Exclusive First Look: Rita Ora Gets Glam for Elle

If you’re wondering how you know Rita Ora, it may be because you’ve been hearing her music everywhere. Or because her style has been turning heads for months now. But here’s the reason she’s going to be really huge: she’s already landed her first major fashion cover: Elle‘s May “Women in Music” issue.

We have the first look at Ora’s two gorgeous covers. In the first, she’s wearing a pink Chanel Haute Couture gown with a Ken O’Rourke headpiece and her signature red lipstick; in the second she gets cheeky with a Calvin Klein bustier, Philip Treacy headpiece and makeup to match.

This is hardly Ora’s first foray into high fashion — though she did have to get a little aggressive to land the killer Marchesa gown she wore to the MTV Europe Music Awards.

Even though we didn’t see as many stars on the red carpet this week as last — it’s quiet in Hollywood this holiday season! — we still saw some strong trends emerge at various events. What were they? Let’s get to it!

Up: Pops of red. You can thank the holidays for this festive mini-trend, which we spotted on Hailee Steinfeld’s purse, Bella Heathcote’s dress and Rose Byrne’s jacket. Adding just a hint of the bold hue to your outfit is an easy way to look all holiday-y without going overboard.

What Type of Shoes Does Rita Ora Collect? (Hint: Definitely Not Louboutins)

We’re not claiming to be psychic, but apparently we are … well, sort of. A few months ago we dubbed Rita Ora fashion’s “next big thing,” and it looks like we were right: Jay-Z’s British protégé just made her U.S. magazine debut on the cover of Complex‘s August/September issue.

The stylish 21-year-old singer, who is signed to Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation and opened for Coldplay’s European tour, is well on her way to becoming as successful as Rihanna — a superstar she’s often compared to.

“Rita is the kind of artist who’s going to win by just being herself. When Rihanna came out we heard the Beyoncé comparisons,” Tyran “Ty-Ty” Smith, a partner in Roc Nation, tells Complex. “Now they’re saying the same thing about Rita, that she’s the new Rihanna. She just has to show them who she is and she will be fine.”

Ora embraces the notion. “I admire Rihanna,” Ora explains. “She works her ass off. She hasn’t had a break and she has given people hit after hit after hit. That work ethic and discipline is hardcore. That’s the kind of sh** that I want to do. That I will do.”
