Rocker Lenny Kravitz has unveiled the source of influence for his individual sense of style - his late mother's closet.

The DIG IN singer admits he spent a lot of time playing in his actress mother Roxie Roker's wardrobe whenever he had the chance to - and it helped shape his unique taste in fashion.

He says, "When my mom used to go out when I was a kid, I'd go in her closet. It was like the '70s. My mom's closet was laid out - boots, jackets, hats and chains and all this stuff.

"She'd go out and I'd play in her closet - not the dresses! Not that I wouldn't wear a dress, but you know what I'm saying!"

And Kravitz insists his tastes in clothes developed extremely early, adding,"People sort of wonder if I'm putting this on, but then I show them pictures of myself when I was in, like, second grade and I had the big sleeves and the chain! Same person."

But now life has taken an ironic twist for Kravitz - his 15-year-old daughter ZOE has started wearing a lot of his clothes.
