Fashion Tips

Alexandra Burke
“Always love who you are. No one loves a size zero girl – guys like girls who are healthy and vibrant with a glow. Dress for your size, and don’t be afraid of colour – especially in the summer.”

Esmée Denters

“My style is feminine with a bit of toughness. I’m girly but not overly so; I watch fashion editorials for inspiration. When finding your own style don’t be afraid to try different things. Some things may look amazing, some may look crazy but it’s great to experiment!”

“Fashion and music are an expression of who you are – an extension of you. Always keep your look smart, street, cool and fresh!”

Love and Relationships


Marvin Humes from JLS
“Always be a gentleman when you want to date a beautiful lady. The old English gentleman vibe has gone and we need to try and keep a hold of that – men look after your ladies!”

Jason Derulo

“Always be yourself and don’t put on an act. Find someone who understands you, someone you feel comfortable talking to about goofy stuff. The other day I couldn’t take my jacket off during a routine on stage! I need a girl I can share that with but right now I’m riding solo!”

Party like a Rockstar!

Pixie Lott

“When you’re going clubbing I would always say eat before you leave the house. Otherwise you’ll end up with an awful hangover! That’s the biggest thing I’ve learnt!”

Jason Derulo

“Keep your dance moves simple. Even if you are a badass dancer just bust a little two-step, take it easy and enjoy the night!”

Career Wisdom



“Life and work can be crazy. The best way for me to stay grounded is talking to my mum every day no matter what. You should always make time for family.”

Sean Kingston
“If you are an aspiring singer, always be safe in your choices, stay humble and keep God first. Persistence is the key, so don’t give up. And never stop working on your craft.”

Jason Derulo

“When you start out in a new career, always take advice from those in the know but never be afraid to spread your wings and do you. At the end of the day”

Lisa Snowdon & Johnny Vaughan
Lisa: “Find a good partner in crime that you can bounce off! It’s great to work with someone who is talented at what they do – I watched Johnny for years!”
Johnny: “Yeah, she’s like a stalker but seriously – having chemistry with the people you work with is so important because you will be excited about it every day.”

“I’ve learnt a lot from Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder because they’re all amazing at a specific talent. I’m a student – you can never stop learning. And if you start to do well in your area like Justin Bieber is right now, enjoy it but don’t get too consumed by it because history is made in time – it doesn’t happen in a moment. Always stay focused on your craft. Look to positive influences like moi!”

“We’re trying to break America right now. It’s so different to the UK and we’re working hard at making it over there. When you try something new, you’ve got to give it your all!”

Beauty & Grooming Bits


“When it comes to having clear skin always use tea tree oil – that’s how I keep my face looking smooth!”

“For us girls you can never use enough glitter or hairspray! They are the two key ingredients for my look!”

Festival Must-Haves

Pixie Lott
“Always take your wellies! And avoid the loos!”

Esmée Denters
“I love military boots they are great for walking on grass and take facial wipes – I always carry them wherever I go!”
