Rita Ora's closet dreams

Rita Ora wants to raid Madonna's closet and was first inspired to wear red lipstick by Gwen Stefani.

The blonde bombshell is known for rocking a chic street style, and often shows off her toned physique in crop and bra-style tops.

While designers flock to dress Rita, the British babe still wishes she could have access to someone else's closet.

"Madonna," Rita told People magazine when they asked who she'd like to swap wardrobes with. "She'd have amazing clothes in there. Or Freddie Mercury would be fun."

Describing her own fashion sense as spontaneous, unorganised and colourful she also revealed her mom is "so glam" as she wears Chanel No. 5. perfume.

She cites a pair of leather pants from Balmain as her favourite item of clothes, and claims to wear them every day.

"[My favourite red carpet look is] the massive red Marchesa gown I wore to the 2012 MTV European Music Awards. It's the type of dress I'd get married in," she sighed.

It's not just red garments the singer likes to wear. A rogue lip is the hue she favours most when it comes to perfecting her pout.

Rita's brought out a cosmetics range with make-up giants Rimmel, and divulges it was a fellow pop star who first got her interested in beauty.

"[I fell in love with red lipstick] when I was 13, I saw Gwen Stefani bouncing around on TV, and I was like, 'Who is that? That's what I want to do'," she recalled.

The 23-year-old's make-up hasn't always looked so flawless though.

"I used to put eyeliner on the bottom of my eyes. It would always smudge, and I'd look like I had massive bags," she laughed.
