|Pixie Lott interview with What’s On|
|Posted by Eliza on Mar 23 tags: Articles, Interviews|
The singer/songwriter and actress, currently playing Holly Golightly in the new UK touring production of play Breakfast at Tiffany’s, talks diamonds, hot showers and high heels.
Tell us about the new stage version of Breakfast at Tiffany’s…
How does it feel to be playing such an iconic character as Holly Golightly?
Do you feel the pressure is on because Holly is such a well-loved character?
Some might say this is quite a departure for you as you are best known for your music…
Was there a tough audition process?
Did you have the classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s Audrey poster when you were growing up?
Did you know that Truman Capote originally wanted Marilyn Monroe for the role, but her agent advised her against playing ‘a lady of the evening’?
Are you like Holly in any way?
Does it concern you that audiences will be making comparisons with Audrey, as that is the Holly they know best?
The song Moon River is obviously hugely associated with the story – how does it feel to be performing such a classic song?
You learned to play guitar especially for the role – what was that like?
There is music from the era and original music by Grand Olding – so do other songs feature in the play?
This is your first major stage role since you were a child/teenager – why did you leave theatre for so long?
The chemistry between ‘Fred’ and Holly is intrinsic to the story – how do you get on with your co-star Matt Barber?
At its heart, this is a love story, focusing on Holly’s self-discovery – would you agree?
Does your Holly have a cat?
Can you remember the first time you became aware of Breakfast at Tiffany’s (the novel or the film)?
Let’s talk about costumes as Holly’s look is so iconic – will you be wearing Givenchy like Audrey?
Have you ever done the whole having a coffee and Danish pastry outside Tiffany’s thing?
The play is touring before it moves to the West End – you must have packing for the road down to perfection?
What can we expect to find in your dressing room – will it be as chaotic as Holly’s apartment?
Has your boyfriend Oliver [Cheshire] been helping you with your lines?
What will surprise audiences most about the play?
How would you sum the play up in a few words?
Danish pastries or croissants?
Diamonds or Pearls?
Night in or Night out?
Couture or High street?
Acting or Singing?
Cats or Dogs?
Baths or showers?
Champagne or Whisky?
Heels or flats?

|Pixie Lott’s Uxbridge shop raises thousands for charity|
|Posted by Eliza on Mar 2 tags: Articles, Updates|
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.
£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 .

