Lauded for her taut physique, striking looks and idiosyncratic style, the Kosovo-born, London-raised artist has been regarded as one of the most prolific fashion icons of today’s youth generation.
With a sophomore album looming ahead, it appears that Ora has been making headlines for everything but her music as of late. So, while we continue to familiarize ourselves with all her past music endeavors, we’ve rounded up some of Rita Ora’s most celebrated collaborations that helped put her on the map.
CK One, Spring/Summer 2011When Calvin Klein launched its first-ever unisex fragrance, ck One, back in 1994, the brand unveiled a searing black-and-white ad campaign that featured some of the era’s most influential youth figures, such as Kate Moss, Stella Tennant and Jenny Shimizu. In 2011, the American fashion house decided to expand its ck One imprint into a full lifestyle brand, which was followed by a campaign that resurrected its ’94 predecessor by enlisting the shoot’s original team, including photographer Steven Meisel and creative director Fabien Baron.
Capturing the modern youth psyche that defined ck One’s now-iconic images, the CK team casted a series of burgeoning “it girl” talent that Baron described as “young, cool, interesting, and charming for what they represent to people,” which included soft grunge starlet Sky Ferreira and then-19-year-old Rita Ora.
