One week before the debut of their very first album, our favorite British girl group, Little Mix, is gracing the cover of Seventeen magazine.
Wearing black-and-white outfits with '90s-inspired platform shoes, Jade, Jesy, Perrie and Leigh-Anne share their love for the Spice Girls, which boy band they go to for advice and their fashion tips in the June/July issue of the magazine. Scroll down to see their cover photo.
"When we met the Spice Girls, Emma Bunton told us to keep being friends because that’s the connection fans love you for," Jade said.
The boys of One Direction also had some words of wisdom to share with the foursome. Like Little Mix, 1D were on "The X Factor UK" and had already established themselves as a popular boy band in Britain before they began to win over fans in the U.S.
"I asked the boys from One Direction how to make it in America and they basically said: ‘be yourself and you can’t go wrong,'" Leigh-Anne said. "People know when you’re trying to be someone you’re not. Just be true to who you are.’ So that’s what we’ve been doing!"
In addition to the magazine cover, Little Mix premiered a new web series with Seventeen called "Seventeen Style Diaries with Little Mix." Every Thursday, starting May 23, there will be a new video uploaded on YouTube about all-things Little Mix, beauty and style. Check out the video above to watch the girls talk about their fashion inspiration in the first episode.
