NICOLE X MISSGUIDED: BLOGGER DINNER

To celebrate the launch of the second Nicole X Missguided collection we took some of blogger crushes out for dinner dressed head-to-toe in the collection.

Our five blogging babes rocked the collection.  They arrived looking fierce and confident just how we feel Nicole would have wanted. The evening was spent chatting all things fashion and enjoying the amazing food Bob Bob Ricard had to offer…

…and yes we did push the button for champagne!

NICOLE X MISSGUIDED: THE WAIT IS OVER

Today Nicole returns as a sequel to the iconic Nicole x Missguided collection.  We’re super excited to finally share the super slick collaboration with super-babe Nicole Scherzinger and show off the latest campaign, but now we’re taking a look behind the scenes through the eyes of a Missguided customer and Nicole fan.  She was the winner of a competition we ran to give one of you lucky lot the opportunity to come on location with us as we shot the fierce campaign.  Here’s what she had to say…

“Hey guys I’m Louise Keane and just over a month ago I entered a Missguided competition and won. The competition winner would get the fantastic opportunity to go on set of the Nicole x Missguided shoot and have a sneak peek at the new collection.

So the terms of the competition were basically to create a 15 second long video of yourself stating why you love Missguided and why you would love to get on set with Nicole Scherzinger.  Being an avid Missguided customer and also being a huge fan of Nicole Scherzinger’s personal style and music, I jumped at the opportunity.

After a bit of practice (I will not lie, it did take about 15 takes to perfect!) I then posted the video on Instagram. I nervously waited for a response, and not long after posting the video I spotted a little comment under my post from Missguided.  To my surprise I had been shortlisted and later that day I found out that I had won the competition.”

 The Shoot

nicole x missguided

“On arrival I was welcomed by the Missguided team which included the lovely Creative Manager Sam, the extremely stylish Creative Executive Sara and the founder of Missguided, Nitin Passi, also known as ‘Mr Missguided’.

After getting a tour of the incredible studio I was introduced to another competition winner (Danielle) who worked at Missguided and who I’d be spending most of the day with.  The Missguided team sat in the studio and helped make everything come together including the Design Manager Natasha who worked with Nicole to create the first stunning line as well as this year’s collection.

So, you may remember last year’s racy campaign where Nicole was “on the run” in California sporting strong sultry dresses and co-ords, killer leather pants and daring tailored jumpsuits. The idea behind this year’s shoot was that Nicole was being reprimanded for her crimes committed in the previous campaign.

The first set was designed as a detention centre in the classic film noir form.  Nicole walked onto set rocking a strong bold cat liner with a classic red lip with a slight contour, and perfectly curled hair.

This showstopping red dress has got to be one of my favorites in the collection, the cut is perfection and the backless detail is simplicity at its finest. As Nicole said ‘at £25 how can you not get this dress?!’

At the end of the shoot Nicole invited Danielle and I to have a look at the photographs with the team.  She was extremely lovely and had us all in stitches with her humor.  It was amazing to see all of the work and the efforts of the Missguided team and Nicole to create such an iconic collection.

It was honestly an amazing experience and I feel privileged to have been chosen as the winner of this competition. I met a bunch of lovely people and I’d like to thank Missguided for giving me this experience.   I cannot wait to get my hands on the new line. There is literally a dress for all shapes and sizes, and at prices between £20-£45 you really can’t go wrong.

So if you haven’t already, head down to Missguided and check out the amazing collection.”

Nicole x Missguided Collaboration

Nicole x Missguided is back! After an explosive first season, the collaboration returns but fiercer than ever before.  This time round, we see Nicole x Missguided feature ready to kill pieces in the form of super sultry dresses, cut out co-ords and sports luxe styles.  We take time out to speak to the designers who worked with Nicole to talk inspiration, favourite pieces and all things Nicole…

What was the inspiration behind the collection?

Nicole is the inspiration behind the collection. Her attitude and the way she carries herself is what it’s all about. She’s a powerful, bold, strong female and she wanted this to be translated to the customer! It was designed by Nicole to be worn by Nicole. It’s a collection that’s premium but affordable.

Why the change in colour palette?

We wanted to stick to the same theme with three very dominant primary colours because it’s such a bold statement. There was blue for summer and for winter we wanted red. It’s very sexy, bold and sharp. It’s the same monochrome with added elements of sequins that creates a party feel for Christmas, but still keeps it really clean.

What sets it apart from the first Nicole x Missguided collection?

The story carries on but elements have been added in for the new season. We’ve got outerwear pieces for a quick update. Think fishnet bombers, scuba bikers and hoodies. Casual pieces have been thrown into the mix for an urban-cool feel. Last season it was dominated by sex appeal but you can dress it down and edge it up with jackets this time. It’s more true to Nicole and how she dresses. 

What’s your favourite piece from the collection?

I have two! The red dress with a low cut back is such a classic staple. The twinset is such a new fresh take and it embodies winter whites, which is trend driven and perfect for new season.

Why do Nicole and Missguided work together?

Nicole has the same attitude as a Missguided girl. They’re both confident, strong, sexy and have an overriding cool. She’s a perfect match!

Get a first look at the sequel to the first season of the Nicole x Missguided collection.  The story continues here…

ONE TO WATCH: BILLIE BLACK

Billie Black is a 19 year old singer-songwriter fresh out of Brit school and offering out music with a downtempo, electronic sound.  Not only is she inspired by some of our fave artists but she’s worked with them too.  James Blake and Sampha are just two she’s created tunes with this year.

This chick has a 90’s R&B hint to her voice and she’s created some incredible beats with “I Waited for You” getting our undivided attention.  She’s definitely our one to watch for next year….
