The newest British darling Rita Ora has been getting a lot of love lately from the camera and the press and we can't blame them. The R&B singer, who has already appeared in i-D Magazine and Vogue Daily, now graces the cover of the U.K.'s Sunday Times Style April issue with her blonde hair, bold and puckered lips, and a playful ensemble matched with killer heels.
The fashion feature, photographed by Damon Barker, includes floral prints and patterns on fun and dressy pieces and seductive intimates. She also talks about her rise to the top and her upcoming debut album.
In a recent interview with That Grape Juice, the "R.I.P." singer talked about being affiliated with Jay-Z and befriending Beyoncé as well as how she stands apart from the other female artists on the market.
"Well, how Rita stands out from the pack I think is that I’m very honest with my music," she said. "I don’t really hide behind my lyrics. I don’t really sing something that I don’t believe in or that is not going to happen or that I want to happen, so it’s all things that I really believe in. There are no boundaries to my music; if I want to do a reggae song, I’ll do a reggae song tomorrow. I feel like I want to embrace music to its fullest potential and want everyone to have fun with it and realize you can escape for three minutes."
And when it comes to those Rihanna comparisons, Ora says, "I take it as such a compliment because we’re from the same team and family, so it’s an obvious comparison but it’s a cool one. She’s so cool and she’s the best at what she does. It’s a compliment more than anything."
