Audrey Hepburn is Ariana Grande’s ultimate style icon and loves to search online for images of the late Hollywood star's outfits for inspiration.

Ariana Grande thinks fashion should be fun and not taken too seriously.

The pop star has teamed up with U.K. label Lipsy for a 25 piece collection, which features a range of flirty floral printed playsuits, floaty dresses, denim skirts and cute cropped T-shirts.

Of the line, the 22-year-old said she wanted it to convey a sense of summertime fun.

"Feminine, flirty and fun," she told Britain's OK! of the collection. "It doesn't take itself too seriously. It's all about having fun and looking and feeling great."

Speaking about her inspiration for the line, the Problem singer shared she looked to fashionistas on social media site Instagram as well as to favourite pieces in her own closet.

She explained her goal was to create pretty dresses and that would be transitioned from day-wear to special event wear.

"Everyone should have something floral for spring. I love a good crop top and a fun skirt too," she explained, adding, "And high heels. When you're petite like me, every inch helps!"

When it comes to style inspirations, red carpet darling Ariana has many favourites. But she singles out the late Audrey Hepburn as her ultimate sartorial icon.

"I love her timeless style. When in doubt, Google Audrey Hepburn's style and go from there. That's my one piece of fool-proof advice," she


The pony-tailed Florida native is no stranger to collaborations. Last October (15), she was unveiled as a Viva Glam spokeswoman for MAC Cosmetics, following in the footsteps of fellow pop stars Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj by lending her face and name to products sold to raise funds for the brand's HIV and AIDS charity.

For her part of the promotion she selected a dark-plum lipstick "to represent the bad girl in you" as well as a sugary pale-pink gloss.
