Girl crushing over Kylie Jenner’s Instagram Christmas selfie, Rita Ora reposted the snap exclaiming, “How gorgeous is she? My fave in RITAORA X.”
Kylie Jenner’s Instagram photo showed the celeb dressed in Rita Ora X Originals for Adidas, while standing in front of her beautiful sparkling silver Christmas decorations. Ora knows Kylie Jenner well—she spent a lot of time with the Kardashian/Jenner family while dating Rob Kardashian in 2012.
Ora clearly doesn’t harbor any resentment towards the family, despite her messy breakup with Rob. Reposting the Instagram photo was both a statement about Kyle Jenner’s beauty, and a promotion for her clothing design collaboration with Adidas, Rita Ora X Originals.
Ora has been collaborating with Adidas since 2014, and recently posted an Instagram photo of herself styling an outfit from her newest collection.
Ora was also recently named the new host of America’s Next Top Model, replacing long-time host and executive producer Tyra Banks. Fans are dived about the decision to replace an experienced supermodel with a singer who has little modeling experience.
The 26-year-old is hoping to her new role raises her profile in the U.S. after making a mark with her recent role as Mia Grey in the Fifty Shades movie franchise.
Rita Ora, New Host on America’s Next Top Model
With fans divided over the decision to replace America’s Next Top Model host Tyra Banks with Rita Ora, the singer & actress has a lot of work ahead to win over longtime fans of the show.
People don’t like change, but with Ora’s experience in showbiz—and her own makeup line in collaboration with Rimmel London—she does know a thing or two about beauty. Many fans want to know what Rita Ora’s beauty secrets are, and luckily, Vogue sat down with Ora to ask about some of her makeup tips and to look inside her makeup bag.
Ora gave the magazine a makeup tutorial, and discussed some of her favorite products and how she applies them, “Red lips make me feel like a superstar. I feel like I’m going somewhere fabulous, even when I’m not.
I rely on my Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks – they keep my lips super-soft and the colors are amazing. I like changing it up – I just cut my hair off and started doing a smoky eye. I’m a chameleon in all aspects of my life – my music, my wardrobe, my beauty. I can do red-carpet glamour and go all-out grunge the next day.”
Ora also spoke with Vogue about her makeup look for off-duty days, “I try to go makeup free when I’m not working – my skin gets clogged up so easily. I put on the Caudalie Glycolic Peel, three times a week – I use it like moisturizing cream! It’s my desert-island beauty product.”
With all this beauty knowledge and her drive to succeed in the U.S., we have no doubt that Rita Ora will win America’s Top Model fans over in no time!
