Sita Abellán is now adding designer to her long list of badass careers
Most of us first met Galore’s newest Cover Girl, Sita Abellán, when Rihanna scouted her for the badass and iconic, “Bitch Better Have My Money,” music video.
If you don’t remember, rewatch the video and you can see Sita as a blunt cut blondie who shoves the trunk in the back of the car (aka the trunk with the kidnapped woman in it, lol).
After that, Sita blew up. Not just because of her performance in the music video, though. When fans went searching for Sita via social media, they found her inventive, creative, bold, and stylish Instagram – a page dedicated to her unique self.
Now, Sita is juggling multiple careers at once – not only is she still acting, she’s also nonstop DJing (in high demand), modeling, styling (because, hello, her style kills), and now, designing.
Sita recently released a collaboration she designed along with Faith Connexion, and you can buy it here. The collection features her signature color, a deep, electric blue, and it’s a mix of her fave things: DIY and high-end.
We got to sit down with the designer and Galore Cover Girl to discuss her newest collab with Faith, her best DJing gigs, and her beauty necessities. Check out below for the exclusive interview and photoshoot!

The colder weather is finally upon us! What are your winter makeup must haves?
My matte lipstick and my blue mascara from MAC Cosmetics.
Tell us more about your Faith Connexion collection? What was the inspo behind all of it!
I got inspired by the theme of 80’s girl groups! My initial style inspiration was the song “Typical Girl,” from one of the first female punk-rock bands called The Slits.
The pieces in the collection are black tulle leggings, a 90s-inspired poplin mini dress, a mesh and tulle robe, high-waisted stretch silk leather trousers, a black silk jumpsuit, a mini cargo vest, motorcycle trousers and a metallic blue calfskin biker jacket adorned with 2,500 studs.
There’s also a top made entirely of “Faith” patches that reflects my enthusiasm for DIY. Most of the designs incorporate my signature shade, electric blue.
Who are your favorite Spanish designers at the moment?
Maria Ke Fisherman, Palomo Spain, and ManeMane.
How do you keep your skin and hair flawless while jet setting across the globe?
I have a very good hairdresser in Milan, and I take very good care of my skin and hair. I also do facials and hair treatments very often.
What products do you use to get that perfect blue hair?
For my hair I use Shu Uemura hair products. I use the red line shampoo and hair mask. Then, I use directions for the hair color.
What did your mother or grandmother teach you about beauty?
They taught me that real beauty is being yourself at any cost.

You are a model, DJ, stylist, influencer, and designer. How do you juggle it all? What is next career step on your bucket list?
