Rita Ora admires Kanye West’s "cool and effortless" style.

The British singer named the rapper as one of her fashion influences as she loves how easily he pulls off his trendy looks.

In the future, the R.I.P. star would love to be as successful and cool as the American musician.

"He’s one of my fashion icons. I’d love to be the female Kanye. I think he’s so cool and effortless," she told ‘ASOS’ magazine.

Rita is fast becoming a style inspiration herself thanks to her sassy urban fashion sense.

While she is often compared to Bajan beauty and fellow Jay-Z protégée Rihanna, the 21-year-old’s signature red lipstick was actually inspired by ‘90s icon and No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani.

"I always thought Gwen Stefani was so cool. I think I’m man enough to admit she made me want to wear red lipstick. When I saw it on her, I thought she was the prettiest person in the world," she said.

Rita also revealed her favourite designer.

She named young fashion graduate Ashley Williams as the sartorial creative to watch.

"I’m really into her. She’s British, so young and fresh," she said.
