Rita Ora In Veni Vici Couture & Sorapol – Coca Cola Contour Centenary Bar Photocall

Rita Ora In Veni Vici Couture & Sorapol - Coca Cola Contour Centenary Bar Photocall

Rita Ora attended a photocall to mark the 100th anniversary of the iconic Coca-Cola Bottle held at the opening of the Contour Centenary Bar on the morning of Thursday (March 19) in London, England.

I know what you’re thinking, that is a lot of gown for a morning photocall, but 1. This is Rita Ora whose motto is ‘more is more’ and 2. This is a centenary celebration of a super brand, so a big gown adequately serves the occasion.

The choice of red was a no brainer, considering this is the colour associated with the brand, so Rita channelled her inner Jessica Rabbit wearing a Veni Vici Couture strapless peplum gown with a flowing train.

I love the styling, which includes waved tresses à la Veronica Lake, plus her favoured red lip which serves her well here.

Once inside the venue, Rita had a second bombshell moment changing into another red gown; this time she wore a more sultry satin halter number from London label Sorapol.

Oozing with plenty of sex appeal, what I particularly loved about this look were the Sophia Webster ‘Share A Coco-Cola’ pumps from the designers Fall 2015 collection which couldn’t have been a more apt way to round out her look.

Rita Ora In Jean Paul Gaultier – Scotch Club

Rita Ora In Jean Paul Gaultier - Scotch Club

Rita Ora turned heads on Wednesday (March 18) as she hit up the Scotch Club with rapper will.i.am, who is her co-judge on ‘The Voice UK’.

The platinum-blonde beauty donned a sexy black Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2015 suit, with one half of the jacket cut away revealing a metallic silver halter bra underneath.

I have to say I love the boldness of the look.

Yes, it could’ve been super tacky, but wearing it with such an air of confidence, the absence of the overplayed red lip and appearing not to be trying so hard ensured that this look won me over.

Rita Ora & Kim Kardashian In Atsuko Kudo – Mert & Marcus House of Love Party for Madonna

Rita Ora & Kim Kardashian In Atsuko Kudo - Mert & Marcus House of Love Party for Madonna

Rita Ora attended the Mert & Marcus House of Love party for Madonna held at Annabel’s on Thursday (February 26) in London, England.

Going from sultry in Zuhair Murad Couture at the BRIT Awards, on this occasion she wore a skin-tight pink latex dress from Atsuko Kudo.

Sadly for her, Kim Kardashian had the same idea, wearing a high-neck version of the same dress, which she styled with PVC strap sandals and a fur stole.

Who wore it better? Neither, I would say. This constraining fetish-wear garment does not look especially breathable or comfortable and perhaps should be confined to a boudoir rather than the red carpet.

Rita Ora In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2015 BRIT Awards

Rita Ora In Zuhair Murad Couture - 2015 BRIT Awards

Rita Ora was back in London after a busy Oscar weekend for the 2015 BRIT Awards held at the O2 Arena on Wednesday (February 25).

My issue with Rita is that I find her frustratingly inconsistent.

She stunned on the Oscars red carpet, made us question a lot of things upon sight of her butt cheek in Donna Karan Atelier, and here, at least for me, she wore her best look of the three, looking amazing in Zuhair Murad Couture.

Oozing sexy appeal in a very chic and elegant way, this Spring 2015 Couture bronze silk tulle jumpsuit with plunging neckline and cascading crystal and sequin embroidery doesn’t scream try-hard.

I’m singing hallelujah for the continual omission of the red lip – it would’ve been so brash here – and the simple styling.

This is yet another check off my red carpet wish list that I wanted to see on Jennifer Lopez.

Ironically, the dress I had picked for Rita Ora was the dress Jennifer Lopez wore to the Vanity Fair party.

Rita Ora In Donna Karan Atelier – 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Rita Ora In Donna Karan Atelier - 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Rita Ora attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar party held at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

Feeling rather thirsty following her performance at the main event, the British songstress wore a side butt revealing gown I was surprised to learn was Donna Karan Atelier.

I like the idea and the style, however, Donna (and Rita) lost me at the mesh part which reveals too much at the back for my liking.

This also gave me a rather strong feeling of déjà vu, taking me back to Jaimie Alexander’s Azzaro ‘Thor’ premiere look.
