Rita Ora's pre-party snacking

Rita Ora doesn't like people thinking she's hungry at parties.

The 24-year-old singer attends a lot of big events for work, so has the preparation down. As well as knowing what looks good on her, Rita has a ritual she goes through food-wise before she ventures out.

"Whatever I can get my hands on, because I can't cook!" she laughed, when British magazine Cosmopolitan asked what she eats on these occasions. "A nice pasta, maybe. You never want to look like you're really hungry when you eat in front of people at a party."

Last month the star caused raised eyebrows when she attended an Oscars party in a sheer Donna Karan dress which left little to the imagination. For show-stopping events like that Rita enjoys going all out, explaining that sometimes she probably stretches things too far.

"Something a bit rock 'n' roll - leather pants, a rocky T-shirt and some thigh-high boots. When I aim for understated it probably seems really dressed up to everyone else!" she said.

At the Oscars event Rita debuted her new short hair, a blonde crop with longer strands that she styled into a quiff. While she's dedicated to her beloved red lipstick the singer is less nervous about mixing things up with her locks. In fact, she likes working on styles which will be remembered for some time to come.

"I like festival hair - loose waves that look a bit salty, like you've just come off the beach. My hairdresser Chris Appleton is amazing - we just have fun and treat my hair like it's art," she said.
