Sophiedop1a_1 Ever wonder what happened to Sophie Ellis-Bextor - she of the "quirky" fashion sense and ultra-posh singing voice? No, me neither, funnily enough.  Wonder no more, though, for Sophie is to return to the fashion radar as the new face of Monsoon, following in the stiletto-heeled footsteps of Sophie Dahl and Jodie Kidd.

Sophie is no stranger to the modelling world, of course: she previously enjoyed a spell as the face of Rimmel, and has also modelled for PeTA. None of which will have prepared her for her latest role for Monsoon, presumably, as SE-B isn't actually be modelling clothes as such, but appears lying naked on a pile of cushions for the 'Create a Storm' campaign.
