The 'Shine Ya Light' singer has been signed to a new deal by the 'Vogue' star for her teen fashion line.
Rita Ora has been announced as the new face of Madonna's Material Girl fashion collection in a reported £500,000 deal.
The 'R.I.P.' singer confirmed the news on her Instagram account this week, alongside a picture of her with the 'Girl Gone Wild' singer.
Rita was rumoured to be close to signing a deal to replace the brand's current face Georgia May Jagger last month, and has now officially confirmed the deal.
"Joining forces with Madonna & Lola!" Rita posted last night (11th Jine). "It's Official Ritabots - I'm the new face of @MaterialGirl.

It is believed Rita's involvement came about through Madonna's 16 year-old daughter Lourdes, who works with her mother on the fashion line, after she introduced the 'Radioactive' star to Madonna.
"Lourdes has been a fan of Rita for a while and has been to many of her gigs," a source told The Sun last month. "She persuaded her mum to see her.
"They met at the Met Ball in New York last week and Madonna admired Rita's attitude so signed the idea off," the source explained. "Rita jumped at the chance because she's such a fan of the Queen of Pop.
Madonna's Material Girl line is a teenage targeted fashion range that launched back in 2010 with an eighties spin on its clothing.
Rita Ora had been rumoured to be considering plans to launch a collection with her best friend, and Burberry model, Cara Delevingne.
