Rita Ora has confirmed that she is the new face of Madonna's teenage fashion line, Material Girl.

It's no secret that Rita is one hot fashionista who is always seen rocking the latest trends and some of the most exclusive designer pieces. And now, she will get the chance to mix her love of music with clothing, as she teams up with pop icon, Madonna, to help front her latest collection.

The 22-year-old songstress announced the happy news on her Instagram account yesterday (12 June) by posting a picture of herself standing alongside Madge while wearing various 'MG' pins on her white lather jacket.

Alongside the snap she wrote: "Joining forces with Madonna & Lola! It's Official Ritabots – I'm the new face of @MaterialGirl. #thisisamoment for me #icon #mymuse #argghhhhh #yeeeeaaahhhhhhh #excited :) :) :)"

In a deal reportedly worth £500,000, Rita will take over from model Georgia May Jagger, who is the current face of the fashion brand.

It is believed that the 'Shine Ya Light' singer first met Madonna after being introduced to her by Madge's daughter, Lourdes, who co-founded the Material Girl collection and is also heavily involved in the creative process behind the brand's 80s inspired clothing.

Apparently, Lourdes has been a fan of Rita's for some time and convinced her superstar mum that they should meet.

And of course Rita jumped at the chance to work with Madonna!

According to The Sun, Rita and Madge hit it off at the Met Ball in New York last month and the pair signed a deal straight away.

"Madonna admired Rita's attitude so signed the idea off," the source said.
