The original breathy songstress Ellie Goulding was out in LA this week at The Clive Davis and Recording Academy Pre-Grammy Gala, looking wondrous in white, and Team LBD are keen to steal her ethereal style. Quite a change from some of her stage looks involving leather hot pants and creepers, Ellie was the height of elegance in this white maxi dress; and yet her simple style is deceptively detailed. Two hot trends were incorporated into this evening gown with lace shoulders and subtle splits revealing a flash of skin. To have a go at Ellie’s ingénue image, Team LBD suggest this silver Elliot Claire evening gown worn with unusual accessories. While the look borders on bridal, we think why the hell not!? Even so, a good pair of shoe boots are a glamorous alternate that leave ‘blushing bride’ far behind. Elliot Claire Silver Sweetheart Diamond Pleated Evening Dress, £260, Moda in Pelle Zenda Shoe Boot Jet Black, £129.95, Rachel Black Millinery Butterfly Hair Clip in Geisha Print, £17.
