Sophie Ellis Bextor is offering concertgoers a guide on how to dress for a festival in a column for Telegraph. One bit of advice the British pop singer had:
Stay neutral – You don’t want to be heavily made-up at a festival – it just looks odd. And as you’re spending a lot of time in the daylight, it’ll look really obvious if you have a lot of make-up on. A bit of eyeliner and mascara is all I wear. You don’t know when you’re going to see a mirror anyway, so best just to keep it simple. Any essentials you may need during the day, pack in a satchel so you’re still ‘hands-free.’ And always take dry shampoo – it’s a brilliant invention

Sophie Ellis Bextor Planning Informal Album Artwork
April 7, 2010 – Sophie answered another round of Twitter questions in a blog at her MySpace (@sophieellisbextor) on Wednesday (April 7), including if she had a concept for the artwork to her new album. The 30-year-old writes:
Yeah, I think we want to do something which is a bit looser and more informal than we have done before. I’ve done lots of lovely things where it’s been quite diva-ish and distant, and I do really like that angle for pop. But now that it’s album four, I feel like it might be OK to show a slightly different side of me. Maybe something a little bit more playful.
