Meeting Pixie at Breakfast at Tiffany's




Arrived in plenty of time to see Pixie


Waiting patiently for the curtain to rise




Beautiful moving performance of Moon river was perfect


The play was very interesting and very different to the Audrey Hepburn film


Pixie's acting was great, she was cute and disarming whilst sustaining her American accent throughout. But I never warmed to Holly Golightly the character, maybe I wasn't meant too. Bob the Cat was a seasoned trooper and should next be seen in Britain's Got Talent .


Then it was over and the curtain call came.

We headed outside and decided it was definitely Burger time at Byron Burgers. Whilst inside, my better half spotted the lead actor Matt Barber outside sitting at a table.... then to my delight Pixie came and sat there as well. I just had to say hello and get my programme signed...


I got up from my table so quick, I left my phone inside, so i asked Pixie if it was OK to come back to take a Selfie. She is such a sweetie she said of course no problem!


This really was the icing on the cake and a lovely pre birthday treat.
Hoping to see her next in concert when her 4th album arrives next year.

Looking seasonal in her choice of attire, she looking a vision of summer in a pair of white hotpants.
Mixing it up with contrasting prints, she ensured there was plenty of colour on display thanks to her vest top, a backpack and a bandana. 
Adding some matching sunglasses, she even injected some canary yellow thanks to her strappy shoes.

4 hours earlier - while busy in her stage role - she posted a message on Instagram, which read: 'Sad to be missing out on Saturdays antics of V festival this wknd. 
'Have been every single year since I was 17.... might have to pop in for a sneaky visit tomorrow!'.
And, judging by the smile on her face, she was delighted to finally be there.

Naturally, Pixie's boyfriend Oliver was equally hipster-inspired, wearing a short tracksuit in paisley.
Not that he was on the only handsome man to catch pixie's attention, though.
She was also seen chatting to Tom Pearce, who's a good friend of Pixie's older brother.

Pixie Lott: You have to have self belief



Pixie Lott: You have to have self belief

PIXIE Lott chats beauty, style and starring in Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

Some people may have been surprised when pop star Pixie Lott landed the starring role of Holly Golightly in the stage version of Breakfast At Tiffany’s, but the singer actually started her career in the theatre.
Pixie, 25, joined stage school aged five and had appeared in a West End production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang by the time she was 16. And, she says, she always knew that she wanted to be a star.
“Drink lots of water – it’s the key to healthy, young-looking skin”
Pixie Lott
“There was never any other option in my head. As a kid I used to watch documentaries about Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera and I knew that was what I wanted. I’d work out all the steps it took to get them where they were.
“I was fascinated by them going to auditions, learning dance routines. Even when I was 10, I was thinking I needed to hurry up.
“My parents were thrown because I was this kid with a fixed idea. I never doubted I could do it.” Pixie’s Holly Golightly is based on the original Truman Capote novella and set in the 1940s rather than the 60s film version starring Audrey Hepburn. “I didn’t think about Audrey Hepburn,” says Pixie. “I didn’t watch the movie version. I didn’t want to intimidate myself.
I just thought, ‘This is a dream role and I’m going to go for it and play Holly my way.’ “It was a bit like doing a cover version of a great song. You can’t replicate it; you have to just do it with self belief.” Pixie also has the support of model boyfriend Oliver Cheshire, who she met when she was just 19.
“I know I was really young but I didn’t feel that young because I’d been working for so long and I just knew we were right for each other. I’ve got pretty good instincts. “People always ask me about getting married but we’re not at that point yet.

“We’re too young. We have crazy jobs, crazy schedules, and we don’t need to rush. “He is my family. He’s incredibly supportive of me. I’m aware of what that means and how lucky I am.
We give each other freedom in what we do but we also like being together.” In between her busy music and acting career, Pixie has also found time to launch a collection of hair paints available at Superdrug, which are perfect for summer festivals and changing your look for parties.
Here Pixie tells TV Life more about the new range and she reveals her top beauty and style secrets…



Tell me about your Pixie Lott Paints and how the collaboration with Superdrug came about?




I am so excited to have my own hair dye range and it’s been great having products that my friends and I all love to use. I have a collection of wash in/wash out hair dyes, glitter sprays, hair chalks and pens – mostly in pastel colours.
Why did you want to break into the beauty industry?
From a young age I have always loved trying out different beauty products. I remember trying out my mum’s lipsticks when I was little, and then experimenting with different products on my naturally curly hair.
Music was and is my first love and number one passion, but extending my energies into beauty felt like a natural addition to that.
What is your favourite product in the collection and why?
My favourite one is the pink sorbet wash in hair dye – I just love the colour. I’m also a huge fan of the chalks and sprays as I can play around with them when I don’t have time to go for an all-over colour change.

Who do you see using the range and at what kind of occasion?
I am really excited to see that people are using the range at festivals – it’s always fun to experiment more at festivals, and people take cool beauty and fashion risks.
Who are your ultimate beauty icons and why?
Edie Sedgwick and Brigitte Bardot – they are stunning and I love Brigitte’s smokey-eye look.
How do you stay in such good shape? Can you explain your typical weekly workout regime?
I don’t tend to work out or go to the gym but I always feel like I am racing around and on my feet.
When I did Strictly, it was such a great workout regime. I hope to get back into dancing when I have a little time off. I always make sure I drink enough water and generally eat healthily, however I don’t ever limit myself or cut out treats.
What kind of diet do you stick to?
I’ve never dieted, I just tend to eat healthily and enjoy everything in moderation. If you want a treat, you should treat yourself.

You’re currently starring in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. How do you feel about portraying one of fashion’s biggest icons?
It’s such an honour to play Holly Golightly, and to take inspiration from Audrey Hepburn. Our play is based on Truman Capote’s book, not the film, so it’s set in the 1940s not the 60s.
I love all the outfits I get to wear in the play and it’s been so incredible to take on the role of Holly.
Do you identify with Audrey Hepburn and if so why?
She’s such an inspiration, always so elegant and beautiful. While the Holly I play is based on the book, it’s still such an honour to be mentioned in the same sentence as Audrey.
I really identify with the character of Holly Golightly, little things like we are both short-sighted, both live at Number 2 and have a brother we dote on. Has starring in Breakfast At Tiffany’s influenced your personal style? I’ve found myself becoming more and more influenced by 1940s fashion and beauty. It’s really opened up my eyes to that era.
What’s your favourite make-up look for daytime and evening?
My favourite daytime look is dewy skin with the help of a highlighter, a simple coat of mascara and a subtle lip gloss. For the evening I like to go for a smokey eye and a set of Eylure lashes.
Which one beauty product couldn’t you live without?
I couldn’t live without my Nubo Cell Dynamic Day SPF20 Moisturiser – I love this moisturiser, and it also helps to protect my skin in the sun.
What’s your best budget buy?
I love Max Factor’s mascara – it’s so good and last for hours. I would also recommend the Pixie Paint chalks – they’re a lot of fun.
What is your one favourite anti-ageing trick?
Drink lots of water – it’s the key to healthy, young-looking skin.
