British pop star, Rita Ora, is turning heads and now getting noticed in America for more than her outlandish outfits at awards ceremonies. Her career originally catapulted into the American limelight for her collaboration with former boyfriend Calvin Harris on the popular single. “I Will Never Let You Down.” Unfortunately the relationship didn’t last, but we’re happy to say the pop princess survived the very ugly and public breakup and will be gracing us with her beauty on the November 2014 issue of Teen Vogue.
Teen Vogue opted to market two different covers and we honestly can’t tell you which one we prefer. Both covers are shot by Italian fashion photographer Giampaolo Sgura, and Rita looks better than ever.
In one cover, Rita poses in an edgy Michael Kors yellow brown and white camouflage sweatshirt. Her gorgeous sun kissed locks are highlighted against a vibrant background that looks almost like watercolours. It’s hard to imagine that winter is coming.
For the second cover, Rita looks sporty and ready to take on fall. She is seated casually at a park bench with a basket ball in the foreground and friends in the background. She’s sporting a red, black and white letterman jacket, but her radiant smile steals the show.
Her cover story has Rita opening up about her recent heartbreak and breakup with one of the music industry’s hottest collaborators, Calvin Harris. It’s a feeling girls of all ages can relate to all too well. Rita handles her feelings with grace and elegance, giving teenage girls just learning how to navigate their emotions a good example.
Focusing on her success in business, Rita Ora is teaching young woman today to put value on their accomplishments rather than on the success of a relationship with a boy. This 23 year old pop singer is wiser than women much older than herself when she speaks directly on the breakup. She acknowledges how much it hurts to break from someone you love and the desire to have someone who wants to appreciate you, but also states that she’s confident that she will find love again with someone else.
Rita Ora has too much on her plate to be fretting over silly boys. This beautiful pop singer has campaigns with the likes of Roberto Cavalli and Adidas Originals, not to mention the DKNY MYNY fragrance. We haven’t seen enough of her yet and we can’t wait to see more.
If you go on over to the Teen Vogue website, you can get a glimpse of what’s to come. They’ve posted a sneak peak behind the scenes video for the November 2014 issue editorial. While you are there, don’t miss out on their most recent video staring Rita Ora where she gets personal and talks about the racy Fifty Shades of Grey, gives advice on following your dreams and discusses her addiction to Instagram.
Check out the latest issue of Teen Vogue when it hits new stands on October 28th to learn more about Rita’s music and plans for the future.
