From designers to musicians, supermodels to Hollywood's hottest stars, GLAM4GOOD asks the world's most influential pop culture icons to share their thoughts on the true meaning of beauty and style.

GLAM4GOOD loves Rita Ora for her sick fashion sense, cool tunes and social media genius. Ora has exploded onto the scene to become one of the world's hottest "It Girls." She sings, models and acts in a big, bold beautiful way and tells GLAM4GOOD she wants to inspire people everywhere to be courageous in everything they do.

Ora is a fashion risk taker and is quickly becoming a style icon. GLAM4GOOD asked her how she thinks fashion empowers.

Fashion gives people a sense of identity through expression of clothes and appearance. You can wear things that mean a lot to you, all my jewellery is from my mother or grandmother and gifts. I wear a ring for good luck, for example, when I perform! Fashion gives me the confidence to look and feel great.

We asked Ora to tell us her definition of beauty and what words of wisdom she would give young people everywhere:

"True beauty is knowing who you are and believing in yourself. Happy people know their purpose, have courage to fight for it and strength to keep going."
