Elen Rivas: From WAG To Wild And Stylish Senorita

Two weeks after running the Virgin London Marathon, Frank Lampard’s ex Elen Rivas is still glowing.

Elen, originally from Barcelona, pulls of a saucy senorita look at SHE magazine’s Inspiring Women of The Year awards.

With a red flower in her hair and bright red lipstick, Elen looks fiery and she was in an upbeat and feisty mood when Very caught up with her before the awards.

She told Very: “I feel fit and happy. Life is good.”

We hear the former lingerie model, who wowed us on Marco Pierre White’s cooking show Marco’s Kitchen Burnout with her passionate attitude to food, has had several offers of work since doing the TV show.

While she has a while to go to be as high profile as Frank’s new girlfriend, One Show presenter Christine Bleakley, Elen has been asked to put her love for food in a book. Looks like it’s not just Gordon Ramsay who is the only marathon running chef!

And in a gorgeous floral print dress, we can safely say Elen is easier on the eye than Ramsay!

Copy her look with a strapless South floral print bandeau dress, just arrived at Very.

And if you want to make more of a statement then this Love Label floral zip-through dress looks blooming lovely

Elen knows that you need good shoes to finish the look and you can’t beat these Holly Willoughby Countess Satin Frill shoes which we discovered at Very

But as you can never trust the British weather you may need something to cover your shoulders, such as this Only knitted bolero

We look forward to seeing Elen on TV again very soon. Although she didn’t win an inspiring woman award, we’ve definitely taken notice of her fashion!
