Rita Ora attends Franca Sozzani's memorial service

Rita Ora paid her respects to the late Franca Sozzani during her memorial service.

The 26-year-old singer took to Instagram on Monday (27.02.17) to share a black and white snap of herself at the service for the former editor-in-chief of fashion magazine Vogue Italia - who passed away in December 2016 at the age of 66 - which was held at the gothic Duomo cathedral.

Rita captioned the snap: "Honouring Franca Sozzani and her legacy today in Milan."

Also in attendance were the likes of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, fashion designer and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, models Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, and fashion designers Donatella Versace and Giorgio Armani.

Naomi, 46, shared her own picture of the late star on her Instagram account, and wrote: "#salutetoFranca this was your day !! You will always be in my heart and Mind Sleep with Angels (sic)"

According to a post made on Vogue's website, the service provided was a "Catholic religious service" which offered no "personal eulogies."

The article reads: "This was very much a Catholic religious service, and no personal eulogies were offered. Instead, Sozzani's son, Francesco Carrozzini, gave a reading--as did her niece and longtime close colleague at Italian Vogue Sara Maino.

"Among the congregation who heard them were far, far too many fashion notables to list in full, but just some included Giorgio Armani, Valentino Garavani, Sidney Toledano, Jonathan Newhouse, Anna Wintour, Donatella Versace, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Pierpaolo Piccoli, Christopher Bailey, and Sarah Burton.

"Maino's reading, taken from the Book of Qoheleth, was particularly affecting. It included these lines: 'No one can say/ That eyes have not had enough of seeing,/ Ears their fill of hearing./ What was, will be again,/ What has been done, will be done again,/ And there is nothing new under the sun.'"
