Wow! This is pretty futuristic – pop star and Strictly Come Dancing finalist, Sophie Ellis-Bextor has released a new ‘shoppable’ pop video to launch the new C. Wonder fashion collection.


This vibrant video sees Sophie strutting her stuff and snapping her fingers as she transforms into eight different looks from this fab collection, exclusive to QVC. Shoppers can simply click on each outfit and be taken to the QVC website to purchase any of this new stylish range.


The film features a specially composed song “Wonder” featuring vocals from new talent Biba and is a great backing track for our wonder woman Sophie’s magical wardrobe change dances!


The C. Wonder range was curated by E! Fashion Show Police panellist Brad Goreski, whose celebrity clients include Jessica Alba and Demi Moore.


Brad told us, “I’m so excited to bring something wonderful to QVC UK as the Creative Director of C. Wonder! This line is all about global travel and exploration and I hope that the C. Wonder woman will love our preppy, bohemian look.” He went on to say, “Wearing C. Wonder means being confident, comfortable and chic – that’s what I love about fashion and style.”


It seems Sophie is impressed too! This energetic mother-of four explained, “I really like the stylish and accessible nature of the C. Wonder collection at QVC. I have a passion for all things 60’s and 70’s inspired so it’s a perfect addition to my wardrobe.”


Take a look at this global inspired collection yourself. At prices ranging from £23 to £65 I could definitely afford to unleash my inner bohemian goddess too!

I do like Sophie Ellis-Bextor. Someone who enjoys a dance routine as much as fashion gets a big thumbs up from me.

I first saw singer-songwriter Sophie strutting her stuff in 2002 on her video for Murder on The Dance Floor. A decade later and three children on, she still looked amazing on Strictly Come Dancing in the arms of dance partner Brendan Cole.

So I was thrilled to see her unveiled as the face of Phase Eight. The beautiful, floral prom-style dresses really suit her. Sophie who has often been compared to Audrey Hepburn looks wonderful in these Fifties looking pieces. A big move for Phase Eight as they haven’t used a high profile celebrity since Yasmin Le Bon in Spring 2003.

Judith Bremner, Brand Director says, “Sophie is the ultimate Phase Eight woman – she is successful, confident, loves fashion and interprets it to work for her own personal style. She relates well to our customers who aspire to wear dresses that are elegant, flattering and versatile.”

These gorgeous dresses are definitely versatile. I’d wear them to work events and evenings out. My favourite one is the Kimono style, Chantay Rose dress that embraces two of the major trends this spring – The Orient and ‘Flower Power’. This one looks like a winner to me!


Beautifully shot by photographer Damien Weilers, the soft lighting and floral prop styling compliment the very romantic feel.

This 22-piece collection is completed with lovely vintage style jewellery, heels and clutch bags. Sophie explains, “This collection provides perfect outfit solutions for summer weddings and garden parties where you always want to feel special and unique. I love how the collection exudes feminine and stylish dressing.”


Well it certainly looks like Phase Eight is coming up roses with this collaboration. I’m popping in-store this afternoon to bag one myself!

Have a look on-line at the beautiful collection – Sophie Ellis-Bextor at Phase Eight.
