Monday Style Icon - Rita Ora
R.I.P. to the girl you used to see… Do you know who sang these lines? Well it’s the one and only Rita Ora!
If you don’t already know who she is, you might have figured out that she’s a singer. And a great one too! You thought that was it? Well, think again! Rita has been a judge on The Voice and X Factor. She is also an honorary ambassador to Kosovo. That doesn’t just stop here, Ora has collaborated with Adidas and Tezenis, and released her own lines of clothing and lingerie.
According to Independent, ‘her face, alternately sultry and friendly, gazes from the nation's hoardings to advertise DKNY perfume, Rimmel make-up, Superga sneakers, Material Girl clothing, Adidas sportswear, Coca-Cola and Samsung Galaxy.’ Rita Ora’s music has too seen quite a success by reaching top charts. Now after 5 years break she’s back making music with her newest single ‘Your Song’ trying to conquer US audiences.
Everything aside, Rita is a philanthropist and looking at the way she treats others speaks volumes about her as a human being. Glamour writes that ‘in partnership with Unicef, she has a long-term plan to build a performing arts school in Kosovo - a country still scarred by the Balkan wars of the '90s.’ Ora also told Glamour that the reason she signed on to be a judge for aforementioned shows is because she wishes to help a young talent.
On top of all of that she is killing it at the street style game. I have not seen anyone else that can transition from the most casual, baggy, and grungy street style looks to old hollywood glamour with such ease. There is nothing Rita can't pull off, and with her always changing looks, one can only wait with excitement what she will come up with next.
Here are some of my favorite looks of her...so far.
