Is it us or is Rita Ora quickly establishing herself as one of the hottest women on earth? Each major magazine spread is hotter than the next! In the September issue of GQ, Ora brings her sexy aura, courtesy of smoky eyes, leather pants, chunky platforms and an inventory of tattoos. She done stole our hearts.

As Ora preps the release of her debut, ‘Ora,’ on which she had three years to work, she is confident that the music buying public will connect with her music on a visceral level. “The public’s not stupid,” the astute ‘How We Do (Party)’ singer said. “You can tell an honest artist from one who’s just been given all their songs.”

In the behind-the-scenes video, Ora let’s the men’s mag see her collection of tattoos. She also calls London where her heart is since it’s where she was raised. She also reminded us that she loves 90′s hip-hop and Biggie Smalls, which is where she borrowed the lyrical hook of “party and bulls—” for ‘How We Do.’

As for skin ink, Ora said, “Tattoos are important and beautiful, they’re another form of art.” She has Aphrodite (the Greek goddess of love), her sister’s name, a circle and an anchor she did herself in L.A. etched onto her body. She also has a lot of words and phrases, like “Love” in red, sprinkled on her body.

Perhaps her coolest ink? The tatt that reads “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.”

Words to live by.

We love that Rita traded her usual crimson lip look for a softer, nude shade in this spread. She could not wear a drop of makeup and still knock our socks off.
