Rita Ora's Longtime Stylist Jason Rembert on NYE Party Fashion & Jeggings
British pop star Rita Ora is known for her adventurous, sexy style and confident, sincere personality -- qualities that founded a successful music career and made her the perfect host for the revamped America’s Next Top Model. For the past seven years, stylist Jason Rembert has worked alongside the multitalented singer as her trusted fashion collaborator.
At only 28-years-old, the New York native is also responsible for the solo career makeover of ex-One Direction member Zayn Malik, debuting a sultry bad-boy look in Malik’s “Pillow Talk,” which Rembert styled himself. With two of the U.K.’s hottest stars, as well as rising singer/rapper Anderson .Paak, on his resume, Rembert is a power player to recognize in the styling world. Billboard’s Stylist Spotlight highlights Rembert’s likes, dislikes, and NYE party tips below.

The week before, Temperley London had a preview in L.A. that I attended. I fell in love with a dress, and asked if they could send for Billboard Women in Music.
