Abbey Clancy Models New Ultimo Bridal Lingerie Collection – the 28-year old is clearly going to make the most of all the exposure she has gained by winning the Strictly Come Dancing crown last December and her latest venture sees her modelling a sexy new bridal collection for lingerie company Ultimo.
Abbey has already modelled one collection for Ultimo since being signed up as their latest model during her Strictly run last year. That first collection featured mostly darker styles so this new bridal collection is about as different an assignment as she is likely to see whilst modelling lingerie.
As with most bridal lingerie collections the focus is on white, sexy items with corsets, french knickers and stockings and garter belts. And just to make sure the famous bridal dressing rules are followed on the big day the lingerie collections all also feature a very subtle “something blue” detailing.
The Ultimo deal is one of the best things to come out of Abbey’s Strictly experience as she is reportedly earning around £250k for being the “face and body” of the lingerie brand.
She replaced Michael Buble’s wife, the Argentine actress and model Luisana Lopilato, as the figurehead for the Ultimo advertising campaigns. Luisana and Michael welcomed their first child back in August last year so the time was right for her to take a break from the world of modelling for a while.
Speaking about the new bridal collection Ultimo’s founder Michelle Mone said ‘The dress of your dreams will always turn heads, but the right lingerie is an important and special purchase that you need to get right. Bridal lingerie should fit you perfectly, complementing and enhancing the figure as well as being invisible.’
Michelle, who is a close friend of Carol Vorderman, found herself in the headlines a couple of days ago as rumours surfaced that she had hooked up with Aussie cricket legend and former fiance of Liz Hurley, Shane Warne. Both Michelle and Shane denied the rumours on Twitter but the cricketer’s chances of a reconciliation with Liz Hurley can’t have been helped by his name being linked to the curvy businesswoman.
The new Ultimo Bridal Collection can be bought from today at Debenhams stores or online direct from Ultimo.
