Tamara Ecclestone quits as the boss of her beauty

Bernie Ecclestone’s pampered daughters, Tamara and Petra, stand to inherit the Formula 1 boss’s billions someday, but it seems the girls haven’t inherited their father’s head for business.

Just months after I reported Petra, 27, had put her handbag line Stark ‘on hold’ for the foreseeable future after amassing millions of pounds worth of debts, her elder sister Tamara has apparently offloaded responsibility for her own venture, a haircare label called SHOW Beauty, less than three years after launching it.

When Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas landed a plum role in movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s film Tulip Fever 18 months ago, it was heralded as the part that would launch her budding acting career

Billed as 31-year-old Tamara’s first solo enterprise, SHOW Beauty, which is sold in Harrods and Harvey Nichols, among other locations, boasts ‘indulgent and luxurious’ products including a £30 dry shampoo, a £55 hair fragrance and a Swarovski-encrusted bottle of treatment oil costing an eye-watering £155.

Her previous ventures have included a Channel 5 reality show called Billion $ Girl and posing nude for Playboy magazine with just a smattering of diamonds to protect her modesty.

The last available accounts for Tamara Ecclestone Brands Ltd, which trades as SHOW Beauty, reveal that in the year ending 2013 the company owed creditors over £10 million, up from £2.6 million the previous year.

According to Companies House, the latest set of accounts are overdue by four months.

Earlier this year Tamara, who lives in a £70 million house in West London with her husband Jay Rutland, resigned as a sole director and transferred the company’s entire £15 million share capital to a Mauritius-based entity called Mighty Kingdom Investments Ltd.

Yet Tamara still promotes SHOW Beauty on social media and in interviews, where she describes herself as ‘creative director’.

Her spokeswoman says: ‘There has been a corporate restructure. The current accounts, working their way through Companies House, show a £1.9 million profit for the year.

Tamara Ecclestone will continue to be involved with the SHOW Beauty brand.’

Having been a bridesmaid at Charles and Diana’s wedding, designer India Hicks knows all about parties.

But she reveals that while preparing for son Domino’s eighth birthday last week: ‘I did not pay enough attention to the cake, which was meant to be the number eight but looked like two inappropriate boobs.’

It's Christmas Eve--Do You Know Where Your Wedding Proposal Is?

So purrs Eartha Kitt in the Christmas classic, “Santa Baby.” She’s not alone; according to surveys Christmas Eve bests Valentine’s Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve as the most popular day to propose.

Good news to those about to get betrothed: Men are spending more on their engagement rings, according to The Knot 2015 Jewelry & Engagement Study. This is the online wedding resource’s third biannual comprehensive proposal trends report. More than 12,000 and 1,200 American brides and grooms, respectively, engaged or recently married from 2014 to early 2015 were surveyed as to their spending habits.

Men are spending an average of $5,978, up from $5,403 in 2013 and $5,095 in 2011. They’re also revealing the cost to their significant other; nearly 70 percent of women know how much their intended spent on the ring, while one-third have a general idea. Another third indicate they know exactly how much was paid.

They know because they are putting in the research and making their engagement ring preferences known. Sixty-seven percent of brides began researching rings before getting engaged, The Knot survey finds. They are using their mobile devices to browse ring styles (43 percent), sharing ring ideas with their fiancé (35 percent) and researching ring designers or retailers (29 percent). Eighty percent of men said their partner dropped hints, and 71 percent of women owned up to it. Of the hints they dropped, half of the surveyed women pointed out styles while shopping, 36 percent told their significant other outright what they wanted and 11 percent left ads or pictures laying around, just like Ralphie, the boy in A Christmas Story” who wanted the Red Ryder BB gun..

Men are not just spending more on the engagement ring, they are also putting in the time to make the right choice. Surveyed grooms reported it took an average of about five months to research and almost 4 to find the perfect engagement ring. They also visited five retailers and looked at an average of 25 rings before purchasing “the one.”

Almost nine-in-ten men indicated they would rather buy a smaller, better quality diamond than a larger stone of lesser quality. Almost 60 percent of brides said they were on board with that.

The ring was a piece of cake; now the tricky bit—the proposal. Public proposals are on the rise, The Knot reports, with 45 percent of grooms proposing in a public place, up from 34 percent four years ago. Twenty-eight percent opted to propose in a scenic spot, compared with 21 percent who proposed at home and 18 percent who popped the question on vacation. Forty percent of brides did not see their proposal coming, while about 60 percent said they knew it was in the works, but weren’t exactly sure when it would happen.

A public proposal calls for public sharing. Four-in-ten grooms had a photographer or videographer capture the proposal as it happened. Once engaged, 79 percent of couples shared the news on social media within three days.

he's been showing off her enviable bikini collection all week.

And on Tuesday Lauren Silverman proved that her gorgeous beach wardrobe extends to pretty cover-ups too as she wowed in a print maxi dress during another day in paradise.

Simon Cowell's girlfriend turned heads in he summery number as she hit the beach in Barbados with the couple's son 21-month-old Eric and her eldest, Adam, nine.

Lauren, 38, may have covered up in her dress for the beach day, but she still showed a glimpse of her amazing figure with the maxi's thigh-high split.

Her toned and tanned legs were on full display as the doting mum strolled barefoot on the beach with Eric in her arms.

Her pink and white dress was teamed with a chic hat and dark shades, with the star pulling her long locks back into a ponytail.

Lauren flashed a big smile as she spent time with her two sons.

Little Eric was seen having fun on the golden sands as he built sandcastles.

With a little help from his nanny, the tot had a look of pure concentration on his face as he set to work on construction before placing his toys on top of the completed masterpieces.

Lauren and Simon's son was dressed for the warm weather in blue shorts and a white sun hat to keep cool.

Eric didn't seem too keen on leaving the beach though as Lauren was later seen wrapping her son in a towel as he struggled to hold back the tears.

Lauren has been holidaying with her boys and partner Simon, who she's been with since 2013, for the past week, returning to their favourite spot in Barbados.

Also on holiday with the family has been Sinitta, who brought along her children and boyfriend Jason Gale along for the festivities.

The traditional winter getaway usually attracts a host of large names, with Tulisa, Sarah-Jane Crawford and Union J all jetting to the Caribbean last year for Simon's New Year's Eve bash.

This year Olly Murs is set to be one of the star's making the trip, with The Mirror reporting that The X Factor host is looking forward to a 'lads on tour' vibe.

Phillip Green and his family have also been spotted holidaying on the beautiful island for their annual festivities.

Sinitta has previously spoken about her evenings spent at Sir Phillip's parties during the celeb-packed trip. 'It's completely debauched,’ she confessed. ‘We all go to Sandy Lane as guests of Sir Philip and his family.

'It starts with all the men looking suave in suits, while all the ladies wear elegant dresses. But by the end of the night we all end up in the pool with our diamonds and champagne glasses and often not much else.'
