She’s already one of Britain’s most talked about reality stars.
But Lucy Mecklenburgh clearly can’t get enough of being in the spotlight, making sure that all eyes were on her for the opening of her newest Essex boutique.
The TV star looked casual but sophisticated for the launch of her second store, wearing a bright red peplum top.
Red alert: Lucy Mecklenburgh makes an impact in a bright red peplum top for the launch of her new boutique
Although she’s only 21-years-old, Lucy is already on her way to owning a business empire in the form of her fashion store Lucy’s Boutique, which has opened two outlets in just a few months.
Proving that she’s not just a pretty face, the business savvy star posed for photographs with the all-blonde staff of her latest venture.
Wearing exactly the same outfit as her store manager, she looked svelte and stylish in the flattering peplum top and skin-tight blue jeans.

To give the simple look some added edge, Lucy wore pair of show-stopping, over-the-knee boots, giving her a few extra inches in height.
She added a black hat and carried a small handbag, although she must have felt the cold with no jacket or scarf to keep out the winter weather.
Far from fresh-faced, the TOWIE star
wore a splash of bright red lipstick and heavy, false eyelashes, giving
her a glamourous look.
Here come the girls: Lucy and her team are set on expanding their Essex business empire
The boutique’s opening day must have gone well, as Lucy was soon on Twitter to thank her new team and tweet about the success:
‘Me & the @lucys_boutique Team! My opening today has been so successful 🙂 so happy all my hard work has paid off xxx,’ she wrote.
Former TOWIE star Maria Fowler was also out on Saturday, stopping by up-market restaurant Novikov with her mum.
She showed off her newly slim figure in a skin-tight green dress, paired with sparkling stilettos.
Amy Childs looked a little less sophisticated as she went out in a bright pink onesie.
