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.
