Rita Ora worked a fashion-forward look on Thursday at the star-studded Serpentine summer party. The singer opted for a statement monochromatic ensemble, teaming a black velvet Chanel dress with a pair of white lace up boots. Rita’s head-turning gown featured a pleated organza maxi skirt, a backless bodice and a high neck. In terms of beauty, the 26-year-old styled her long, blonde hair up in a sleek low ponytail, which she tied with a black ribbon and accessorised with a dazzling array of silver hair pins.

Make-up wise, she worked a striking cat-eye with black liquid liner, and applied lashings of mascara to enhance her lashes. A subtle sweep of rose-hued blush highlighted her cheeks and a vibrant red lip completed her stand-out look.

Rita has long been known for her fun and fearless approach to fashion, seeing her dress in many colour-pop prints and show-stopping dresses. Earlier in the month, she caught everyone’s attention when she stepped out in New York in a lime green trouser suit by London-based fashion label Osman. Rita look fabulous in the fluorescent-hued separates – an oversized feminine tailored jacket and cropped straight leg trousers.

Again, accessories were also key to her statement outfit – with Rita opting for an assortment of necklaces and oversized Jennifer Fisher hoops. Silver Stuart Weitzman sandals completed her ensemble. Meanwhile, at this year’s star-studded amfAR Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in France, Rita turned up in an ultra-feminine Paula Cademartori dress.

The blush and white design featured a feathered embellished bodice and sleeves, with the below the knee cut showcasing her sculpted, sun-kissed bare legs. Rita styled her hair in a volume heavy quiff and accessorised with oversized silver drop earrings.
