Kimberley Garner shows off her bikini body!

She’s the willowy blonde who shot to fame on Made In Chelsea.   But away from the bitching and backstabbing of the E4 reality show, Kimberley Garner has been working on a new project – her own range of swimwear.

From tiny monokinis to even smaller Brazilian style bikinis, Kimberley has been working on the Kimberley London line for the past few months to perfect her designs.   But while she has only been seeing the dream become a reality over the past few weeks, she insists that she has had the ideas for the range since the tender age of nine.   ‘I’ve been working on this range since 1st January but I’ve had the ideas since I was a child and I got told off for sewing sequins onto a bikini while I was in school!’

And Kimberley has certainly pulled out all the stops to ensure that her range is a success – from funding it herself to the fact the designs are made in England, to the fabric imported from Italy and the tiny gold coin and ‘K’ details made in France.   She said of the range: ‘I wanted to make my designs wholesome but also sexy and cheeky, and provide an aspirational image for young girls.’   The reality star has also ensured the swimwear is affordable, with the £65 price tag sitting somewhere between high-street prices and designer.

She said: ‘Melissa Odabash’s bikinis cost around £200 so I wanted to keep the price down on my designs.’   But Kimberley’s comment about pricing comes after Melissa’s recent comment slating the young star for daring to design her own swimwear collection with no experience.

However, Kimberley is fully aware of the hard work that designing swimwear requires, having given up all of her free time over the past five months to dedicate herself to making her new business perfect.   She said: ‘I haven’t seen a weekend for months. This is my baby and I’m doing everything I can to make it a success.’   Kimberley’s designs can be purchased from her website Kimberleylondon.com

Rachel Bilson romantic Barbados Holiday!

Their choppy relationship has been on and off for six years, but Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen have now reached calm waters.

The pair looked a picture of bliss as they enjoyed a sunshine break in Barbados on Saturday. The 31-year-old, who found fame in The OC, wore a tiny floral bikini for their day at the beach.

The couple have been on the island for several days – tan marks from a bandeau bikini and her pink skin suggested she’d been soaking up a lot of sun during their stay.

The itsy bitsy bikini allowed the Heart Of Dixie actress to flaunt her fabulous body.   Wearing no make-up and her wet hair messily tied back, Rachel showed off her natural beauty as she splashed around with her beau.

Rachel was quick to immerse herself in the tropical waters holding her sunglasses a loft as she dunked her head underwater.   When not in the water, the actress made sure to protect her face by wearing a large straw visor.   Boyfriend Hayden also tried to soak up some sun wearing no shirt and a bright pair of boardshorts.

The Star Wars actor seemed to be struggling to relax, going for a solo snorkel before convincing Rachel to come with him on an inflatable chair ride.   Joined by some friends, the pair looked like they were having a blast as the boat pulled them around.   Back on dry land Hayden made sure to be a gentleman and helping his partner out of the water, tenderly holding her hand.

After all their activities, the couple got down to the serious business of snuggling.   The pair – who met on the set of Jumper in 2007 – shared a kiss as they stood on the shore enjoying the view.   The pair were due to marry in 2010, but called off their engagement before later reconcilling.

However, the sound of the pitter patter of small feet may soon be in the couple’s lives.

Putting his toned petite physique on show, Marcus appeared to be in high spirits as he embraced the lovely weather.

Shielding his eyes from the glare of the sun, Collins matched his black Ray-Ban sunglasses to Heath’s wayfarers as they enjoyed one another’s company.

Taking a seat underneath some palm trees, Marcus and David, who split last February, were seen popping open a bottle of champagne as they toasted to the good life.

Proud of his ripped abdomen, last Saturday the Liverpudlian took to his Twitter account to post an image of himself in his Baywatch-esq trunks.

Not one to hold back on personal compliments, Collins referred to himself as Barbie’s better half Ken as he stood pouting in front of a mirror.

The caption on the image read: ‘Malibu ken off to swim with turtles! Haha have a great day! Bye tweeps x’.   Now that his sunshine break to Barbados is over, Marcus is back under the spotlight as he plays the role of Seaweed Stubbs in Hairspray: The UK Tour.

Opening up about his anxiety regarding the live shows, Collins admitted that he was ‘very apprehensive’ but ‘excited’ at the same time.

He told Liverpool Echo: ‘I’m very apprehensive about it, I imagine the first couple of months  I’ll be running straight to bed and will only be getting up to go to work because I’m going to be that tired.

‘But I’m really excited. It’s something new for me and I believe in progressing as an artist, I believe in challenging yourself.’
