Style Icon of the Week: Ellie Goulding

Hey there fashion lovers!
Hope you had a super duper weekend (although it went way too fast!). Today I’m going to be talking about the amazing Ellie Goulding. Born and raisied in England, Ellie set to lighting up the music world with her most successful album ‘Lights’ which debuted on the UK charts at number 1 and reached its peak on the US Billboard at number 2. Not only is Miss Goulding a singer/songwriter and multi instrumentalist – she’s also a pretty good fashionista! Hanging out with the likes of top model Cara Delevingne and fellow singer Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding still manages to stand out and look stunning. Take a look below at some of my favourite outfits of hers!

Ellie Goulding -obviously- rocks the ‘gig look’. After taking to the stage hundreds of times Ellie has become acustom to the perfect concert clothing. Wearing a pair of leather style shorts and a loose vest top Ellie makes sure to look both cool and casual. She sticks to her signature grungy style by teaming the black and navy outfit with a pair of ultra ultra great Dr Marten’s – did I mention her shoes were great?!

However Ellie can also glam it up as she’s seen here looking mighty fine on the red carpet. I love both the hair and the make-up she’s wearing. I’m also totally in love with the bodice (the top half) of her dress. The pattern is amazing and the sheer pieces of fabric add to the wow factor. If I’m completely honest I don’t like the bottom half of the garment. There’s nothing screaming ‘No it’s horrible!’ but that doesn’t make things right. Having the sheer fabric in a silvery tint would tie in better with the rest of the dress and would make it look more modern than it does.

Lastly is my absolute favourite outfit. Ellie Goulding looks stunning and almost unrecognisable in this beautiful dress. I love the colour of the dress- what looks to be a light lilac- and the sheer material on the bodice works wonders, yet again! Ellie looks like she could have just strolled off the set of ‘The Great Gatsby’. In particular the feathers at the bottom of the dress shine brightly – completely standing out. This must have been one expensive dress, but is worth every single penny. Ellie stuns in what I would go as far to say, is the perfect evening dress. One question though, how does she ever sit down?
