With a handful of amazing singles, unforgettable live performances, and a new modeling contract under her belt, 2012 has been an absolutely epic year for Rita Ora. We’re not exactly fortune-tellers, but we’re still willing to place bets that 2013 is going to be equally as awesome for Jay-Z’s Roc Nation protege. The U.K. singer already has one foot firmly planted in the future, with two magazine cameos for January, showing off just HOW versatile the star really is. The 22-year-old shows her girlier side on the cover of the new issue of Glamour UK working a sweepy side ponytail, a floral Christian Dior shirtdress, and not a sneaker in sight (!). It might be a different Rita than the one we’re used to obsessing over for her kooky-cool style, but the girl pulls off this pretty femininity perfectly. Almost as perfectly as she does the menswear-inspired ensembles for Harper’s Bazaar UK, we might add. Because let’s be honest: two Ritas are ALWAYS better than one.
Leave it to the pop star to prove that even a typically masculine pieces like tuxedos can be JUST as sultry as LBDs. She’s seriously smoldering in the glossy, decked out in a white jumpsuit by Stella McCartney and Martin Margiela jewels. We love how she’s looking totally glamorous (red lips, sleek hair, dead-on expression), but still manages to show her general bad-assery with her prominently placed arm tattoo. And this, Rita, is exactly why we love you.
