Singer Ellie parades her perfect pins and makes a new pal

Ellie Goulding has swapped sexy dresses for tiny sporty shorts.

The 26-year-old yesterday shared a shot of herself wearing a pair of bright blue hot pants before her interview on Ellen Degeneres‘ US chat show. 

Ellie – who was named Best Solo Artist at the Q Awards earlier this week – completed her comfy and casual look with a baggy black tee and slogan snapback cap.

The pretty singer looks to have made a new A-list friend since arriving in the States on Tuesday.
