Rita Ora literally stopped traffic yesterday when she lit up New York’s Times Square to model DKNY’s Resort 2014 collection as the new face of the brand.
The 22-year-old Radioactive singer, who is already the poster girl for Madonna’s Material Girl clothing range, is simply adding to her already super stylish CV with her latest collaboration with the iconic US fashion house.
Giving her fans a heads up about her action-packed city-based shoot, Rita tweeted: “Good morning. Hitting the gym then we do a HUGE photoshoot in the middle of Times Square! Come and say hi! 12pm! It’s going down!”
Showcasing some seriously glamorous high-end pieces including a cute black dress and mesh jacket and sequin gold skirt with a sexy side slit, Rita pounded the New York pavements giving it some serious Ora swag in the sizzling shots.
The Serbian-born singer’s new modelling contract sees her following in model ‘wifey’ Cara Delevingne‘s footsteps, who did a similar shoot in NY for the label last year. And it may even have been Cara who hooked her friend up with the brand after Rita and Cara stormed the stage together to perform at the DKNY party in London last month.
The pair were recently reported to have fallen out following a backstage blow-up at the bash, but both have since taken to Twitter to deny the whispers that their lady romance is on the rocks. Rita tweeted: “I don’t know what all these stupid stories are about but Im always going to have my best friend @Caradelevingne I love you!”
We’re gunning for a Rita/Cara DKNY catwalk duet next. Someone make it happen!
