British singer, songwriter and actress – Rita Ora oozes her style on the cover of Flare magazine. The 23 years old looked no less than stunning in blue denim outfit with heavy chunk accessorising.
The author says-
As I soon learn, this sentence ‘It’s so good for us. It’s called GLAMAH’ functions as an ethos for Ora, who, even on her most blasé days, imbues everything she does with a powerful theatricality, from her high-energy music videos to her trademark bold beauty looks.
In Flare, she disclosed that she recently teamed up with the brand Rimmel to launch her own collection. She also has an upcoming capsule collection with Adidas, and next February she makes her acting debut with a supporting role as Christian Grey’s sister, Mia, in the highly anticipated movie adaptation of “50 Shades of Grey”.
Rita Ora is one of the muses of designer BFF Jeremy Scott, who spoke to Vanity Fair about her-
Rita never gets lost in a look, and that is a really rare quality. Nor does she look simply like a model wearing fashion—she still looks like Rita. She retains her DNA in all her different guises.
