Ellie Goulding is a lot of fun. In fact, she's so much fun that this piece nearly didn't make it up here - listening back, our chat became largely indecipherable as we both got carried away with our Mulberry-infused girlie excitement (which doesn't translate half as well when sober, unfortunately).
With a mischievious glint in her eye and very edgy bleached hair, Goulding looks like a little ethereal pixie (in a good way!) So, being a sucker for a girl with an unusual style, I had to have a quick chin-wag with Ellie about all things fash:
Who’s your style inspiration?
Oh my goodness! I can’t think of my style icon! Actually, do you know who I really love? Chloe Sevigny. I love everything she wears. And like, she’s kind of like me, she’s not like, like supermodel, but I don’t know, she seems to always pull it off.
Do you like her line for Opening Ceremony then, have you ever bought anything from there?
No, I haven’t, but my stylist Lauren is here and she is like The One. She’s introduced me to trendy things, she’s amazing.
What’s the kind of look that you’re going for on your tour at the moment?
Every night I wear this Temperley jacket, it’s like a military jacket, and I kind of feel a bit powerful in it, so I’ve been really going for the military vibe.

('Mulberry, Mulberry!' shouts her stylist) Yes, Mulberry. Antipodium. I like Temperley, as I said before, really loving Temperley. Was it Antipodium who did the hands top? That's really cool.

And what’s been your fashion highlight this year?Wearing that Antipodium hands top was a highlight. And last night, I was at a film premier and I wore a D&G suit and it was amazing.
