Rita Ora on the cover of September’s ASOS Magazine.

It’s been a month since we first learned that ASOS had snagged U.K. songbird and our girl crush of the moment Rita Ora for the brand’s magazine, and we’ve been stalking the social media front ever since for a glimpse of the new issue. And finally-finally– it’s hereeee! The London-based retailer just premiered the cover on its Facebook page this morning, and it’s every bit as awesome as we’d hoped. Rita Ora looks stunning in a plaid-printed top, a ripped mini, and, the piece de resistance, a studded and bejeweled denim jacket. The result is a wonderfully out-there mashup of ’90s grunge motifs and modern day style…the best of both worlds has never been cooler.
If the jacket looks familiar, it’s probably because ASOS had hinted that the topper would be making a cameo in the cover shoot back in June, posting photos of the embellished denim and fabric piece on Instagram. It’s a custom-made creation crafted only for Miss Ora herself, which unfortunately means we can’t snag it in stores like the rest of the outfit (which you can buy this fall). But that’s fine with us, because now we’ve finally peeped the front page we KNOW that the clothes in the rest of the issue are bound to be equally as amazing. The September issue of ASOS Magazine will officially debut in several weeks, so stay tuned for more sneak peeks here. In the meantime, can more magazines put Rita on the cover, please?
