Elizabeth Hurley's fiancé Shane Warne contributes to her swimwear line.

The actress-and-model consults the Australian cricketer on her luxury beachwear collection and says he gives her confidence to model the line.

She told Britain's Hello! magazine: ''I always ask Shane for his opinion on the colours and prints and always take them on board. The first time I went to stay with him in Australia must have been an eye opener as I arrived with a suitcase of Lycra and silk swatches and covered his entire drawing room with them.''

Elizabeth, 47, added Shane is ''terrific'' at encouraging her to model the skimpy outfits herself.

She said: ''Shane is terrific at making me feel good about myself and is extremely supportive in every way.''

The 'Bedazzled' star feels her latest collection is bolder and has pieces for women of all shapes and sizes.

She said: ''We have used more prints and more bright colours in this collection. We've already virtually sold out of everything purple and our peacock print has also been a best seller. I'm in love with purple - whether it's in the home or in fashion - and am glad that others seem to agree.

''We have itsy-bitsy bikinis as well as great cover-ups and one-pieces. We're very mindful of the fact that most of us have areas we want to minimise, so we have plenty of kaftans and sarongs that cover your bottom, your arms and your tummy.''
