You'd be forgiven for doing a double take when you see this snap of an adorable brunette beauty. No, it's not a mini J-Lo or Zoe Kravitz's long-lost sister - it is, in fact, our very own Rita Ora. Isn't she a cutie?
The songstress is barely recognisable in all her bare-faced glory with not a blonde hair extension or slick of lippy in sight. Rita took to Instagram to share the retro picture yesterday, captioning it with 'HA...little Rita'. N'aww! She's the latest star to treat her followers to a flashback - her BFF Cara Delevingne has become a pro before-they-were-famous gems - and Lord knows we can't enough of them.
Since taking Planet Pop by storm (and making Cara her wifey), La Ora has famously nailed a statement beauty look that consists of peroxide blonde hair, lashings of red lipstick and flicky black eyeliner. The 22-year-old was originally inspired by Gwen Stefani's ghetto gorgeous look and the pared-back photo reveals the extend of Rita's glam-formation into the popstrel we know and love today.
The question is: do you prefer Rita dolled up or toned down? As much as we appreciate a set of falsies, we reckon Rita looks just as fab without a jot of makeup on her pretty little face. And having seen her pre-dye job, we're championing a return to brunette too. But what say you?
