Rita Ora In Saint Laurent - 4th Annual ELLE Women in Music Celebration

Rita Ora took to the red carpet in fine style for the 2013 Elle Women in Music Celebration, held at the Edison Ballroom in New York City yesterday evening.

On occasion, I tend to find Rita’s more theatrical looks a tad jarring, but she was surprisingly poised in this Saint Laurent Spring 2013 look.

Wearing a black tuxedo-style frock with a rise-and-fall hemline, the look features a white sequin-embellished collar, bib and cuffs with a black sheer chiffon pussybow tie.

While I’m unsure whether the hat was added as an homage to the runway look or just to cover the fact that she needs to touch up her roots, I find the overall look aesthetically pleasing – much to my surprise, I have to add.

Signature red lippie, ocean-blue nails, black Saint Laurent ankle-strap pumps and a selection of gold linked rings completed her look.
