Instead of driving around in a Bentley or Ferrari – or even having a driver – The Saturdays singer has got herself a cute set of Nissan Figaro wheels.

The blonde Sienna Miller lookalike was seen enjoying a spot of retail therapy, visiting the Ralph Lauren store before filling her boot with treats.

Dressed casually in skinny jeans and a faded pale blue denim shirt, Mollie still looked slick in her day clothes.

large brown leather handbag.
