Daily Style Phile: Ellie Goulding, Royally Charming

by Maggie McGlinchy · May 6, 2011

Ellie Goulding is feminine, charming, and oh so cute. But if you don't take our word for it, take Prince William's: Ellie recently sang at the Royal Wedding reception. Although she has not made her mark in the states just yet, the U.K. is absolutely smitten.

The Bio:

24 years old

From Hereford, England

Full Name: Elena Jane Goulding

Got her start from (where else?) MySpace.



The Story:

Although the self-taught artist knew she loved performing at a young age, it was not until her college years that Ellie Goulding mustered up the courage to perform in front of a crowd. Once her MySpace page was sent to Fin Dow-Smith, their collaboration got Goulding recognition from label companies. Since then her album has reached number one on the British charts and she now has a BRIT award under her belt.
