She may have triumphed in the London Games with a gold medal, but that evidently isn't enough for the heptathlon star as she progresses to make an impact in the fashion world.

The 26-year-old British athlete has wowed us with her elegant style choices post winning at the Olympics earlier this year, and is now all set to add another string to her bow by wishing to design her very own fashion label.

The bankers' favourite news source City A.M sees its new Bespoke magazine have Team GB's favourite champion, Jessica Ennis, grace the cover of its second issue.

Talking of ditching Stella McCartney's lycra designed hot pants and crop tops for the London Games in favour of a coterie of stylish designer dresses, Jessica is honoured to have her pick of some of the most covetable gowns around.

"It's a brilliant position to be in. It's nice to have the option to pick and choose - it's less stressful when you're deciding what to wear," the 26-year-old told Bespoke.

And it seems as though Jessica's frequent appearances at fashion shows have started to influence the Olympian on the way she dresses, as well as putting a few seeds in her head.

"I'd love to start my own fashion label - whether it's collaborating with [a sportswear brand] or doing the more fashion-y side of things," she opined.

Describing Victoria Beckham and Alexander McQueen as her ultimate style influences, Jessica has certainly blossomed from the days of seeing her in skimpy sports wear, now fighting off designers to dress her at high-profile events.
