The British singer channels Marilyn Monroe as the face of the Italian fashion house’s autumn/winter 2014 campaign. Rita Ora pulls off her signature platinum blonde curls and a more subtle make-up look with no sign of her trademark red lips. Prints, lace and inlays adorn the sinuous silhouettes of the clothes.
The 23-year-old pop star, who recently split with musician Calvin Harris and is said to be dating now Tommy Hilfilger’s rapper son, Ricky Hil, is broadening her fashion credentials.
For several months she’s been spotted on the red carpet wearing Cavalli gowns. And in April, she shared on her Instagram account images of her shooting the ads.
The sexy photoshoot was shot in New York by Vogue photographer Francesco Carrozzini, under the creative direction of Eva Cavalli, the wife of founder Roberto.
However, this is not the first time we see Miss Ora in the fashion world. After she joined supermodel Cara Delevigne as a face of DKNY, she was chosen by Madonna and her daughter Lourdes to front their Material Girl clothing line. And to spice her modelling up, she’s also set to launch a sportswear collection with Adidas Originals and this year launched a beauty collaboration with Rimmell London of bold colours and Pop Art-inspired packaging.
Just last week the talented singer took the stage in Madrid, Spain and at London’s Wireless Festival to perform her upcoming collaboration with Iggy Azalea.
The multifaceted star has dabbled not only in modelling, but also in acting as she’s set to appear in the new 50 Shades of Grey film.
