Michelle Keegan chats wedding plans with HELLO! Fashion as she unveils new Lipsy line

Michelle Keegan has unveiled the third instalment of her glamorous clothing range for high street giant Lipsy, featuring dazzing dresses and sequinned suits.

Speaking to HELLO! Fashion, the former Coronation Street star revealed that her hectic schedule alongside designing the collection meant that her and fiancé Mark Wright's wedding plans aren't moving as swiftly as expected.

"I've been really, really busy with work," she revealed. "So we haven't really moved on from what we did a few months ago, but we've got the main bulk sorted."

Tell us a bit about your new collection.

It's something I've always been interested in. To be given the opportunity is amazing. I saw a girl the other day walk past in one of my dresses. I got such a buzz! This collection is for Christmas so it's got some party pieces – my favourite is the short suit, and the classic LBD made more glamorous with mesh and sequins. There's also a gorgeous cropped fur coat that will go over a dress at night. It's really cool.

How has the response been so far?

It's been amazing, the feedback has been unbelievable. In the first few days my first collection went online, we sold out, and then people were waiting for more stock. I couldn't have imagined it to have gone so well.

Which celebrity's style do you particularly admire?

I always say Victoria Beckham because she always looks amazing. Whether it's a day look or a night look, she looks effortlessly classy. Really feminine, but tailored.

Which celebrity would you most like to see wearing your clothes?

Cheryl Cole. She always puts on an outfit and straight away it looks really cool on her. I could see her wearing this really nice oxblood pencil skirt I've got. It has a really nice texture, a bit like snakeskin.

How would you describe your own style?

I'd say quite classic and feminine. I like block colours, I don't like too much fuss, texture and prints. I also love tailored outfits, especially two-piece suits. And monochrome!

Michelle revealed her and Mark Wright's wedding plans had taken a backseat

Do you ask Mark for advice before a night out?

If I'm wearing something I'm not sure about, I ask him. He will normally say if he doesn’t like something, but to be fair I'm quite lucky because we have similar taste, so usually I agree with him. It's the same the other way around – he sometimes asks me for my opinion.

How has it been moving to Essex?

I've been going to Essex for two years so it's actually quite homely to me now! I get on with everyone down there, and my family visit a lot. I just have to wait for our wardrobe to be properly fitted, as at the moment I feel like I'm living out of boxes! I think what I'll miss about Manchester though is that I won't be able to just meet up with Mum for a coffee when I'm bored. And going round for roast dinner!

How are your wedding plans going?

I've been really, really busy with work, so we haven't really moved on from what we did a few months ago, but we've got the main bulk sorted. I'm going to start going for wedding dress fittings, although I have no idea what style I'm going for yet. My friends are mostly excited about the hen – we have a few ideas but we haven't booked it yet!
