Rita Ora In John Rocha – Brit Awards 2014 After-Parties

Rita Ora In John Rocha - Brit Awards 2014 After-Parties

Following her bright-yellow showing on the red carpet at the Brit Awards 2014, Rita Ora dialled things down for the Brit Awards parties on Wednesday (February 19).

When I say dialled down, I only mean colour-wise, as she wore a John Rocha Fall 2014 sheer dress with floral appliqués topped off with extravagant volumes of ruffles around the neckline.

Opting not to wear her hair up, the red lip returned, with a fierce pair of Giuseppe Zanotti gladiator boots and the same jewels she wore to the main event completing her look.

I know what you’re thinking (“damn this woman and that red lip”), but it does work with her dramatic look on this occasion.

Rita Ora In Prada – Brit Awards 2014

Rita Ora In Prada - Brit Awards 2014

Rita Ora looked stunning on the red carpet this evening (February 19) at the Brit Awards 2014 held at the O2 Arena in London.

Despite letting out a huge cheer for her lack of red lipstick, I’m also applauding her gorgeous bright yellow Prada plunging gown with the brands signature green rhinestones lining the frock.

A monumental improvement over the Marchesa gown from last night’s Elle Style Awards, it has to be said.

The colour is bold, the makeup much improved, the jewels perfectly OTT for the event; and even the hair isn’t so brash as it often can be.

Miuccia is on quite a roll. Pray it continues.

One of the best of the night. Do you agree?

Rita Ora In Marchesa – Elle Style Awards 2014

Rita Ora In Marchesa - Elle Style Awards 2014

Rita Ora made a show-stopping appearance on the red carpet of the Elle Style Awards 2014 (February 18) held at One Embankment in central London this evening.

Wearing a white floor-length Marchesa Fall 2014 gown with an embroidered body and layered tulle skirt, Rita ensured all eyes were on her at the star-studded event.

While I like the fact she hasn’t opted for the runway inspired romantic styling and instead opted or a much modern, slicked back hair and bold lip pairing, I think the dress looks a little frumpy for the young star.

This is an awards ceremony celebrating the best style makers and designers so I think Rita should have chosen something much more daring and suited to her age. It’s a pretty dress but it would have been much more suited to something like the Oscars. Do you agree?

Rita Ora In Gucci – The Weinstein Company’s Post-BAFTA Party

Rita Ora In Gucci - The Weinstein Company's Post-BAFTA Party

Rita Ora attended The Weinstein Co. post-BAFTA party held at the Rosewood London on Sunday (February 16) in London.

The singer donned a Gucci Spring 2014 black chiffon halter gown with a plunging neckline enriched with pink-hued embroideries.

I’m not a fan of this look on Rita. She doesn’t quite have the height to pull off this dress; the lip, as on most occasions, doesn’t work; and she over-accessorized the look.

You may remember that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore this to the LACMA Art + Film Gala last year.

The majority weren’t too crazy about it on the statuesque model, so I’m guessing that this look gets a resounding thumbs down on Rita.

Rita Ora In Stella McCartney – Heathrow Airport

Rita Ora In Stella McCartney - Heathrow Airport

After rubbing shoulders with the likes of Katie Holmes during New York Fashion Week, Rita Ora was spotted back home in London earlier today (February 12) as she arrived at Heathrow airport.

The British singer was seen without her trademark red lip (hurrah), donning a Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2014 look consisting of a face-print ‘Melton Fortune’ coat, black turtleneck and black trousers with a white stripe.

Perhaps inspired by Jared Leto’s recent red carpet look, she worked a black fedora, completing her look with black Saint Laurent ‘Wyatt’ chained boots.

Do you like this look or are you just happy she’s not wearing red lips here?

Donna Karan Fall 2014 Front Row

Donna Karan Fall 2014 Front Row

Donna Karan, celebrating 30 years in the industry, had a star-studded front row at its New York Fashion Week show, including Rita Ora and Katie Holmes.

Kate Holmes: The actress wore a sexy Donna Karan look, donning a black halter-neck-style leather top nipped in at the waist, and a long pleated on-trend sheer skirt for the evening show. Tousled waves and soft makeup in nude hues rounded out her look. For me, it’s been a very long while since she looked this good.

Rita Ora: The British singer, and star of DKNY’s current ad campaign, took her brand of sexy down a very obvious route, wearing a Donna Karan black sheer-sleeved dress with a plunging neckline and gathered waist. Of course, the red lip was present, with black smoky eyes and sleek tresses. A selection of gold chains to complement her sandals accessorized her look.

Rita Ora In Vionnet – Jay-Z’s Pre Grammy Party

Rita Ora In Vionnet - Jay-Z’s Pre Grammy Party

Rita Ora and Calvin Harris were seen headed to 1 Oak nightclub for Jay-Z’s pre-Grammy Party in West Hollywood, California, which was also attended by Rihanna.

While Calvin looked very handsome in all black, Rita was feeling blue, wearing a Vionnet navy silk tuxedo dress over a black asymmetrical bodysuit with navy tulle detailing from the Spring 2014 collection, which she styled with a selection of gold jewels, a Salvatore Ferragamo navy-satin and plexiglass minaudière with a silver-metal frame, and python strappy sandals.

Having not been a fan of her Lanvin Grammys look, this look is much preferred.

A slicked-back bun and, of course, that ever-present red lip rounded out her look.
