According to a new report the songstress will replace her model friend Georgia May Jagger as the face of Madonna’s clothing line — and she signed a hefty contract to go along with her new title! Congrats.
Ever since Madonna and her daughter, Lola, dreamed up the Material Girl collection they’ve enlisted a slew of edgy and stylish stars to front the line — and they’re adding another pretty face to the list! Rita Ora has been tapped to star in the brand’s campaign, replacing her model pal Georgia May Jagger. The 22-year-old songstress reportedly met Madonna and her daughter, Lourdes, at the Met Gala on May 6. Apparently Lola is a major Rita fan and set up the encounter at the Met Gala on May 6 — and much to her daughter’s delight Madge hit it off with the 20-year-old star!
Rita Ora Material Girl:
They met at the Met Ball in New York last week and Madonna admired Ora’s attitude so signed the idea off,” a source tells The Sun. Aside from Rita’s model pal Georgia May Jagger, former faces of the brand include Taylor Momsen and Kelly Osbourne. “Rita jumped at the chance because she’s such a fan of the Queen of Pop,” the source says.
The songstress is having a very fashionable year. Aside from gearing up to front the ’80s-inspired Material Girl collection, Rita is the face of Superga and has covered a slew of mags including Elle and Glamour.
We’re so happy to hear that Rita hit it off with Madonna and her mini-me! I wonder if Rita will ask her BFF Cara Delevingne for some major model tips before she starts posing.
The collection launched in 2010 and is available at Macy’s in the US and Canada. Additionally, the brand is due to arrive in England in June.
What do you think of the news? Do you think Rita’s a good fit for the collection?
