Rita Ora: I shocked with off-duty style

Rita Ora was left embarrassed when she "exploded" in her outfit during at the Cannes Film Festival.

The 24-year-old's acting career is ever-growing and she takes on a dark role opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in upcoming boxing movie.

Rita is known for looking glam and sporting her iconic red lipstick and blonde curls while in the spotlight, so was amused when people mistook her down-time appearance as a costume.

"It was actually really simple. I walked on set and the make-up and clothes team were like, 'Oh yeah, you're ready.’ And I said, 'But I haven't gone to hair and make-up yet,'" she recalled to Q magazine. "So, basically, they already thought I looked like a crack addict, which made me laugh!"

Rita showed off her impeccable style credentials at Cannes Film Festival last month, donning a variety of outfits from a strapless red Marchesa gown to a sleek Versace suit.

However, everything didn't go to plan during one event as the star had a slight wardrobe malfunction.

"I was wearing an outfit which didn't fit properly so I just sort of forced myself into it and then it all exploded," she laughed. "The zip broke, the trouser slipped... it was like White Chicks all over again. Pretty embarrassing."

Rita relies on her personal stylist Jason Rembert for fashion tips and recently gushed about how the fashion expert uses his experience to pick the perfect outfit for her. Her approach to clothing is a little different, and she ends up following her gut most of the time.
