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.''
