Curated.Works: Couture Melodies – Ellie Goulding

Here comes the latest piece from Couture Melodies and this time, Desiree created an illustration based on Ellie Goulding and Zuhair Murad S/S 2013 Haute Coutre Collection! I think this is a perfect match because both Ellie and the collection are so elegant and beautiful.

John Anthony has chosen Anything Could Happen and I think it’s a perfect song/video choice. The video has the same aesthetic as the illustration and you can easily put this Zuhair Murad look in it. Now let’s see what Desiree and John have to say about the musician and the brand.

Why did you pair Ellie Goulding with this piece from Zuhair Murad S/S 2013 Haute Couture collection?
Ellie Goulding, the energetic blond with angelic features and the sweet soprano voice paired perfectly with Zuhair Murad‘s Greek inspired Couture collection. Her round facial features provide her with a sense of innocence, and almost cherubic complexion that makes her appear as a Greek goddess adorned in a wreath of gold and flowing white linen. Zuhair Murad‘s collection provides Ellie Goulding with the appearance of a powerful goddess from the heavens.

What do you think of Zuhair Murad’s S/S 2013 Haute Couture Collection?
Zuhair Murad‘s S/S 2013 Couture Collection is one of my personal favorites of the season. Among seductively cut designs, sophisticated beading and embellishments, and light flowing fabric, Zuhair Murad has the whole glamours package. Taking inspiration from Greek mythology, royal attire, and art, the modern splendor of the collection captivated the senses. Every inch of every gown is created to perfection, so that whomever has the honor of wearing one of Zuhair Murad‘s pieces will appear like a mythological goddess, adorned in heavenly attire.

Why do you want to pair this song with this illustration?
I’ve matched this drawing of Ellie Goulding with her video for “Anything Could Happen“. With Ellie appearing like an angel in the illustration, it could easily be placed within the video. The dress being white symbolizes life and purity to me, and watching the video for “Anything Could Happen” really brings to life both of those themes. You definitely need to check it out!

What do you think of Ellie Goulding’s music? Do you have a particular song you like from her?
One of my favourite songs from Ellie Goulding is “Salt Skin“. When I first heard the track, I knew there was something really special about her music. Ellie has plenty of great songs, but Salt Skin manages to combine multiple genres into one. The song is also very dark and theatrical, with electronic sounds and great writing. It is very different from anything she has ever released since, and remains a favourite of mine for its novelty and sheer brilliance.

Next month, we are going to show you the final piece of this series and I promise it will not disappoint you. Can you guess who she is? Stay tuned!
