Charli XCX inspired by fashion faux-pars

Charli XCX's style is inspired by the "worst-dressed" pages of magazines.

The 'Boom Clap' hitmaker has cultivated an eclectic and unique style - inspired by 90s fashion - and she insists she just "does what she feels" when it comes to her personal style and she gets a lot of ideas from alleged fashion faux pars.

The 22-year-old singer said: "I was always more interested in the 'worst dressed' pages and extreme rock 'n' roll makeup rather than what was 'good' technically.

"I do what I feel. It's nice to have one look that you love and is classic and simple, but also to experiment sometimes and go wild."

Charli - who has collaborated with fellow pop fashionistas Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea - will never forget the first ever bold fashion statement she made while she was still at school.

She told Stella magazine: "I remember going to a school disco dressed all in purple - purple flares, purple halter-neck top, purple sandals - and then covering my eyes in purple eye-shadow and purple glitter, so I was all matchy-match. It was great."

What Charli loves most about fashion and cosmetics is their power to alter her mood and increase her confidence.

She said: "Makeup definitely has the ability to transform. And fragrance, too. When I put perfume on I immediately feel 10 times more sassy.

"As for beauty icons, Britney (Spears) in the 1990s was great, so fresh faced. Also Angelina Jolie at that time had incredible make-up. For stage looks I go to Siouxsie Sioux - her eye-make-up is wild."
