Rita Ora Is Ready for the Fashion World to Take Her Seriously

Rita Ora has always been stylish, but now she’s ready to go to the next level. The singer has collaborated with Adidas since 2014, the same sportswear brand that also recruited the likes of Raf Simons and Jeremy Scott to design its subsidiary lines, and now, she’s taking on a whole new challenge succeeding Tyra Banks as a host of America’s Next Top Model. She seems to be taking the new gig pretty seriously, judging by her new, upgraded wardrobe; in the past year, she’s become a welcome presence at Paris Couture and on the streets of New York. She’s alternately edgy, in Vetements and Gosha Rubchinskiy, and demurely preppy, in Oscar De La Renta and Tommy Hilfiger — a one-woman rolodex of fashion, proving she knows her designers. See a few of her best moments, here.
