Fashionista Spotlight: Rita Ora

Kosovan-born beauty, Rita Ora, is making waves in the music industry as one of Roc Nation's newest artists on the scene. With #1 hits such as the party-starting, "How We Do" and the more edgy, "RIP" featuring fellow Brit artist, Tinie Tempah, Rita is a girl-on-the-move who is sure to turn major heads in the music industry.

Not only is she musically talented, but this rising star is also making major statements in the fashion department too, making her our Fashionista of the day.

 Check out some of my favorite looks below by her and learn how you too can rock some of Rita's edge too!

The first look that she is debuting here is a pretty casual and edgy look. Rita is wearing a graphic tee underneath a studded bright pink, leather jacket paired with leather pants and black Converse sneakers. This look is perfect for any nonchalant street-cruising that you plan on doing if you wish to make a subtle but yet noticeable statement. For a more everyday take on the outfit, keep the bright item amongst your shoes by pairing it with any vivid-colored sneaker along with leather jeggings but keep the bright-colored jacket, and only wear a grey or white tee on the inside.

This next look you'll love if your the type of person who prefers to steer a little further away from wearing colorful clothing all around. This outfit works because it portrays an all round glam and classy look without being too overbearing. Rita does this outfit major justice by keeping this lace satin dress informal by adding the zesty touch in her white sneaker heels. If you wish to portray this look just as well as she does, wear either a black ruffled top paired with a sequined or button-studded, black sequin, high-waisted shorts or with a simple, black-laced sleeved dress. For an everyday look, and if high heels just don't work for you, look for high-top all white sneakers to pair it with, or if you really want to stand out, pair this outfit with neon-colored sneakers for a pop of spice! Side Note: This outfit will look smashing with a pair of pastel-colored hoop or studded earrings (choose colors like pastel blue, pink or purple)

I really like this look because it has a very feminine, 50's-style inspired feel that makes it appropriately flirty. To successfully duplicate this look, look for a floral print knot-tied top and  a sheer red waist, swing skirt. For shoes, pair this outfit with a metallic-colored bow flat or for more edge, a grey wedged bootie.

This next look I like to caption as 'Tomboy-Chic'. Rita is rocking an over-sized graphic sweater dress paired with the same white sneaker heels pictured before and a black and yellow-imprinted beanie and ombre shades. You too can rock this 'Tomboy-Chic' look by looking for a similar graphic sweater dress only pair it differently with graphic or floral print sneakers for a touch of girly. The beanie option is favorable too as it completes and compliments the look very well giving it a tasteful 'skater-chick' accent.

When it comes to her favorite fashion labels, Rita says that, "I wear a lot of things! Some young labels to bring out my tomboy side like Trapstar and Billionaire Boys Club. Then the more sophisticated side, like Helmut Lang and Chanel and Calvin Klein. I love masculine cuts with suits and chunky jewellery. My hair is so glam it balances it out, and it’s comfy! I'm in love with my Christian Louboutin lace-up flats at the moment, too."
On creating her own line, Ora admits that, "I would love to! That would be so much fun, I think any girl would love their own label! We all look in our wardrobe and think 'I wish I had this to wear right now, that would be perfect!'"
