Rita Ora stays relevant by any means
The Albanian-Brit pop singer is the latest celeb to grace Clash Magazine’s cover and an additional editorial piece which puts her most recent photoshoot into focus. Though black and white photography is not the only thing to survive the depression era, Clash Mag really sells the “less is more” tagline by inciting Rita to lose her garms.
It was Morrissey who sang, “I haven’t got a stitch to wear,” when the nudie cover shot was first becoming an industry practice. Rita Ora, evidently the hotter commodity, jumped the queue ahead of Mozz, and his insistence of “non-sexual male nudity.” We’ll never know, will we?

Prevailing pop phoenix @ritaora is the fourth and final #CLASH109 cover star. — “I feel like I’ve just started, in the weirdest way. I know some people in the industry who I won’t name but who have messaged me to say, ‘You’re a b*dass for doing what you did.’ I earned a new found respect. Now, though, it’s time to put that stuff away and get this chapter going.” — Follow link in bio to buy now. — Interview by @alimkheraj. Cover shot in London by @matteaston.

The final photo edit is as tantalizing as it is cold and inhuman, like a Reboot character with a shapely figure. Rita bears it all except for her nipples, in a cross-legged pose. Other photos depict wearing transparent clothing and platform shoes. This Clash cover story does highlight the emerging trend of undergarments being worn as primary cover
