Rita Ora is the new face of DKNY.

The 22-year-old singer, whose best friend and ''wifey'' Cara Delevingne is currently representing the up-market brand, was mobbed by fans who gathered to watch her shoot her first campaign for DKNY's resort 2014 collection in New York City yesterday (30.07.13).

Rita wrote on Twitter: ''Thank you bots for coming out!! Today was awesome you always crack me up! Didn't even feel like work I love you! More then you'll ever know.''

Rita was seen posing in an iconic yellow taxi in Manhattan while clutching a blue handbag.

The stunning blonde hit the gym earlier in the day to make sure her body was toned for the shoot.

She tweeted: ''Good morning. Hitting the gym then we do a HUGE photoshoot in the middle of Times Square! Come and say hi! 12pm! It's going down!!''

Rita and Cara hosted a party for DKNY in London in June to launch the brand's Artworks project and the singer took to the stage with her best friend dancing around her.
