We were thrilled to see the enormously talented Ellie Goulding trying on a pair of our Derek Cardigan glasses. Her first song to become an international sensation was “Lights”, beginning in the UK in 2010, hitting the US Billboard Top 10 in 2011 and lasting on the Billboard 100 for over a year. Next came her infectious “Anything Can Happen” that was featured in the teaser trailers for the second season of Girls, and came from the album of the same name that debuted on the Billboard Top 10 in 2012. Ellie Goulding continues her popularity worldwide with her Halcyon Days tour, and when completed will be supporting Bruno Mars on his Moonshine Jungle World Tour this year.
Inspired by Ellie Goulding’s fearless experimentation with style, we paired some of our favorite looks with Derek Cardigan glasses that she could swap in to suit her many sartorial moods.
Ellie Goulding highlights her edgy, risk-taker style while out on the town wearing a motorcycle jacket, high waisted leather pants and platform boots and hair swept aside to reveal shaved sides. Derek Cardigan 7026 Black frames would provide a great eyewear accessory for her overall look with its thick browline for a bold retro feel.
We were inspired by Ellie Goulding’s softer style approach as a guest at a Burberry Prorsum show. Her classic belted trench coat is given a modern update with metallic detailing on the arms, and adds interest to her style with uniquely shaped high heels. This style, and Ellie’s soft pink hair, would be perfectly complimented with a pair of Derek Cardigan 7008 Birch glasses.
Ellie Goulding shows her refined taste on the red carpet in a stunning black and white column dress an upswept hair. Derek Cardigan 7015 Dark Fade glasses have a translucent ombre design that would pair nicely with the gossamer neckline of the gown.
