Goulding's androgynous look

Ellie Goulding prides herself on her tomboy style.

The 27-year-old singer enjoys wearing skirts and dresses at times, but her day-to-day look isn't so feminine. For her, style is about mixing and matching which is why she does things like have long blonde hair which is partly shaved.

"My look is quite tomboy - I like dressing like a boy. I also love really beautiful stunning dresses. And being quite girlie with my hair, but androgynous too," she told Look magazine.

Despite her claim, Ellie has previously called her radical hair look one of the biggest style mistakes she's ever made. Although she initially liked her short look, she eventually realised she was just trying to be rebellious and preferred her hair all one length.

The British musician prides herself on her healthy lifestyle and has admitted in the past that she is ashamed of some of the things she has put her body through. She didn't eat properly when she was younger and used to cram herself full of junk food. She is now more careful about her diet and has become more comfortable in her skin as a result.

"I went through a time of being quite insecure. I didn't like my figure and [thought I] had a big nose. Now I've finally got to a place where I don't focus on those things," she's previously said.

The star certainly seemed confident with her body at the Elle Style Awards this week, where she wore a black Matthew Williamson jumpsuit which boasted mesh panels down the sides.
