Ariana Grande, 22, has launched her second collection for fashion collection Lipsy in time for summer - this apron neckline prom dress is an update on a bandeau style number featured in her first range
Her pieces are 'girly and flirty' and often with a nod to the 60s, which the songstress cites as her fashion inspiration with her icon being Audrey Hepburn
Ariana, who joins Michelle Keegan at the label, said: 'It was so great being able to create a follow up range for my fans for one of my favourite seasons. Summer is all about dressing girly, flirty and fun and my Lipsy range is definitely a reflection of that.'
The 22-year-old actress-turned-singer often cites Audrey Hepburn and the 60s as her fashion inspiration, and this latest collection is no exception - with key pieces such as the mono crochet lace dress giving a stylish nod to the era.
'I love fashion from the Sixties, especially all things Audrey Hepburn', Ariana, who is also known for her Sixties-inspired winged eyeliner, told MailOnline.
Combination co-ords also feature prominently with lace detail shorts, eye catchy fit and flare skirts, bralets and cute crop tops.
As in her debut range, monochrome and silvers are the focus but with highlights of cornflower blue in the daytime pieces and a pop of lipstick pink in evening numbers.
Vintage-look Broderie anglaise and oversized bows are also a theme across the collection, prices for which start at £25 for bralet tops and go up to £38 for playsuits and dresses.

And Ariana's new fashion line is launched alongside a jewellery range of more than 30 pieces complete with pom-pom earings, puppy keyrings and a focus on star and moon charms.
Speaking about the piece that best represents her, Ariana looks to a summer print prom dress with apron neckline - an update on the hero floral bandeau dress from the debut range but with the same full-hem detail and splashes of hushed violet florals.
She said: 'I love the violet floral printed dress with the apron neck. It’s super feminine and it’s a perfect dress for summer that you can wear again and again.'

Ariana admits that she's not afraid of being bold in fashion and has no fear about making a fashion faux pas on the red carpet - or being risqué on stage.
'I’m sure I’ve had lots [of fashion faux pas] but I think fashion should be fun and I just wear things that make me happy and confident.
'I think people should wear whatever makes them feel their best. I love my stage outfits - they are fun and easy to dance in,' said the star, who has a staggering 61.4m followers on Instagram.
Although the range is predominantly monochrome, this evening dress injects a dash of bright lipstick pink
As in her debut range, Ariana models the entire collection herself and displays her trim figure in the campaign shots. So what's the secret behind her slim physique?
'I have been a vegan for the last few years and it's been a great experience for me. I try and live a healthy lifestyle - eating right, exercise and sleep, are all so important to me.'
And she insists she far more confident - in her body and work - now that she's in her 20s.
'I love my life right now. I am so proud of my new album and it really reflects who I am as a person. My fans are so supportive too.'
She also says the support of family and friends - like fellow pop star Katy Perry - is integral to that.
'Katy is so great. She has been supportive of me from day one and I know I can always count on her to look out for me,' Ariana said.
The former Disney star has a combined social media reach across her official accounts of over 115 million fans, as well as being one of the top 10 most followed Instagram users in the world.
Ariana's new collection for Lipsy is available online and in stores from today.
