Girls Aloud star excited about strutting the catwalk

Nicola Roberts is in talks to become the new face of Vivienne Westwood.

The Girls Aloud singer is said to have impressed bosses at the fashion house with her unique look.

But Nicola, 23, says she initially thought the offer was a wind-up.

‘I had been to a Vivienne Westwood show and was having a good night,’ she says. ‘Then one of Vivienne’s people came over and said: “We’ve been thinking about it for a while and we would really love it if you would do a campaign.”

‘I said: “Now, don’t you be bullsh***ing me. Don’t come over here and get me excited and be talking sh** because that’s just not fair!” He said: “No, no, it’s definitely something we’ve thought about.”

‘I would love to do it – I mean, Vivienne Westwood! She’s a fellow redhead! It was a massive compliment.’
