Mollie King's Loved by Mollie campaign and Mollie wearing plum Oasis at the dinner [Oasis]
Last night we went for dinner at the Soho Hotel with the lovely, lovely Mollie King to have a first look at her Loved By Mollie collection for Oasis. Mollie has been a champion of the high street giant for some time, choosing to wear Oasis to a number of high profile events. Now Mollie has added the role of celebrity style ambassador at Oasis to her jam-packed CV, which is the brand's first ever celebrity partnership.
So what does a celebrity style ambassador actually do? Well Mollie has compiled a 45-piece collection, which is an edit of her favourite pieces from the Autumn Winter 2013 collection, including plum leather pencil skirts, oversized tan coats and dreamy pastels. Plus the blonde pop star also stars in the campaign to go alongside her Loved By Mollie edit.
Mollie was giddy about her collection, skipping around the large dining table to talk about her take on this season. She told us that: 'I went into the Oasis office and there were rails and rails of clothes that I could dive through. It was like every girl's dream! I picked out my favourite bits, but it was really hard to narrow everything down because obviously I couldn't pick the whole collection! I wanted a mixture of evening wear and casual pieces.'

It was also announced at the dinner that Mollie has been signed by Next Models, who also have Alexa Chung, Rita Ora, Alice Delall, Harley Viera Newton, Lana Del Rey, Suki Waterhouse and Lou Doillon on their star-studded books. Mollie is seriously into fashion, and is a regular fixture on the front row at London Fashion Week. Next's Sarah Leon told us that they noticed Mollie due to her infectious personality and keen interest in fashion, as she said 'you can just tell when somebody, like Rita Ora and Mollie, has that super star quality.' So we can expect to see many, many more fashion collaborations from this Saturdays star.
We can tell you, this is a girl who really, really loves clothes. Talking us through her rail she said: 'My favourite piece is this camel coat. I really like the mens tailoring look to wear it with a cigarette pant or black jean and a white t shirt.' She added: 'I also love doing a look the whole way through and playing with textures. I wore a navy jacket, with a navy denim t shirt and a navy leather skirt. A few years ago you'd have gone 'I can't do all navy', but now it's so good! If I am going to go for it, I say go hard or go home. So today I went ALL into plum tones.'
Tucking into our caramel apple sponge, sat next to Mollie, we had to grill her about her top fashion tips for this season. Expect to see Mollie doing more menswear, as she said: 'I love the menswear vibe and oversized coats. It's so good for those days when you don't want to be in anything tight, you just want to chuck something over your outfit and have a comfy day.' Her edit is fabulous, but the shopping bag starring her puppy Alfie is the real winner. It's the cutest shopping carrier on the high street - FACT.
The Loved By Mollie collection launches in the brand's 17 flagship stores and on digital channels today. See the collection in the gallery below...
