Interview: Sophie Ellis Bextor Talks Shopping

Sophie Ellis Bextor is back for another assault on the charts with more experience and a cooler sense of style.

The pretty daughter of Blue Peter presenter Janet Ellis had chart success the first time round when her Spiller single If This Aint Love beat Victoria Beckham to the top of the UK singles chart.

And recently the mother of two’s  single Not Giving Up On Love with trance DJ Armin Van Buuren had top 10s in Poland and the Netherlands.

But she exclusively revealed to Very her dream was to have another number one in the UK.

She said she hoped she could achieve that by collaborating with another DJ and she is getting lots of her own DJ experience by hosting club nights around the world with her husband Richard Jones from indie band The Feeling.

The cute couple DJ under the name ‘Mr and Mrs Jones’. Bless!

This time round, Sophie’s shelved her pop style dresses for a more chic, experimental look and it really suits her.

We loved the bright clothes she wore to DJ at a London party so much that we had to ask her where she shops. Watch the exclusive video here

It’s refreshing to hear that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on designer outfits to look as stunning as Sophie.

In fact, if you want a bright look like hers you can easily steal her style with outfits from Very.

Check out the Motel printed bandeau dress, which is just £28

Or get all ship shape in the Forever Unique stripe bandeau dress

For a real number one outfit that’s both stripey and colourful the POP by POP by PPQ javed striped jersey dress is just £40

Team it with an equally bright jacket like the Love Label printed shrug

Or go for colours and spring’s ultimate trend – florals – with the Love Label floral print kimono jacket

DJ-ing isn’t the only thing Sophie’s working on right now. In June she’s the support act for Erasure’s UK tour.

Let’s hope the hard work pays off and she gets her number one very soon.

The song isn’t forgettable at all. It’s just an adiotidn to one of her long list of amazing songs. Yes, the thing with Sophie is that she hasn’t had a hit since Catch You and that was more than 3 years ago, so everything seems like a come-back single to some people. But it’s not. She never really goes away. Her usual time-gap between albums is 2-3 years. If she takes any longer, then you can call it going away . So far, she has had a couple of releases coming out one after the other.June 09 Heartbreak Make Me A Dancer (part of the 4th album)Feb 10 Can’t Fight This Feeling (part of the 4th album)May 10 Bittersweet (lead single of the 4th album)Aug 10 Not Giving Up On Love(part of the 4th album)She’ll have her second solo single soon and her album following that in October. This project has releases by DJ’s featuring Sophie.. She didn’t really go away. Can’t Fight This Feeling was released in France and some parts of Europe and it’s doing fairly well everywhere. Look up wiki for it’s charting. It will be released in the UK sometime during the course of the album.
