British singer Rita Ora graces the cover of ELLE UK May 2014 issue in a shot by photographer Thomas Whiteside.

On the cover of the magazine the singer goes topless, dressed just in a Dior skirt revealing her tattoo, ‘Rosetta’ .In an interview for the magazine she explains : “It’s based on an original piece by Alberto Vargas, who was an incredible illustrator in the 1930s. He was one of the creators of the pin-up image. That’s our build, our power. That’s why I was obsessed with it; learning what men don’t understand about women and what women don’t understand about men. I was obsessed with the painting a long time ago, and then I got it done six months ago. I just love pretty things, whether it is art, a song or a pair of shoes.’
