SINGING FOR HER SUPPER: Although recovering from a cold, British singer Pixie Lott was diligently rehearsing before the Cheap and Chic show under the tent set up outside the new Maison Moschino hotel in Milan. “I love fashion and music — they go hand in hand. You can express yourself with both,” said the artist, who was due to perform after the show on Thursday. Lott, who has worn Moschino on several occasions and defined the brand as “cute and classy,” has been dabbling with design herself, with a Pixie for Lipsy collection for Topshop, a dress with British designer Kate Halfpenny and a charity T-shirt with Moschino for the Perthes disease association. Lott is due to kick off her tour with Rihanna in May and her own later this year, but she’s got another engagement to attend to first. “I’m flying home tomorrow because I’m a bridesmaid at a family wedding and I’m expected to sing,” said Lott.
