Ellie Goulding: Restyled.



Ellie Goulding is tipped to be a pretty big deal this year, and I can't get her song 'Starry Eyed' out of my head! I do have a weakness for an over-produced and slightly Icelandic-sounding vocal (though she's actually from Hereford!)

One thing bugs me about Ellie, but it's not her fault...

For a hot young singer/songwriter that NME are drooling all over, you'd think her record label would put more effort into her image. I'm not being bitchy when I say that, but you can see from pictures on her Myspace that she obviously has a bangin' bod, but in both of her music videos, she has been styled in the most unflattering (and unappealing) outfits ever.



I was reading an interview with her in Company magazine on the train earlier and she says she's only a size 8-10. But in her videos she looks bigger due to bad clothing choices. She's on a major label which means she'll have no control over her image. With her distinctive sound, if the label gave her the right image (I'm not saying that's a Little Boots full on fashion affair, but there's a way to look 'different' without looking frumpy), she could be a style icon. She's extremely gorgeous and talented so she'll obviously be successful, but a new stylist certainly wouldn't hurt her chances...




Here's the kind of looks I'd put Ellie in if I was her stylist... (enlarge for better view!)

Ellie Goulding Re-brand!


Ellie's label, sort it out, please! There's a stylish badass waiting to get out!

Hope you lot have a lovely Friday night and aren't stuck in doing housework like me. Well I'm about to do housework... Polyvore seems to have made 2 hours disappear into thin air!



PS - Change of plan with the winner of my Valentine's comp. The original winner didn't get back to me, so my NEW Valentine is Gemma from Retro Chick! Congrats, Gemma, and GREAT name if I may say so myself. Ha!

  1. excellent post, i feel the same, that her attire is lacking originality and personal comofort.
    although i hate record labels controlling their artist's style if they've got the money, they should spend it wisely! :)

    i'm going to see Ellie Goulding in April, hopefully she'll be looking great :D

    i absolutely love your blog xxx

  7. I totally agree - obviously she's beautiful, but her clothes totally make her look frumpy.

    Go you.

  8. I totally agree. Obviously, she's beautiful, but she does look pretty frumpy in those videos. New clothes would definately help.

    Starry Eyeed is the worst I think - she looks like she's got a buda belly!

    Poor, gorgeous, lovely Ellie! Sack the fashion aid hon'!

  9. I disagree, I think the way Ellie dresses is what makes her unique. Yeah some people may not like HER style and yes a stylist could make her look even more amazing (yes the clothes are extremely cute!) But, Ellie is Ellie, don't change someone just because you think they can look better. I think Ellie is beautiful the way she is. :)
