Interview: Peter Andre’s New Lady Elen Rivas

Ex WAG Elen Rivas may have lost Frank Lampard to Christine Bleakley but she’s found a gem of a man in Peter Andre.

The Insania singer is so smitten with her that he treated her to a spa break for her 36th birthday and threw a glamorous party at the luxury members club Shoreditch House in London.

Peter is always smiling when he’s with Elen – something that he didn’t do for a while immediately after he split from Jordan.

So what makes Elen so irrestible?

Very caught up with the  Dancing on Ice evictee for a light-hearted chat about fashion.

As you can see from the interview below, Elen is a laid-back ‘crazy’ lady even though she looked stunning at her party

QS: What was the last item you bought?

ELEN: Shoes! A girl can never have enough shoes. I have an addiction to high heels.

QS: How would you describe your style?

ELEN: I like dressing up. I am a girly girl. I like to wear pretty dresses and show that I am a woman.

But I am not normal when it comes to dresses. I go for individual, striking dresses and that means I get criticised a lot. And if there’s an excuse for fancy dress then I go crazy. I love Halloween.

QS: Do you look at any other celebrities for fashion inspiration?

ELEN: I always think Sarah Jessica Parker looks brilliant because she has her own individual style.

I think Katy Perry is interesting because like me, she is a bit crazy.

QS: Are you glamorous and crazy all the time?

ELEN: NO! I wear dresses for special occasions but I am a mum and I do the school run like other mums. I wear a tracksuit and UGG boots for that. That’s why I like making an effort at night

QS: What is the craziest thing you’ve worn?

ELEN: Recently I wore socks and sandals to the posh Claridge’s hotel. The staff found that a bit crazy.

QS: And finally, are you still skating even now the show is over?

ELEN: Yes, it is something I’ll do forever. I’ll take my kids. It is something we can do as a family. I miss Dancing on Ice already!

It’s a shame she got voted out so early, but it does mean we get to see her out on the town more. It gives us inspiration about what to wear for parties to make an entrance as there was no confusion it was Elen’s event in her crimson outfit!

Copy Elen’s Spanish style red dress with a Forever Unique embellished pleat dress. It’s fiery

The Forever Unique Dominika dress is more rough and ready…and equally sexy

Or try the Oasis one shoulder ruffle dress for another pretty way to wear red

Elen keeps off the cold by wearing a short sleeve cropped jacket like the Teatro cropped jacket

The yummy mummy said she’s crazy and she loves shoes so she’d be delighted with the outrageously sexy Fearne Cotton Penn peep toe cuff shoes

Let’s hope things continue to go well for Elen and Pete. It’s good to report happy news rather than a love split for once!
