Love Island beauty Kendall Rae Knight may have been the first contestant to be eliminated from the ITV2 dating show this year, but she was all smiles as she attended a launch event and birthday bash in Manchester.
Blackpool beauty Kendall looked stunning in a sophisticated mini dress with sheer sleeves and a square neckline as she stepped out at the launch of a new eyelash range by celebrity makeup artist Sean Maloney.
Sporting a glowing tan following her time in Mallorca she teamed her figure-hugging black dress with a Gucci bag as she joined her friend for his big night.
More than 400 guests flocked to Neighbourhood restaurant and bar at Spinningfields to toast the first birthday of Sean Maloney Eyelashes and the launch of his new Nude Couture range following the success of Sean’s debut collection which sold out within 10 minutes.
Guests enjoyed Neighbourhood signature cocktails at their weekly Not Going Home event.
Since leaving the Love Island villa, Kendall has been linked to last year’s winner Kem Cetinay, who found romance on the reality show with Amber Davies, although Kem has insisted that he and Kendall are just friends.
At the launch Kendall was staying tight-lipped on the subject of her relationship with Kem, but she says she’s been tuning in to Love Island to keep up with the antics of her fellow Islanders.
She said: “I am enjoying my time out of the villa so much, I have lots in the pipeline and still watch the show every night to keep up with the gossip.”
Kendall, who appeared to struggle on Love Island after splitting from a man she was engaged to last year, hit it off with hunky personal trainer Adam Collard, but viewers were left stunned when he dumped her and didn’t waste much time getting together with Manchester-based solicitor Rosie Williams.