|Pixie Lott interview with Fabulous Magazine|
|Posted by Eliza on Feb 21 tags: Articles, Interviews|
THERE aren’t many people who do Positive Mental Attitude better than Pixie Lott. She’s so relentlessly cheerful, so permanently bushy-tailed, that it’s difficult to imagine anything getting her down.
Take the disappointment of her eponymous third album – released in the summer of 2014 – failing to break into the Top 10, and the last couple of singles not faring particularly well either.
Bromley-born Pixie, 25, simply shrugs her shoulders. “I just keep on going,” she says on coping when music she’s poured her heart and soul into doesn’t, for whatever reason, quite cut the mustard in terms of chart performance.
“I do stuff that I believe in myself. You can’t keep everybody happy all the time, so you need to keep doing what you enjoy and do what you think is right.
“When I stop enjoying myself, I’ll just pack it in! But I don’t think that’ll ever happen, because I have the bug to just keep going. I’ve been doing this for ages and the buzz is still the same as it was from the start.”
Nevertheless, she acknowledges that it’s important to diversify, which is why she’s put music on the back-burner in order to concentrate on adding strings to her bow – hence her upcoming lead role in a new stage version of Breakfast At Tiffany’s. She’s constantly writing new material, but admits it’s unlikely anything will be released until next year.
“Music has been and still is my number one, but there are other areas I want to focus on,” she says. “Doing Strictly [in 2014] was definitely branching out of my comfort zone, and I learned so much from that, and that’s what I’m hoping for from Breakfast At Tiffany’s.
“I remember going to see Chicago on Broadway when I was about 15 and Usher was performing as Billy Flynn, and I knew then not to be afraid to go into other areas and to be as rounded a performer as you can be.”
Every time we’ve shot and interviewed Pixie for the cover of Fabulous, she’s been nothing less than completely charming. She’s unassuming, unstarry and undemanding, and so laid-back there can’t be much in life that ruffles her feathers.
Since she arrived on the music scene back in 2009 with the No.1 debut single Mama Do, Pixie – who was born Victoria but was given the nickname as a baby – has gone on to establish herself as one of the country’s most stylish celebs.
She rarely puts a fashion foot wrong and designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, who have become good friends, queue up to dress her. She’s never afraid to experiment, doesn’t ever take herself too seriously and switches easily between grunge, glam, classic cuts and more offbeat styles.
She makes flat shoes look sexy every time – nobody does a brogue quite like Pixie. And it all makes her the perfect choice to be our Style Issue cover star.
“I do love fashion,” she says. “I think my favourite era will always be the 1960s. It can be quirky, fun and sexy, but also classic and beautiful. I love Brigitte Bardot, Edie Sedgwick, Marilyn Monroe…I love Audrey Hepburn as well. So I like to keep it contemporary but inspired by different eras.”
The spare room of her east London flat sounds like a fashionista’s heaven. She describes vast piles of designer clothes, vintage handbags and “millions and millions” of shoes, which means her second bedroom is not fit for purpose and bursting at the seams.
“No, just chaos,” she says, holding her hands up. “Total chaos, like, everywhere. It’s so bad and I need to organise it because it’s crazy to live in. I’ve got too much stuff and I never put anything away.
“I’ve tried to do clear-outs, but there’s just so much of it, I wouldn’t know where to start. I get attached to things. I’m like: ‘Ooh, this could come in handy if I ever have to dress up as a policeman…’ Basically, I need a bigger place with more space.”
Which is why she’s spending more time on Rightmove than Net-A-Porter these days – not that there’s much space in the schedule for house-hunting, either. Pixie is in the middle of rehearsing six days a week for the iconic role of Holly Golightly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s, which will tour the country between March and June before landing in London’s West End for a three-month run at Theatre Royal Haymarket.
She’s currently based in Leicester, where the cast are rehearsing for five weeks until the tour kicks off there. We meet at a cocktail bar in the East Midlands city, and Pixie – in typically upbeat spirits despite having just finished a full-on 10-hour rehearsal – arrives with her guitar slung on her back and orders a cup of tea.
She’s dressed down in a pair of J Brand skinnies, a Bella Freud jumper and the cutest pair of Minna Parikka bunny “sneaks” (complete with rabbit ears and fluffy tail), and is wrapped up against the February chill in a toasty parka by Ruby Sky London.
Pixie is in the enviable position of often being handed expensive freebies, which no doubt add to the disarray in that out-of-control spare bedroom.
“I know I’m lucky, whether things are gifted or even if I just borrow them for an event and then send them back. I still get excited. Dolce & Gabbana sent me and Oliver a Valentine’s his ‘n’ hers box. There was this amazing dress, purse and phone case, and I was all: ‘Oh my god.’”
Oliver is Oliver Cheshire, 27, Pixie’s live-in boyfriend and a male model with campaigns for the likes of D&G and Calvin Klein under his belt – and the sort of cheekbones that could slice metal.
She met him at a fashion show six years ago and the two of them quickly became friends. He came to watch her support Rihanna in London, and they later ended up in New York at the same time, where they went out with a group of friends. As they saw each other more, the friendship developed into romance.
“I always thought he was really nice because he seemed, like, really normal,” says Pixie. “I think that was it more than anything else, and I sort of got him straight away. In that showbizzy world, he was just like a person from back home. He was really easy to talk to.”
Does she ever worry that she met The One at the age of 19, before she’d experienced more of life?
“No,” she replies, very definitely. “I think every relationship is different and there are no real rules. Some of my friends have dated loads of people and others are still with the first person they started going out with, a bit like me. If it feels right, you just go with it.”
Both Pixie and Oliver’s schedules mean long spells apart. He’s been travelling to Leicester when work allows it, but Pixie admits there are stretches when, save for FaceTime, they barely see each other.
“Either I’m away or he’s away, and those times are hard. But we’re used to it because it’s been like that since the beginning. We have complete trust, and I think if we didn’t have that, it would be much more difficult than it is. I’d like to think we were heading that way [towards marriage], definitely.”
Aside from performing, Pixie also has a collection of hair products called Paint – which includes chalks, metallic sprays and wash-out colours – as well as her own eyelash range. There’s the possibility of a fashion line in the future, although it would be different from her collaboration with Lipsy a few years ago – an arrangement that produced four successful collections but that didn’t sit comfortably with Pixie.
“Some of the pieces – which had to be there because they were their bestsellers – were not things I would personally wear. I’d want to do it so every single piece was my own,” she says.
Pixie drains her teacup and happily poses for a selfie with an eagle-eyed fan who has spotted her huddled away in our low-lit corner.
As she leaves to head back to her temporary digs, she mentions a recent meeting in LA with the legendary producer Quincy Jones, who gave her some advice she now plans to live by: “He told me: ‘Have humility with your creativity and grace with your success,’” she says.
Pixie already has both those things in spades.

She’s put her music career on temporary hold as she takes on the role of Holly Golightly in the theatre production of Breakfast At Tiffany’s from next month. 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.
She talks running out of wardrobe space, meeting her model boyfriend on the FROW and why she refuses to turn her back on the music charts.

|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.”
