Fearne in bloom
Last night (on the oh so exciting eve of London Fashion Week) yummy mummy-to-be Fearne Cotton presented her Very.co.uk S/S ’13 collection at Claridges ballroom.
And while the clothes in the range - her tenth collection with the fashion house - were right on trend, baby Cotton-Wood stole the show when Fearne spoke of 'just about squeezing' herself and her bump into her dress.
A positively glowing Fearne said of her 24-look collection: 'For Spring Summer ’13, I imagined my collection being worn by a classic English rose in a beautiful country garden but I also wanted her to be edgy.
'My designs are based around the eccentric pieces I think she would wear; floaty dresses, but with bold and bright prints and girly floral jeans teamed with tough tailored peplum tops.
'My goal was to create clothes to look both beautiful in and have fun in.'
Our favourite item was a champagne pink bodycon dress with flamboyant fishtail train - modelled on the night by Fearne's future sister-in-law Leah Wood.
Fearne’s SS13 collection is available from late-December 2012 at Very.co.uk.
