Rita Ora says that showing off her sexuality through her fashion choices is empowering.
The 28-year-old singer and actress says women “naturally use sex appeal” and she loves showing off her sexuality with her fashion choices.
Speaking to Virgin Media’s ‘Xposé’, Rita said: “What I look for when I make style choices really comes down to who I want to be that day. I think that as a woman we naturally use sex appeal and I feel like that just comes out of our pores whether we see it or not. We are just that kind of creature.
“I really rely on that, I really rely on being a woman. I make the most of my choices, and even of showing my sexuality because I find it so empowering.
“I look at it like beauty and art. I envy the girls that can go out and not wear any make-up and feel comfortable and sexy. For me, I like making a dramatic impact, so I like to put on make-up and to decide on how I want to feel that day.”
Rita is happy to take fashion risks and never wants to be afraid to try new things.
She explained: “I would like to have no boundaries. I would like to feel like I can wear anything and everything. My history in style has been really sporadic so far.
“It was always like [people said], ‘Oh, I didn’t expect her to wear that’. I don’t ever want to stop trying out new things!”
And Rita believes being stylish is all about attitude.
The star – who has signed on as the face of footwear brand Deichmann – said: “My style inspiration always comes from attitude, from rock stars and movie stars. As long as that attitude is there, never let the clothes wear you.
“I’ve always believed that you have so many incredible, beautiful people in the world that have that doubt like, ‘Oh I can’t pull that off’, ‘There’s no way in hell I can wear that’ – you just don’t know unless you try. I think it’s all about attitude. That’s how I look at it really.”
