Rita Ora’s style has always been a bit quirky, but it works!

For the August/September issue of Complex magazine, the bleached blonde singer rocks a pink bandana-inspired set by Opening Ceremony for adidas Originals on the cover, but her style really shines in the accompanying photo spread.

 

The Zoe McConnell-photographed spread is schoolhouse inspired, which makes perfect sense for the back-to-school season upon us.

Check out some choice excerpts from the Roc Nation princess’ interview:

On performing: 

“I get nervous before shows and then I’m just like, OK—let’s go,” she explains later. “It’s like, you can’t fuck it up now ’cause everybody’s watching you. It’s more of a rush—like an adrenaline high.”

Rita goes on to talk about her style: 

“I’m like a dude,” Rita says, despite ample evidence to the contrary. “Jordans are my favorite. I wear them all the time for shows. I can get girly-girly when I want to, but I can’t perform in heels. I would bust my face open on stage and we don’t want that.

 

Rita also talked a bit about her relationship with Rob Kardashian:

“I mean, it’s not really a relationship. It’s not that intense. He’s a cool guy. We’re close. We’re good friends. I got his back and he’s got mine. To me, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from—if you’re a good person and you got my back, I got yours. It’s that easy for me.”

You can head over to Complex for the full interview, but be sure to pick up the issue when it gets released later this month. In the meantime, you can check out the behind-the-scenes video of the cover photo shoot below!
