TOWIE's Lauren Pope launched her first collection with InTheStyle.co.uk back in March and we were thrilled to hear that the stylish DJ had created a new one for high summer.

We met up with the Essex stunner to chat about the collection, her New York splurge and the Kim Kardashian foundation that she's raving about...

We love the new collection, what's your favourite piece?

Oh, all of it! I love the tropical print skirt, which I wore in Marbs. I love the royal blue co-ord as well and the blue jumpsuit. It's been everything that I want in a collection, so I love it all. It was easy to get carried away with what I like and I had to remember to make it realistic for other people to wear too.

What did you use as inspiration for the range?

A lot of bloggers and also celebrities like Nicole Richie and Victoria Beckham. Magazines as well – I'll always take pictures on my phone and stores them to put on my mood board. Any little thing I see, like if I walk down the street and see a cool outfit, I'll take a picture.

If you had last-minute Saturday night plans, what would be your go-to piece for a quick glam outfit change?

I love co-ords at the moment; I think they go really well. There are so many styles now to suit different shapes. It looks like you've made an effort, but it's just so easy to put on!

Aside from your own collection, what other shops are you loving at the moment?

Topshop! I went into it recently and got loads. I went in to get some basics and came out with so many things, like vests, jumpers. There's so much bright stuff at the moment and I'm like 'What am I going to wear it with?!', so I went in there and got loads of blazers and some really cool tailored trousers.

I also love Zara, River Island and Oasis. Asos is great too – it's so easy!

How about your biggest fashion splurge?

I went to New York and bought a Balenciaga bag. It's grey suede and it just goes with everything. It's a really nice relaxed slouchy bag. I got it from an outlet over there called Woodbury Common Premium Outlets. It worked out to be about £600 and it should have been £1,200. It's amazing!

Your summer make-up is fab, what products have you been using lately?

I'm obsessed with orange lips at the moment. I love MAC ones and like an orange or peachy lip with just some lashes. I keep it bronzed and peachy.

I switched my foundations to a lighter one, too. I saw that Kim Kardashian's make-up artist used Urban Decay's Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Foundation on her wedding day and got it in Marbella.

Hair wise, I keep it quite relaxed, just 'cause of the heat – it's a pain having to deal with humidity!

What beauty bargains are you a fan of?

Sudocream, I love that. I use it as a face mask. Girls With Attitude Lashes are great too, I used them when I went away.

I'm a bit of a make-up addict, so I'm obsessed with MAC and Charlotte Tilbury – it's a cheaper version of Tom Ford. I've got the brown Rock 'n' Kohl Eyeliner, the brown eyes palette and Filmstar Bronze & Glow contour palette – which has a really nice shimmer in it. If you go in there, they look at your eye and hair colour and tell you what you should wear.
