Raye admits fashion can be 'intimidating'

The British singer-songwriter has revealed that many of the artists she looks up to for their musical talent also influence the way she dresses. "Ella Fitzgerald was a beautiful woman and I love the way she dressed," Raye told Elle in an interview published on Wednesday. "Same with Nina Simone and Diana Ross."
