Rita Ora's fashion studies

Rita Ora snuck style magazines into her books so she could daydream about fashion when she was at school.

The blonde bombshell is one of the biggest names in music, thanks to hits like How We Do (Party) and I Will Never Let You Down. She's also made her mark in the fashion world, starring in campaigns for DKNY and Roberto Cavalli as well as bringing out her own collection with Adidas.

Her flair for fashion started at a young age, and the 23-year-old would often immerse herself in trends and styles while in the classroom.

"I'd slot fashion magazines in my school books and get lost in a daydream world. I loved the idea of glamour, of feeling gorgeous and dressing up," Rita confessed to British magazine Stylist.

"I've always wanted to make an impact visually; it's another way of identifying yourself."

Rita often rocks bold looks on the red carpet, and recently wowed at the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London in a glitzy silver floor-length gown, featuring a thigh-high slit.

When quizzed on her wardrobe, Rita admits nothing is off limits when it comes to clothes.

"Nope," she giggled. "I know people will think, 'Yeah right', but there really isn't. I'm up for trying anything.

"My parents were great at bringing me up. They gave me morals but they never trapped me. Yeah, they might have thought I was a bit crazy with what I wore and what I did, but they were supportive and they made me really confident. I always just remind myself that whatever you choose to wear, at the end of the day, you're not offending anybody."
