At a healthy size 10 and an envious 179cm tall, Louise Kenny is one of those people who you can’t ignore. She’s not only gorgeous, but she’s sharp as a tack and witty as all hell. I’ve known her my whole life, because when she was 17 her and my Mum met at their job at an old-school Super-Colour print shop and badabing badaboom, best friends they became.
La Perla, the iconic Italian lingerie company started in 1954, has just released a smokin’ hot campaign for its 2017 range featuring current Kardashian Queen Kendall Jenner.
