First Look: Jessie J is ELLE’s November cover star

By Alannah Sparks

Kate Middleton told her she loved her work. Stella McCartney is a friend that she met at ‘the palace’. This summer alone she sang for the Jubilee and asserted her meteoric rise by carrying the whole Olympic Closing Ceremony.

But the starry life and helter-skelter existence of Jessie J haven’t deprived the singing supernova of the capacity to be excited. Which she was, at our photo shoot with Rankin, describing it rather sweetly as her ‘best shoot ever’.

You can see why in the November issue of ELLE. Isn’t she beautiful? An alabaster vision of perfect facial symmetry and endless legs, she’s been styled up by Senior Fashion Editor Natalie Wansbrough-Jones in show-stopping evening gowns and lashings of gold brocade.

From Dolce & Gabbana to Elie Saab via Jean Paul Gaultier and a vision of a Giles gown, she elegantly exemplifies why the garish old style has been left behind and a more graceful Jessie has taken her place.

Katie Mulloy interviews the Pricetag singer and discovers that she loves the odd lychee martini, that she plans to give Adele a sterilizer as a baby gift, and what she got up to after she sang to a billion people at the Olympics.

Check the site on Monday morning to watch our behind-the-scenes video from the cover shoot. Follow us on Twitter @ELLEUK to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
