Exclusive Photos Of Ellie Goulding Getting Ready For The MTV Movie Awards

In case you somehow missed Ellie Goulding looking like a total goddess both on stage and off last night at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, you should peep her red-carpet steez and her equally gorgeous performance look. We were lucky enough to get behind-the-scenes photos of her getting ready process and, as expected, she looks just as calm, collected, and glamorous backstage. Check out our exclusive photos, including one that shows how she gets her perfect ’do!

Like most people, before Ellie puts her gown on, she lounges seemingly nude on a fur-lined blanket. Do you relax in clothing or on a non-furry blanket? You’re doing it wrong. Sorry.

Ellie shows off her pale-pink manicure and ring game. Both are subtle, but paired perfectly with both of her white gowns.

While she wore strappy Jimmy Choo sandals with her white Armani gown on the carpet, she was barefoot beforehand, though there were some T-strap Mary Janes nearby. Just in case she need to make a snack run or whatever.

Now, the picture you’ve all been waiting for—how Ellie gets her glorious mane red-carpet ready. It involves a plastic mask and stylist’s help, so get recruiting. I find a strange comfort in knowing that Ellie doesn’t just wake up with perfect hair, it takes work and involves a strange tool. From now on, when I choke on hairspray fumes, I’ll think of Ellie resting comfortably.

And finally: dress on, mask off, pockets tested, and hair mussed. One hundred percent red-carpet ready.
