‘great Footwear Choice!’ Fearne Cotton Gets Caught Out In Morning Downpour As She Heads To Work In Hot Pink Heels

I like going out and taking chances, Large says. One of those risks was agreeing to front Pink Martini when singer China Forbes had vocal surgery in 2011. When the offer arrived I didnt want to do it, Large recalls. But (pianist) Thomas (Lauderdale) insisted. I said I never heard your music. He said it didnt matter. And he was right. I love it. Pink Martini is an eccentric Portland-based band that mixes jazz, pop, Latin and lounge. There is no other group like Pink Martini, Large says. Its such a challenge. I slept with ear buds in when I was studying the music. I had to learn to sing in French, Croatian and Japanese, but it was well worth it. Large was kept on by the band even after Forbes announced her return six months ago. Both vocalists recorded with the band on Get Happy, which drops September 24. The album is filled with eclectic, wistful, melancholy songs.

Obviously still in a summery mood, the fashion lover pulled on a striking pair of hot pink heels for her Friday at work.

Fearne Cotton shows off her quirky style (and her bra) in backless top as she films Celebrity Juice Fearne did come somewhat prepared with her green waterproof and pretty pink umbrella though. She also ditched her summery dresses shes been spotted in this week for a pair of star print trousers. At least she had an umbrella: Fearne did come somewhat prepared for her stroll to work with a pink umbrella and waterproof jacket The star, who gave birth to her first child Rex in February, finished off her look with a black shirt and a silver star pendant which matched her quirky trousers perfectly. Fearne is no doubt looking forward to her weekend after a busy first week back at work after her seven month maternity leave. The star has returned to her Monday to Friday Radio 1 morning show as well as re-joining her pals Holly Willoughby and Leigh Francis on hit comedy panel series Celebrity Juice. Summer’s over: The Radio 1 DJ cut a lonely and wet figure as she headed to the studios in central London When shes not working hard the blonde is spending as much time as possible with her little boy and fiance Jesse Wood, the son of Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood. Fearne recently opened up about life with Jesse in an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, revealing that she hit rock bottom in 2011 after a failed engagement to her ex Jesse Jenkins. What you dont know at the time is that as one door closes, another opens and soon after, I met the love of my life and got to have a baby, she said of finding love again. Nearly there: The new mum managed to raise a smile as she walked through the pouring rain Jesse and I met through a friend who works in a restaurant in Ibiza and we just clicked.
