Ellie Goulding stars in US Cosmopolitan's May issue and if anyone was ever in any doubt over how to wear a sheer, sparkly cut-out dress, Goulding has got it covered.
"It was the first time I'd done something so completely otherworldly," she tells the magazine.
"I [used to] put men on a pedestal. They'd be everything. I decided to remedy that, and that's why I'm single now. I've realised I don't need a guy. I've got amazing, awesome, stupid friends in the best way possible."
Er, we're not sure her friends will appreciate being called "stupid" but still, we get where she's coming from.
She might not be on the look out for a guy, but something tells us these latest pictures will get her a lot of male attention...
