Some celebrities prepare for summer with cutout bikinis, but Rita Ora brought the heat in a figure-hugging liquid latex dress this season. In a June 20 Instagram post, Ora looked red-hot in behind-the-scenes footage from her new Porsche Australia ad. “Been a hell of a ride,” she captioned an Instagram video of herself striking a pose in front of one of the brand’s luxury cars. Ora styled the ensemble with a set of red heeled sandals. Each shoe featured strappy ankle detailing and a circular heel reminiscent of the wheels on a car.
Standout details from Ora’s skintight dress included a set of stringy spaghetti straps across her shoulders and flattering ruching up and down the bodice. The back of the gown featured a back-to-hem zipper with a circular pull that created a subtle knee-high slit between the back of her legs. Together, the dress’s glossy fabric and chrome detailing beautifully mirrored the luxury finish of a classic sports car.
The singer completed the outfit with a lavish set of chrome accessories, including stacked bangles on both wrists, silver drop earrings, and a plunging necklace. To complement the cherry-red fabric of her dress, her beauty team rounded out the look with a scarlet lip and swept-back waves. In the comments section, Ora’s mom, Vera Ora, praised her daughter’s look with three heart-eye emoji.
While it’s not every day that a celebrity takes style inspiration from a sports car, Ora is well-versed in unconventional fashion moments. (See: her past experiments with the liquid latex trend, the naked dress trend, the micro miniskirt, the naked top, and the controversial thong boots.) Last month, the star also turned heads in a cone-bra corset paired with matching black underwear, tights, and lace-up boots on the Eurovision semifinal stage in Liverpool.
With just weeks to go before the release of her junior album, “You & I,” we have a feeling Ora’s summer wardrobe is about to heat up in a major way.
