Rita Ora Has a Bigger Wig Collection Than Beyoncé

Aug 24 2014 - 2:00pm

Rita Ora has more to her look than just a red lip. Even though you rarely see her without her signature shade, she mixes up her beauty style in other ways. Rita confesses to owning millions of wigs (OK, that's an exaggeration, but you get the point) that she customizes with her styling team. Just this Summer we've spotted the songstress in a rainbow bob [1], and she loves a phony pony too! The songstress-turned-actress also has a love of Japanese nail art, so you'll never see her with the same manicure twice. Recently, we caught up with the Renaissance woman as she promoted her My NY fragrance [2] ($88) campaign with DKNY [3]. She revealed details about her upcoming album, her hair essentials, and tips from her beauty buddy Iggy Azalea.

All About Her Wigs

POPSUGAR: How is London beauty different than New York beauty?

Rita Ora: Well the difference for me is not a lot, actually. To me, worldwide beauty is really one word. It means bringing the beauty out of yourself — whatever skin color, hair color, or eye color you have. There really isn't a difference.

PS: You're constantly changing your hair hue. Have you learned any lessons from changing the shade so often?

RO: I love playing with hair colors and semipermanent dyes. My hairstylist Chris [Appleton] is just as experimental as I am, so we buy 20 million wigs and play with them. We cut them up and mess around. It's all about characters. We just love creating different types of characters.

PS: Let's talk about nails. You have on glitter today, but what nail designs are you loving these days?

RO: I have glitter today because I knew I was wearing silver, and it's an unusual dress. I love the fact that it's like that. I love the Japanese nail art, and I'm obsessed with what you can do with nails. It's another form of decorating yourself, so why wouldn't you?

On Iggy Azalea

PS: You recently teamed up with Iggy Azalea on the "Black Widow" video. Have you ladies shared any beauty tips?

RO: She's so cool. I've known her for so long, and it's nice to have a friend in this world. Someone who is really hot, really fun, and understands hotness. I love that it's two blondes in this music video, and we're just beating boys up. I think that's what makes it cool.

PS: Describe the music from your new album in three words.

RO: This album is full of honesty, truth, and the music is from people who I've loved working with, from Pharrell Williams to Prince to amazing songwriters to some friends who I've grown up with in my area back home. It's a mixture of my real life. For me, this is the moment of truth. It's all in this album.
