L’Uomo Vogue first hit newsstands in 1968, a year or so before the Apollo 11 lunar landing. The intervening years of this men’s magazine’s lifetime have been collectively spent reaching for the stars. Enter Rita Ora, influencer extraordinaire who duly sprinkles stardust all over the May / June 2016 cover photographed by Francesco Carrozzini and styled by Patti Wilson. Rita speaks with L’Uomo Vogue in the cover story about her life, career, being named Honorary Ambassador to Kosovo in 2015, and more. “I’ve reached a point in my life where being ‘honest’ about my feelings, in both my personal relationships and in the creative sphere, is a non-negotiable part of who I am. Take it or leave it.” We’ll take it! Without any readily available pathway to interstellar space, Rita Ora provides the requisite star power to light up imaginations the world over.
