British Fashion Awards 2023: Ellie Goulding dresses for the weather in cropped black padded bomber jacket
Ellie Goulding was prepared for the British cold as she arrived at London's Royal Albert Hall for the British Fashion Awards on Monday.
The 36-year-old singer dressed appropriately for the weather and wore a short, black padded bomber jacket.
It looked like the hitmaker grabbed the jacket at the last minute as she let it hang just over her shoulders for the snaps.
Underneath the jacket, Ellie opted for an all-black ensemble, as she cut a chic figure in a smart blazer dress.
The star paired the short dress with a pair of shiny black knee-high boots, adding a few extra inches to her height.
