RITA ORA IN CHANEL HAUTE COUTURE - ELLE MAGAZINEI'm a big fan of Elle Magazine.  In fact, I rarely miss an issue.  At first glance of the May 2013 issue, something looked familiar.  It wasn't the beautiful Rita Ora who graces the cover of this "Women in Music" issue.  RITA ORA HANGS CHIC IN LAS VEGAS - THOSE FERRAGAMO BOOTS..SUEDE FOR DAYS! Ora is like lightning in the bottle these past few months.   She is everywhere! DOUBLE TAKE - RITA ORA FOR ELLE MAGAZINE INSPIRED BY VIKTOR & ROLF'S FLOWERBOMB?  The fashion world has annointed her the next "it" girl and designers are keeping her very well clothed.   In Las Vegas wearing Salvatore Ferragamo, in Basil Switzerland wearing Calvin Klein, & on the cover of Elle magazine - wearing Chanel Haute Couture!  You know you have arrived when they ask you to wear couture!

Flipping through the issue, I quickly realized why I was having a deja-vu.   This cover was heavily influenced by the iconic fragrance ad for FLOWERBOMB by Viktor & Rolf.  Maybe ELLE'S creative director -Joe Zee was inspired by the super cool design duo of V&R.   Maybe he was and didn't even realize?

Keep up with Rita Ora by clicking over to iTunes now.   This Jay Z protege is here to stay!
