I feel like Rita Ora has been on the "brink of a big American breakthrough" for the past 3 years. Does the industry always take this long?
Nevertheless, she looks absolutely stunning in this spread for May 2013 issue of ELLE as shot by Thomas Whiteside. Joe Zee did an excellent job with the styling. Ms. Ora is one of three songstresses (the other two being Adele and Alicia Keys) in the specials "Women of Music" issue. I'm not sure which two of these shots will be the final Rita Ora cover but I love the whimsical play of both. Which every way they spin it, she looks absolutely magical and the spread was breathtaking.
