Rita Ora: Cotton Candy Meets Rock Candy

I wouldn't be able to tell you ONE song she sings! HaHaHa However, whenever I see British musician Rita Ora featured in the media, she always shines. There's an effervescence about her! She looks like a mix of Rihanna, Gwen Stefani and the late singer Aaliyah. I haven't listened to her on YouTube yet, so I'm asking you guys to clue me in! What do you know about Rita? She did a photo shoot for Vogue Korea Girl that I thought was cute, but this Euro Star feature in Elle US (May 2013) photographed by Thomas Whiteside is exquisite. She's wearing Haute Couture from designer labels Chanel, Dior and Valentino. It's like cotton candy meets rock candy! HaHaHa The last photo is priceless! If I had to caption that picture, it would read "I don't give a rats ass!" HaHaHa In that photo, she's wearing a strapless Calvin Klein and Philip Treacy headpiece. Have a great day you guys!

  2. She looks stunning in this editorial. I wasn't the biggest fan of hers in the beginning, but then a friend and I went and saw her at a live show, and liked her more. Love these photos. :)Madison

  5. I need someone to clue me in about Rita Ora, too! I keep seeing her in the media, but I didn't even know what she actually did until I read your post - you're keeping me informed, Kim :) I spotted this photoshoot yesterday and immediately fell in love with the mouse photo... it might have something to do with my upcoming trip to Disneyland Paris, but I'm all about mouse ears lately and that shot just takes it to a whole new level!

  7. Cute photos! I haven't bought any of Rita Ora's music but 'How we do(Party)' is a happy little song which is often on the radio over here.

  8. Ha! Love the caption you devised for that last photo! :) The photo collection is amazing--and the color of pink featured in the headdress is my fave.

  9. Wow the pink dress with the thigh high boots is incredible outfit! Not that you could ever wear it anywhere - where would it ever be appropriate?! - but it is a stunning outfit for an editorial :)

    I'm with you though, not sure who she is!

  14. Kim, I think the best feature of her's is her lips. She can pout without even trying. Thanks for this dreamy post. I LOVE fashion magazines. I get lost in them like writers get lost in novels. Ahhhhhh ~

  15. Congratulations to Julie!
    And thank you for sharing a beautiful editorial, Kim. Unfortunately I am not very familiar with her music either - I know the name and recognise her, but never actually thought of listening to anything. :)

  25. I had never heard of her either until I saw her name connected to Rob Kardashian on my fave gossip sites a little while ago.

    She definitely reminds me of Rihanna which unfortunately for Rita is not doing her any favors (I'm personally not a Rihanna fan). But She is a lovely girl for sure!

  52. I definitely could NOT tell you one song she sings lol! But I've been seeing her a lot in the news lately, and I have to agree -- she's always looks nice, very stylish indeed. Something about her sort of reminds me of Janelle Monae (whose songs I could tell you)...

  60. When I 1st saw her, I was actually watching Fashion Police and Joan River was talking s**t about her outfit. Then I saw her again on In Style magazine this month and apparently they said she's the Rihanna for the Brits. Actually, I've no clue who she is as well and still waiting to hear a song from her. I think she is definitely quirky and sweet at the same time from the photoshoot =)

    ReplyDelete
  61. LOL, the only thing I know about her is that she dated Rob Kardashian for a long time. I had no idea she was even British.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I agree 100% with your statement, I have NO clue what she sings or how she sounds. Yet, I did enjoy this editorial. She looks amazing & cute all in one. LOL
