Fashion / SOUND OFF: 6 QUESTIONS WITH ELLIE GOULDING
Ever since the electro-pop-ethereal-magic we call “Lights” first met our unexpecting ears, we’ve pretty much been in love with Ellie Goulding. Her unique voice and killer tracks bring a refreshing edge to pop music –executed with such brilliance that Prince William and Kate Middleton even asked her to perform at their wedding. We mean…seriously, does it get anymore glam? Between Ellie’s infectious sound and her effortless-cool-girl style, you can say that we were pretty much over-the-moon when she agreed not only to a little gab sesh, but a culling of fav F21 pieces for our Forever 21 magazine.
