Charli XCX's bold style

Singer Charli XCX gets her style inspiration from movies like Clueless.

Musician Charli XCX will always favour a "loud" style.

The British singer is known for her quirky dress sense and hit the Q Awards in October (15) wearing a tiny black negligee-style dress, chunky black heels and an oversized sheepskin coat. Never one to blend in, the 23-year-old star is always on the hunt for exciting new pieces.

"Movie characters," she smiled to Britain's OK! magazine when asked where she gets her inspiration. "I love Cher Horowitz from Clueless and Courtney Shayne from Jawbreaker. Designer-wise I like that loud, fearless rock'n'roll edge to fashion so it's designers like Jeremy Scott and Moschino."

With Charli's strong presence in the music industry, it's no surprise beauty brand Impulse was keen to team up with the star. She's designed two limited-edition cans of body spray for the company and is pleased with the results.

"I've always loved the brand and been a fan since the Spice Girls did stuff with them in the '90s," she smiled. "It's fun and young and something that I still use myself so it made sense for me to redesign the cans for the scents Rock and Love and Vanilla Kisses. When I'm coming off stage, I want to go straight out and party so it's a quick way to smell cute and fresh."

Charli has also collaborated with online retailer Boohoo on a retro collection. She took tips from the '90s for the line which will drop on 26 October 2015.

“I like that element of fashion in some ways,” she explained to “Even the runways I think in the '90s were just so wild and fearless. Like the Versace runway shows, the Chanel runways, and the swimwear runways were just so wild and sassy and electric, and I really like that about that era of fashion.”
