Rachel Stevens the face of Next 'Petites'

Former S Club Seven star Rachel Stevens is to become the first celebrity face of the Next 'Petites' range.

Launching this month, her images will be featured in all 550 stores nationwide and in the stores home shopping publication; the Next Directory. Her face – and enviable figure - will also feature on Next online, which is the biggest fashion e-tailor in Europe. Rachel, 34, epitomises the smaller customer at just 5ft 1 and a size 6-8.

She said; “Being petite, I’ve always found it tricky to find clothes to fit well.The attention to detail in the cut is very important to ensure that clothes for smaller women are still very tailored. It’s great to be modelling for Next as the Petites range has been designed specifically with this in mind. They have a huge choice in the range, which means that I don’t miss out on the latest fashion because of my size.”

Next said: “We are proud of our extensive petites range which is cut to perfect proportions for the smaller frame, and, we all agreed that with her diverse appeal, healthy figure and stunning features, Rachel Stevens would be the ideal choice as the face of Next Petites.”

Petite sizes range from 6-18 to fit heights 4' 11" - 5' 3".
