Rita Ora has been tapped to front Thomas Sabo’s whimsical new campaign.

The Let You Love Me hitmaker has signed a two-year deal with the German jewellery firm, with the gig seeing her following in the footsteps of Katy Perry, Poppy Delevingne, and Georgia May Jagger.

Now, Rita is starring in the brand’s spring/summer 2020 marketing imagery, titled Magic Garden, with one snap showing her posing in a sheer lilac top while surrounded by wildflowers, and another depicting her modelling a bracelet with her name on it and a dragonfly necklace.

“Spring awakening creates the desire for something new,” she commented. “Have the courage to be yourself and make your look your message. A style is perfect when it perfectly matches your look!”

The Magic Garden line includes jewellery and watches, including hero pieces such as the hummingbird, kaleidoscope, and dragonfly designs. There are also butterfly pendants, a pair of earrings shaped like rainbows, and charms featuring feather motifs.

The Thomas Sabo x Rita Ora Collection is now available.

Rita, 29, was named as the new global brand ambassador for the company last July and made her debut in the autumn/winter 2019 campaign.

“Rita Ora’s strength, passion, creativity and self-confident styling underline the long-term reorientation of global brand communication and the vision of the multi-faceted Thomas Sabo collections to make jewellery dreams come true for everyone,” a brand rep said in a statement at the time.

Cara Delevingne didn’t expect to form real friendships with fellow models because she didn’t think anyone would want to be pals with her.

The 27-year-old signed with a modelling agency 10 years ago and made her first catwalk appearance in 2011, before going on to walk for the likes of Burberry, Chanel, and Moschino.

Early on in her career, Cara became friends with Jourdan Dunn, Karlie Kloss, and Georgia May Jagger, and she was surprised due to the fact that she didn’t expect to make any true friends in the fashion industry.

“Honestly, I had low expectations for friends in this industry because: a) I didn’t think people would want to be my friend, and b) I didn’t know if making friends through this process would be fickle or seem not real. So I was pleasantly surprised!” she shared with Elle U.K. magazine.

The Suicide Squad actress explained that it took a while for her to become friends with Kendall Jenner as they didn’t speak to each other during the first few fashion shows.

“We had done a few shows together and didn’t say a word to each other. Eventually, we started talking and I was like, ‘Oh, you’re alright. We should hang out after this,” Cara continued. “She was like, ‘Alright, cool.’ It was very easy. I found that you automatically know if someone is trying to make an effort that isn’t real, and when a friendship seems contrived.”

Cara also recalled the advice Georgia, the daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, gave her when she was first getting recognised by photographers.

“(She) would say to me, ‘Cara, you can’t just walk out of a nightclub with your high heels in your hands. You need to look presentable; people are going to take photos!'” she commented. “And I thought, ‘No. No one wants to take my photo, don’t be ridiculous.’ Within a year, I was being papped everywhere, still with my shoes in my hands. Georgia would say, ‘Cara, what did I tell you?'”

Nathalie Emmanuel and Georgia May Jagger are fronting jewellery brand Pandora’s new campaign.

The Game of Thrones actress and the fashion model have been tapped to appear in the Danish company’s new Pandora Muses marketing imagery, which looks to celebrate self-expression and diversity.

Individual portraits depict each star posing for the camera while showing off delicate pieces from Pandora’s upcoming ranges, with the duo also seen in a group shot with fellow Pandora Muses, including dancer/actress Larsen Thompson, artist Tasya van Ree, influencer Margaret Zhang, and model Halima Aden.

“Our Pandora Muses represent the duality and diversity within and between every woman, as well as the values Pandora stands for: they’re diverse, approachable, inclusive, expressive, stylish, socially and environmentally responsible and, above all else, true to themselves,” said Vita Clausen, Pandora’s global PR director. “We’re extremely proud to work with this community building a tribe of inspirational women.”

In addition to the campaign, each of the women takes centre stage in a series of videos, in which they share stories, offer candid testimonials, and promote the places that have special significance to Pandora.

Regarding the collaboration, Larsen explained that she was thrilled to be working with women who she finds to be genuinely inspiring.

“Partnering with Pandora meant exploring a bolder side to myself and telling my story and doing so, alongside a diversely talented group of women that I’m honoured to call my muses,” the 18-year-old added.

Georgia May Jagger has been tapped to front Miu Miu’s new Ceremony campaign.

The London-based model, who is the daughter of Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger, has a close working relationship with the quirky Italian fashion label, having previously fronted the fall/ winter Other Conversations advertising and walked the runway in the resort 2019 show.

Now, Georgia is appearing in the marketing imagery for the brand’s latest capsule collection.

“Encapsulating the irreverent spirit of Miu Miu, Georgia May Jagger fluctuates between innocence and seduction in a new series shot by Emma Craft. Set against the backdrop of a rural dreamscape, the dual nature of the Miu Miu girl radiates in timeless photographs that document pieces from the brand’s Ceremony collection,” a Miu Miu representative said in a statement. “Timed to chime perfectly with the party season, Ceremony is a capsule that celebrates Miu Miu’s quintessential feminine signatures but always with a playfully subversive twist.”

One photo shows Georgia posing in a white dress with black sequin bow detailing and retro-style cat eye sunglasses, while another depicts the 27-year-old standing on a staircase in a silky black trouser and top combination, with the look accessorised with orange pumps and a red handbag.

The line also includes patent leather pumps, crystal headbands, and leather purses.

“Silk and lace, ribbons and bows, sequins and crystals embellish timelessly elegant pieces designed to be worn with ease and to facilitate a young woman’s life in a determinedly light-hearted manner,” the rep added. “The look is finished with ladylike purses suspended from polished chain shoulder straps, cat-eye sunglasses and Mary Jane pumps with a chunky heel worn, should the Miu Miu girl so desire, with knee-high socks.”

Items are priced from $215 – $3,540 (£170 – £2,795).

Richard Quinn made a triumphant return to London Fashion Week on Tuesday (19Feb19), a year after he was honoured with the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design by the Queen herself.

Showcasing a collection brimming with his signature penchant for typically British prints, including florals, cheques and houndstooth, Quinn recruited top models Adwoa Aboah and Georgia May Jagger to show off his latest work.

A procession of elegant coats made their way down the runway on the final day of London Fashion week, before giving way to flowing dresses with voluminous sleeves in bold prints and bright hues, showing that you don’t need to stick only to drab colours in the winter.

As the hems got shorter, the volume didn’t, with puffed shoulder detailing working well on skintight cocktail dresses and hints of black latex adding another dimension to the designs.

There were also a series of balloon skirts, fastened with bows and teamed with black velvet tops. Marabou feathers, full face scarves and tulle bustles completed the presentation.

Later in the day, Bethany Williams, who received the second Queen Elizabeth II Prize for Design, also showed.

Inspired by English city Liverpool and its progressive history in women’s empowerment for her Fall/ Winter 19 collection, Williams showed off a line of patchwork knits, boxy shirt jacket and matching trousers, and old denim pieces, sourced from Kent sorting factory Chris Carney Collections. Delicate line drawings appeared on some of the garments, like a white trousers and jacket combo modelled by Aboah, while others featured abstract paintings of Liverpool’s landscape.

As the show finished, Williams was presented with her award by the Duchess of Cornwall, who led a minute’s silence for Karl Lagerfeld.

Milan Fashion Week kicks off on Wednesday with shows from Gucci, Jil Sander and Alberta Ferretti, among others.
