Here's Why Ellie Isn't At Fashion Week

Paris Couture Week is in full spring, but not every celebrity has the time (or desire) to attend the glamorous fashion shows. According to her recent Instagram post, Ellie Goulding is too busy for fashion week, but it's not because she's touring or recording an album — she's too busy kicking butt instead.

When it comes to working out, Goulding hasn't been shy about her passion for health and being active, so it was no surprise when the "Halcyon Days" singer posted a video to Instagram on Tuesday of her doing a pretty intense boxing workout. The post was captioned, “Seeing all these people at these beautiful elegant fashion shows and I’m just here like.”

She might enjoy throwing punches and challenging her body more than sitting front row at a couture show, but that doesn't mean Ellie can't rock a gown like nobody's business. From her edgy stage ensembles to her elegant red carpet looks and even her fierce boxing attire, the British star looks just as good kicking booty as she does all dolled up. And her versatility makes her even cooler, right?

Here's a few examples of how seamlessly Ellie can transition between badass and classic beauty.
