Alexandra Burke reveals dream wedding
Spotted: Alexandra Burke at the launch of her brand new lipstick and lipgloss collection at The Rose Club in London. We caught up with the songstress to talk about her fave designers, big-day styling and how to work a red carpet-worthy statement red lip.
She’s spent the last few months collaborating with the Make Up Academy to create a new range of double-ended pout enhancers that work to give you gorgeously glossy lips. Talking to You & Your Wedding about the launch, she said: “I love it because it’s a special collaboration that speaks volumes about my personality – they’ve let me be a part of it from the beginning. I was literally on top of everything down to what photos were used, the shades, the packaging, the name – everything.
“For brides, I really recommend the ‘It’s A Situation’ shade, which is smudge-proof and totally bridal-worthy so when you kiss the groom it’s not a problem!”
Her new boyfriend, Tottenham footballer Jermain Defoe, was also at the event to show his support. The couple might be in the very early stages of their relationship but it sounds like Miss Burke – or should we say – Mrs Defoe-to-be – already has a clear idea of her dream wedding day style.
“I think I’d go traditional with a modern twist,” she reveals. “I love a big white dress with a long train and a ‘bring it’ red lip. I’d love to collaborate with Vera Wang and Vivienne Westwood to create gowns designed exclusively by moi! Like how I’ve been changing outfits tonight, I’ll be changing outfits about five times on my wedding day. The wedding would spread over three days so there’s time to flaunt the beauty of every dress I wear!”
It sounds like Alexandra is going to be an uber glam bride who wants a super luxe day with all the trimmings – watch this space!
