Sophie Ellis-Bextor Fashion Tips

What’s your personal style?
Feminine, colourful and cartoony.
Fashion tip you can’t live without?
Take risks. People take it all too seriously sometimes.
Who are your fashion icons?
My first doll—a Sindy; the cast of Mad Men; Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music; and the cast of Grease.
Is style overrated?
No, it’s showing the world that you know who you are. Being fashionable is overrated, though.
Are trendy men a turn off?
No, I love a smart man. My husband knows how to dress and I love it.
What’s more important to you: Music or fashion?
Music—no competition.
Famous last words.
Better to take a risk and get it wrong than play it safe and be overlooked.
