“I’m lucky to have friends in this industry, and I thought maybe if I call them and we create a credible panel and give a different perspective of America’s Next Top Model, I could actually be the host,” she explains. “I’m not here to tell them what to do. I’m here to show them that they can do this, too. I’m an example of what you can achieve because it’s worked.”

Ora is keeping very busy these days. She has a new collection with Adidas, a capsule collection with  Italian lingerie label Tezenis, a role in the film Fifty Shades Darker, her role as spokesperson for Rimmel and she will release an album early next year. This will be her first album since her split from Jay Z’s Roc Nation.

The Albanian star says of fashion, “If I could dress like a dude every day I would. But I love beauty. I like being beautiful, but I like doing it in my way. I think that’s what’s important.” But whats the one thing she’ll never wear? Ballet flats. “I just find them so unflattering. It looks like you dipped your foot halfway in goo and then pulled it out. Where’s the support? Where’s the structure? Where’s the sexiness of it? At least a sneaker is sexy.”
