Denise Does Dubai

Check out West End Star and yummy mummy Denise van Outen taking time out of her hectic schedule for a realxing break in Dubai earlier this week. Wearing one of our favourites, the Martiniquestyle bikini in multi paisley print, Denise showed off her fabulous figure just a year after baby Betsy was born. She didn't get much time to relax, jetting back to the UK after four days to begin rehearsals of Legally Blonde: The Musical with none other than her husband Lee Mead, who is joining the cast in the summer.

Get Denise's look! Our Martinique is available online at or at our Notting Hill boutique.

Odabash Street Style

While its always exciting to open up one of the glossies and find one of our pieces used in a shoot on some ultra glamorous model in a super exotic location, or catch wind of one of our favourite celebrities spotted enjoying some down time at the beach wearing Odabash (and trust us, we get VERY excited!), recently we have been seeing Melissa Odabash pieces styled in a way we would never have thought of in a million years...

Street style blogs have taken off in a huge way this past couple of years, with Scott Schulman (aka The Sartorialist), Tommy Ton of Jak & Jil photographing people with great style (be they in the fashion industry or not) and sites like and of course, showcasing pretty young things unique looks, much like an online diary of 'what I wore today'.

Above is our favourite of the day - Yu'An from London, wearing a Melissa Odabash swimsuit in Notting Hill. We love the way she has put this look together, with some cool layering, quirky accessories and plenty of confidence. Its also a great way to show off your Odabash piece, as lets face it, here in the UK we don't get too much of a chance to don our swimwear now do we!

If you have an interesting way of styling up one of our garments, we would LOVE to hear from you, or better still send us a picture to

As Will Smith once said...

...we're going to Miami!

Or rather, Odabash favourite Alexandra Burke is, seen here soaking up the sun on holiday after completing her first headline tour of the UK. Alexandra seemed relaxed and in the mood for fun, having played in the sand with friends...before they buried her in it...and chatted to Vanessa of girl-group The Saturdays, also living it up on the east coast.

Alexandra looked great while wearing a whole range of Melissa Odabash spring/summer 2011 pieces, from the bejewelled Capri cut out swimsuit, to our uber-cool natural stetson - she obviously knows a thing or two about staying safe in the sun!

Gwyneth gets Gooped!

Another shot of a lucky celebrity frolicking on the beach while we wait patiently (or not so!) for the summer - this time the gorgeous Gwyneth Paltrow, seen above taking a walk along a Caribbean shore where she holidayed with her family, wearing - you guessed it - a Melissa Odabash bikini!

Taking a welll earned rest after finishing her guest appearances in Glee, Gwynth showed off her amazing new Goop-honed figure.

And while we're not too keen on the sound of vegan, gluten-free, soy-free doughnuts, if it means we end up with a body like this, we might just be tempted to put down the chocolate cake!

SPOTTED...Elle Macpherson sports Melissa Odabash Down Under

While we here at Odabash have had day after day of dreary weather to contend with, the stunning Elle Macpherson was spotted Down Under, enjoying the sunshine aboard a yacht in Sydney Harbour. And her chosen swimwear? None other than Melissa Odabash.
Sporting a white bikini, white maxi dress and a straw stetson, Elle looked relaxed and happy, enjoying the odd glass of champagne or two, after a day of modelling in her home town.

But it isn't just Elle who is a fan of Odabash swimwear - her eight year old son Cy was also seen rocking the stetson, and a dog on board the luxury yacht was keen to have a look at her ensemble.

Elle's swimwear and accesories are available online at www.odabash .com, or in our Notting Hill shop, so start planning your holiday wardrobe now - summer isn't far off, we promise!
