STYLE WARS; Made In Chelsea rivals give us low-down on how to get Jacket -PSblouse -PSTrousers PS45, Wallis THE look for this season.

Byline: Demelza de Burca

IT'S handbags at dawn on Made In Chelsea with Lucy Watson and Louise Thompson at each other's throats.

To boM But the beauties - who were both brutally cheated on by on-screen love rat Spencer Matthews - have more in common than just hair colour and bad taste in men.

th in The posh pair both have a flair for fashion, and with co-star Millie Mackintosh bowing out this season, these two are easily the most stylish stars on screen right now.

Lucy and Louise may not always get their relationships right, but one thing these Chelsea gals have got down to a tee are their sartorial choices.

We take a fashionable foxtrot into the covetable wardrobes of our two new style crushes and how to get the look.

Trust us, it's less Kings Road and more affordable High Street.

FIESTY Lucy joined MIC last year and immediately ruffled feathers with her 'take me as I am' attitude.

Despite the 23-year-old's best efforts, she fell for bad boy Spencer after he whisked her off to Paris for a romantic first date.

But the sexy star was left heartbroken after Spanner, we mean Spenny, admitted being unfaithful just 72 hours into their romance.

Currently single, we're sure the Lucy has some tricks up her sleeve to spice up season six of the popular show, kicking off with her killer wardrobe.

Earlier this year fashionable Lucy, from Fulham, replaced arch rival Louise as the face of fashion brand Gorgeous Couture and last month was announced as the new face of womenswear brand Vesper.

She cites the Olsen twins as her style icons and Zara and All Saints as her favourite places to shop.

She said: "Office and Dune do good shoes, River Island has a great collection at the moment and I like Topshop too. There are so many! It's a lot to do with the material and the quality. Many high street brands copy designers and if it looks good then it doesn't matter where it's from. ear FASHIONable m, replaced arch the face of d Gorgeous st month was as as he new face of of of of and Vesper.

It has everything and there is a massive Zara which has new stuff all the time.

"The only problem with Zara is all of my friends will probably end up with the same thing!" What key pieces make up a Chelsea girl's outfit? Lucy explained: "A really nice tailored jacket, and a plain shirt buttoned to the top with a statement necklace. I always wear a shoe with a heel, even if it's just a small heel, it makes an outfit look that little bit better. It's tricky though because all the guys on the show are so short, if you wear heels you look like a giant! Add some nice fitted trousers or jeans and I'd throw in a hat - I like bowler hats."

She added: "I don't really wear designer. I do love Stella McCartney though. I would only ever spend that much money on a nice handbag or a jacket, but not on day-to-day clothing because my wardrobe changes all the time.

"I have a Prada handbag which I love, and I've just bought a really nice orange bag by Miu Miu. I decided to stop buying designer handbags from places that use real leather because I've learnt about what goes on behind the scenes with the animals.

TEARY Louise Thompson has spent the majority of the last and the current series of Made In Chelsea with her eyes full to the brim.

But the pretty pint-sized brunette has been at the centre of all the hottest MIC storylines with her on/off relationships with Andy Jordan and Spencer Matthews.

And Louise, who stripped off for FHM magazine earlier this year, was even wrongly rumoured to have spent a night with 1D's Niall Horan.

With Lucy Watson robbing both her man and Gorgeous Couture gig, Louise dipped her toe into design this year and created a denim line called Pocket London with business partner Edward Page.

"My style varies from day to day - it's usually influenced by how I'm feeling. I love getting dressed up for an event or party but at the same time I could live in my over-sized jumpers that I can relax in.

"Within my absolute capsule wardrobe I'd definitely have my Isabel Marant wedge trainers - they're so practical when I'm running around going to meetings and at the same time they give me that extra bit of height during the day.

"I'd also have some Pocket London jeans, a Celine T-shirt and a statement necklace from Mawi for a more causal style. I'd definitely ensure there was a killer pair of heels by Charlotte Olympia (nothing less than six inches) and a LBD from Topshop so I'd have an outfit if heading out in the evening."
