All good things must come to an end and in Rita Ora’s case, the end comes sooner rather than later. She recently wrapped up her first season as host of “America’s Next Top Model” and, as it turns out, first also means last. Tyra Banks will be taking back the reigns next cycle for the show’s second season since making the switch over to VH1.

Rita Ora is celebrating the end of something special. Her fist season hosting VH1’s reincarnation of “America’s Next Top Model” came to a close on Wednesday night. India Gants was crowned the new season’s winner as Rita celebrated her victory on social media.
Rita posted a congratulations tweet for India and wrote she was “so proud” of all the contestants in the new season. She also spoke with Entertainment Weekly about what she felt like the show’s latest seasons changed and improved. “I feel like we accomplished a new outlook on what it takes to be a model in the modern world,” Rita said. “You can’t just be beautiful.”
“You have to be in control of how you’re portrayed and have a vision of who you want to be,” she continued. “Our current culture within this industry is no longer just about being beautiful and being able to walk. You have to be adaptable to everything: social media, businesses, working with brands, film, music.”
Rita implied that there will be a “next time” for her and the show, so it sounds like she’ll be back for another season.

Rita Ora was spotted on Monday in New York City. The singer and actress was on break from her third and newest title: host of “America’s Next Top Model.” While not exactly runway ready, Rita’s look was fresh as she paired big blonde hair and a classic red lip and a bright and frilly dress with a unique floral print.
It’s not the first time Rita’s been spotted in style out in the Big Apple, but this look was a little more wholesome than the last.
