Alexandra Burke Is Single Again, Christian Louboutin’s Cosmetics Range

13 May

Alexandra Burke – it seems that the singer has finally ditched boyfriend Jermain Defoe after yet more accusations of him cheating on her.

Firstly it was model Laura Brown who Defoe cheated on her with and now nurse Kirsty Crummey has said that Defoe has slept with her too.

It seems the Spurs and England footballer is not dependable and Alexandra has had enough of his two-timing ways. She tried hard to forgive him after she found out about Laura but it seems that she was the only one trying to make the relationship work.

23-year old Alexandra is still best-known for winning the 5th series of X Factor back in 2008. After winning she released a cover of Leonard Cohen’s classic track Hallelujah as her first single and it took the record for most sales of a single in 24 hours in Europe, with a total of 105k copies sold on its first day of release. The single became the Christmas Number 1 for 2008 and went on to sell over 1m copies.

As well as her successful career in the music business in 2009 Alexandra also launched a new fashion line for Dolce & Gabbana after signing a six figure contract with them. As part of the deal she wore their clothes in her music videos. She also later launched her own clothing line with boy band JLS and the company 2KX sells both mens and womens clothing. The lines are clearly popular because as of today all the womens clothing available online is showing as having sold out.

On top of all this Alexandra is also very committed to a number of charities. She has helped to raise funds for many good causes including childhood leukemia charities, Breast Cancer Care, Help for Heroes and Save The Children.

Although there has been no direct comment by either Defoe or Alexandra about the break-up she did say yesterday via her Twitter account: ‘What don’t kill you, only makes you stronger.’

Christian Louboutin cosmetics – the current biggest name in footwear has announced that he is to launch a new range of cosmetics next year.

The 49-year old Frenchman, who is currently the subject of an exhibition at London’s Design Museum, will be collaborating with Batallure Beauty to create the range.

It is a natural move forward for Louboutin who was inspired by a bottle of red nail varnish when he decided to colour the soles of his stilettos with his now trademark red colouring.

Due to his high-profile in the fashion industry Louboutin had received a number of offers from companies keen to create a range of cosmetics with his name and involvement. Batallure Beauty are obviously delighted to be chosen by Louboutin to create the new range and their chairman said of the new range: “Wearing a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes completely transforms a woman and Christian will bring that same transformative quality to women through his beauty products.”

Louboutin is also pleased to be finally launching a cosmetics range saying: “The beauty adventure is a natural extension for someone like me, who likes to empower women and to be a part of creating beauty seems like the right next step”

If he brings the same style to cosmetics as he has brought to footwear then we can look forward to some exciting products in the new range.

The move into cosmetics seems quite a popular one at the moment as only last month Marc Jacobs announced that he was entering the make-up market. He said that the cosmetics line would help to give people even more choice. Jacobs already has a fragrance range as well as selling clothing, bags, sunglasses and watches.
