Ella Henderson took to the catwalk at last night’s Very.co.uk Christmas event at the Tower Of London, showing us she’s not just a great singer – but she can skate, too!
The X Factor runner-up glided down the fashion brand’s Christmas Collection catwalk with the help of two lovely male skaters, while wearing a Very pink and orange bobble jumper and a leather skater skirt.
We’ve always been big fans of Ella’s look, and now the 16-year-old has revealed that she’d like to follow in the footsteps of Victoria Beckham and turn her attention to designing clothes.
She said: “I’d really love to have my own fashion line. I love the timeless, retro look – you saw some of that on The X Factor with my style and my hair. It’s something I’d really like to get involved in, creating that 1950s and 60s look for the high street.”
This is too exciting. And her favourite high street shop? “I love River Island,” she said.
Ella wouldn’t dish the dirt on her rumoured romance with Union J’s Josh, simply telling us: “It was so good to see the Union J boys on Sunday night, but they’re like my brothers.”
We’d love to see Ella designing a retro range for the high street, but does this mean her singing career will take a backseat? Heck, no.
Talking about leaving the talent show early, she said: “Everything happens for a reason and it’s given me a real chance to focus on releasing my own material. I’m so excited!”
Roll on 2013… we predict BIG things for this little superstar. RM
