Rita Ora for ELLE Magazine's 'Women in Music' Issue

I told you last week that Adele is leading the cover for ELLE's Annual 'Women In Music' issue for May 2013. Well Rita Ora also has covers and the British singer looks amazing.

On this cover shot by Thomas Whiteside & styled by Joe Zee, Rita is wearing a pink CHANEL HAUTE COUTURE tulle, feather & organza high low hem dress & leather gloves. I am loving the Mickey Mouse hat that she is wearing on the second cover by PHILIP TREACY.

She just looks simply amazing on both covers. In the issue, Rita talks getting signed by Jay-z, her idols growing up, not allowing her record label to dictate her style & more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview & see more images from her feature. For more details, go to or pick up a copy when the issue hits newsstand on April 23rd.

On her big break when Jay-z signed her to his record label: 
"I didn't think in a million years that I'd fly to New York to meet one of the biggest music moguls of our time." 

On her childhood idols, 'The Spice Girl's: 
"I just remember watching them – not even meeting them – and I was completely mesmerized. It feels great to meet someone who is not human, but is."

On her red Marchesa gown at the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards:  
"I went up to [Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman] and said, 'Hi, I'm Rita. Nice to meet you. I need to wear your dress.' She was like, 'What dress?' They've got 10 million dresses. I said, 'Look, I have your dress as the screen saver on my phone. This red dress needs to be on my body.'"

On never allowing her record label to dictate her style:  
"That should never be allowed! It’s like somebody telling you what to sing."
