Although Rita Ora claims to be primarily influenced by Gwen Stefani when it comes to fashion, she is very much in the mould of Rihanna in this sexy shoot which took place yesterday in Brooklyn, New York for Rita’s new video.
In addition to Stefani, Ora has drawn great inspiration stylistically from Marilyn Monroe and Daphne Guinness in this shoot with a play on the fresh, girly look that Rita has adopted.
Rita worked her cool London swag with an alluring cutout swimsuit, an oversized camouflage jacket, studded denim rucksack and platform ankle boots.
The swimsuit is a typical choice for swimwear shoots as it is both practical and fashionable, but by pairing it with these other pieces, Rita changes from a beach goddess to a cool kid about town. We almost imagine that she has just finished swimming and is travelling back to the other side of town in the hot sun. The retro sunglasses tie in with Rita’s love of vintage fashion and add a playful note to the outfit.

Rita’s second look is much more difficult to pull-off. She seems to channel Olivia Newton-John in this Grease-esque get-up which definitely gives us chills.
The bright pink leather jacket makes Rita stand out against the bright blue backdrop, the pastel shades are bang on trend for this season and her change purse belt is the cutest accessory I’ve seen all year. The colourful slingbacks add that finishing touch of ’60s glamour and make Rita look good enough to eat!
