Ellie Goulding
Age: 25. Real name: Elena Jane Goulding. Hometown: Hereford, England. Career highlight: Singing a cover of Elton John's "Your Song" at the wedding reception of Prince William and Kate Middleton, at Buckingham Palace. ("I didn't meet Pippa, but I hear she's awesome.") On her style: "I think about my figure a lot when it comes to fashion. I like being cute. I don't have the boobs to be a blonde bombshell, so I can be quite androgynous and just wear, like, a T-shirt with no bra. I have two sides of me — grungy meets Barbie." Best part about being a pop star: "It took a long time to get used to it, but all I want to do is tour. It's escapism because you're away from the real world and get to do your favorite thing every night."

VV Brown
Age: 28 Real name: Vanessa Brown. Hometown: Northampton, England. How she got the name: "I love hip-hop. In school, on the playground, we would beat-box. V V became my emcee name." When she knew she wanted to be a star: "I was 8, and sang 'Consider Yourself' from Oliver! in a talent contest. My mom still has it on video." Most-prized possession: "An Aztec hat with two horns and Mexican beads. I found it in a vintage shop and paid around 800 pounds [$1,500] for it. I was told it belonged to Boy George. It's my little charm." Lesson learned: "I was ambitious when I was young. I was going to win a Grammy and sell a million records. But now it's more, Do I like what I've made? If I'm proud of it, then I'm happy." Must Download Now: V V Brown, "Children" Jacket, $1,880, Salvatore Ferragamo; top, $995, Calvin Klein Collection. On hair: Nexxus ProMend Split End Binding Straightening Lotion.

Natalia Kills
Age: 25 Real name: Natalia Keery-Fisher. Hometown: Bradford, England. How she got the name: "Someone once asked me, 'How would you describe yourself?' I just thought, Kills — when you want to do something right, you kill it." On her dark style: "I wear black all the time like I'm in mourning. I think I dress to my music without even realizing it. I don't really follow fashion. If I see something that I like, I take it, wear it, and it's glorious." On-the-road essentials: "Lipstick and Oscar Wilde." Romancing a pop star: "My Chihuahua, Dracula, was a gift from a lover. I always have someone. I'm a serial dater. I haven't been single since I was 14. I just refuse."

On overnight success: "One minute I'm staying in my dingy little apartment, and the next minute I'm being flown to New York to take a huge meeting with the record label. It's definitely going to be an exciting story for my grandkids. I'm going to be like, 'Your grandma used to have a record deal! I used to be the finest thing!' And they're not going to give a shit.
