Q&A with Rita Ora

We love the style of British singer Rita Ora, who has just released her debut album Ora, featuring her singles How We Do (Party) and R.I.P.

The Jay-Z protege is a huge fashion fan, recently showcasing her daily outfits on UK Vogue's website, photographed in everything from Diane von Furstenberg dresses to 3.1 Phillip Lim suits, Christian Louboutin heels to Air Jordan sneakers. We talk to her about her fun approach to style.

You have worn New Zealand label I Love Ugly a few times: how did you hear about them?
Kyle, my day-to-day stylist got them for me. I love it - it's cool stuff.

Describe your relationship between fashion and music?
It's definitely really important and a form of self-expression. I think my style reflects my music too.

What do you wear to perform?
Jordans usually, to jump around in. I also wear more extravagant clothing than my daywear.

What do you love about fashion?
I love how you can look different and it changes your mood.

Who has shaped your style?
Bianca Jagger for her suits, Kate Moss for her rock, Gwen Stefani for fearless cool, and Daphne Guinness for her jewellery and crazy dresses.

What was the last thing you bought?
A Latex Superwoman costume.

What designer do you love to wear most?
Chanel. So well made.

What is your approach to beauty?
Flawless, glowy skin and a strong lip.

Red lips are your signature: what's your favourite shade?
Ruby Woo by M.A.C.

Always in my makeup bag ...
Liquid eyeliner and bronzer.
