Rita Ora has answered her critics by releasing a glamorous new picture of her as Mia Grey in the upcoming movie "Fifty Shades of Grey." Rita was recently ridiculed for her look as Christian Grey's sister Mia in the movie's earlier poster. But the newly released poster shows the actress in her glamorous avatar. It also means that Rita's role as Mia Grey has undergone a major change now that the release date of the movie has been set for Feb 14, 2015.

Rita was called by names such as "a drag" when the first look posters were released last month. The 26-year-old actress and singer has, however, listened to her critics and come out with a sexy new poster of her and shared it with her fans on Instagram. In the black and white picture, Rita dons a longer bob and has smoky eyes. The backlash affected the actress to such an extent that she even mentioned in her comments that she "likes" this look. "I like this. I can't wait till next year! #2015 #bots!," Rita captioned the picture, which can be seen here.

The "Hot Right Now" songstress plays billionaire Christian Grey's adopted sister Mia in the eagerly awaited movie. Her new look was liked by many of her fans who commented on Rita's picture with adjectives such as "beautiful," "cute" and "perfect." In contrast, her first picture faced wide criticism from her fans and can be viewed here. The actress received some really harsh comments on her previous picture where she is supporting a very short bob that makes her look slightly "old" for the character, according to the comments posted by the fans of the movie on her old picture.

"Not doubting her acting skills if they picked her, but I thought Mia was 16. She looks way older than 16," writes Emily Anne on Facebook page while commenting on Rita's old look as Mia. Several other fans also have commented on Mia's choice of clothes and her makeup, which according to them is not in accordance with the character of Mia described in E.L James novel "Fifty Shades of Grey." The much anticipated movie tells the story of a kinky billionaire Christian Grey, played by Jamie Dornan and Anastasia Steele, played by Dakota Johnson.
