A History Of Rita Ora And Cara Delevingne’s Friendship

When two of the fastest rising stars in the game become BFFs, you know immediately this is not going to be your average friendship. There’s no doubt that Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne share the same undeniable connection as we all do with our girlfriends, but throw that crackling, bubbly, hard to define “It” quality into the mix? We’re talking parties with Rihanna, hangouts with Iggy, and luckily for the rest of us, they document every bonding sesh on Instagram (thanks, y’all!) so we can live vicariously through them. The model and pop singer first linked up at a music festival last summer and have been inseparable ever since, supporting each other at Fashion Week, backstage at concerts, and popping up at birthdays. They’re not slowing down career-wise anytime soon, either— Cara’s reportedly the new face of YSL Cosmetics and Rita’s prepping for her U.S. album release.

Recently these two ingenues sealed their famous friendship in the only way they knew how…by simultaneously tweeting a photo of their very first magazine photoshoot together by Rankin. So until we get more details and can finally see the spread ourselves, there’s no better time for a trip down Cara and Rita memory lane. LET’S DO THIS.

Shot by famed U.K. photographer Rankin, both girls tweeted out this black and white portrait earlier this week. Rita said, “No words. From one bad b**** to another. Thank you RANKIN….more comin hehehe.” OK, we officially CAN’T WAIT.

Cara’s tank top look familiar? Yep, it’s courtesy of Dimepiece LA and “officially” comes stamped with “Ain’t No Wifey.” But Rita’s given the pic a photoshop tweak staking her claim on Cara, and hey— we’re not mad.

Rihanna’s not the only selfie star, you guys. These two are total pros, as evidenced by this photo from December, starring Rita wearing one of her signature beanies and Cara rocking a snapback.

Cara posted this photo a month ago, saying “Love my boo @ritaora.” Everyone all together, now…awwww! #CuteOverload

After Rita, Cara, and model Jourdan Dunn hung out at the British Fashion Awards last month, they snapped this photo. Power trio, much?

Cara visited Rita on her birthday in November wearing a whole new kind of birthday suit- an animal onesie. This is only one of the MANY times Cara’s worked the fleece jumper, and if there’s anyone who can convince us to buy one ourselves, it’s a supermodel.

Speaking of power trios, this is yet another we’d die to be a part of. Rita posted this photo of Iggy, Cara and Rita all hung out after Rita and Iggy’s December New York City show, and is anyone else having a major case of FOMO? We love how each of the girls is dressed in her own signature style— Cara in tomboyish camo and a snapback, Iggy with her sleek ponytail, and Rita donning crazy cool monkey shades— but together it’s an absolute explosion of awesomeness.
