Rita Ora In Thakoon – 2013 Met Gala

Rita Ora In Thakoon - 2013 Met Gala

Sporting her trademark red lip colour, Rita Ora joined a host of stars who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala in New York City this evening.

The British singer wore a Thakoon look which was created especially for this event.

I had expected her dress to be covered in safety pins, but her ivory dress with an asymmetrical top and cutout waist was accented with gold-chain embroidery.

More gold bling was to be had with Tasaki jewels and a gold clutch that completed her look.

Are you glad Rita put the try-hard on pause tonight, or were you expecting more?

    I was actually expecting her to go all out. But sometimes less is more. in her case, this is working.

    I think her hair and makeup are better than I’ve seen them here, but though I like her in white and the concept of the chain detail is good, I don’t like the half-shapless, half-trashy style of the gown.

    I wasn’t expecting Rita, of all people, to tone it down. But it was a wise move imo.
    I’m not wowed by her gown but she won’t make my worst dressed list so yaaaaay.

    I like that she toned it down a bit, she looks really good, cool and sexy yet effortless.

    Her face is flawless, I want that lip color for myself, and the dress is fresh with flavor. Love.

    I don’t know if I would’ve liked this gown on someone else or only itself, because it’s very revealing, but Rita makes this work. Actually I love this look. I’m so glad that she didn’t overpower her look. She looks amazing.

    Never thought I’s going to say this about Rita, but she looks phenomenal.

    I surprisingly like this on Rita. Nice to see her in something a bit more refined than usual.

    Not a fan of this look.

    best thing about this? that orange hue lip, on the white… otherwise no.

    Not tacky as usual but a bit boring. I do like her hair and makeup.

    Except for the roots, she’s actually looking really good. Not on theme for the event, though.
