Courtesy of The ThreadWe were lucky enough to catch up with style mavens Karmin and Rita Ora in The Rolling Stone Rock Room at Studio Paris in Chicago for Lollapalooza. The two singers are both finalists for Rolling Stone's Women Who Rock contest, but we're much more interested in what they were wearing. Typical. Karmin wore a canary yellow crop top and studded army green short shorts but it's her signature coif that has us reaching for the hairspray. The "Brokenhearted" singer is a master of perfect, shiny waves and massive volume. To get the same look, we recommend using Fekkai's Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray and a curling iron like this clampless Conair curling wand. The lack of a clamp will ensure a creaseless curl like the singer's.
Courtesy of The ThreadThe other finalist, Rita Ora, is a native Brit who's making waves across the pond and is even getting comparisons to Rihanna. Currently she's touring as Coldplay's opening act and we have no doubt that she'll be a headliner in no time. We're obsessed with her "more is more" style philosophy and her omnipresent sneakers and ruby red lips. To get a pout as lovely as Rita's, try Dolce & Gabbana's classic lipstick in Iconic. And don't forget to wear every bracelet you own.
We'll be keeping an eye on these two up-and-comers, just make sure that you do the same. We'll have interviews with the two artists next month and be sure to vote for your favorite for Rolling Stone's Women Who Rock contest in the meantime!
