Rita Ora for Harper’s Bazaar UK January 2013

Rita Ora appears in the January 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, of which Sienna Miller graces the cover.

The British singer, who is no doubt one of the breakout musicians of 2012, smoulders in her photoshoot wearing a Stella McCartney jumpsuit and Maison Martin Margiela jewels styled with her Alexander McQueen black-and-white tuxedo, channelling her inner tomboy.

In her interview, she addresses fame, her exaggerated style, and her debut album ‘ORA’, and she explains what it’s like to perform in front of 50,000 with Chris Martin.

See the full photoshoot and interview in the ‘Body Issue’ of Harper’s Bazaar, which is out now.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On the music she listened to growing up: “Growing up I loved Beyoncé and Gwen Stefani because they were honest girls, but people always need a new role model relevant to them. I find it exciting that girls have really connected with me and my music and that I have the power to change someone’s life in three minutes, to wake them up.”

On performing with Chris Martin: “Performing in front of 50,000 people was such a great confidence-booster. Me and Chris Martin are similar onstage – we don’t do the same thing twice. It made me feel like I could take over the world.”

On her boy-girl style: “I love flamboyancy and glamour and elegance. I love that over-exaggerated style. I’m a boy girl. I love my trainers and mixing comfort with sleek, clean lines.”

On collaborating with her favourite British band, Mumford & Sons: “I would love to do a collaboration with them. Coming from the UK feels like the coolest thing in the world right now.”
