Knock-out: Kelly Brook models her latest collection for high street store New Look

She has the kind of body that women envy and men desire. Kelly Brook's voluptuous figure achieves that aesthetic Holy Grail of being both slim and curvaceous - without the aid of cosmetic surgery.

And just in time for Valentines's day, Kelly has poured her passion for lingerie - and her enviable curves - into her latest lingerie line for high street store New Look.

The vintage-inspired collection features delicate lace-trimmed bras, high-waisted knickers and suspender belts, all in baby soft pastel tones of the palest blush or floral pinks.

And according to Kelly's Twitter feed, the collection is selling well. 'New Look Lingerie Sales up 18% Great news thank you everyone,' she wrote earlier today.

Kelly explains that all the lingerie from her collection enhances girls' curves, rather than attempting to slim them down.

'I don't like minimiser bras,' she said in an interview with Now magazine. 'I think girls should embrace their curves - push 'em up! Lacy French knickers that accentuate your waist flatter us curvy girls.'

'I have the whole collection I've designed for New Look too - it's so comfortable to wear and looks super-sexy.'

Clearly something of an enthusiast, Kelly, who has just returned from a beach holiday in Brazil where she showcased many of her bikini designs for New Look, also revealed that she has collected Agent Provocateur underwear since she was 19, wears Victoria Secret bras, and boasts a colourful array of Costella thongs.

The 34E model, who has previously posed for Michelle Mone's lingerie brand Ultimo, confessed that like screen siren Marilyn Monroe, she prefers to sleep without pyjamas, wearing only a spritz of her own signature scent, Fracas.

In the winter, she says she she might sneak on a pair of her boyfriend Thom Evans' socks, but for lounging Jack Wills pyjamas are hard to beat.

As for how she maintains that knock-out figure, Kelly says it's simple. She explained: 'My regime is: walk everywhere, have regular steam room sessions to get rid of toxins and find a good water. And plenty of sex - it's a great cardio workout!'

'My secret to instant sex appeal is confidence and being with someone who makes you feel like you're the only girl in the world,' she added.

'I can't bear the fact that girls these days think you have to be thin to be beautiful and successful,' she says.

'I'm not thin. I don't starve myself. I don't look at my face and body and think I need surgery or a boob job or a bum lift.

'It makes me very angry when women in the public eye talk about what work they've had done, because it makes other women feel devalued.
