Tulisa: N-Dubz cramped my style

Tulisa has launched her debut fashion line

Tulisa Contostavlos has admitted she didn't have a chance to develop her own style when she was in N-Dubz.

The 24-year-old X Factor judge has launched her own fashion line TFB - a range of dresses, outfits and shoes - at London's Westfield shopping centre. She admitted she had developed a very different style since taking a break from hip-hop group N-Dubz, which she was in with her cousin Dappy and their friend Fazer.

Tulisa said: "I think my style has changed, but what's important to remember is when I was in N-Dubz I was next to two guys in tracksuits that I was trying to blend with and it was very hard to find myself or even think about fashion.

"Whereas since all of us taking a break I've had more time to find myself when it comes to fashion and get into it.

"And it was only really when I went off on my own that I started to enjoy fashion more, and that side of things."

Describing TFB, the singer said: "It's me in all kinds of moods so it's pretty versatile. We've got everything from me going to do radio in the morning and wearing a cosy jumper with some flats or trainers, to something a bit more spiced up for a night out or what I'd wear on stage performing."

Tulisa wants to share her style with her fans but added:"I don't see myself as style icon, just like I don't see myself as role model. I think there's a difference. I like to inspire people."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Your partner may be irresponsible with money and you're tired of paying the price for it. Keeping separate financial accounts may be the arrangement for the two of you. If your amour continues to accumulate debt without fear of the consequences, it may be time to part ways. You're a practical person who yearns for financial security. Putting money into a savings account gives you the freedom to travel, write and study. Don't be ashamed of your needs; they encompass your personality.More
