Miss Rita certainly got her rough edges smoothed out for the cover of Glamour UK, didn’t she? And we’re not talking about Photoshop.
Rita Ora covers the January 2013 issue of Glamour UK magazine in a Christian Dior magazine photographed by Walter Chin.
On her new found fame: “This girl came up and said ‘Rita – I love your song,’ and it felt so good. That was the best Big Mac I’ve ever eaten. Now I get recognized a lot more, but that’s OK. In fact, it’s great.”
On getting compared to Rihanna: “It’s just so unnecessary. The most unnecessary thing I’ve ever heard, actually. I mean, last time I checked, I’ve been blonde since I was 14 years old. My inspiration has always been from old-school, classic women, so I don’t take any notice of that.”

Her slightly harder persona has been smoothed out and papered over with something much girlier and more traditional. Not that we’re shocked or offended. It’s Glamour, after all, and any gal who agrees to do the cover should know going into it that she’s going to wind up looking conventionally pretty by the time it’s all over. She looks cute. It’s just that without the cover blurb, we wouldn’t have known it was her.
Having said that, we love the dress.
