Rita Ora closed the DKNY show at New York Fashion Week. The ‘R.I.P.’ singer made her modelling debut over the weekend as she strutted her stuff on the catwalk in a monochrome ensemble emblazoned with the DKNY logo.
The 23-year-old star who recently replaced her best friend Cara Delevingne as the face of the label – showed no sign of nerves as she smiled and struck a series of over-the-top poses at the end of the runway to the soundtrack of the Beastie Boys’ hit ‘Fight For Your Right’.
Rita had big shoes to fill since top models Chanel Iman and Karlie Kloss walked the catwalk just ahead of her, but she was an instant hit with the audience, who included Kelly Osbourne, Disney starlet Bella Thorne and Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis.
DKNY’s spring 2014 show marked the brand’s 25th anniversary and the vibrant collection was in keeping with its youthful and sporty aesthetic. Standout looks included colourful flare dresses, baggy jeans and crop tops, with the company’s logo featuring in abundance.
Rita later turned heads as she left the event in yet another killer monochrome DKNY look, a 90s inspired matching shirt and trouser combination.
