Style file: Rita Ora
Big things are happening for Rita Ora stateside: as well as being a judge on The Voice and recently having a cameo in Fifty Shades of Grey, Britain’s very own pop star has been stepping up her style game recently and it hasn’t gone unnoticed.
With every red carpet appearance, Rita Ora has been winning big fashion points and becoming a superstar right before our eyes. She has been popping up all over the place, from singing next to the Obamas to rocking it at the Oscars – this girl is big and she is only going to get bigger. Trust us: she is definitely one to keep an eye on.
Her usual urban chic-grunge combo, clashing prints and bold colour choices are all still part of her eye-catching look, but her wardrobe has also been injected with a huge dose of Hollywood glamour to match her Marilyn Monroe curls and boy, is it working! There isn’t a best dressed list that doesn’t include Rita in the latest risqué fashion-forward outfit – her stylist must be having a field day.
