasters? 

I’ve had lots of malfunctions. My dress unzipped during Leeds Festival and the show had to go on. Also, camera flashes make things see through and you don’t realise until it’s too late…

What will you be wearing on Christmas Day? 

I love a good set of pyjamas, and will probably spend most of the day in those. I love being cosy at Christmas.

Paint by Pixie Lott is available exclusively from Superdrug stores and superdrug.com. The range starts from £2.99 for a highlighting pen.
