The 'You Da One' singer claims she always takes the time to see what the youth of London are wearing.

Rihanna has hailed London as being one of the most fashionable cities and says she always makes sure she goes out to see what the UK capital's young people are wearing to help spot the latest trends.

The 'We Found Love' signer's fashion reality series Styled To Rock launches this week, and Rihanna says London helps "set the trends" for the world's biggest designers, and has praised the city's sense of style.

"London has always been one of my favourite cities to come to," the 'You Da One' star explained. "I always go out on the street walking around to see what the kids are doing.

"They always set the trends for the designers," Rihanna told The Sun this week. "I find that the kids in London have so much style, so much street style and so much talent.

"This show was a way for me to give these kids the opportunity to see how far they can go."

The 'Where Have You Been' singer is currently out in Barbados staying with family, after retiring from a cruise around the Mediterranean earlier this month, and was pictured giving US chatshow host Oprah Winfrey a tour of her home as part of an upcoming TV special.

Rihanna will feature in a special edition of Oprah: The Next Chapter, set to air on OWN on 14th August, which is expected to feature an in depth discussion about her failed relationship with 'Turn Up The Music' singer Chris Brown.
