It’s unfortunate that Ellie Goulding is so fucked-up looking because she’s?actually quite?talented. I don’t care for her music, but I can appreciate that she has something there, and it’s?disappointing to match her music with her image.
Currently touring the world to promote her recently-released second album, Halcyon, she appears to be enjoying her success the way a 25-year old ought to … flaunting her bum in leather pants, dating DJ’s, and experimenting?with?hideous corn-rows in her hair. Cyberspace is flooded with photos of?her, many that she herself posts, but it’s tricky to find any?that are not stylized.
Presumably it’s an attempt to mask, as well as possible, her very weird jaw.?And it works, because she actually photographs very well, often resembling a prettier Sporty Spice/homelier Drew Barrymore. In the few casual shots available, Ellie Goulding without makeup actually looks fantastic.
An enthusiastic runner, the?above photo shows Ellie?in a shot sponsored by Nike. She is probably wearing some amount of makeup, but compared to her usual stagey look, she looks very natural. Her?skin looks amazing …?English pale but luminesce.
Ellie is known for inviting fans to run with her before shows, and the photo below is a shot of her with a lucky fan before?a performance at the Southampton Guildhall. She looks very fresh and pretty.?She’s undoubtedly getting paid by Nike to do the fan runs, but it’s still a nice idea. She’s an endearing performer and I do hope her looks don’t restrict her. As long as she doesn’t get fat too, she should be okay. Keep running.
