Rita Ora: 'My wardrobe is bursting at the seams'

Rita Ora is excited to have landed a gig hosting America's Next Top Model, claiming she's "obsessed" with finding new talent.

Rita Ora has admitted to hoarding all of her favourite clothes.

The singer is known for her signature platinum blonde hair and eclectic ensembles, typically combining sportswear pieces with eye-popping accessories when she’s off-duty. But the 25-year-old admits her passion for fashion is causing some problems, as she can’t bear to give her favourite pieces up.

“I am really into fashion but I’m quite random,” she told Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine. “I’m spontaneous and an unexpected dresser. I have loads of clothes at my house and then a separate garage that you can’t even open without things falling out.”

Rita will likely need to clear some space in her closet soon though, as her next collection for Adidas Originals is due out in September (16). Focused on casual sports clothing, the range will be her sixth for the German apparel giant, and will also include footwear and accessories.

And the Kosovo-born star is about to expand on her style credentials in a whole new way, signing on to take over Tyra Banks’ role as host of America’s Next Top Model. The show was axed from U.S. network The CW last year (15) after 12 years on air, but picked up by VH1, and the new season will air on the channel this fall (16). Though it’s a big gig, Rita is excited by the opportunity.

“I don’t feel like I’m stepping into Tyra Banks’ footsteps. I’m creating new ones. I’ve become obsessed with finding talent. It’s a trait I didn’t know I had,” she grinned.

As well as being in demand for TV and movie roles, including recently wrapping up shooting on the Fifty Shades of Grey film franchise, she’s also making her second album after recently signing to Atlantic Records.
