rita ora cavalli 3

Rita Ora continues to make major moves in the fashion world while establishing herself as a sex symbol. On top of her own line of makeup with Rimmel London and a three-season collaboration with adidas, the Kosovan-British beauty has been unveiled as the new face of Roberto Cavalli. Opting for a classy look and even sporting Marilyn Monroe-style hair, the 23-year-old singer looks absolutely stunning in these shots for the Fall/Winter 2014 campaign. It’s no wonder rapper Ricky Hil (the son of Tommy Hilfiger) is rumored to be after that Calvin Harris rebound spot.

Fashion heads can start saving to break the bank on the upcoming fall/winter 2014 season of the second A.P.C. x Kanye West collaboration. Aftering having a succesful first round, the powerhouses teamed up again to release some very clean and simple military-inspired pieces. A.P.C.’s founder Jean Touitou recently talked to Style.com about the collection before it’s officially released on July 17.

Style: How did the process of working with Kanye evolve over time?
JT: The process was easier the second time because we have learned more from each other, and then also we stopped by the military archive. It was surprisingly easier the second time, except at the end.
