Rita Ora is gracing the pages of GLAMOUR magazine!
In the August issue of the magazine, Ora discusses the importance of standing out above the crowd and making your own lasting impression.
Check out highlights from her interview below!
On nail art:
“Nail art is definitely not over. I like having a little something that catches people’s eye. I love that as women, we can decorate ourselves like Christmas trees—well, not exactly like that but the same idea. We can put makeup on, do things to our hair. So why not?”
On dressing up:
“Some people are intimidated to wear a bold lip or eye, but I think it’s nice to stand out. I was such a tomboy as a kid; I was on the football team. But now I love dressing up and putting on makeup.”
On her beauty skill:
“What I’m really proud of is being able to put lipstick on without a mirror. (Red lips are my thing; I honestly can’t be me without them.) I could apply it on a roller coaster! I’m going to film myself doing that and put it on YouTube. Just wait.”
On how powerful perfume can be:
“I wear fragrance all the time. It’s more about how it makes me feel, rather than other people noticing. When you smell good, you feel more confident. It heightens the senses and activates them. I think that’s really empowering as a female.”
On her style:
“There are so many hot girls out there; you have to make an impression. We’re doing a braided pigtail thing tonight.”
Kate Upton covers ELLE UK’s biggest fashion book of the year!
The September issue features Upton modeling pieces from Christopher Kane, Dior, Alaïa, Chloé, Prada and Burberry. She was photographed by Matt Jones for the shoot.
“When I first started modelling, I was a normal catalogue model,” Kate explains.
“Then, I became a woman, and I was really excited about becoming a woman. Because I’m from Florida, it’s all about being in bathing suits. It’s a different view of beauty there. You are ugly if you don’t have a curvy body. And I didn’t have one, and then I got one, and thought, ‘Yessss!'”
She continued, “And then people say: “Oh, wow, you’re healthy.”
“And you’re like, ‘Wait – what? I’ve been begging for this body my whole life!'”

During a recent interview for Popcorn with Peter Travers on ABC , McDonald discussed a time with she tried to commit suicide.
“When I was (in college) at Julliard, I had a suicide attempt,” Audra admitted. “I tried to slit my wrist.”
McDonald, 44, says the staff at Julliard pulled her out of her depression. “When someone is suicidal, one of the first things you have to do is to protect them from themselves,” Audra explained.
“They had a mental health facilitator there, a therapist there and they checked me into a mental health hospital, where I was for a month and got me the help I needed.”
“Julliard was like … ‘We think that that musical theater thing is more for you anyway. That seems to be where you’re the happiest,'” she continued. “I went out and did ‘Secret Garden’ and then I came back and finished Julliard.”
McDonald is now married to actor Will Swenson.
