How Millie Mackintosh Is Dealing With Her Fashion Business Closing

Look - Tue, 03/20/2018 - 15:46

It's been a tough week for the Made In Chelsea star, but she's determined to bounce back

There was resounding sadness in the LOOK office last week, when Millie Mackintosh announced she would be closing her self-titled fashion range. The business, Cammac, will be liquidated after it was revealed the label owes £584K, with Millie personally losing £178K.

Announcing the closure on Instagram, Millie revealed the business had struggled with the current financial climate, saying: ‘[It] has proved immensely challenging and the business is no longer sustainable.’

We imagine it’s a rather gloomy time for Millie, 28, but despite the news, a source speaking exclusively to LOOK has revealed that she’s in positive spirits, determined to focus on projects and endorsements set for the following year.

She’s also getting married to former Made In Chelsea co-star Hugo Taylor, 31, and throwing herself into planning the wedding.

‘Millie is devastated that her business has gone bust – but she allowed herself a couple of days to feel sorry for herself and is now vowing to come out fighting and get her life and career back on track,’ explains a friend.

There are apparently three endorsement offers on the table for the star and last year, Millie launched her first beauty line with Boots, which is set to continue. Our insider reveals she’s been hard at work on the next range, with new products set to drop in September.

There are rumours the former reality star is liquidating the business, only to be starting another one, but LOOK can reveal this isn’t the case.

‘Millie is not about to launch a new fashion label,’ her agent told us exclusively.

We think there could be a potential move into fitness this year, though. ‘Millie’s been spending lots of time in the gym, which has helped her stay in a positive and motivated head space,’ says a close pal.

‘Hugo has played a big part in lifting her spirits, too. Planning the wedding has been a great distraction and has been her salvation through all of this.’

We’re truly gutted for Millie, but we know she’ll make a brilliant comeback. In the meantime, it seems the wedding countdown is officially on…

The Touching Significance Behind Kate Middleton’s St Patrick’s Day Outfit

Look - Mon, 03/19/2018 - 15:32

By Molly West

From the editors of Woman & Home

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out to celebrate St Patrick’s Day at the weekend, in one of the Duchess’s final engagements before she’s due to give birth.

The royal couple visited the 1st Battalion of the Irish Guards in London, of which William is Colonel, on Saturday. And as ever, Catherine made sure she was dressed appropriately for the occasion.

She chose to wear a green Catherine Walker coat with a fur collar and matching cuffs, something she recycled from her recent royal tour in Sweden.

To accessorise, the Duchess chose a simple pair of black heels and a Gina Foster hat, which she previously wore for St Patrick’s Day in 2014.

However, it was perhaps the smallest of all her accessories that were perhaps the most significant – the stunning drop earrings she wore to complement the outfit.

The £3,500 tourmaline, diamond and amethyst earrings are not only beautiful but also have a lot of meaning attached to them, as they were reportedly made to celebrate the birth of Princess Charlotte in 2015.

They were designed by luxury jeweller Kiki McDonough, but it is not known who gave them to Kate.

Kate Middleton’s earrings had a special significance

During their visit, Catherine and William greeted 350 soldiers as well as their official mascot, Domhnall the Irish Wolfhound.

Due to the difficult weather, Domhnall’s handler Aidan Cathcart was concerned he might not behave, saying: ‘He is the first guy on the parade. He’s the main guy.’

However, all seemed to go to plan and Catherine sweetly fastened a shamrock to the mascot, who she has become quite familiar with over the years of attending the parade.

The couple managed to escape the cold weather by attending the Guardsman’s Lunch, where the Duke of Cambridge happily sipped on a pint of Guinness, but heavily pregnant Catherine stuck to water.

This will be one of the very last public appearances from the Duchess, as she is due to give birth to her third child in a matter of weeks.

Ahead of the birth, the Royal Family has created a new webpage dedicated to the baby, which will provide updates on the birth ‘as they become available’.
