Even when running through a construction site, dodging sparks or jumping over cement blocks, Ellie Goulding fails to look anything but beautiful, graceful and downright ice-cool. The 27-year-old singer, famous for her hit songs ‘Burn’ and ‘Lights’ among others, has teamed up with sports giant Nike for a new advertisement filmed on the streets of London.
The advert sees Ellie outfitted in a bright neon pink top, a pair of snazzy black snakeskin print leggings and topping it off with a pair of rose and teal coloured Women’s Nike Flyknit Lunar 2 trainers. Always one to be ahead of the trend, Ellie, along with fellow starlets Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham, is one of the fashion icons fore fronting the return of animal print, as heralded here on Peter Hahn’s blog.
In the advert, we witness Miss Goulding jogging through a quiet street when suddenly faced by building works before her path. Not one to be phased, the starlet channels her inner Amazonian and leaps over fences, scrambles over iron bars and even handstands a barrier for good measure, before safely landing on the road to continue her morning run.
Looking undeniably gorgeous as always, Ellie is not just a fashion icon, but a positive role model for girls across the world. Preferring to be seen hitting the pavement rather, than hitting the bottle like a lot of today’s pop stars, the blonde bombshell even ran 13.1 miles in less than two hours for the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in London earlier in the month. Be sure to keep an ear out for Ellie, who will feature on an up coming track from Iggy Azalea.
In a recent interview with SELF magazine, Ellie spoke of her love of keeping fit within her life. “My training is part of my life. It’s something I need to do every day, because it affects my mood, my fitness…even my mind-set onstage,” she said. “I get the biggest high when I do yoga. People don’t realise that there’s such an incredible drug in life that doesn’t involve any substances.”
